Summer, Summer, Summertime!
Hey there! I am so, so excited to be gearing up for my Class of 2017 Senior Season! The end of May through mid-August is usually INSANE around here, in the best of ways! We're able to meet so many amazing seniors and be an important part of their senior year. Learning their stories, plans for the future, and what they value gives me a glimpse into what life is like for this generation and how they intend to change their world.
My favorite challenge in my craft is taking all of that personality, drive, and beauty, and capturing it on (digital) film. This means I have to do whatever it takes to bring out their personalities and make them shine, whether it's laying on the ground for the perfect angle or saying silly things to make them laugh.
Sometimes it can be tough to open up to a stranger and bare your soul after just a brief introduction. That's why we take the time to meet with our seniors BEFORE their session, so they know exactly what to expect and can be comfortable from the get-go.
Our Class of 2017 Senior Models get a head start on this whole process, because we know each other VERY well by the time their senior session comes around. We've met with each of our model teams three times so far, and as of next Monday we'll have another gathering under their belt. I'm so excited to meet with my whole model team at our Model Reveal Party! We get to show them their top images from their model sessions (they all did SO WELL!!!) and talk about our next model events. BFF shoots, car washes, and beach parties, oh my!
Want a peek into the crazy fun that is a JDP Model shoot? Our new media and marketing guy Ben stopped by during our Fresh model shoots to take some video of the whole experience so you can see what it's like here at the JDP studio. Take a look and see who you recognize from our 2016 Fresh model shoots!
Loving what you see? We still have a few (but JUST a few!!) sessions available this summer, and we're starting to book both Senior and Fresh sessions in the fall. If you want in on the JDP experience, don't wait to call! (814) 464-1184 is where you'll find us! Can't wait to hear from you!
