I’m Jen Klementti. I’m a photographer, creative director, and coach. I help entrepreneurs and businesses shine by creating images for their brand that will strengthen their online presence and tell their brand story. I provide visual branding and creative direction consulting. I also coach entrepreneurs how to authentically create their visual brand, and ultimately attract their target clientele.
I create art for your business, your life, and your home.
I believe in living a creative life, however that looks to you. I think we weren’t meant to be pigeon-holed into a certain career, or way of doing business. I have MANY different interests and for years, I struggled with how to integrate them all into my brand. For example, I had experts tell me that I could not be a portrait photographer and also book advertising or editorial clients. Yet, since day one, I have successfully attracted clients in all these genres.
I WAS ALWAYS THE GIRL IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ORGANIZING THE ARTISAN MARKETS WITH LOCAL KIDS, CREATING MY OWN LINE OF BEADED JEWELRY AND PAINTED ROCKS TO SELL. OF COURSE, I GREW UP TO BECOME A CREATIVE ENTREPRENEUR.
I have also had others tell me that I can’t be a fine art photographer and also do commercial work. Yet, I have sold many limited edition fine art prints over the past 15 years. I was able to support my personal fine art photography through commercial, portrait and wedding work. In fact, some of the best commercial shoots that I have been hired for were when the client booked me BECAUSE of my fine art photographs which have a distinct visual style. I always bring a fine art approach to every photography commission.
I would listen to so many people, coaches and mentors in the creative industry who all said that you just can’t succeed in building a multi-passionate business or brand.
Well, I believe differently.
I believe that the best brands stay true to who they are, whether an independent business owner or a large well-known brand. To set yourself apart in the market, you need to know exactly who you are, even if that evolves, as it always will. Having multiple passions and strengths allows you to grow your brand when your goals change or when you want to pivot with the direction of your business or add in additional services or product.
My brand has grown and evolved so much over the years, however, my core values have always remained the same. Authentic. Inspired. Integrity. Connection.
PhilosophyPhotography is very experiential, a way of life, it's about seeing the subtleties of our existence. As a photographer, I often submerge myself into my surroundings, keeping an open mind and being aware of the spontaneity and interaction of life around me. Photography is art, intuition and poetic expression. Contact Jennifer

“Photographs capture the honesty in life and enable us to see and remember the subtleties of our existence. A day. An event. A moment in time. Photography helps to define our lives by encapsulating who we are, where we were and every tiny detail that fades with memory. The language of photography is not confined to words or sentences. It is a language that transcends borders and communicates directly with the soul.” – Jennifer Klementti
