Hello I'm Jennifer
I am SitHappy Productions

I am a mama of one cute ginger boy Blake.
An ex-athlete, though I still play a pickup game of flag football when I can.
A bit loud and I love to laugh, which many people tell me is infectious. 
I was born and raised in San Jose and love capturing the vast diversity of the south bay. 
I feel honored to capture your special moments with you. I like to keep things simple.
If you like what you see in my portfolio, you're going to love your photos. I believe every picture I take and give you should be frame-worthy and I feel it's my job to help you in every step of the process for you to treasure your timeless images of those that mean the most to you. I look forward to capturing your wonderful memories!

My favorite photos

My son (7 months) and my first niece (6 months) for some quick park photos as the sun was almost gone. A little editing to remove some extra support to keep Blake upright and pure cuteness. 

I take a yearly picture of Blake on this rock in the middle of the creek up at my parent's property, far off the beaten path. The first year is a large thin wrap on my bedroom wall. This year I wanted to do something extra and created a media merge of photo and video - the audio really makes it. 

I love being the photographer at a wedding more than anything. This bride and I have been friends since high school and won't let anything get in the way. I was thrilled with all the photos of the day, but not missing the emotion between these tight knit girls was essential.

Why hire me?

Friends and customers who have hired me describe me as kind, patient, fun and most of all someone who genuinely cares about my clients. 

Let's capture it, preserve it, and enjoy them everyday.

It wasn't until I had my son Blake and was moving into my home that I realized how hard it was to pick images and decide on how to display them on the walls. I was a photographer. I had many amazing images of my son, friends and family. And I was still overwhelmed and continued to push off the task of decorating my home with my art.

I want to help you with this task, while capturing timeless images of those you love and cherish. You can never have too many photos, especially with how quickly our little ones grow.

My formal training is in video production from Chapman University and Santa Clara University.

I went back to my roots of photography in 2006 and have since been apart of capturing over 80 weddings, many adorable newborns, and a heartwarming amount of families.
