I'm so happy that you found my page and are interested in learning more about Jeanette Merstrand Photography, and how I can serve you! Being on this page is the first step towards truly investing in your memories and giving them a place to live forever. That is what pictures do - allow your memories and legacy to live on forever. Other than taking pictures, I love my husband, cats, being outside, and much more. If you want to learn more about me, you can do that here!
what you can expect –
I believe that the best pictures come out of photographer-client relationships that feel authentic and comfortable instead of stiff, awkward, and impersonal. This is why I find it so important that we get to know each other even before our session! Whether you are looking to book a family session, an individual portrait session, or a couple's or engagement session, please send me a message with a little more information about you and your wishes. I can't wait to hear from you!
Once your date is reserved, we'll connect to start chatting about possible locations for your session. I generally recommend choosing one location and if it's a place you haven't been before, it might be helpful to visit during the time our session will take place. That way you have an idea of the light, crowds, closing time, etc! If you're not sure about where you would like to take your photos but you have a general idea of the look you would like, just let me know because I would be happy to recommend a few locations based on your aesthetic! If you want to read a little more about location options, you can READ MORE HERE!
I put together an outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family. You will receive a PDF after booking with more information.
Generally I suggest neutral colors, and if you like color or patterns, ,then I suggest light, pastel colors, and patterns that are not too small (the camera has a hard time picking these up), or bold.
It's time to take pictures! Don't worry about feeling awkward or inexperienced, I will help you through the entire process, and all you have to do is focus on having fun and enjoying yourself, laughing a lot, and I will do the rest!
Even my most shy and nervous clients have warmed up to the camera quickly and walked away at the end of their session feeling confident and great!
1-2 days after our session, I will share a sneak peek on my social media pages! About 3 weeks after our session, you will get an e-mail with a link to your full gallery of 25+ images in full resolution.
Your images will be available to view and download as many times as you want for a month after receiving your gallery and download link!
Enjoy having these memories to look back on for a lifetime! If you want to give your memories a home, I offer keepsake and legacy albums! I truly believe that every session deserves a home!
Printing your images brings life to them and keeps the memories alive. Invest in your memories by ordering an album!

THE BELLY TO BABY MEMBERSHIP
MATERNITY & NEWBORN
Right after having a baby is a bit of a blur but Jeanette was super relaxed and easy to work with . . . and captured the most beautiful moments . . . She was flexible and talented and what struck me the most is she treated the session the way she would have wanted it if it was her own. She was very generous with her time and talent!
dima & marcus
We love, love, love [our pictures] - you can tell, Jeanette loves what she is doing and is passionate to deliver great results. We will definitely book her again and are happy to recommend her to our friends!
mia & Agustin
Jeanette is a great photographer! And this is kind of obvious: you only need to take a look at some of her gorgeous shots to see how beautifully she uses natural light, how carefully she chooses her locations and how skillfully she brings the best out of her models.
Jeanette was so great in making my family feel so comfortable during the photo shoot! . . . I definitely recommend Jeanette and will be booking with her again!

I've never felt as comfortable in front of a camera, as I did at my session with Jeanette! She is so professional, but still laid back and she really understands how to use the light in the most beautiful way to create stunning results!
There is something so beautiful and intimate about capturing images in your own home! Most newborn sessions take place in my client's homes, for example, but any kind of session can be scheduled to take place in your own home! Neutral colored walls and big windows always make for beautiful light and images!
The beach is one of my absolute favorite locations for taking pictures! The white sand and the blue waves are the perfect surroundings for a free-spirited, romantic and fun session - whether it is a family session, an anniversary session or even a portrait session!
Another beautiful location to consider is outside in a field or small wooded area! In the middle of a big forest is not ideal, as it tends to be very dark in these areas, but open fields, or smaller wooden areas with lots of light are perfect and make for beautiful images!
If the city fits your aesthetic better, then taking your images in the city is also an option! There are so many beautiful historical buildings in Denmark and Germany - and europewide - that provide gorgeous backgrounds for images! If you are wanting your pictures taken in a very popular area, I suggest a sunrise session to avoid the rush-hour crowd!
what should I wear?
what to wear
I suggest light, neutral colors which will help capture the light romantic images that you are dreaming of! When picking outfits I recommend keeping in mind the word “complement” rather than “match.” For example, if he is wearing a white shirt, and black pants, she may want to choose a long, soft beige dress. It can also be a great idea to choose “color-families,” such as pastels or neutral tones.
for the littles
Again, I suggest light, neutral colors which will help capture the light romantic images that you are dreaming of! A few blankets in neutral colors, headbands with bows, or flowers are a few sweet accessories to consider including in your session.
When you book me, I will send you a PDF guide with more inspiration to help you pick your outfits!
