#meettheartist Jen Lial

On Sunday, November 21st, we visited the studio of Jen Lial

825 Main St, Warren

Jen describes her images as “truthful and kind” and that her focus is “on the relationships that unfold before my lens.”

Her portraits reflect this philosophy whether they are part of the series she made of her daughters during Covid lockdown or close ups from a magical outdoor wedding.
