Kind Words

Being on the Jody Collective is such an incredible opportunity. I've had such a fun experience being in front of the camera and exploring different concepts and styles. This is only my first year on the team, but I have already made so many memories, and I can't wait to see what we do next.

If I hadn’t experienced these photo events with Jody Rael Photography with my daughter this past year, I would have never seen her during senior year. These events not only gave her experiences and confidence, but it gave me wonderful memories as well. It is not just about the kids; it is about the parents too.

The last year of HS is so busy for the seniors that your program created some fun moments and  memories for Ariana and I. 

Thank you so much for all the fun we had. I will always have fond memories of our time with you, Mindy, Jasmine and your family. 

Ariana and I love you guys!
