• What Is Jenna Bishop Photography?

    Welcome to Jenna Bishop Photography! I’m a natural-light, lifestyle and wedding photographer based in the gorgeous desert of Gilbert, Arizona, and specialize in high school seniors, children, and families. I strive to give my clients not only beautiful, timeless, creative photos, but a completely involved, completely devoted client experience. I'm all about celebrating life now, and what better way celebrate your now than through photos that capture your unique relationships and personality!

I’ve been doing lifestyle portrait photography for over eight years now, and I LOVE it, every minute of it. I love the photography side, being creative and stretching the limits of what light and color can do. I also love the business side, I love meeting new amazing people, getting beautiful photos that they can love and enjoy, and offering an all-encompassing professional photography experience from the first email to the last review. BUT I also love taking on new challenges, and have been wanting to expand on the photography experience for my clients, not just offering them the same type of photos they can get anywhere, but offering them a photography experience and a true lifestyle photography option. So with that, I am super excited to introduce a whole new photography experience from Jenna Bishop Photography – August in Photos.

What if your family photography could be an experience instead of a destination? Could capture real life instead of a structured highlight reel? What if your family photos could take on a whole new dimension and design? Welcome August in Photos. A new concept and photo shoot offered by Jenna Bishop Photography. An experience and activity shot from the perspective of a fly on the wall. No stress, no hassle, you don’t even have to smile.  Just be yourself, and live life with the ones you love. Instead of pulling out your camera phone and missing being present in the moment, I’ll be your camera phone. I’ll capture those little moments in every day life that mean so much. Edited in a classic film, emotional style, these photos will redefine what it means to do family photos. It will become an experience to look forward to instead of a stressful box to check off. Take a look today and see if August in Photos is something you’d love for your family. A new concept and new design to the traditional family photo shoot. Organic. Natural. Real life. In photos.

There will always be a place for the traditional family photo shoot, and I’ll absolutely continue doing those shoots, but I’m very excited to offer this new option that really captures life as it’s lived. You chose the experience, the activity, the destination, and I’ll be there along the way.

Megan has the sweetest personality, laughing and smiling and going with the flow from the minute we started. And we had a ton of fun getting her senior photos around downtown. What I love most about Megan is her super sincere laugh, especially since it was a bit crazy windy at our session, she totally embraced it! And come on, check out that adorable hat, it she totally works it! Good luck next year, Megan!! Always fun to see your family! 🙂

I’m a big fan of random musical instruments in nature, so Meghan playing her cello in the middle of a field was pretty much the highlight of the week. In fact, she started to draw a crowd as we were taking photos. I guess that’s what years and years of being absolutely amazing at the cello will get you. Not to mention she was adorable every step of the way during her senior photos. AND kudos to dad for lugging her cello all around town the whole two hour session. I think he deserves all the appreciation here 🙂 Good luck next year, Meghan. You are going to be AMAZING!!

Not only does Phoenix have the coolest name ever, but she was fabulous in her senior photos! Such a sweet personality, so positive, and so fun to be around.- totally evident in her mini senior shoot. Plus, she has big plans to study veterinary science at my alma matter (UofA!), which makes her even that much cooler. And she’s an amazing violinist – such an accomplished young woman! Good luck next year, Phoenix!

It is that time of year, time for all our high school graduates to head out into the great unknown! Spring is senior photo shoot season, and those beautiful senior photos are just itching to be displayed in all their glory. And what better way to show off your uh-maz-ing senior photos than with super creative, gorgeous grad announcements? I am often asked where soon-to-be grads can design and order unique graduation announcements without the high price tag of having them personally custom designed. The tough thing is that there are almost an overwhelming number of options out there for senior graduation announcements, but one company that has caught my eye lately is Basic Invite. They have several unique features that really help them stand out above the competition when it comes to their graduation invitations.

What sets Basic Invite apart? Well, first, they are one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options, so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. So your school board was trippin’ when they picked your school colors and you need something in fuchsia and deep periwinkle? Basic Invite has you covered. One of their biggest selling points, their color combinations are almost endless.

To top off the color customization, they have over 40 different envelope colors so grads they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. No licking envelopes. Sounds like my kind of fancy.

Another unique feature of Basic Invites is that they offer customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. I would have loved this feature when ordering holiday cards in the past. I’m always worried instead of thick, classy card stock, I’m going to get some flimsy photo paper (I’m looking at you big box warehouse store!). But since Basic Invite gives you the option of seeing an actual printed invitation, you know exactly what you’re getting, and can make changes if needed.  And did I mention that Basic Invites has cards for almost every occasion?

Plus, and this is super awesome, they have an address collection service. You just send out your link to everyone you want to send a card to, and they put in their address, and your envelopes are printed for free. No long email chains trying to keep track of everyone’s information, or having to call great Aunt Sally and talk about her begonias for 20 minutes just so you can send her a graduation invite.

Basic Invite offers some tips when creating your senior graduation announcements:

  • Customize your announcements using your school colors
  • Choose a gold or silver foil design to make your invitation or announcements shine
  • If you are creating an announcement make sure to include where you are graduating from, the year, your name, and any plans for the future if you would like
  • If you are creating an invitation be sure to include all the ceremony information like who, what, where, when
  • Don’t forget to include your graduation year
  • Add extra flare and include an inspirational quote or your school mascot logo

You can check out Basic Invite at their website, or connect with them on social media: FacebookPinterestInstagramTwitter. But most importantly, put those senior photos to good use, whether it’s graduation announcements, grad party invites, or asking your mom to take down the family photo above the fireplace and replace it with one of your (super close up) fabulous senior photos. Because what else would your mom want to stare at every day but your beautiful mug? We all know who’s the most important and deserves all the glory, you, amiright?! Congrats, grads!!!
