SENIOR OF THE MONTH – DECEMBER – NICOLE GAVIN

My name is Nicole Gavin and I am from Zionsville, Indiana. I’m currently a senior at Guerin Catholic High School and I plan to major in Biology with intention of going to Medical School. I love to sing and I am in two choirs at Guerin: Golden Voice and GCGND (Guerin Catholic Girls Next Door A Cappella).
Working with JJ was a very enjoyable experience. I usually feel uncomfortable getting my picture taken, but JJ helped me feel cool and confident throughout the session. The shoot was easy to set up and I couldn’t believe how amazing the pictures turned out! JJ completely captured my personality with her lens and I am so grateful to have these photos to look back on for years to come.

SENIOR OF THE MONTH – NOVEMBER – DUSTIN BROYLES

My name is Dustin Broyles and I live in Indianapolis, Indiana. I am in my senior year of high school at Traders Point Christian Academy. I am on my school’s baseball team and I also play travel ball all year round. I plan on attending Indiana University and majoring in Biology or Chemistry in order to have my prerequisites for Dental School.

I had the opportunity to work with JJ on my senior pictures both outdoors and in her studio. She also did senior pictures for my older brother and those looked fantastic. I knew that JJ would be able to capture some great pictures of me in and out of her studio. She made the session very natural, comfortable, and especially fun! After seeing the pictures, it is easy to say that I am very happy with how they turned out. Big thank you to JJ for taking the time to capture my senior pictures!

SENIOR OF THE MONTH – OCTOBER – OLIVIA EYSTER

My name is Olivia Eyster and I live in Brownsburg, Indiana. I attend Brownsburg High School as a senior, and I participate in color guard. I hope to attend IU next fall for pediatric oncology nursing. Towards the end of my junior year I volunteered at the Princess for A Day fundraiser. JJ happened to be one of the photographers there, and was in need of a model for a photography class she was teaching a couple weeks from then. After modeling for her I was given the chance to become one of her senior reps.

JJ had made the photography class so enjoyable and fun I knew this was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss. On the actual day of my pictures I was ecstatic to begin. JJ made me feel comfortable and overall made sure I had a good time. All of the outdoor locations we went to were stunning, and I knew the pictures would turn out amazing. Though the entire experience was fun my all-time favorite part was my aqua session. They were so unique and different I knew I had something in my senior pictures other seniors didn’t. When I came back to see the finished product,I was blown away. All of my pictures were absolutely stunning. Especially those from my aqua session. All the colors were so vibrant and overall the picture was just breathtaking. JJ is an extremely talented photographer and I’m so grateful I chose her to take my senior pictures.

FAMILY PORTRAITS – WHAT TO EXPECT – BY JODY OLSON

 

“I’d always admired the unique photos taken by JJ and used in advertisements for her Color My World Studio. When my son went to college, I missed him immensely and felt we should have some family photos taken before he “flew the coop” permanently. JJ was so helpful by referring me to her Pinterest page and her web page to get ideas.

When the day came to shoot our photos, I was nervous but JJ made it all so easy and natural! She even had my stoic teenage son smiling like a pro!

Picking out our photos was hard because they all were fantastic. They weren’t just photos, they were works of art. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to have these special keepsakes in my home!”

SENIOR OF THE MONTH – JULY – SOPHIE HANSON-RINEHART (all the way from WISCONSIN!!!!)

My name is Sophie Hanson-Rinehart and I live in Milton, Wisconsin. I am entering my senior year at Milton High School. I am on my school’s poms/dance team and I competitively downhill ski in the winter.  I plan to attend IUPUI next fall and will be trying out for their dance team in the spring. In Milton, basically all senior pictures are done by 4-5 different photographers in the area. Therefore, most senior pictures in my area look all relatively similar to each others. So, as soon as my junior year was closing, I knew I wanted to do something different and creative with my senior pictures.
I am an Indiana girl at heart, and that all started when I went to the Indianapolis 500 when I was 4. I have since gone every year since then and that has made me fall in love with IMS and Indiana. I thought it was an amazing idea to have my senior pictures done at IMS because it is like home to me and it was different. I found JJ and found her award winning photo of her son at IMS and immediately contacted her. She was quick to respond and was eager to get me down to Indiana to take my pictures.
I had pictures taken at IMS, several outdoor locations and the studio. The locations JJ had for me were amazing and beautiful. It was an incredible experience thanks to JJ. She made me feel very comfortable and made things fun! I will never forget the happiness and excitement I had that day. I was so eager to everything she had gotten over the course of the day. When we returned to Indiana to see the pictures, I was stunned. They were so amazing and beyond beautiful. JJ is a true professional and does wonderful work. Even though I live 2 states away, it is well worth the drive to get portraits taken by her. Thank you, JJ for making my senior pictures something I will never forget.
