About Me


HELLO! My name is Jennifer. I am a newborn photographer located in La Feria, Tx. I specialize in newborn photography as well as maternity, baby's first year milestones, and baby's first birthday. My dream is to continue to pursue newborn photography, and to one day be a mentor and teach newborn photography.


A little more about me

I am a mother to two handsome boys that are my entire world. Everything I do, I do it for them. I have an amazing, loving, and supportive husband that continues to support every crazy idea and dream that I have! We push and encourage each other to chase our dreams. Aside from my photography studio, we also own a jiu jitsu gym, Anomaly Jiu Jitsu. (which is my husband's dream).

I have the best, supportive family! (Thanks, mom, dad and brothers) They have always encouraged and lent a helping hand. Whether it be with prayer or helping build something, they've always been there!


Above all.. I give all the honor and glory to God because without Him none of this would be possible!

CASTILLO FAMILY CIRCA DECEMBER 2023

Humble Beginnings



My love for photography started at a very young age. I was always known to have a camera with me (disposable, Polaroids, etc)! I was even in the yearbook club in middle school and the historian in my dance team in high school.


In 2009, I started taking my photography to a different level, and began offering sessions of all types every now and then under the Jennifer Kristin Photography name. Once I had my oldest son in 2012 I started to really find what type of photography style I was truly wanting to do! Being a mother truly opened my eyes to how fast time flies and that your babies are only little for a short time.


In 2012/13, I began focusing more on where my heart was leading.. photographing children. (I suppose it was the new mother in me!) I began photographing in my home, in my living room using my windows as my lighting!






Later I moved to a room in the back of my home, and made that my own little home studio space after investing in studio lighting. I worked in my home from 2012 to December 2018. In January of 2019 I moved to a commercial location! In April of 2019 I ended up sharing the same suite with my husband's gym for 9 months. It sounds weird, but somehow we made it work, and everyone was so supportive! In late January 2020, I moved to the suite next door to my first location! I am now in suite A and my husband's jiu jitsu gym is in suite B! It is the best feeling ever to be able to do this side by side with him. My studio is constantly a work in progress, but I am still in awe that I finally have a space of my own!

I am so blessed to still be working in the town that I live in, close to home, and next door to my husband! It is everything I have prayed for and more (LITERALLY!) And this is just the beginning!

My FIRST commercial space! When I had to share the space with my husband's gym! We had a border on wheels dividing us. When it was my time I'd move the border out like this. When it was his gym time I'd roll the border closer and close off my area. WILD, I know!

My SECOND and current commercial studio space!


COMING SOON!
