Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use your photos?
As for images on their own, if you’d like to use one in a roundup or similar context, I usually don’t mind, as long as the image is clearly credited, something along the lines of, “Photo courtesy of Jennifer Meyering,” with a link back to the original post, and uploaded to your own server (see: hotlinking). If you are unsure about whether or not what your are doing is okay, please ask first (and thanks in advance for making the effort to do so).
What is your skincare routine?
This is a tricky one because I’m JUST now getting into skincare and I feel like my routine is constantly switching as I learn more. Quite frankly, I feel like I’m still trying to figure out what works best for me! I also have hormonal acne and I’m still trying out how to best manage it and keep the breakouts at bay. Currently, I don’t really do much (but want to do more!) except wash, exfoliate, use an eye cream, serum, and moisturize daily. You can find all my current beauty favorites here.
What kind of camera and equipment do you use?
From 2010 until Christmas 2014, I took photos with an old Cannon DSLR that was a hand-me-down from my dad. For Christmas 2014, my parents bought me a new Canon T5i and shortly thereafter I upgraded the stock lens to a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens that I use for all my photography now. I have my eye on a sweet macro lens that I’m hoping to get in the very near future!
I try to use natural light whenever possible (our overabundance of windows are amazing for this), but in the wintertime I’m usually stuck to only photography food in the early morning. Hopefully, I can find a reliable nighttime setup and I’ll be sure to share when I do.
Photography is a never-ending learning process and I’ve definitely evolved over time, though I’m not close to where I would like to be.

Can I republish your recipes?
Thanks for asking! All of the recipes on Jennifer Meyering are copyrighted. Please do not repost my recipes verbatim without permission. If you tried a recipe yourself, I love that you want to share one of my recipes! Feel free to use the ingredients list, but write the instructions in your own words and include an obvious link back to my original recipe post. I’d also prefer if you used your own photo along with it (why not show them what you made, rather than what I made?).
Can I write a guest post for your blog?
At this time I am not accepting any guest posts. Be sure to check back in the future to see if I decided to open the guest posting again.
Do you have any tips/recommendations for a newbie blogger like myself?
This is such a difficult question to answer but the important thing to remember is to be yourself and to be authentic. Blog because you love it and because you are passionate about it! For more of my favorite tips and blogging resources, visit this page.
