a little about me


I was born in Michigan but grew up on the beautiful beaches of the sunshine state, aka, Florida. I moved back to Michigan in 2009 and lived there for 6 years before moving again and finally (hopefully) settling down in Fort Worth, TX.


I’ve lived in 5 different states in my short life… Florida, Arizona, South Carolina, Michigan, and finally Texas.

All because I met my amazing husband while attending school for Nuclear Medicine and a few years into our relationship he decided to go to medical school.


The hubby and I been together for more than 14 years, married for 6, and have 4 children – Alyssa, Aubrey, Alivia, and Aidan – a corgi and a cat.


We have a family of 6 and I also grew up in a family of 6. I have 2 sisters and a brother – of which I am the oldest – and they both still live in Florida.


I’m a huge procrastinator, slight perfectionist, spur-of-the-moment decision maker, and outgoing-introvert. I also love being outdoors and you can catch me at the beach just about any day it is sunny and warm out.


I feel like I’ve been in school all my life… and I have three degrees to prove it!

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?

Style & Beauty

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.

Check out these posts for an extensive list of camera equipment, books to read, and anything else photography related.


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.
