about jena

Hey there! I'm Jena.

I have a Madonna–style space in my teeth, and I try not to take life too seriously. I am addicted to photography because I want to show every single person I meet how beautiful their life already is — especially my fellow Mommas! I’m here to slow things down for a bit so you can soak it all in… if just for the few hours that we’re together. Some sun, games, snuggles, and un–interrupted family time makes for amazing portraits. I’ll make you all run around barefoot and let your kids be kids — splashing in puddles or eating popsicles while I make jokes about their stinky feet. My portraits are all about the connection you have with the ones that you love — we are certainly not a "look here and smile" sort of studio!
my favorite parts of life:
  • coffee + chocolate
  • country music
  • dancing around the kitchen with my kids
  • being un-apologetically yourself
  • tequila with your best friends
  • having FUN everywhere you go
  • being overly optimistic

This is Meagan!

Meagan is our right-hand woman here at J.Alviti Photography - we are so thankful for all of her help behind the scenes, keeping everything organized, assisting with our newborns, and using her awesome skills as a certified beautician and hairdresser to pamper our clients with professional hair and makeup. We have the same love for animals, kids, cookies, and having a good sense of humor - We couldn't run this ship without her!

the experience

J.Alviti Photography is a boutique photography studio, which means that I place my focus not only on capturing your family, but also on creating a luxurious experience throughout the whole process! I believe that portraits are much more than a snapshot for the day; they are the key to never letting a wonderful memory fade and the window to the life and soul of those captured for generations after to enjoy. Custom portrait sessions begin at $250, and clients typically invest $800 - $1200 on their beautiful heirloom products - though there is no purchase minimum required as we want you to walk away with the items that are PERFECT for you and your family!

Custom Portrait Sessions — start at $250

Newborn Sessions — start at $350

Wedding Collections — start at $3000
