we love what we do

As parents ourselves, we understand how quickly children grow up and we believe that every day is a gift. As a portrait artist, my passion is to help families record their histories through  personal original works of art.
I've heard from so many busy parents who are saddened that they never got around to printing the pictures that they do have. They worry about whether or not all of their photos are backed up in case something happens to their phones or computers.
When you commission JL, we take care of every singe detail for you. Whether it's a painted oil portrait of your six grandchildren, an Italian canvas of your immediate family, or an album covered in luxurious Japanese Silk, we won't be satisfied until you are delighted. -- Jenn

About Jennifer Lindberg

Jenn abandoned her studies at Cambridge University to dedicate herself to shooting hard-hitting photojournalism. Her work has been published in the New York Times, US News & World Report, Marie Claire and many others. She won a "Picture of the Year" award from the National Press Photographers Association for her portrait of an orphan in Mozambique who had lost his parents to AIDS. Jenn started photographing weddings & portraits as an antidote to the daily suffering she witnessed as a photojournalist. Being surrounded by beauty and connection made a welcome change from the gritty realism of her work, and in 2001 she made weddings a full-time career. In 2012, Jenn became a mom through adoption, growing her family with a beautiful son and daughter from China. Becoming a mother changed her, shifting her creative focus to families. Today Jenn passionately documents relationships and records family histories. Her family portraits--including the posed ones--are characterized by a relaxed authenticity. She lives with her husband and partner, Jim, in their Victorian home in Lockhart, Texas, with their two children. They love visits with Jenn's wonderful stepdaughter who is doing her medical residency in San Antonio. Jenn and Jim recently purchased and restored a historic building on the town square that is now a Premier Destination Studio & Gallery. Slowly but surely their lives are looking less and less like an HGTV show!


About Jim Pitts

With a background in engineering and management consultancy, perhaps Jim is an unlikely photographer. But truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction. Jim studied photography in college and when he met Jenn in 2006, he started assisting her on weekends to spend more time together. When they got married in 2008, Jim gave up corporate life and devoted himself to photography full time. He loves capturing those small moments that unfold quickly and he has become a lighting expert, both for outdoor and Studio Portraits. Jim grew up on a family farm in Iowa and also spent a couple of years in Japan, so he's a pretty Zen guy, low key and patient. When he's not taking photographs, he turns his creativity to woodworking and meticulously restoring the Victorian home he shares with Jenn. He has also been involved in remodeling their historic Studio on Lockhart's Main Square, hand scraping the long leaf pine floors that were discovered upstairs. Jim is proud to have a daughter who is completing her Medical Residency while also serving in the U.S. military, and dotes on a couple of adorable kids he adopted with Jenn.

Jenn & Jim took our wedding photos, our daughter’s 1st year portraits and most recently,, our Christmas Cards. The beautiful framed portrait hangs over our mantle, and is something our guests admire and unfailingly ask about. We plan to have family portraits  annually and display the gorgeously bound albums in our home like the works of art that they are, as a visual reminder of our family's constant, ever-evolving love.

 ROBIN AND JEFF HAN

These are the sweetest images I've ever laid my eyes on! There are so many amazing portraits and moments. You are a magician, I swear!! 
Thank you so so much. We will treasure these for years and years.

Trina and Taylor Bentley

" Jenn, this is perfect and exactly what we wanted. We love the pictures!"

Leslee and matt holliday

They are beyond beautiful. I am not sure even where to begin!
Such amazing work. 


Megan Dailey

The first time Jenn took photos of our daughter, she was 5 months old. Our son was literally minutes old as she met us at the hospital at 4am. The kids are totally themselves with her. I love that.


Ann Patton

"The images are a testament to how comfortable my family is around you both. They are just perfect."

Julie McGinnis

When I saw the portraits, I lost my breath. The 42 years that have passed seemed to stand still. The pictures you took are so “us” that I will forever be able to see and feel Ray’s love and be able to conjure up all the millions of small moments that have made our life together so meaningful. I did not realize just how important these pictures would be for me. We are appreciative to have had our portraits taken by the best.
