Portrait photographer Jena Ardell

I am a photographer currently based in the greater NYC area where I shoot music, portraits, and lifestyle fashion.

When I'm not shooting, I am thrifting, relearning French, and attempting to grow tropical plants indoors.

Past clients include Nickelodeon, Nokia, Barkbox, HarperCollins, and The Lantern Festival.
