Dearest friends,

I am writing to you from the Pacific Northwest, from a cozy living room decorated with succulents and books and adorned with travel trinkets warmed in sunshine, hello! I've been journeying west for weeks, shooting bundles of film in the process.

These images were taken with my iphone. I wish I could share my film with you, but it's currently in storage; I am SO ANXIOUS to share my journey with you, soon.


Longing for a change of scenery, at the end of June I ventured westward; driving only U.S. roads from New York to Seattle, taking a few weeks, most often camping, swimming in lakes, hiking, and venturing through small towns, documenting my travels on film. There really is nothing like wind in the hair, and dusty roads and the kindness of strangers.


My experiences in Seattle have made me miss New Yorkers like you wouldn't believe. I'm grateful for familiar faces and warm hugs from long time pals that I grew up with, and consider family.

All in all, I've been adventuring, I've been journeying homeward, reconnecting with good friends and learning a great deal about myself and about people in the process.


I have more exploring and adventuring to do, so if you'd like, find me via Instagram, where I have been sharing tidbits of my whereabouts these last weeks. My username is “jenkorff”

A bit of fun news!

I've recently landed a children's book illustration gig with one of my favorite clients and I can't wait to share more about that with you in the coming months.

Also! I am TEACHING at SQUAM for their Fall Session this September! If you are interested in joining my class, registration is still open! I can't wait to be back east during my favorite month of the year, and am so anxious to connect with a handful of awe inspiring ladies.

AND last, but certainly not least, I am really thrilled to share the news that Sian Keegan's first craft book which I photographed (ON FILM!) for Sian last summer, ”How to Make Stuffed Animals: Modern, Simple Patterns and Instructions for 18 Projects” has an OFFICIAL release date of AUGUST 1! TOMORROW! I am so proud of the work we put into this book and had the best time working with Sian. Pick up a copy!
