Only Death Will Stop Me.

Mar

24

I’ve given everything to this company and I don’t plan to stop with Covid-19.

You have the right to change your mind. Anytime. Change your course. Do what you want. No one actually cares what you choose to do to make you happy. If they do, they need to check themselves.

Covid-19 took almost everything from my company.

Returned Remaining Balances for canceled events (thousands). Canceled Session after canceled session (thousands). Canceled contract after canceled contract (thousands). I haven’t gone this long without booking since the first six months I started five years ago.

It’s not over. This pandemic will take more. It has already promised to continue to effect this studio until 2022 at the earliest. But I’m not going anywhere.

Well-meaning individual: “You know…you could probably get a job for 60k a year with your skillset.”

“I’d rather die. I’ll shoot dogs in lingerie if I have to.”

My youth is yours.

I’ll change my name.

I’ll change the companies name.

We’ll leave the country if we have to.

I’m 29, today. This Shit just got started.

I’m the idiot that doesn’t know when to stop because they’re so invested. If I don’t have this…I have no reason to get out of bed. I don’t live for others. Never have, never will. This is my legacy. If I’m not making waves in my industry, I’m not alive.

So bankrupt me. Take my camera, The Studio. Take whatever the fuck you want if you must. I’ll find a way. And I’ll come back stronger.

I’m mad. I’m fierce. I have the blood of a true entrepreneur running through every.fucking.vein.

I’m on my own unique mission called life.

Only death will stop me.

Today? I’m not okay. But I will be.

Sincerely, Jaclynn

Only Death Will Stop Me.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
