Jennifer Yu

Jennifer Yu is a freelance nature, food, and portrait photographer based in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado - but she didn't start out that way.  Debating a swtich in career paths at the end of 2007, a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatments throughout 2008 nudged her to make the leap to photography and freelance work.  In her spare time, Jennifer maintains her food blog use real butter. She hikes, mountain bikes, mountaineers, and telemark skis - she logged 28 ski days during chemotherapy in 2008.  Jennifer firmly believes in living life to the fullest.  A former NASA engineer, Jennifer holds a Ph.D. in geology from Cornell University and a B.S. in engineering from the California Institute of Technology.
