Taking The Plunge!

I have been praying for a long time for doors to open up so that I could use my passion for photography more. If you know anything about me or if you ask any member of my family they will tell you that I live my life through my camera lens. I have a wonderful friend who knows that this is my passion and dream and for my birthday she bought me back drops and lights for me to use in "my" studio. After receiving this gift I spent months trying to figure out what I would call my "business" if I did strike out in this world of photography and kept coming up with nothing. I knew that when the time was right and that if I kept praying that God would cover all of my bases. So two weeks a phrase kept repeating in my mind "Jammi's Lens" but it wasn't quite right and then it hit me and what my family said made sense and so "Through Jammi's Lens" is now something real! Step one equipment..check, Step Two a name...check.  Three days after deciding on a name I get a phone call from a friend who is also a photographer asking me to assist her with a wedding shoot which brings us to step Four get a paying shoot...check & double check! 

These are a few of the pictures that started my passion and a few of the reasons why I love what I do.  

 Senior Pictures

I was not the paid photographer at this wedding for our friends Chelsey and Hector but since Gabe was in the wedding I brought my camera along and was able to get some fun shots of this day.

 The two oldest Ring Bear and Flower Girl

 My favorite "The Kiss"

School Pictures
John and I decided a long time ago that we were not going to buy school pictures of the kids for two reasons first of all they want to much money for very few pictures and second why pay someone else to take school pictures when I can do it myself. We get the exact pictures that we want and we can get all 5 kids pictures printed for what we use to pay to get one kids school picture. 

So this is me taking the plunge, stepping out on faith and running with both feet on the ground and my eye "Through Jammi's Lens"
If you know of anyone looking for pictures to be done and like what you see here I would appreciate any help with getting started that I can get. We will be spending much of the summer in South Haven and I would love to do family shots there if anyone is interested you can contact me at or 269-501-2086. Looking forward to where God sends me!
