Today we’re throwing it back to 2012 (I think?) when I went to Boston with Jenn and Hailey (friends and fellow photographers) to attend Jasmine Star’s The Fix and OMG got to meet her and get a photo taken! Jasmine Star is someone I admire because she’s taken what is really a fairly non-glamorous job (wedding and portrait photography) and made herself into what is practically a celebrity. She’s a pretty classic story of growing up with nothing and making herself into a household name (at least to those of us in the industry). She’s talented and charismatic and inspirational to so many people. It was a little weird to be so starstruck to see her, but it’s a surreal experience to follow someone’s blog and read their words on a daily basis and then suddenly they’re right in front of you. She is super down-to-earth and kind and even made a point to comment on our Facebook post about the event, so… that was pretty cool.
