I was photographing a farm wedding in northern Minnesota when I met Jacki. I immediately liked this girl with her bright, cheerful personality! We chatted during the wedding as she enjoys photography as well, and learned we both live in the Cities. Recently, I had the honor of photographing her Senior pictures. We met over a casual coffee to talk, and listen to her expectations about her pictures. Learning about my Seniors (before I ever take out a camera) is an important part of what I do as a Photographer. Why would anyone want their pictures to look the same as their other classmates? Every one has a different personality, interests and style to showcase.
Being a simple girl who loves anything to do with the outdoors Jacki suggested having her Senior pictures at Minnehaha Falls near the river and greens. During our evening together, we fought through mosquitoes and extreme humidity - although you could never tell from her glowing smile. In her free time she loves tennis, as well as rollerblading and spending time with friends. This fall, Jacki will to going to school to become a Pediatrics Nurse. She is a beautiful young woman with huge aspirations that include caring for others. The more I learned about Jacki the more I felt like a was talking with a new friend.
Thank you, Jacki, for a beautiful evening and time spent! Enjoy your blog preview! - Pamela
