The Real Pokahontas // Chicago Model Test Shoot

Reconnection: (rē′kə-nĕkt′)

v. re·con·nect·ed, re·con·nect·ing, re·con·nects: 1. to meet or come in contact with someone after a long absence.
I Imagine sitting next to someone over the course of your middle school years that you instantly connected with. You were a bit crazy, so forcing that person to watch every Johnny Depp film didn’t seem absurd and completely psycho. Now, that person is a published model sitting across from you as you reconnect for what could be considered the thousandth time. Except this time, it’s because you’re creating something beautiful.

Chicago Model 

Armetta Floyd - Jasemine Denise Photography-19

As I’m writing this, Pokahontas and I are coming upon our fifth session together. (Yeah, so I’m a little late!) All it took was one meeting, one hour of grade school giddy laughter in a Starbucks and suddenly, a muse-on-muse collaboration began. Our intention was to simply get a feel for shooting with each other.


Knowing everything about each other doesn’t constitute having the power to follow and give direction, so here we were… Outside of a Starbucks, shivering and laughing as we made magic.

Yeah, I know! She’s such a silly one but her work is truly amazing! You can follow her on Instagram as well as like her Facebook page. She’s worked with some very talented and creative Chicago photographers outside of me. She’ll be back on this blog sooner than you think!

Is it Your Turn Yet?

The floor for booking a photo session with Jasemine Denise Photography is always open, and yes! I do travel. As a matter of fact, I just got back from Michigan. (Wait until you see those photos!) If you click the button on the left below, you’ll be able to check out the portfolio and book your own session. If you click the button on the right, you’re probably saying “Ehhh, I’m into taking pictures but I’m not ready yet.” That button means you’re subscribing for more of the madness and magic until you’re ready to make some of your own!

    […] since we were kids. If you want a little backstory on how long we’ve known each  other, check out her test session. For now, we started out our session out with some simple portraits. Well, nothing’s really […]
