A Note from the Artist

Behind the Proverbial Curtain

       Hello and welcome! My name is Jennifer, and as the wife of a pastor and a mother of two, I find myself increasingly busy. As, I'm sure, you can relate. But, as an "Artist By Heart," I feel it's important to slow down and smell the roses (aka Coffee). And I like to make a conscious effort to invest myself into things that are beautiful. Because of this, my interests have begun to span all across the art scene. These joys include Photography (obv.), Music, Writing, and sometimes even a reclaimed piece of furniture or two…or five ;).

Artist By Heart Photography LLC made its beginnings over a decade ago and I have since become Poplar Bluff’s Premier Birth Photographer.

Being the daughter of a Surgical Tech made specializing in Birth Photography seamless as I practically grew up in the hospital setting. This made communicating with staff, understanding policy, and having proper bedside manner second nature. But I certainly don’t take my job for granted.

When someone chooses to let me into to their private spaces; their intimate and emotional places; that trust brings with it a beautiful friendship which I cherish. I do not take my job as your "memory preserver" lightly. And I thank you for letting me bear witness to the beauty you create. 

As a Christian, I know that God has called me to love the world and leave a positive impact on those around me. So, photography is my way of stepping out into the world, beyond my little family to hopefully bring something beautiful into your life. It is my hope that my art will be a blessing to you and your family for generations to come.

I look forward to meeting you, 
Your Artist By Heart
