Jennifer Klanika's photographic process mirrors her personality: genuine, warm, welcoming, and approachable. Her perspective on portraiture and lifestyle photography is focused within the spirit of personal connection. She strives to capture extraordinary lives and personalities in portraits that bridge the human experience between photographer and subject, brand and customer, editor and reader. Jennifer has always admired brands that exude longevity, timelessness, and have an emotional connection to their customers. Her own brand celebrates her Texas Czech heritage, a lifelong love of horses, and the day-to-day gifts of life on her ranch with her family. Whether she’s making portraits, product images, or is shooting situational lifestyle, Jennifer’s photographs are compositionally clean and always created within the environmental context of real life. In this way, the subject is more at “home” and at ease, which gives her naturalistic portraits a strong sense of authenticity. Her product work’s styling and execution helps round-out her storytelling into a full and compelling brand narrative.
Jennifer has won numerous awards for her photographs, including the prestigious Julia Margaret Cameron Award as well as citations from the Dallas Center for Photography and Photographer’s Forum Magazine.
She is available locally and nationally to produce and shoot brand libraries, print campaigns, digital assets, case studies, annual reports for agencies, brands, design firms, corporations, institutions, and magazines.
Jennifer is based in the Austin, Texas and San Antonio area where she lives on a ranch with her husband, her young son, and a few happy cows…
