Jillian has been a client/model/friend for a while now.
A couple years ago when I was looking for models to build a portfolio, her kind sister Jade volunteered. Through Jade, I met Jillian, and Jillian has been a sweet soul ever since!
She was part of my senior model group photoshoot, the gossip girl back to school photoshoot, and then her very own senior pictures! It's been fun watching her future take shape throughout the year and a half or so that I've known her.
We did her photo shoot a while ago when it was pretty cold, so look at these pictures and feel glad that it's warm! Nonetheless, like a true farm girl, she strapped on her cowboy boots and said "let's do this."
We spent most of the photoshoot talking about her upcoming excursion to PARIS! We're kindred spirits in that sense because it's been my life long dream to go. By the way, I'm going in November! No big deal. ;)
Eiffel tower bracelet...Eiffel tower shirt...gotta show it off! ;)
There are a lot of layers to Jillian. She's funny, quirky, sweet, serious, dramatic, girly, hipster, a farm girl, and more...it keeps it interesting and fun!
She just enlisted in the Navy!!!
After the photo shoot Jillian and her sweet mama treated my husband and I out to lunch at a cute cafe downtown. I truly do have the best clients!
I'm feeling a little nostalgic. One thing about specializing in seniors is that you get to photograph them in a pivotal moment in their life and then watch them go off and "face the world!" Hmm..maybe this is 1/10th of what mothers feel.
It's truly been a pleasure, Jillian.
