Welcome to Jen Moran Photography! Lifestyle photographer specializing in food, chefs & kitchens; product photography; individual, family & group portraits; urban, nature, & farm life.

Life moves me, and I try to capture it in the process: while biking, hiking, gathering with friends and family, exploring Chicago (& its kitchens!), New Orleans, Florida's coast, Arizona's desert or Wisconsin's woods and countryside... or simply cooking at home. I am a photographer, blogger, cook, gardener, illustrator & crafter- check out our sister site, acornhillstudio.com! Thanks for stopping by! Oh- and if you'd like me to capture life's moments for you, please contact me- I'd love to hear from you!

Jenny was recommended to my by a great friend of mine for her wedding pictures. I was so happy by the end results, Jenny went beyond my expectations she did her homework on my wedding location and she suggested awesome places and ideas around there, my pictures were so romantic, beautiful and personalized. I've seen other people's work and I haven't seen anyone put as much heart and creativity as her.
