Katelyn and Melanie shoot

Sooo, this is my newest shoot, it was lots of fun, however it was SUPER hot and humid!! The location is in my college town and its this park that i had wanted to visit. It turned out to have some potential as a backdrop so we got to working. these 2 girls are sp great to work with! They are the 2 girls that i really became friends with when i was at school and i spent countless hours with them. I hope you enjoy the pictures here, to see the full shoot visit my facebook :) dont hesitate to "like" the page so that you can get updates on any of my shoots to come!/pages/Photography-by-Jasmine-V/124773377538222

Im on a boat?

ok, so i apoligize for the slightly cheese title, but really i was on a boat. Summer has been great, work has consumed my life, but luckily i have a week off to enjoy, of course its half over but ive enjoyed ever bit of it. Tomorrow i havve a shoot with some friends from school that i wont be seeing for a while, ugh long story, possibly a different post. but anyways its going to be lots of fun. These 2 girls have a small cake business out of their apartment, so im going to act almost as advertisement, which is great. I also have 2 more clients to look forward to in the later months, and hopefully more to come. I am also in the process of looking for models to grow my portfolio, which i am excited about!
I apoligize for not posting on time as i said, however im just working with what i have so bear with me :).
i will update about the shoot!

A little inspiration

so im really trying to keep up with this, ive been suuuper stressed with my fall semester college plans, ( too long of a story to elaborate), however i do have 2 opportunities to get some pictures taken, which im excited about! The fourth of july was a great chance for me to try firework photography, which is like way hard! I did get lucky with a few decent shots but i want to get like a gagillion times better.
I believe ive given links to my different websites that you can reach me on, so i want to ask for each one of you out there to help me out, and give me a little inspiration or advice. Send me an image that you would like to see done in my own way, or a cool style that you are really interested in. Photography to me is not just about personal satisfaction, it is about inspiring peers, and letting them experience scenes that can not otherwise be expressed. I want to grow sooo much in this field, and cant do it without your help :).
So with that said, here is my email again :
Thanks so much!!!

So today is the eve of my first full day of work. Its a shocker to me because i thought i had one more week to relax and get ready. Im still doing to the summer school job, however not as a photographer, with budget cuts i can no longer make a yearbook for them due to the costs, so i was hired as a kindergarden i thought. i got a phone call this morning saying that i needed to show up at my designated school to get our class rooms together, there i found out i will have 3rd through 8th graders, 25+ by myself for 6 so nervous!! in my second interview i had told the lead guy that i did not want the older kids, but of course thats what i got. Tomorrow will have a story to tell im sure. the picture! this is from yesterday, it was the anual memorial day run, so therefore i see this pic as appropriate. So tell me what you think, ill be posting on Deviant Art as well.

Summer has begun!!
i love summer, but the pressures of finding a job in time is something i dread every year. This year was worse than ever as i was woken up the first day of my summer at 630 am, and everyday since I've applied for about 25 jobs in only 1 1/2 weeks, only 1 job has called back. I was referred to this one job by my dad and an old coworker, if i get the job...of which i think i got it...i will be creating a yearbook/scrapbook for a Huntsville City School Summer program. I am very excited that i get to go back to what i started my photography with. Kids are not my strength, however, i will be photographer most of the time. The job wont start until June 7 which is 2 weeks to far away. A plus is that its full time weekdays only all the way through July 30th with work afterwards to finish the book. Hopefully my position will be declared within the next few days and i will be guaranteed this job with 2 weeks of summer until then.
With summer here i shall try to update more trying to find ways to practice my photography more often while im here so look out for that on Deiviant Art, and here of course.
Bye for now :D

Summer is almost here!

So, Friday marked the first day of finals, my first year in college is only going to lat 3 more days, its so hard to believe. Times have been rough, troubles at home and at school keep me on my toes and constantly re-evaluating who i trust. This also marked the first year that i have had more girl friends than guys in a very long time. I'm so used to the layed back, sometimes oddly perverted, ways of guys. They are so much easier to deal with..when something goes wrong either you beat it out, talk to them or blink 10 times and the issue is gone. Girls are so much more complicated! if something goes wrong you have to sensor what you want to say otherwise it might turn for the worse. Time apart from each other lasts so much longer than a guy. But i just have to realize why I've chosen not to be friends with manly guys, Dante. He is my one guy, my best friend, and the love of my life. Having all these girl friends make me appreciate even more everyday that he is a guy and is moderately carefree when it comes to complications outside of our relationship.
So this brings me to my wonderful first day of final :D After my exam i went with a friend to the lake. It was my first time at a lake and i was sooooo excited. Where we went was absolutly beautiful! the sun was out, wind was going and the water wasnt to bad either. so after lathering up with sunscreen and whiping out my target brand Cheese-its i soaked up the warm rays and just relaxed. After a while i couldnt resist taking the camera out to caputure the here it is. my day, Cheese-its + Sunscreen+ amazingly beautiful lake= wonderfully relaxed and happy jasmine :).
Dont forget to check me out on deiviant art :

Hey everyone!!
So if any of you have looked at my Deviant Art lately you will notice that i havent uploaded anything in a while. This is because i am suuuper behind on my editing and actual shoots. We have some great models that are interested and hopefully we will be able to get back into the swing of things now that the weather is pretty nice. So be on the look out within the next month for new pictures and post both on here and my Deviant Art!

Deviant Art

Alright guys, while ive been at school my creative juices have been flowing, so therefore i need an outlet for that. In my case photography :). this link will send you to my deviant art page, here you can look through my gallery. Majority of the gallery was done right here in my small dorm room with my camera, flashlights when needed, florescent lighting, and a bed sheet. Id love to see what you have to say about this and i hope you enjoy

Hey everyone, id like to share this really special picture. this is taken in California, if you look closely to the right edge you can faintly see downtown LA.
This picture is special because it was the scene i saw leaving my aunt's funeral. Its always beautiful to think about a wonderful soul once it has left our world.
Anyways, enjoy :)
