Not Fade Away
The Photography of Jen Sheppard

Welcome! I've long been the resident photographer among family and friends. But moving to bucolic Morris County, New Jersey, and becoming a mom have both renewed old and afforded me new inspiration. Farmhouses! Horses! Children! You get the picture, literally. I'm a self-taught photographer who sees picture taking as a creative endeavor. Whereas I appreciate camera manipulation and posed and structured photographs, I much prefer to work with the sun's natural light in candid settings. I'm also a licensed social worker; I see my subjects, what's inside, the soul, the stories. I not only want you to look at my pictures… I want my pictures to look at you. I've been called a documentarian and, frankly, I like that. It embodies all that I want my work to stand for: creativity, soul, and story-telling.

I specialize in the following photography:
* landscape and architecture (occupied and abandoned, historic);
* childhood; and
* equestrian (competition, horse and rider, barn and field)
