Professional Photographer

Hey!! I'm so excited to meet you! Thanks for stopping by. Let me fill you in on a little more about me!


I'm Michelle Jenniges, owner and photographer of Whippoorwill Photography located in Atwater, MN. I graduated from the Ridgewater College Professional Photography program in 2011. That same year I opened my own business in the basement of my parents house. Now in 2018 I have a home office where I live with my husband, stepdaughter and a dog. I meet with my clients before and after their session to talk about planning and to view and order their portraits. I have small space where I can do minor indoor portraits but I love on-location portraiture. 


In October of 2014 I married my best friend and boyfriend of 6 years, Jeff, in the barn on my grandma's farm where we live. I gained a bonus-daughter, Hailey, who has been a great model over the last 10 years, maybe some more willingly than others. Cooper joined our family in 2015, he's the cutest yellow lab I know, just don't say the word b-a-l-l.
