2020 Fall Mini-Sessions

I will be offering 3 dates of Mini-Sessions this year. Mini-sessions take place at a pre-selected Marin County location and are 20 minutes long. You will receive a smaller proof gallery, but still a great mix of photos. If you are looking for a quick update, or photos for your holiday card, this is perfect for you.

The rate is $350 which includes your choice of (3) fully retouched high-res images. Additional digital images and print products will be available for separate purchase. Five appointments are available each day.

Please check this page for updated availability! (last updated 10/9/20)

All mini-session dates for 2020 are fully booked. Please contact me if you would like to be put on my waitlist.


Email me directly at jenskinner@comcast.net to book! The full session fee of $350 will be due at the time of booking. I’ll send you specific details & instructions about exactly where to meet once your session is confirmed.

Senior Photos Celebrate 2020 Graduates

Senior photos are a rite of passage and mark a unique time of life! This year, honoring our 2020 graduates has felt even more meaningful. My senior sessions are known for being a fun, uplifting, and relaxed experience. Besides being treasured family keepsakes, your senior can use his/her photos for graduation announcements, applications, social media, sorority rush photos, and whenever a headshot is needed. It is a joyful and hopeful time worth capturing! I encourage other family members to join in the Senior photo sessions too.


Shelter-At-Home Photo Fundraising Project for COVID-19 Healthcare

Shelter-at-Home photos/Front Steps Project

Dear Friends & Clients,

April 18th project update: I’m happy to announce that this project exceeded my expectations in every way and has been immensely gratifying. More than 40 families participated, raising over $4000 for MarinHealth. I have decided to pause this project for the time being, but hope to connect with more families in the very near future. 

Here’s my original letter:

We are all doing something big right now. We’ve all committed to keeping our community healthy & safe, which may mean you’re at home with family members spending time together in unexpected ways.

As a photographer, I feel compelled to document this time in some way and, in the meantime, do something useful to support our community. My goal is to bring our community together and support local healthcare needs during this unprecedented time by photographing local families at home together in exchange for your donation to the MarinHealth Foundation, which will benefit Marin General Hospital and help fill critical needs during the COVID-19 crisis & beyond.

Many of us have family members back home together for a very rare moment in time, and I would like to help you capture this togetherness! I will be doing neighborhood walks over the next 2 weeks, and will photograph your family posed on your front porch or front yard (while adhering to strict social distancing).

I would like for our photos to tell a story. You can wear whatever you like, and I encourage you to consider including items that might express how you’ve been spending your time sheltering in place (e.g. baking/playing guitar/painting/building things/a new hobby?) If you have college students at home, perhaps they would like to wear a shirt displaying their college. Include your pets too if you’d like.

My goal is to raise $1500 by April 20th. If you choose to participate, your suggested donation of $50 (or any amount) includes:

  • A 10-minute photo session with Jennifer
  • Jennifer will select the 3 best images for you and email your digital files to you within 48 hours of your session

I will be visiting neighborhoods in Ross, Kentfield, Larkspur, Greenbrae, San Anselmo and San Rafael the first 2 weeks of April.

This project was originally inspired by The Front Steps Project in Needham, MA, which has been featured in USA Today, the NBC Nightly News, and People Magazine for its community front porch photos during the Covid-19 crisis.
