Hey guys, it’s Rachel Pluckebaum, a senior at Pike High School. I am the editor in chief of the Pike’s Peek Yearbook staff and run varsity for my cross country team. This summer I got to start off my senior year with my senior pictures being taken by the one and only JJ Kaplan.
Not only did my pictures turn out beautiful, but my session was a blast! I had my picture taken with outfits ranging from shorts and cowboy boots to a more glam look wearing my prom dress. JJ is so willing to take you to multiple locations that are just beautiful on their own. Such as a field of wild flowers and a country setting with a fence and hay stack. Of course she would go anywhere you want to have the pictures taken because she is so flexible. Talking with JJ throughout the whole session I got to know her and she took the time to get to know me in order to capture my personality in my pictures. We really bonded as did my mom and JJ. The indoor session was just as fun as the outdoor session. JJ has so many props and backdrops that you could really be there for hours-which I was! Thanks to JJ I got the perfect senior pictures I was looking for!
I am a senior at greenfield-central high school and will be attending indiana university in the fall to major in human biology. I am currently the cheer captain of the varsity cheer team and run track and field in the spring. I love to ride horses in my free time, sing, and read. I am a member of two choirs at my high school and will be acting in the musical this spring. I have participated in several pageants and was the 2012 Riley festival queen.
Working with JJ in her studio was an amazing experience. She was able to capture all that I am involved in! She warmly welcomed both my mom and I into her studio and made us feel right at home. I am so thankful for all that she has done for me and the beautiful pictures she has produced!
When I first started creating this image in my mind, I knew that Mia was my perfect model. She is beautiful on the inside and outside and this image really captures her radiance. Thank you for helping me create this stunning image for you!
