Family Pictures – A Success!

We have been planning our family portraits with Jenn Hopkins for a few months now.  I took time to plan out what we would each wear.  I scoured Pinterest for props and pose ideas (which were not necessary at all with Jenn…).  I was determined to make these our best family photos yet. And then, I ruined it last Tuesday. One morning, I was having major technology issues in my classroom, and while we waited for tech support to arrive, my students and I were just chatting and hanging out…

Family Photo Prep Time

This coming weekend, we are meeting with the fabulous Jenn Hopkins for our annual family portraits.

Meeting Jenn Hopkins (and her sweet momma) was even more awesome than the photographs she took that day. She was sweet, kind, down to earth, and someone you just want to hang out with. I wanted to curl up on a couch with a cup of coffee and talk to her…

Jenn Hopkins – YOU ROCK!

When we first moved to Florida, I got an email from a photographer friend of my sister’s who offered to do family portraits for our little family of three.  Jenn Hopkins was a sorority sister of my sister’s and she now has her own photography company, Jenn Hopkins Photography.  The pictures came out so perfectly that I ended up using Jenn to do my pictures for this website and for press packets and media kits for my blog.             Naturally, when it came time for…
