Jenny Caspers, The Creative Behind “A Clean Prism Life”

My name is Jenny Caspers and I live in a suburb of the Twin Cities in Minnesota. I left my office job to become a stay at home mom when I had my daughter. Nearly two years later, I decided I wanted to do something creative, hopefully for a living. That’s when I created my Instagram page @acleanprismlifeOpens in a new window and started taking photos of my home.

I had never used a camera before, but I found myself loving the process of styling something, photographing it, editing it to my standards and ultimately putting it out to the world. It was so rewarding! I came up with the name “A Clean Prism Life” based on my love of keeping things clean and fresh, and reflecting that like a prism in all aspects of my life and outwards for others.

Little by little, my confidence grew. I participated in “decor hashtag games” where photos “win contests” on Instagram and are featured. Pretty soon my photos were being noticed by businesses, like Ashley Home Store, whose decor items I featured in my photos. What an honor!

Through this experience, I have met an overwhelming amount of incredible people in the decor community and it has changed my life dramatically to be a part of such an amazing network. It has inspired me to keep growing and coming up with new ideas.

My website acleanprismlife.comOpens in a new windowis where I feature a portfolio of my work and offer services like Interior Decorating, Product Photography & Product Promotion, and Photo Editing. I have become much more involved on Instagram and am a Program Director for Decor Newbies Unite, a four week Instagram training course my friend Kelly @homewithkellyOpens in a new windowand I created that teaches people how to organically and effectively grow their accounts, get better exposure, network and more. I also teach a photo editing class and provide mentoring on Instagram as well. I am very passionate about helping others gain the confidence to pursue what they are wanting to do.

My style is a mix of Modern and Modern Farmhouse – I gravitate towards white, black, blue, wood, greenery, clean lines, bold statements, and general simplicity. I believe in mixing the old with the new – keeping items we hold near and dear to our hearts, and displaying them in a thoughtful way while maintaining balance in a room. My goal is to create spaces that are ultimately serene, welcoming, and interesting to the eye. Some of my favorite designers are Nate Berkus and Studio McGee. 

I love being creative and am open to and excited about opportunities to do all kinds of work within the decor realm. I am thankful I decided to take that first photo – it was the start of this wonderful journey that continues to inspire and challenge me. 

It has been such a wonderful experience to upgrade my home using Ashley furniture!
