“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!”

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.

My name is Tony Vitiritto, and I’m a senior at Carmel High School. I play football and throw shoutout in field. I’m also involved in my school’s orchestra and multiple clubs. I plan on going to college next Fall and majoring in Business Entrepreneurship, as well as continuing my career as a football player.

I had the privilege of working with JJ Kaplan on my senior photos, and coming from someone who doesn’t like their picture taken, she made things enjoyable and easy. She was able to create photos that were what both me and my family wanted. She was able to create scenes for my backdrop that I was impressed by, and throw out ideas that really turned out great. I would for sure recommend JJ and Color My World Studio to anyone looking to get their senior photos done. I had a great time and would choose JJ Kaplan again.

“My name is Samuel Joseph Lobdell, and after living and attending Zionsville schools my entire life I am finally a senior. At ZCHS I’ve dabbled in almsot every sport from soccer, to baseball, to football, and finishing on the Zionsville Me’s Volleyball Team. I also am a part of many organizations such as being the Vice President of Model United Nations, Co-president of Psych Club, member of Best Buddies, and Business Professionals of America. I plan on attending college next fall and competing at the intramural level in volleyball and enjoying Greek life while pursuing a degree in either Law, Finance, or Accounting.

Living in Zionsville my whole life gave me many opportunities to view and distinguish between who to book for senior pictures and i could not be more happy with my decision to work with JJ. She was able to broaden my view as to what can be done for senior pictures and gave me every opportunity to get the best pictures possible; from driving and laughing together all over Zionsville to find just the right location with just the right lighting to letting me choose whichever background or wardrobe that suited me and my personality best JJ was more than helpful in creating the most desirable senior picture experience I ever could have thought of. After working with JJ and Color My World Studio,

I can do nothing less than recommend her for senior pictures or any other shoot in the future “
