Jillian | Hippie Music-Inspired Shoot | Class of 2022 | John Carroll | Maryland Senior Photographer

Meet Jillian! Jillian is a class of 2022 DOP Senior Rep from the John Carroll School. When planning her senior session with Des, Jillian envisioned a 60's hippie look. She expressed her vision to Des and Des went all out in making her dream into a reality! Des knew that to make this whole vision come to life she needed the perfect accessory - a vintage VW bus! After searching high and low, she finally found the perfect one at Hybridoma Organic Fruit Farm! This adorable pistachio green van would totally bring to life Jillian's vision. Des actually made a pit stop on the way home with Jillian on the side of the road to catch the amazing sunset which provided the most beautiful backdrop for some final images with Jillian's ukulele.

Here is what Jillian had to say about her senior session:

" My senior experience with Des was incredible! My vision was to try and create a hippie/flower child look for my photos, and Desiree went above and beyond to make it all possible. She worked very hard to get a Volkswagen bus to use for my pictures, and that meant so much to me. I also wanted to incorporate music into my pictures, and Des had amazing ideas that included music sheets and my ukulele. Overall, working with Desiree was incredible and I'm so lucky to have had this experience! "

Here is 2022 DOP Senior Rep, Jillian's senior session. Enjoy!
