Jen O'Dell has shot both of my daughter's birthday parties for the past 6 years, taken family photos and shot my head shots. Jen's work is exceptional. She knows how to capture the moments, wrangle a toddler into a family photo and make everyone feel comfortable and at the end of the day... she gets the shot and then some!

Jen is so easy to work with. She made me feel relaxed an confident during our shoot. Its so inspiring to work with a photographer who captures your essence, not just your physical attributes. Jen is a pro through and through.

Jennifer did a photo session for my family of 4 and I can't recommend her enough. My now 4 year old daughter Mia usually can't stop for a minute but Jennifer managed to pull out over an hour session by encouraging both my kids to participate and giving them small challenges. The pictures came out great, even though my husband isn't photogenic, lol.  We got what we paid for and then some, but most of all we enjoyed the time spent with Jen photographing us.  We shoot with her at least twice a year!

Jen photographed my newborn daughter at just 6 days old and I could not be happier with the photos. Jen is very creative and has a way with infants to ensure they are calm during the shoot. My daughter started to get fussy during the shoot and Jen was able to calm her in seconds. I can't say enough about how satisfied and happy I am with the photos.

For the past 8 years Jennifer O'Dell has provided professional head shots for my website, business cards and various other professional avenues.  In addition, she's captured amazing family shots.  Being photographed is not fun for all, but Jennifer's positive attitude and fun demeanor always brings out the best in all of us.  Highly recommend her! Great photos!

Jen is an amazing photographer at the top of her game. Her eye for detail gives each shot a very unique feel. I could not be happier with my photos from Jen and cannot recommend her enough!  She really knows what she's doing and is such a delight to work with.  Thank you for my beautiful photos Jen!
