Greensburg Salem Class of 2018 Graduate: Meet Jessica

Meet Jessica! Recent Greensburg Salem Graduate and future pre-med track University of Pittsburgh Graduate!! I met with this lovely young lady during my last trip home and had the opportunity to get to know a little bit more about her plans for the future.


We met at Twin Lakes State Park in Greensburg, Pennsylvania for her Senior Portrait Session. This lacrosse playing, honor roll student came prepared! She brought along a few adorable outfits, a Greensburg Salem Graduate balloon and her sweet Yorkshire Terrier.


Mama, Joyce, had won this session during a fundraiser raffle for Cystic Fibrosis Awareness and I was pleased as punch that these ladies had a clear vision as to what they wanted to do during their session.


Jessica is an active young woman with a tight grasp on where she wants her college experience to take her. She spoke with me about her interest in medicine and I found myself wishing I had her confidence at that age.  I encouraged her to chase her passion and life would lead her down the right roads.


I also learned that she was the middle child and you could tell almost immediately that her siblinghood has given her a bit of the gumption that she carries around. She has an older sister who helped paved a lot of paths and a younger brother to practice all her wisdom on!


Did I mention that the weather was absolutely perfect? Oh, man was I thankful for the good weather. I had booked a ton of Portrait Sessions for the upcoming Sunday and it was calling for rain which was a no-can-do. Luckily, most of my sessions offered to switch and at seven months pregnant, I was beyond thankful for their patience and understanding.


She is not just sweet though. She’s polite and kind and absolutely adorable. When she donned the white dress, she glowed. In the yellow, she shined but in the black floral off the shoulder, she was truly a vision of herself. You could tell that she was comfortable , calm cool and relaxed, even when I suggested she jump in the water.


The blooms at the park were the perfect backdrop. Both the azaleas, the laurels and the rhododendrons were in rare form that afternoon and we managed to catch them at their best.


Our last stop was a shack down by the water for a quick few shots of this lady before she would walk across the stage and enter the big, bad world of adulthood. I have no doubt that she will tackle life and all its’ adventures with the same sense of grace and fearlessness that she brought to her studies!


Best of luck to you Miss Jessica and Congratulations! I wish you success in wherever life takes you!!
