About Me

My name is Jeni Friend…you can call me jenifriend.  🙂  Hi.


I did not begin my life as a photographer.  In fact, I didn’t even own a real camera until 2007…I just always used the Kodak instant cameras when I wanted to capture a moment.  I did not spend my time in the photography studio, rather the dance studio.  I was not inclined to be a photographer.  Yet somehow, it happened.  It began with my niece being born in December 2006, and I wanted to be the person who captured all of her moments.  All of her smiles.  All of her tears.  All of her joyous adventures.  I soon after received a Sony DSC-H7, and thus began my journey into photography education and exploration.  I had no idea this would be the place I’d end up, but I am so happy I am finally here!!

I relish in capturing the love and exuberance on a couples face, 054the ferociousness of a model’s stare, the angelic innocence of a child as they erupt into giggles and grins, the wonderment and joy of a mommy-to-be, and the refreshing essence of nature in all its seasons of life.

Based in a suburb of Kansas City, I shack up with my two fur babies:  Peaches (a drooling fur ball feline) and Sasha (an ornery meow box).  I love home decorating, natural living and dancing in my underwear.  Kansas State is my Alma Mater and I bleed purple year round.  Go Cats!!
