Jennie Bishop, White Wave Photography

HI, I’m Jennie and I LOVE BABIES! Their smell, wrinkly little toes and adorable chubby cheeks just light up my soul and make me run straight for my camera.

Although I’ve photographed many different people and events over my 15+ year career, my favorite clients are the smallest clients, which is why I specialize in maternity, birth and newborn photography. Capturing that rare and special moment a parent meets their baby for the first time is truly magical. I am so fortunate and honored that my birth clients invite me into such a personal time in their lives. When we work together, you can expect a relaxed and fun photography experience.

Worried about what to wear, location, time of day, and if the kids are going to have a complete meltdown? No problem, I’ve got you covered! (THIS is where my logistics degree and mom skills come in handy!) We’ll chat often leading up to your shoot day and I’ll send you suggestions, tips and tricks to get you and any others in the shoot prepared. On photo day you can just leave it all to me! I want your portrait session to be like hanging out with a good friend, not going to the dentist, which is why I come ready with ideas on how best to capture those real family moments in a comfortable, casual way. My goal is to have you and your family smiling and laughing with the first click of my camera.

  • Chiropractic is a highly-advanced, scientific, and proven treatment that can reduce inflammation, pain, sickness and disease. Chiropractic combines biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health. That means your diagnosis – and treatment – will be based on sound scientific and chiropractic principles.Chiropractic Care. Book your appointment now
  • True Cellular Detox works by improving cellular function so the body is able to detox and restore itself, as designed. The approach incorporates three components, which are systemically integrated. The first is the 5R's of True Cellular Detox and Healing, a roadmap to fixing toxin damaged cellular pathways that explains the epidemic of inflammatory driven chronic and "unexplainable" diseases. While the 5R's are applied to fix cellular detox pathways upstream, natural downstream detox pathways must also be kept open and supported, which is component number two. Including "true" binders to assist in the removal of toxins is the third component and begets the name of the system: True Cellular Detox.
