Despite what the Colorado weather forecast has been telling me lately, spring has sprung. And with it, the JLP Senior Rep program! I am so excited about the group of models I have for the Class of 2017, and cannot wait to share them with you.
Starting with Marissa!
Marissa is a rising senior at Fountain Valley School, and she is actually the very first JLP Rep who is also a student of mine. How lucky am I? I get to teach AND photograph this lovely lady!
I thought it would be more fun for you to hear her words rather than mine, so I asked Marissa to share a little bit about herself, as we share her spring JLP Rep portraits.
As cheesy as it sounds, in my free time I really just enjoy hanging out with my friends. Watching movies, going on hikes, eating food that's bad for us. Just hanging around and having a good time.
Three words that describe me are open-minded, forgiving, and curious.
I would move to Seattle, WA. I just love the rain. Plus, then I can become Meredith Grey and life would be perfect!
What excites me most is being in the mindset of doing everything full-hearted, because it's the last time I will get to.
Not knowing when or how often I will get to see my friends after graduation, and not living the "normal" life that I have had for the last 3 or 4 years.
Passionate but indecisive at times.
When I was younger, I fell out of a window and my mom told me that an angel caught me.
An athletic trainer or some kind of therapist.
Say goodbye to a member of my family, Tyler.
I am all about second, third, fourth chances. I love how forgiving I can be, and how willing I am to love those who love me.
Thank you Marissa, for these wonderful words, and for a super fun photo shoot! I'm so excited to have you in the JLP Rep family, and I cannot wait to spend the upcoming months photographing you!
