It all started when...

I saw a need for a new version of senior portraits.  I wasn't interested in providing the shoot-and-share images that so many photographers provide.  I was looking to invest in my clients as much as they invested in me, to provide them with real, tangible images they could look at as much as they wanted, not just digital files with no actual printed portraits.  I was looking to have this rite of passage turn into a celebration of a journey, the embodiment of a story seventeen years in the making, and a day of self-love these young adults could look back on for the rest of their lives, and share with generations.  If you've ever seen a really great portrait of an ancestor and been able to tell their sparkle, spirit, and passion, that's the feeling I've brought back.  The JDP senior line is so much more than pictures.  It's an experience to be treasured and anticipated and celebrated!
