We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Glenn and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jennifer, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
I recently read a crazy statistic that said photography businesses have an 85% turnover rate! So many people jump in not knowing all that the job entails. In this kind of market you will see someone opening a photography business all the time and it does get discouraging. Novice photographers really don’t understand their CODB {cost of doing business} and charge extremely low prices which devalues the art and can’t sustain their businesses in the long run. I have worked really hard to get where I am and learn the ins/outs of the business. I’m in my 9th year and this entire time I just keep striving to be the best that I can be. We can all improve in so many areas and are continually learning. That is why I keep going. I love what I do and I want to share my art with others!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have always loved photography, shooting images of anything and everything. I was able to really get into the craft when I left my teaching position to stay home with my first child. She was my muse. It was not easy trying to build a business. I was not very good at all in the beginning! What made the difference was practicing and learning and not giving up. I went from shooting every important life event for clients to just focusing my brand on high school seniors. I really found my niche as I enjoy not only shooting senior images, but styling them and producing all of their top of the line senior print products and video. They are the most fun!

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I’m pretty south DFW so my itinerary may differ than many in the city. I’m a country girl! With that said, Waco is my jam. Shopping and food galore! I love Spice Village, The Findery, all of the various antique stores, eclectic stores, of course everything Magnolia. Waco is a cool town and you can hit the Czech Stop Bakery in West, TX on the way and way back! It’s that good! I totally daydream about Joanna Gaines calling me to come do a shoot for her family and then wanting to come redo my farmhouse for me! A girl can dream…HA!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Carrie Cotton my first mentor that showed me the senior ropes. Love her! She dedicated a lot of time to me out of the kindness of her heart. She has branched off from photography into being an author. Congrats Carrie!
