SENIOR OF THE MONTH – SEPTEMBER – MADDIE HOOVER

My name is Maddie Hoover, and I am a senior at University High School. I play varsity tennis, write for the school’s online newspaper, and edit the yearbook. I enjoy cooking, am learning photography, and I am passionate about the Timmy Global Health Organization. I had a chance to travel with them on a medical/dental mission in January and am working to start a chapter of the organization at my high school. In the future I hope to go to dental school and perhaps become an orthodontist.
Selecting JJ as my senior photographer was an easy choice. She took my sister’s senior pictures and did such a great job! My sister is beautiful, but did not really feel pretty until she saw her senior photos. JJ has a way of making kids feel comfortable and bringing out the beauty both on the outside and within. My session with her was great. I do not really like posing for pictures, and I drove my mother crazy leading up to the photo session because I did not even want to try clothes on. We brought outfits from my mother’s, sister’s, and my closet, and JJ helped me to choose what I would feel the most beautiful and comfortable wearing. She made the session easy and fun. We even took a few shots in the swimming pool.
JJ also works to perfect the photos after they are taken. The initial proofs were really great, but the actual photographs were even better. She makes sure that the lighting is perfect and that every flaw is removed. She treats every picture with as much care as she does her own State Fair winning photos. I highly recommend her to any senior who wants a special experience and great photographs.

SENIOR OF THE MONTH – AUGUST – SUMMER RAIN VON SCHWARTZWALDER

Hello! My name is Summer Rain Von Schwartzwalder and I’m from Zionsville High School. I have done so many things with my life, like music, sports, dance, writing, and drawing, but mostly I just love animals. I plan on going to Purdue for veterinary school to become a veterinarian for large, small, exotic, and native wildlife animals.

For my senior pictures, I definitely did my research. I looked through all the ones I knew of and only JJ’s really stood out to me. Hers were not only beautiful, they were original, and not as cookie-cutter as all the ones I’d seen throughout the yearbook. Besides the photos themselves being gorgeous, she made me feel that way! I’m shy and reserved, and really nervous about having a stranger dress me up and take 100s of pictures of me, but she is so bubbly and happy and nice, that I felt completely comfortable almost immediately! Me and my mom had so much fun with her. JJ also took all of my ideas into account. She really cared about ME and who I am. I had some ideas that JJ had never done before, and they turned out wonderful with her help and expertise. I am so glad I went to JJ and not anyone else. You will be so happy with all of your pictures when you make the same decision I did!!

Top 10 Photographer Indiana 2014

The results are finally in from the State Fair Photography Competition.  As a professional, we are judged much more strictly, versus the amateur division.  But this is a way that we continue to grow and improve our art.

This year I am beyond delighted that I received Top 10 Photographer Indiana, as well as

the blue ribbon for Best Color Portrait, red ribbon for Best Black and White Portrait, and an honorable mention for another color portrait.  Here is my 1st place portrait titled, “Pretty, Please?”, the black and white is “Bridled Determination,” and the last is “True Blue Times Two.”  Be sure to visit the fair August 1-17!

SENIORS 2015: Meet Mark from Zionsville Community High School

I’ve had the great pleasure of knowing Mark’s family for several years since his older brother’s senior portrait session.  Just love to work with Lynn and now Mark!  We started at our warehouse location and had the PERFECT evening of light, no bugs, light wind, and low temperatures.  Mark didn’t know what to expect, but he was such a trooper!  We got amazing images outside, then headed to the studio once we lost light.  Thank you soooo much for allowing me to work with you at this great time!
