Welcome to J. Bak Studios, owned and operated by Jennifer Bak.
Life is a series of moments, strung together by the passage of time. And when those moments are happening, they're so vivid and immediate that you think you'll have no problem remembering them crystal-clear for the rest of your life. But how often do we later try to think back on the key moments in our lives and we realize we can't remember what the look in someone's eyes was or the intensity of the emotion? How often do we not even realize we forgot until we look at a photo from that day, then the memories come flooding back into our minds and we almost feel like we're there, experiencing the moment again?
That's the power of photography. It's not simply snapshots, it's seeing that emotional core of the moment and capturing it for you forever. It's transporting you back to that moment -- making that memory solid and tangible.
But when we try to take those photos ourselves, we often miss actually experiencing the moment we want to remember. Having a photographer there will allow you to be in the moment with your family and loved ones, and let you be remembered in the photos, too. Plus, having a professional photographer ensures that you have flattering photos of yourself, instead of the awful Facebook snapshot we all dread -- where we're shiny, making a weird face, and posed awkwardly. A professional photographer will make sure that the photos of you represent the best you, showing you in your best light.
So, whether you want a photographer present to capture at a life event or you want portraiture to capture a moment in time, I hope you will consider me. I would be honored to help you preserve your memories.
J. Bak Studios, LLC
J. Bak Studios is formerly Spiked Punch Studios.
I am primarily an on-location photographer with a fully portable studio and backdrops. Your session can either be done at a location such as a park or venue or, for your convenience, I can come to your home, which takes the hassle out of trying to get the entire family to a studio. Also, this makes it easy to include family pets or mementos in your portraits.
I offer a wide variety of photographic services including portraiture*, weddings, special events, dance and theater performances, and editorial photography.
*Portraiture includes families, maternity, newborn, costume/character shoots, fashion, engagements, budoir, pin-up, post-wedding wedding fashion fun photo shoots, and more!
