Jen Snyder Design bio picture
  • About Jen

    God has created each of us to reflect His glory, and I love to capture His handiwork in each of my artistic specialties. Through my photography, I strive to capture wonderful moments and give you breath taking creative images that you will cherish. Through my paintings, I offer pieces that are inspirational, uplifting, and that will also look fabulous on the wall. Through my style sessions, I assist my clients in the selection of clothing, give ideas and offer advice that will encourage and boost confidence so you can recognize your true beauty. As a child, Jen loved art and hoped to be an artist one day. She pursued her dream and received her degree in Photography and Fine Art from College of Charleston. Since then, her work and services have been displayed and used in galleries, businesses, churches and homes throughout the country. Jen loves that she gets to wake up everyday and pursue her dream while helping shift other people's perspectives to see the beauty they often miss. Jen Snyder resides in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband and 2 children.

First 2 Paintings are ready for the Fall 2012- “The Looking Glass” & “Due North”

 

I know I said I would not have any new pieces until later this Fall and Winter- but could not contain my inspiration from the Lord and excitement to begin these new pieces, so over the past month I have created the first two.  The verses I have used for my inspiration resonate deeply with my life right now, so creating the piece from them felt so natural.   I also incorporated lots of new vintage treasures in each one to tie in the meaning and give the piece deeper significance and history too! I hope you enjoy and will be sure to keep you posted on the painting in line.  I may just start another one here this week- who knows!!

Revelation Series- Exciting Updates!!

I am getting ready to start more of the  one-of-a-kind “Revelation” Series mixed media paintings I started back in Spring 2011. I had such interest and great reception, almost the entire series has sold.  I am so excited and more inspired than ever to get more created and will be adding vintage findings such as compasses, clock faces, pins, skeleton keys, old buttons, parts, gears and even piano keys to this next set,  so keep checking back for new ones as early as Late Fall 2012 now!

In the meantime I have added a slight redesign to 5 that I have left in the current collection- I have added vintage items to the remaining 5 Revelation Series pieces so they will flow with the new ones I will be starting this Fall-  I am so excited about finding these old treasures and giving them new life again on my paintings  that help creative visions about God’s word and truth.

Beautiful Life- The Adcock Family Portrait Shoot

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.  Smell the rain, and feel the wind.  Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” -  Ashley Smith

What a fun shoot at the beautiful Duke Gardens on a Summer Evening. What yummy warm lighting we had and of course gorgeous setting that changes with each season there.   The Adcock Family was so darn cute with their set of 3 year old twins and adorable 5 year old girl.  All three kids were constantly making me smile and also got me moving since they loved to explore and play (as most kids do). I really love the  images from this shoot because I feel like I captured so many real shots of their family- running, playing, and having fun together.  I always strive to capture people at their best, and usually it is when they are enjoying life and each other and not staring at the camera.  You also get so many real priceless expressions when you capture life in it’s essence- nothing strained or forced- just natural beauty shines through.
