In 2010, Stephanie Jensen graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a degree in Paralegal Studies. Her inquisitive nature and keen attention to detail allowed her to dedicate her legal career to helping people navigate hardship and injustice. A few years into the field, however, she realized she had an even bigger purpose to fulfill.
In search of adventure and a fresh perspective, Stephanie moved to Malaysia in 2013 and spent a year teaching English and backpacking throughout South East Asia. Her eagerness to understand and connect with people of different cultures, coupled with her desire to embrace beautiful landscapes, led Stephanie to uncover her natural talents for travel and photography.
After returning to her hometown, Stephanie completed a certificate program at the Chicago Photography Academy in 2016. Combining her legal and creative skills, Stephanie's mission is to use her photography as a tool to educate, elevate unheard voices, and uplift those that exist in marginalized communities. Stephanie has a passion for documentary, street and lifestyle portrait photography.
