Hey there! I’m Jen Araya, and most people call me exactly that! Ever since I was young it’s just rolled out like one name. Most days you will find me laughing and smiling, and most likely hanging out with my family. I’m THRILLED to have my new best friend around all the time too, my daughter Vivienne. It’s important to me to be present in those types of moments, and live life to the fullest! I also have a mild obsession with the color mint...
Those are the things I’m passionate about in my personal life. For my professional life, my clients are just as important. I love making sure my clients have an exclusive experience. I want them to feel as though they are my only client, and love being present with them every step of the process no matter what kind of shoot we’re working on.
I believe in creating a connection with my clients. My goal is to capture intimate moments for my couples, and to capture your story in a first class manner to take back to your everyday life.
When I’m not busy working on photography, and the weather cooperates, you can catch me at the beach. During the summer I love to lounge with a glass of champagne in hand and my toes in the sand. During the winter you can find me on the ski slopes. Also, I LOVE TO TRAVEL! I spent a semester studying abroad, and I’ve traveled to Australia with my brothers. Recently I got to cross off one of my husband’s bucket list items and ski in Whistler, Canada!
I’m half Costa Rican, and my father’s family still lives there. I’ve traveled there numerous times.
I love appetizers and desserts! Yes, I have a sweet tooth, and I even tried to create our wedding menu based on this!
I met my husband playing against each other at indoor soccer.
I LOVE being a mom to my daughter Vivienne! My husband and I went through IVF, and it was worth all the shots, doubts and difficult moments. If you want to hear more about my experience don’t hesitate to ask, I would love to share with you, listen and be there for support!
I have a learning disability and dislike writing! I had to overcome some fears to make my dream job (this business) a reality!
My husband Sean, the most caring person you will ever meet, my biggest supporter and partner in crime. My daughter Vivienne, whose smile lights up a room, is my new best friend! Her crinkled nose expression and chubby cheeks are simply the best. My world! I am the dreamer, planner, goal-oriented task, do-er, lover of the color mint! Wannabe skier and supermom. This is my sweet family!
