A caring and beautiful person gives life to all those around them, and Jillian is one of those marvelous people. She’s graduating from Ernest Righetti High School, and is moving on to Allan Hancock College for two years, then onward to California State University in Fresno to finish a degree in Child Development. She has great aspirations for her life, and is living them out as she holds the office of Vice President of the Associated Student Body, and plays varsity soccer. I loved the style of Jillian’s session; the colors and the atmosphere made for some wonderful senior photos featuring Jillian’s wonderful personality.
We shot the portraits in the cute little village of Arroyo Grande, and utilized the great mix of nature and urban vibes to create a truly unique set of photos. Jillian’s wardrobe was perfect, even down to her lovely burnt orange nails, and it went wonderfully with each location. We worked together to figure out a good vision for her senior session, and with her input, we created multiple palettes and moods for each shot. I especially love the one showcasing Jillian’s pearly smile, green link fence, and her complimentary outfit. She describes her style as earthy; it might be a style that’s not worried about added frills, but it’s one that’s grounded, truly representing her personality.
Jillian looks up to her dad, because he is well respected. It’s a trait of her whole family, something I witnessed when I handled Jillian’s brother’s senior photos, and her mother’s wedding. They’re good people with warm hearts, and it’s been an honor to capture each of their unique spirits. It was a joy to get to know Jillian, and her interest in working with kids. I know that she’s going to go far, and impact many lives with her wisdom and care. It’s such a blessing to witness someone passionate about caring for the development and flourishing of children, and I can’t wait to see how Jillian puts her passion to use.
I wish you all the best, Jillian! I'm proud to be your namesake.
