    REAL Talk Episode 44: Jenn Lewis

    REAL Talk Episode 44: Jenn Lewis

    Jenn is an award-winning portrait photographer based in Clemmons, North Carolina who concentrates on seniors and headshots. She began her photography business 11 years ago as a “mom with a camera”. With a determined work ethic and tenacious personality, she grew her part-time business from her living room to her full-time 1600 square foot studio while multiplying her sales average by 10. She is an army of one, but her ADHD helps her to multitask like a BOSS.


    Jenn loves this relationship-based business. She lives to attend conferences where she has learned great business practices like combining good sales techniques and a great experience all while taking killer photos. But the networking (which usually takes place at the bar) might just be her favorite part. :)


    Jenn is easily recognized by her crazy curly hair, which has been rumored to give her superpowers in her sales room. She enjoys road trips, long walks on the beach, and pink Starbursts.

Mrs. Gambino ,

Absolutely love REAL TALK!

Our industry is fascinating and to have an elevated platform such as REAL TALK to come together, and have a serious talk about what we do is phenomenal. Senior Style Guide definitely delivers on sharing information and being resourceful. Thank you for having these REAL TALK episodes with industry professionals to share knowledge and passion for the art of photography. Sean is a great host!

The best Podcast for Senior Photography

The Real Talk Podcast is just that . . . . Real Talk. Real topics that will help photographers with their struggles, celebrate successes, and give insight to an industry that is beautiful and complex. Sean does a great job of getting to the point while making it very conversational and feel like you are sitting with two friends. Thank You Sean & Senior Style Guide for always being on the cutting edge and the front runner in this industry.

Ron Gray ,

This should be a required listen for photographers!

I REALLY enjoy listening to this podcast! Formatted as an interview of industry photographers or service providers, Sean does a great job of never making it feel stuffy or clinical, but more like you’re listening to a conversation between two friends just exchanging stories about their journeys. It’s a wonderful mix of learning about their personal life, the challenges and successes they’ve experienced, and how those experiences have influenced their business over the years. It’s refreshing to hear that the photographers many of us follow and look up to have lived through the same struggles and made the same mistakes. While you’ll likely pick up a tip or two from each episode you can apply to your business, I get much more from comparing how differently everyone operates. This drives home how important it is to realize there is no one right way to do something, and you just need to find success in what works best for you. Well done!
