a day in the life | caroline jensen

There’s no doubt that our CMpros are busy.  They have families to care for, jobs to maintain, many have businesses to look after, and they all know how to take stunning photographs.  Have you ever wondered what a day looks like for one of the CMpros?  How do they manage their time?  When do they get it all done?  You loved Sara’s ‘A Day In The Life’ post so much that we decided to make it a regular new series for you in which a couple CMpros per month will photograph their day and share it with you.  This month, Caroline Jensen is sharing a day in her life in her own beautiful way.

I have to admit that our lives aren’t that interesting anymore. After moving for the military 17 times since 2002 we kind of like boring now. We spend most of the time on our farm where we homeschool, garden and play.

Here is a typical day for the Jensen house! The only thing missing is about three dozen images of me shooting pictures and camping out at the computer catching up at Clickin Moms.

Minnesota wife and homeschooling mother of four, Caroline explains her photography which began in 2008 with her first DSLR as “ever evolving, but I have a special love for emotive black and white imagery as well as colorful landscapes and macros that are alive with colors and textures. My newest love is film and alternative process photography.” Her gear consists of a Canon 5d mark II, an assortment of prime lenses including a lensbaby and attachments, a Canon Rebel Film camera, and some Holgas. Caroline is the instructor of CMU’s workshops Shooting 301: The Art of Observation, Processing 202: Communicating with Color and Light, and Shooting 107: The Art of Mobile Photography. Photography may be Caroline’s passion but she is also a beekeeper, gardner, addicted to salsa and lime, dark chocolate, and loves traveling in her Airstream with her family.

    Peeking into your family was hands down, awesome! I, especially, felt a connection with the photo of your daughter hugging y’all’s pup and his/her eyes are near closed, like it is embracing the moment. Sweetness!!
