    Greetings to all! A Little About Us Jenuine Creations, LLC began over 30 years ago. At that time, I was doing design, artwork, and custom teddy bears.

Recently, I have had the wonderful opportunity to "recreate" myself and my art. Jenuine Creations, LLC now includes one of my creative, capable, and ingenious daughters, Nicole. Between the two of us, we do photography, including (but not limited to) infants, children, senior portraits, weddings, events, commercial photography, and landscapes. We are members of Professional Photographers of America (PPA). We hold a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) title with PPA. We are members of Professional Photographers of West Michigan (PPWM), and have recently become members of the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce. We would love to have the opportunity to serve you. Contact us, and let's get started. Most sincerely, Jen and Nicole Visit us on our website today!

    I have been a photographer for 14 years. I have worked with a large amount of musicians in those years. I wanted to branch out so I am working with many venues. I work with a greenscreen and have many cool backgrounds (ex. Alice In Wonderland). I now shoot Family portraits, Weddings, Special Parties such as Grads and Sweet16. I have also worked with a custom jewelry maker. She has used my photos to promote her jewelry on Facebook. I want to branch out more, so if you have an idea for a photo, let me know. I have done a lot of work for many people through the years, and I would like to work with you. My prices are reasonable.

    I specialize in capturing great moments at all types of events, celebrations and festivities. My photos are interesting and high-quality - you don't have to settle for either/or! I also love taking portraits and headshots, as well as finding new ways to photograph groups and families of all sizes. My favorite photos are of people reacting authentically to their environment and situation -- tourists taking it all in, fevered dancing, kids playing, deep mourning, cultural festivities, friends out for a crazy night or anything ripe for experiencing our human condition and connection. I was born and raised in Michigan in the U.S. and have lived in Chicago, Colorado, Budapest, Madrid and several other places for 2- to 3-month stints. I love traveling and change, and I feel most inspired to create when my surroundings are new and unfamiliar to me. I went to school at North Park University and have since spent my career helping great people connect to other great people, products, services and art. I've done this through writing, photography, media relations, community management and performance.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chrystin Melanie Photography

(6 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love that I get to capture memories for people that will literally last forever. It's a bit surreal when I think about it. I feel very blessed that I get to be a small part of that process. There is also this great excitement for me as a photographer to have the opportunity to create beauty. Beauty is already all around us, but being able to capture a quick second smile, or an angle where the sun just hits right, makes an image that more memorable. Photography brings out the story that is already at play before our eyes. I love seeing the joy on my clients’ faces, when they see their story in photos. There's no other feeling like it.

What or who inspired you to start your business?

I started my photography business after many years of enjoying photography as a hobby. It was the birth of my son that ignited a passion and desire to take my photography to another level. Around the same time of my son's birth, I was going through some serious health issues. I found myself picking up my camera every day and capturing photos of my son. I suddenly realized the more I picked up my camera, the more I found healing. From there, the idea sprung that I wanted to pursue a business. It's been a wonderful roller coaster of a ride, but I wouldn't change a thing. I love my job and I love all the wonderful people I get to meet day in and day out. Really it's all just pure joy for me. Who knew running my own business could be so much fun?!
