Want to Hear from our Featured Artist of the Month: Jennifer Means?
The Person Behind the Photos:
"I picked up my first professional camera about 2 years ago. About a year into shooting with families and portraits I started to feel like I wanted to experiment with other things, not a lot of other things, particularly I was interested in shooting portraits of women. I have been inspired by several photographers. Some local and some famous. But, my very first shoot with a model was before I ever followed anyone...I call that the "motel shoot". I had this idea in my head, and I have no idea where it came from, but I wanted to show the other side of beautiful. I guess, that has been sort of the theme of my creative work ever since. It's 100% in stark contrast to my family work. I am a Gemini and my mom always says these are the two sides of my personality....maybe that's true. Some of the models I work with joke that when you shoot with me you have to be ready to get sad. It's almost like therapy session between us. I typically put on moody music and we talk, about relationships, the industry, and the future. The models all have a story and are all so different. I feel that really contributes to the images. I think I am most inspired by the subject and how I felt as a young woman. I think the images are a little bit of both of us. " ~Jennifer Means Follow her on Instagram: @jennifermeansphotography
