About Jeanette Schenk 

I'm just a big kid with a camera - a photographer that likes to play and get clients to laugh and have fun during their photo shoot. I make it a priority to get to know the person on the other side of the lens.

"Just a note of thanks for taking Emalee's senior photos in L.O. She had a wonderful day with you. I'm so pleased and in love with all of them. You are a ten star in our eyes!" ~ Janet W, Lake Oswego, OR

Wendy K., Beaverton, OR ~ "I am thrilled with the outcome and I do tell my friends, trust me!"

"Jeanette is the BEST photographer in this area." ~ Steve I., PDX

Joe H., after taking his senior portraits, Tigard, Oregon ~ "That was actually REALLY fun!" 

"Jeanette is amazing! She shot our engagement photos down in wine country. She is very outgoing, prepared and makes the photo shoot fun and comfortable. She even had signs prepared for our dog to wear that said cute phrases such as 'they said yes'. The photos turned out beautifully. She was able to catch our fun and romantic sides in the photos. We will definitely use Jeanette and Shortcake Photography again!!" ~ Alexe C., Portland, OR

Subeer S., Portland, Oregon ~ "My wife and I recently worked with Jeanette from Shortcake Photo for a newborn session with our 10 day old son. Our entire experience with Jeanette was great! She responded promptly to all communication, explained her process and fees clearly, and was flexible with our schedule. The photo session itself was also managed very well. She came over to our house so we were able to be in comfortable surroundings. Jeanette is also very understanding of a newborn's schedule and quirks and never tied us down to a time block for the session. The whole session took about two hours and included multiple mood swings from our baby. She even helped us brainstorm ideas on the fly and the results were amazing! We now have beautiful memories of those first few days after birth."
