What would you like to know about me?

My name is Jerilynn, a lifelong resident of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, with a passion for photographing the perfect moment in gorgeous, natural surroundings.   I have been married for 30 years to my sweetheart, Leo, who I have known for 36 years.  Together we have two wonderful, adult children, Samantha and Nicolas, which are our pride and joy.  We now have a daughter in law, Miranda who gave us a granddaughter in 2023, Emma - she is our BIGGEST LOVE. We also welcomed a son in law, Bryce in 2023 also.

I have had a passion for photography at an early age, which progressed to sharing my talents with family and friends in 1984, and then to embarking into my own private business in 2008.  By practicing the art of photography, I am able to capture memories so they can last a lifetime.

I am self-taught on natural light photography, sometimes using a flash and I continue to educate myself on new techniques by reading, taking classes and practicing.  I have switched to using DSLR (digital single lens reflex) instead of SLR and work with a professional printing company.   I enjoy taking pictures outdoors year round but can do minimal indoor shots as needed.  I find that natural light is forgiving to work with, as harsh light can make people look hard.  In addition, I enjoy using Mother Nature’s canvas as a beautiful backdrop, as it makes every picture unique.

I enjoy photographing a variety of ages, including children, and events, such as engagements and weddings, but my favorite subject to photograph is high schools seniors.    When I work with my clients, I embody my business name, Simply You.  I like to get to know my client(s) so I can help select the perfect setting and capture the essence of the individual, family or group I am working with.  Being that I am a small business, I am the only photographer so clients will always get my full attention.  I am very particular when taking pictures and when editing, so I will not be happy until I exceed my client’s expectations.  During the photography session, I enjoy having fun and helping my client(s) relax so the smiles seen are genuine. 

I am so thankful that you have visited my web page.    I hope you like what you see!  I would love to be the one you trust to capture life’s moments so you have them forever!


Smile :)
