Hey folks! Today I'd like to invite you in on a conversation between my beautiful friend Jessica and myself. Let's jump right in!
Jessica: All through my college education I worked full-time, often juggling multiple jobs. I’m also married and have a little girl. All my time and energy has been spent working on my degrees for the betterment of my family. When I’m not doing schoolwork or hanging out with my family, I like to write and garden.
Amy: How was your photo session experience?
Jessica: My photo shoot was a little different because I worked with two photographers, Amy and Eric Stephen of EDS Photography. It was nice to have so much attention and have two creative minds working together to ensure beautiful photos! I have love for art and photography, and I already know Amy’s style really well. She has a special quality of making people feel comfortable around her, she’s fantastic!
Amy: (Blushes) Why did you choose the Tarleton campus for your session?
Jessica: I have a creative streak and I love to try new things, but I really wanted to go with the traditional location of using my college campus for my graduation pictures for a number of reasons. Tarleton is big on tradition has been a huge part of my life for the past 10 years. I have obtained two degrees from the university and spent hundreds of hours within its gates. It’s the epitome of Texas heart and soul. It’s the place where I made my dreams come true. Not to mention the campus is beautiful! I have always thought so and now I have images to remember all the reasons I love the campus.
Amy : What are your plans for after college graduation?
J essica: I will graduate with my degree in counseling psychology. I want to help people. Throughout my time with Tarleton I have spent a lot of time teaching and interning with undergraduate students. I really hope to continue my career with Tarleton and make a difference through education and relating to people.
Amy: What was your biggest fear or worry about the photo shoot?
Jessica: This shoot occurred at a really crazy time in my life. I’ve been working really hard for a long time and I was still stressing about deadlines and job applications. I was afraid my photos would show my worries. Luckily when I’m working with Amy we never stop laughing and she put me at ease. I feel like the photos were exactly what I was going for.
And now I'd like to introduce Frankie, Jessica's husband. She doesn't know it yet but he has something he wanted to add to the conversation.
Frankie: One of the things I love and respect about Jess is that once her mind is made up about something she's going to make it happen. It may take longer than she'd like, but I've never seen her not accomplish what she's set out to do. She always tries harder where others may have given up, and even when she's surrounded by negativity she stays strong. I've always felt she was going to be special from day one. I rarely get that sort of feeling about a person and I feel it very strongly within her. I see her grow and learn everyday and I'm certain that's what is going to make her excel at whatever she wants to do in life. I'm very proud and blessed to be a part of her life and see her goals being met and dreams coming true through all her hard work!
Here's one of my favorites from their family session a few years ago.
