Jen CK Jacobs

After serving as a sailor in the U.S. Navy for seven years, Jen CK Jacobs studied design and art history at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and worked for nearly 10 years as an editorial photographer. Her photography and styling work has been exhibited throughout North America and is held in private collections across the globe; her clients included Chronicle Books, Roost Books, Martha Stewart Living, Delta Airlines, Food & Wine, Food Network, and Kinfolk magazine, among others.

An avid traveler who regularly takes to both the dusty backroads of American highways and the serpentine side roads of Europe, her fifth book, Road Trips, about the wanderlust of taking to the road is available now. Jen lives just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, with her husband and six children. Connect with her at
