Hi, I’m Jen, the photographer behind Jen Bilodeau Photography. I am a lifestyle & documentary photographer based out of Massachusetts. I am also a CPA and enjoy mentoring fellow photographers to help them take their business to the next level. My Nikon D750 and Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART are my near-constant companions. I am lover of light and shadows and all they illuminate and define.

You can take this theme literally – like a child singing high on a swing, or a father lovingly tossing his smiling little boy up in the air, but feel free to get creative. Show me what it feels like to be lighter than air – what lifts you up, gives you strength and rejuvenates you.
Up in the mountains is where I am most at peace. It doesn’t matter if I’m hiking, skiing or simply driving around. This image was taken at the top of an early morning hike with my son. On this particular morning it was a spectacularly clear winter day the White Mountains. As I climbed higher towards the top, the thoughts in my mind fell into a gentle rhythm with my steps, my stress vanished and I felt rejuvenated and free. It was a special time with my son that I will never forget. From the top of that mountain, I truly felt lighter than air.
