Now, before everyone starts commenting in an uproar over the title, if you’re a reader of my blog you should know my titles aren’t always as they seem.
There is a photographer in Indiana, Pa, Jennifer McKendrick of Jen McKen Photography.
Up until the other day she was just another photographer trying to make her mark in the world. Her actions have catapulted her up there.
You see a part of Jen’s business is doing senior photos. As we all remember it’s that special time of the senior year when you get all dressed up and have hundreds of photos taken to pick 3. It’s fun and I liked it. It was probably the only time in my schooling life I was ever made to feel beautiful.
So what sets her apart from other photographers?
She’s not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Not bullying others.
She cancelled appointments with about 4 seniors who she found were bullying others using Facebook. She has since refunded their deposits, took screen shots of the negative comments (which went beyond the usual you’re ugly and you have bad clothes.) and sent them along with an email to the students parents.
What? Is she crazy? Why would she do that? Isn’t she afraid of losing business?
Yes, she cancelled the appointments and I commend her for doing that. She has morals and as she said she doesn’t want to photograph ugly people. (Don’t get your panties in a bunch, ugly on the inside.)
“I don’t want to photograph them, I don’t want them to be a part of my business image and I don’t want them on my blog,” Jennifer McKendrick told Channel 4 Action News’ Ashlie Hardway.
