A little bit of insight and behind the scenes from the years of portrait photography experiences of the JP team.


Happy Spring

Did you see our Annual Letter?  With the seasons of Iowa, comes variety and that itch for Spring to arrive after we’ve all decided that winter is officially long.  Our photography calendars at JP revolves around the Iowa seasons, with our wrap up and recharge time in late winter, and the new year beginning with the new flowers of spring. 

Our new Annual Letter was our version of a holiday letter (if you missed it, scroll down to check it out) and announced our refreshed website and some other changes we launched and tested in 2014.  During prime season, we get so into our sessions and creating beautiful artwork, we haven’t made much time for website updates and such, but it was a fun project to tackle – I won’t say complete as it is never really done.  We shall see if this year the site gets the ongoing updates we are intending. 

Our plan is to post printing specials from our new photocard partner on the cards page.  Our other goal is to share personal insight into our portrait photography world by sharing our personal portrait projects and the concepts and inspirations with you.  Jackie has been a professional portrait photographer for 35 years and I have professionally been in the business for 17 years.  Our business is personal and we strive to give our clients what we do for our own family and closest friends so we thought using our personal sessions and projects to share ideas would be ideal.  This new format of sharing for us also allows for comments, questions and feedback, so that should be fun.  You can subscribe to receive an email notification when something new (and hopefully interesting) has been posted.  See you soon & Happy Spring.
