Jen

Jen went through a tough time when she was in her 20s.  Faith is important in her family,
and her family prayed for her to succeed in her struggles with addiction.


When she had a daughter three years ago, Jen turned her life around.  The tattoo of the Virgin
and child, a beating heart, and her daughter's name remind Jen of her family's
 support and the journey she has taken.

Jen thought she looked awful without makeup and was at first reluctant to be photographed.
I think she looks awfully good.  What do you think?

Glad she turned her life around.

Jack you are right about her looks. Most people don't see themselves as others see them. Good luck Jen.

A winning smile for someone working hard on her life; not easy, but I bet she will continue to go forward!

Great portrait, lovely lady, but I can't really stand tattoos...

I think she looks great! Who needs makeup with a smile like that? :)

She's beautiful. I'm so glad for her that she has pulled through the tough times. You wouldn't catch me without make-up in a photo, either!

William Kendall said...

A bright smile, light in the eyes. Who needs makeup anyway?

Excellent portrait, Jack!

Bob Crowe said...

The clarity in her eyes tells me she met her challenge successfully. She is radiant. I could take a pass on the tattoos, though.

Makeup? No way... She perfect as is!

Virginia said...

I think she looks like a strong young woman that has a wonderful future!

Her inner beauty shines through

She is very pretty. I really like these portrait/bio shots you have been doing. Do you have a set of questions you ask people or just let the conversation take it's own course?

What a beautiful young lady. Why would she need makeup? Congratulations to her for turning her life around. I'm not into tattoos at all and can't relate to that choice of hers but I'm glad she pulled through.
