Look Great, Feel Great

Before COVID-19, I thought about signing up for Air BNB experiences and taking tourist photos for others in Philadelphia. Then the pandemic hit and I put those plans on hold.

As I was looking to plan a vacation, I took notice of all the experiences in NYC. I want to visit the New York beaches for a few days this year. Anyway, I decided to see what experiences Philadelphia had and the Look Great, Feel Great photo session looked fun. For $25, why not?

Matthew was great and I had a lot of fun. We gelled and the 45 minutes went quickly. My photos look great too. Here are a few:

Like I said, this was a fun photo shoot and after, Matthew walked me to the train. I was telling him about my plans to do something in Old City and he said, “you totally should! You have a professional camera and you’d get a lot of business.”

One thought on “Look Great, Feel Great”

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m happy to know your aching head feels better today, dear friend. Yessum, the best laid plans were sidelined last year when the plague struck. As I think back over your posts from the last 12 or 13 months, I think it’s fair to say that you managed quite well to get out there and find ways to enjoy life and continue to educate yourself. Now I see that you assumed the role of a model and starred in your very own photo shoot via Philadelphia’s Look Great, Feel Great program. I love the photos taken during the session, especially the trick photography. It reminds me of my dad, the lifelong shutterbug, who routinely went to the York library, checked out books on camera tricks and tried numerous techniques to make his pictures fun conversation starters. The shot of you upside down reminds me of the Lionel Richie hit “Dancing On The Ceiling” and it also could pass as a deleted scene from the 2020 miniseries The Queen’s Gambit. 🙂 Matthew seems like a great guy and a supportive friend.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
