I’m a bit excited. Wanna know why? Because I’m about to embark on a three-edition, 12 month advertising campaign for my beautiful, lovely, very special product called Your Family Story. In which magazine you ask? The gorgeous, luscious, heartfelt Little ONE Baby. I met the associate editor Amy in Bendigo a couple of months ago […]

2011 is drawing to a close and it’s time to look back on the year that was. I’ve had some outstanding highlights this year: the business was based in Canberra, Sydney and Berlin. The camera workshops went really well, I helped some businesses get further along in their marketing and I captured some amazing and […]

Beth, these photos are just beautiful. You are quite amazing. Lauren and Angus will treasure these so much when they’re older. Your family must be very proud of you too!

Beth Jennings - January 19, 2012 - 6:54 pm

oh thanks so much Jules! It’s an ongoing addiction – photographing these people!

Fiona - May 27, 2012 - 3:16 pm

Happy Tears, Inspirational and I’m jealous of your talent. That’s all I’ve got to say : )

Beth Jennings - May 29, 2012 - 11:57 am

Thank you SO much Fiona, that is such a lovely thing to say. Happy tears!? Wow, that’s really cool, thank you for making my day with such a lovely comment!

The story begins with a British chap called Stephen transferred to Sydney with work. Enter Teena, a fateful encounter at a work function, and the rest, as they say, is history. [youtube_sc url=”″ modestbranding=”1″ autohide=”1″] Teena and Stephen live in Sydney with their little man Noah. He was always going to be called Noah, […]

For a mum to see her first borne so incredibly loving and happy is just fabulous. These photographs have captured the essence of the family relationship and I feel so very proud to know that this little family is part of mine.

From a very proud grandma, mother and mother-in-law.

Best wishes
Gail xx

Beth Jennings - December 6, 2011 - 6:30 pm

Gail what an amazingly proud thing to say. Thank you so much for taking the time to put down your thoughts here. It’s so great that you’re so proud of your family and that this collection reflects all that you see in them. Bethxxx

As a family, David and Alissa always want family photos.  The trick for them is finding someone with a trained eye, that can see everyone there.  They have two lovely boys, Harry (Henry, actually, but known as Harry) and Archer, otherwise known as Arch or Archie.  Archie is just one month old.  This is a […]

Dear Beth

You have helped us to capture a series of memories for our family that are at once beautiful, fragile and unique. The glorious collection of our family, our Slice of Heaven, are a constant reminder of how lucky we are and the joy of living and love that binds us.

Thank you so very very much

Alissa, David, Harry and Archer

Beth Jennings - December 2, 2011 - 2:18 pm

Wow David what an amazing comment, thank you so so much. I loved creating this beautiful collection for you, and I love that you love it all so much!
You are so very very welcome.

When I met with Terry and Mia, and heard about their unique family, I thought, you bet, let’s go! They own Foxy’s Landscapes, and have been contributing their amazing design and landscaping skills to the Canberra region for years.  They’ve been so busy meeting other people’s needs that they were forgetting their own. They knew […]

Beth. Those pictures are stunning. What a beautiful family (and garden).

Beth Jennings - December 2, 2011 - 2:19 pm

:) Thank you Kathy for your thoughts you are so right, they are a stunning family and their world is really something to behold.

It’s really something, bringing a new baby into the world.  I mean, really, something. Katti and Björn have just had their second baby, Bent. He now accompanies his big brother Jan.  Katti and Björn are from northern Germany, (Bent is in fact a Danish name). I met them here in Hannover in 2007. When I […]

I am very happy to see this little family in such nice fotos.
I wish I could have such nice ones of my sons family! Which is lovely , too, of course.
Thank you, where ever you are!

Beth Jennings - September 6, 2011 - 8:27 am

Hello Marianne! Thank you so much for the lovely comment! Yes, I feel every family deserves to have this kind of photography, it’s a very unique way of photographing family, purely my own! Keep in touch, you never know I may just return one day to Hannover!

Brent and Fiona are from Australia and currently enjoying raising their sons Tom and Sam in Berlin. They live in a beautiful home which is temporary, just as their previous home was in Switzerland.  They feel that capturing the essence of their family in its present form is important because the boys are growing up […]

These are beautiful, Beth! I love the very first one, with the blown-out window but the greenery outdoors is reflected in the cabinet. I love looking for the little surprises in your pictures.

Beth Jennings - September 26, 2011 - 11:29 am

Thanks Trish for your comments and insights – I love the details that you always manage to spot :)

Welcome Emilia, to the world! The arrival of a newborn baby brings people together in a very special way.  Matthias’ parents came from Vienna and Clare’s flew all the way from Melbourne.  They had just three days together.  Clare and Matthias decided that capturing the moment was important to have for the future.   In our planning […]

Clare J - August 13, 2011 - 4:52 am

Wow, these photos are just gorgeous, I am a good friend of Clare’s – the images really capture the love between the families. I love the soft light too, and the pale colours. She is a bundle of sugar (the baby that is), can’t wait to meet her.

Anika - August 14, 2011 - 4:34 am

Really beautiful images…the moments you captured are so perfect to keep for a lifetime-a wonderful story. I love the honest moments you captured what seems very quietly, just lovely.

ELK - August 14, 2011 - 1:01 pm

i love clare’s blog ..and this stunning simple . yet intense series of photographs touched my heart really captured the essence of the day and the feeling of family .

Beth Jennings - August 19, 2011 - 9:26 pm

Thank you so much Elk for having a look here at Clare’s images, she keeps a beautiful blog herself too. I”m so pleased that you can feel the essence of the day in the images – hard to do but very rewarding when it happens!

Beth Jennings - August 19, 2011 - 9:27 pm

Very quietly indeed…yes it was softly softly. A delicate line to walk between being there and not being there. Thank you Anika for taking the time to share your thoughts :)

Beth Jennings - August 19, 2011 - 9:28 pm

A bundle of sugar indeed!! She is a lovely little girl and very lucky with such a great family around her. Thank you Clare for taking the time to write your thoughts I really loved to read what you had to say!!

What is Mr Barnaby’s Baby Babble? A fantastic, English speaking mums group started by Melanie, from the UK.  When Melanie first came to Berlin with a young child, she found it difficult to connect with fellow English-speaking  mums.  Two years and 405 meet ups later, the group is now the premier place to be in […]

How did you celebrate your third birthday party? Maybe you had a few friends over, maybe there was a cake, fairy bread, good food and friends.  If you were really lucky maybe mum and dad splashed out and hired a face-painter. Was it held in your backyard on a lovely summer’s day? Did your mum […]

Beth Jennings - July 9, 2011 - 9:08 pm

It was such a pleasure Vanessa, I loved every minute of it!! The best part is that Isabella gets to take away a precious memory or two from her very special day for her lifetime.

Heather - July 11, 2011 - 9:54 pm

Beautiful Beth, as always! Can’t wait for our next shoot!

Beth Jennings - July 12, 2011 - 9:34 pm

Thanks Heather that’s much appreciated and yes, always looking to capture the cherubs again xx

In the beginning, you don’t have much. It’s all about making plans and creating something together. My parents describe their early days when my sister was five and I had just been born. They moved us to the beautiful Blue Mountains to an old house that my Dad completely rebuilt over the next ten years. […]

Brilliant, it’s up! I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog due to a) moving around in London, Paris, back to London, now here in Berlin (to stay), b) caught a lurgy so that slowed me down c) navigating my way around German systems including the complicated customs office to collect my exhibition work d) […]
