I am a wife, a mother of three, a daughter and a best friend among other titles. I grew up in New Jersey and graduated high school in 2001. I was married to my husband less than a year after my HS graduation and then moved to Virginia with my husband, for two years. That is where we began our family, getting pregnant with our first child six months after we said: “I do.”
In 2010 I began to tinker with photography being a, “shoot and burn momtographer.” I soon realized I couldn’t just go buy a new camera and open a facebook page, claiming to be a photographer; “Fly by night” was not my idea of success or a valid option. I attended numerous seminars, training workshops and nagged, in my opinion, the best mentor photographer one could get. After getting the proper experience and training my husband and I began to open my first legitimate photography business, What The Flash Photography. I started to photograph families, small events and weddings within New Jersey professionally. I have been an assistant and second shooter to many great photographers and learned from, in my opinion, the best photographers in the business. In the process of all this, we moved and put things on hold. There was a point, once settled in our new home that I wasn’t too sure if I could do this. I was honestly scared to death of failure, especially with the plethora of other photographers in the industry. Friends stuck by my side and inspired me, my husband had a significant hand in motivating me to take on this new endeavor, and all of that support helped push me to where I am today.
Today Sheena Lynn Photography has become known as an elite New Jersey Photography business. We serve all of New Jersey and yes have traveled to New York City, Philadelphia and even Washington Dc for sessions, events, and wedding photography. You never stop learning, so I still take workshops and training courses to fine tune my skills and acquire the knowledge of new equipment as it comes out. Whether you are a business owner in need of professional headshots or looking to book a photographer for your wedding day I look forward to hearing from you and offering my professional services.
