November 2016 - photo by Jennifer Crowder


I was born and raised here in San Antonio. I spent my childhood summers on horses, mopeds, and waterskis west of town, near Medina Lake.

I've been a student of photography since 1995 when I shot and developed my own film and prints. I've loved reading and writing since elementary school. (Long live the Oxford comma.) 

Most of my time is spent with my family which is made up of my husband, my 15 year old son, Julian, and my two year old daughter, Helena aka Mouse. We've got two dogs: Bob, a mini weenie and Reggie, a Labrador. I spend my solo time exercising, gardening, reading, and photographing flowers. (You can keep up with some of that work on my Instagram feed.)

I'm crazy about comedy (British comedy, especially), foreign and indie flicks, dark humor, swimming pools on hot days, iced tea, good books, candor, chocolate, and plants. Not so crazy about elevators, trips to dentist, traffic jams, or itchy tags in my clothes.  

Thanks so much for visiting me here!
