JP Photography is now offering Senior Videos!! (YAY!!!)

Guess what!!!! That should be easy to do if you read the title with all the exclamation points, but… I am so excited to debut our first Senior Feature Video!

Seniors, you can now include your own sweet video with your JP Senior Session!

First one up is Jackie, a 2014 Senior at Renton High School.  Jackie wanted to include some of her family’s Samoan heritage in her session as well as some more casual shots in her everyday clothes. Turned out to be a beautiful session with a beautiful girl, check it out!

Visit the  JP Senior Site or shoot me an email at jennifer@jpphotographyonline.com to get your session booked!

A Family For Every Child, WA State // Volunteer Photographer

I have been trying to figure out for a while now the best way to combine my passions for photography and helping others. I’ve donated plenty of sessions in the past, but aside from giving away free photos it doesn’t really feel like it helps anyone. Well, I am very excited to say that I have found a way to do this that seems to be my perfect fit for helping others through photography. Actually… I have found and started doing this in three totally different ways, but for now I am only going to tell you about one ;)

And here’s a really dorky action shot of me doing my thing  :)

If you haven’t heard of A Family For Every Child, check them out! They are a non-profit serving Washington and Oregon. Their mission is to find loving adoptable homes for children waiting in foster care. They have volunteer opportunities nationwide which is a huge support in doing all the great work that they do.

Last week I had the opportunity to be a volunteer photographer with them!  The Heart Gallery  is their program that works with professional photographers to take photos of children that are waiting to be adopted. These photos will be used on website, fliers, and bios about them to show them in a positive light and illustrate a little glimpse into their personality.

I love to make these sessions into a fun activity and capture them being themselves. It was great to spend some time with David last week, learn about his interests and get some fun photos! Click here: to check out David’s bio including some photos from our session! David is a friendly and easy-going guy, we had a great time!

I’m so happy to have connected with A Family For Every Child and am excited for next time!

Hannah, Class of 2014 Senior – Eatonville Photographer

Meet Hannah!! She will be graduating next year from Eatonville High School. She is part of my JP Senior Model Team this year AND she does modeling through a Seattle agency. I bet I didn’t have to tell you that though, because you can see for yourself when looking at her photos that she is an awesome model! Her gorgeous friend Casey is also part of my Senior Model Team. They did their Senior Sessions together and were so much fun to shoot with. They had me laughing the entire night! Tacoma Senior Photographer (1).jpg

Happy HALF Birthday Aurora! // Tacoma Family Photographer

Miss Aurora just had her very first half birthday (if you know me, you know I’m a big fan of half birthdays)! We recently got together to photograph her 6 Month Session. I did her Newborn Session when she was just 6 days old. It’s going to be so fun watching her grow in her first year! 6 month children family puyallup photo
