Meet The Alchemist


Hi. I’m Jenn Co-McMillen and I see the world through rose-coloured glasses.

I am a Vancouver full-service portrait photographer, committed to savouring every bit of this amazing journey. I am an ordinary girl, out to create an extraordinary life.


A few years ago, my life was blessed with a daughter. I have been head-over-heels in love with this tiny human ever since. She is perfect. She is amazing. She reminds me constantly of the magic of childhood… and that as full of stardust as it is, this season in our lives is very short and temporary. My mother’s heart could stare at her face forever, my arms could hold her for as long as I live… I don’t want to miss a thing. I’m grateful for being able to immortalize these fleeting moments in photographs. I want to do the same for you.

Maddi’s arrival has enriched my life in very profound ways. It has not been easy; at times, it has been astonishingly hard… yet I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Motherhood is precious. It has also been an incredible personal development journey for me. It’s nudged me to take back my personal power and to break free from the very limiting box I found myself in. It’s called me to keep striving to be the best version of me I can possibly be. Maddi has been my inspiration and personal teacher as I set out to create the freedom, love, joy, power and magic that I so crave in my life. I am finding my true self again. I want this for you too.


My work is about empowerment, to remind you of how incredibly powerful and beautiful you are.


It is also about encouragement, to help you see the silver lining in the dark clouds… that in the midst of what can be incredibly challenging days, you are blessed beyond imagination.


It is about friendship, parents need a community to thrive in the quest of raising a family… I dream of building a modern day village.


And it is about celebration, to celebrate all that matters most to you.
