Jasmine is coworker Lorna's daughter. It's hard to believe that she's a senior already. Jasmine is going on to college and hopes to become a nurse. I know Lorna is so proud of her. I am too.


Here's Lorna and her family. Lorna started working with us when she was 21 years old, just a few years older than Jasmine's age now. I get choked up when I think about that. There are quite a few of us that have worked together for over 20 years, some of us for almost 30 years! So special yah! So family.

Jasmine is so photogenic it was hard narrowing down photos for this post. Here are all the photos that I just had to share.

Jalna, all of Jasmine's photos are so beautiful. I can see why it would be hard to pick which ones to share. I also like all the settings. Hee hee, I think she is also going to have a hard time deciding which ones to give to her friends.

Thanks Celia. You know what I've been doing lately. I first set my camera to "P" mode and see what it gives me and then work from there. I still sometimes have no clue what settings to use and "P" at least gives me a hint.

Your portrait shots are sooo beautiful! I'm glad to know you used your 100mm since I have the same I have some hope... :-) I really like the 3rd shot w/ the yellow background and the one w/ the purple flowers! Thanks for sharing your secrets..

jalna said...

Thank you Shun Wah!! I'm so glad you have the 100mm too!! I think it's taking over as my favorite lens.
