What is it about a portrait that draws you in? The expression on your baby's face...the reminder of the first few days of their life...the memory of those tiny flutters deep inside your tummy? These are the feelings I want to capture for you. As a busy mom of four boys, I understand the challenges in getting everyone ready for a traditional photo session, which is why I come to you!
My name is Jenn Brookover and I am a newborn and maternity portrait specialist in San Antonio, Texas. My passion is capturing fleeting memories of expanding bellies, curly newborns and growing families for clients searching for a custom experience. Over the past 10 years I have photographed over 1,200 newborns in their homes. My work has been featured in numerous magazines including Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy, Our Kids SA and assorted paper craft publications.
Originally from St. Louis, I moved to San Antonio after college and spent the next 8 years working as a marketing rep and sales trainer for two Fortune 500 companies. I was then blessed to be able to stay home with my boys who at the time were ages 6, 4, 2 and newborn (did I mention THEY ARE ALL BOYS!). In 2005, my husband said I needed to do something besides go shopping and the only thing I love more than shopping is babies, oh, and taking pictures.
I come to your home 6-16 days after you give birth to your baby. But I can only do that if you let me know WAY ahead of time that you want to book a session so we can put you on our expectant mom list. Then we choose your exact date and time once your little one actually arrives. Families who book with me are looking for more than “just the CD", they want the experience, the service, and the final artwork that comes with custom photography. I take only a few sessions a week and only one a day so that I can focus on you and your family.
I can also help you document your pregnancy with maternity portraits and, of course, continue to be your family photographer as your baby grows. If you have big kids or fur babies, I would love to photograph them as well.
When I’m not cuddling babies, you can find me at my boys sporting events, working out (have to keep up with the toddlers!), or heading up to Lake LBJ for some R&R.
