Jordyn's senior model shoot was a highly anticipated event! lol It had to be perfectly planned out because the window of time for the perfect sunflowers is a short one. And being over 3 hours away we had to make sure we were going at the perfect time, this could not be "redone". Never had I ever stood at the edge of a sunflower field before. The only way I can explain the magnitude of it is to compare it to standing on the beach at the edge of the ocean and looking out over the expansion of it! They just keep going...you can't see the end...a sea of bright yellow for as far as you can see! It's magnificent!
Reflecting on our year together in Jordyn's words;
Jenn: What location did you choose for your senior model shoot?
Jordyn: A sunflower field near UC Davis and we also took some photos on campus and in downtown Davis.
Jenn: Why did you choose this location? What about it inspired you?
Jordyn: I chose my location when I was a freshman! I talked with you about it when my brother Zach was getting his senior photos done and let you know I wanted to have something special and original. A truly beautiful shoot and it was! It was important to me to go there because of my love of sunflowers and wanted to have a different idea of showing my love of nature. I have seen lots of beautiful outdoor photos taken but I wanted mine to be a little different and the flower field was perfect in my eyes.
Jenn: Where did you purchase your outfits for your shoot?
Jordyn: I knew I wanted to wear the overalls and a cute white shirt because I had seen photos of other girls in sunflower fields with similar outfits and I liked that style. I got my overalls from American Eagle and my shirt I already had. I also wanted a long flowy sundress. Jennifer and I decided blue would be the best color with the bright yellow flowers and it was perfect! My dress was from Amazon. As for my other outfits I have no idea. lol They were casual clothes I had in my closet already.
Jenn: What's your favorite memory from your shoot day?
Jordyn: My favorite memory was being there at the sunflower field of course! It was so beautiful and hard to imagine if you haven't been to one. It is just crazy how many there were ant eh lighting was perfect. I was so happy to have it all work out perfectly! Leading up to the shoot we weren't sure if the flowers would be fully bloomed yet or how high they would stand so we were guessing. It turned out perfect!
Jenn: What advice would you give to the class of 2021?
Jordyn: My advice is to enjoy senior year and do EVERYTHING because it goes by so fast! And, you never know if it might go differently or possibly end early so make the most of it. Advice to the 2021 models - have fun, meet new girls, wear cute outfits that you might not wear otherwise. Being the only Summerville model it was really fun to meet girls I have competed in sports against and also ones I would have never known without this experience. I'm grateful for that.
Jenn: Thinking back to this senior year BEFORE Covid19 hit what is your favorite memory or event?
Jordyn: My favorite memory of senior year was soccer season. I love my soccer family so much and being around the girls brings out the best in me. Also having my Dad as my coach is pretty cool and we have made many unforgettable memories together through the years.
Jenn: What are you most grateful for today?
Jordyn: Today I am most grateful for the experiences I have been able to have in high school. I am thankful for my school and the people there that I love and that love me and are truly trying to make the best of this situation for all the students and especially seniors.
Jenn: What's your favorite Disneyland treat?
Jenn: Who is your favorite Disneyland character?
Jordyn: I love all the princesses but I'd say recently Rupunzel is my favorite and I kinda feel like her being trapped in my house! lol But Pocahontas is also a long time favorite, she's cool and I kinda look like her. :)
Jenn: What are you currently watching to occupy your time?
Jordyn: I've been watching lots of Disney+. I've been rewatching all of my favorite childhood shows and movies.
Jenn: When this pandemic is over and we're "released" into the world, what's the first thing you're going to do?
Jordyn: The first thing I'm going to do is go out to eat! That might sound dumb but I really enjoy a good meal at my favorite local restaurants. Also, I've promised myself I won't complain anymore about there being nothing to do in this county anymore because I've been taught that there are things I wish I could do but haven't been able to.
