Who are we?
I'm Natalie, photographer & owner of Jennings Photo
I've tested out a lot of styles since launching Jennings Photo in 2010, and much like the hero in a classic tale, I've found myself back home again.
Home, for me, means noticing small, quiet things. They are the all-important details—objects, expressions, or movements—that give depth and truth to the moments I capture.
That's when I've created my very best work: when there's truth—something real—at the core of it. Very little fussing and instructing and making-perfect, but instead a lot of watching, listening, and just being there.
If your goal for photos is to get one or two photos of everyone posed together perfectly, not a collar or hair out of place, then I'm probably not your gal. But if you want to capture your beautiful, messy, REAL life right now, tears and grass stains and all, then I'd love to connect.
I'm Bill, videographer & owner of Hoben Media
I am Bill, I run a media production company based in South Minneapolis. I work in all sorts of industries and found a soft spot for family videos after my godson Osker was born. Osker’s mom, who is also a good friend, is a single mom and I wanted her to be able to see moments of him growing up. So, I started filming birthdays, meeting Santa, and other first milestones of growing up.
Life is a collection of fleeting moments, and before we know it, those moments become memories. While our minds may forget the specifics, video has the power to allow us to gaze back to those cherished times, evoking emotions and reminding us of the love and joy we've experienced.
I believe that every moment holds immense value and deserves to be cherished and remembered. My goal is to provide an experience that allows families to relive their family’s memories time and time again.

I had a fabulous photo shoot with Natalie. She was very easy and fun to work with during my 60 minute session for headshots and business photos for my website.

Natalie turns everyday moments into incredible headshots. She was very easy to work with and I was stunned by the end result of the photos.
Natalie delivered everything she promotes and promises--especially making someone not comfortable taking photos feel comfortable. The value is worth more than I spent. She was punctual delivered within the times promised. I am very satisfied with the results which I am blown away that she was able to achieve. The results are very professional yet fun and engaging, contemporary and confident yet friendly and approachable. She has an amazing eye and talent and ability to make the subject be comfortable and expose their true character. Thank you so much Natalie!

"Natalie was awesome."
Natalie captures people at their natural best -- which I think is rare, even among professional photographers.
My old headshots were three years old and it was time for new ones. Natalie was offering 20 minute slots for photoshoots at a conference I was attending, and I thought I'd give it a try. I had always booked longer sessions with other photographers, so I wasn't sure what could be done in 20 minutes.
Well...Natalie worked her magic and I got a full set of fantastic photos from her. I'm so impressed with what she got done in such a short period of time. She is absolutely fantastic and she got some wonderful shots.
"So impressed! Could not recommend Natalie more!"
