CT High School Photographer ~ Jessica Ellington High School Class of 2014

Oh my ….what can I say about lovely Jessica? She is one of the sweetest and most classiest girl’s I’ve ever met!  We laughed and had a great time together through out her entire session! I love it that Jessica loves photography herself and is looking forward to pursuing it now and in the future….

    Wow! You caught so many of the different expressions of Jessica; her serious side, silly side, peaceful side, and thoughtful side.. It’s so hard to believe that my first “baby” is heading into her senior year and soon to be a college freshman. Thanks again, Catherine. I LOVE these portraits!ReplyCancel

    Catherine you have done it again. These photos of Jessica are absolutely beautiful. I have several favorites. The antique car pic is just so cool but so are her gymnastic pics as well and others. All hard to choose from. I just showed Brenna and she loved that she was a small part of that day with you and Jessica. Beautiful work as usual.ReplyCancel
