Telling Your Story

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
kay, so how do I begin this post? I'm so overwhelmed with gratitude and thankfulness. Seriously. For those who came to the Untold Stories presentation last night, thank you. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was incredibly overwhelmed with the outpouring of support and dedication to those who stood in line to talk afterward. A more thorough breakdown and recap is coming soon, but for now, I'm incredibly honored to share the new Jasmine Star commercial produced by Anton Lorimer...

Carl Reid - These are great tips with respect to story telling. In particular, the idea of leaving the story title to the end. Lately, I've been collecting my thoughts through debates I have with my self in my dreams. I'm not sure if it helps me develop a great story but rather great questions and answers pertaining to how I see my self as a photographer. Thanks for inspiring us Photogs, Regards, Carl from T.O.  02.26.11 - 10:09pm

Natasha Hurley - I think it is the story and the details of our lives that are what we look back on. My Great Grandpa used to saw orff (off) in such an amazing and endearing cockney accent. I heard someone say that today on the way to work and it gave me a jolt. These are the details of our lives that make up what i believe is interesting to future family, friends and bystanders. Thank you jasmine for putting into words so well how life is a story and breaking the barriers of how it should be led. X   02.24.11 - 2:42pm

I was struck by your kindness and genuineness (a real word?) even after meeting with fans for so long. Thank you for setting such a strong example in our industry...keep doing what you do best.

Breanne - Wow. You inspire me regularly, but this... there are no words.  02.22.11 - 1:53pm
Rachel - Awesome! The idea of telling my own story is something that has been on my mind a lot this year. This is just another evidence that I do have a story and it's worth telling and (even more importantly) that I can love it. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring. :-)  02.22.11 - 1:48pm
Josh - That was awesome! You're a Rock Star!  02.22.11 - 1:33pm

Awakening and challenge people to think of how they want to write their own story. Love. Anh  02.22.11 - 12:04pm
Amanda Donaho - I love how Donald Miller-esque this is! Beautiful!  02.22.11 - 12:02pm
Hugo Tepe - I love these! I always think of how you say that the experience you're giving your client isn't only the great photography but the experience of having YOU as the photographer.   02.22.11 - 11:54am
Emily Dobson - Speechless... In a good way. :)   02.22.11 - 11:52am
Carrie K - I love the commercial! I especially love recognizing the places you shot it since I was there last year. Ahhhh Italia *sigh*. Would you be able to sometime post about posing ideas and how you work with somewhat awkward clients-the process of getting them to loosen and be more themselves in front of the camera? Enjoy Vegas!  02.22.11 - 11:45am
Zsuzsa - Love it! Where did you buy that beautiful brown bag?????  02.22.11 - 11:43am
Dina - "all of us what to be a part of something amazing..." yes, yes, yes! and what is truly remarkable is how God involves us in our individual works and pursuits and gifts and explodes it times eternity to give others a taste of His glory in and through us. my story alone, though perhaps amazing, is coupled with His divine plan to create my true destiny, something my efforts alone could never accomplish. so thrilled to have traveled along with you since your early blog and witnessed His divine plan unfolding beautifully through your life!  02.22.11 - 11:35am

Monica Martin - You always inspire me to step up my game. Daily I'm filled with ideas, things I want to shoot, things I want to blog about and I don't because "I don't have time." I have three kids and am so busy, and never find the time to fulfill what makes me happy --taking more pictures and blogging more, cause I'm so busy being a mom and a wife. This post moved me so much, thank you, thank you, for the constant reminder to work hard towads what I love --photography....   02.22.11 - 10:34am

Rachel C. - *LOVE* it. I don't think I've commented here before, but I watched your week of creative live, and have followed your blog for a looong time. Wishing I could drive the 1.5 hours up to Akron when you'll be there! :) Thanks for all your encouragement to photographers. :)  02.22.11 - 9:50am
Ana GR - Jasmine, this is awesome! Beautiful, inspirational, gorgeous, perfect! LOVED it! As always, thanks for posting such good articles from which I learn soooooooo much!  02.22.11 - 9:43am
Katie - Amazing! You live out an incredible story that everyone wants to be a part of or learn from. That, to me, is success.  02.22.11 - 9:43am
stephanie - beautiful! And I love your handwriting!!!  02.22.11 - 9:41am
Debbie Schwab - I knew the video would be cool, thought provoking, beautifully shot... I didn't expect for it to bring me to tears. Learning to be a photographer has taught me that not only do I need to hone my skills in so many areas (technical, customer service, marketing, branding, etc.) but maybe it's more important to hone me. With so many people wanting to be someone else (like you for instance) I really just want to know what it's like to be me... the best me. Thank you for putting into words what I struggle to do everyday.  02.22.11 - 9:40am
Amy - You are such an inspiration, just gotta love you!!   02.22.11 - 9:33am
Jenelle Sewell - So amazing...  02.22.11 - 9:26am

Kelly Green - your videos are always so inspiring, this is one of the next things I want to attempt for my brand - a promo video. I would love to see the out takes from this - I best you had a blast making it!!  02.22.11 - 8:56am
Ana Telma - What can I say? This is just fabulous... and touching. And watched the video and then... I just had to watch it again. And when I finished watching for the second time, there it was my reflection on the screen. What am I doing to write my own story? I wonder if you have any idea of how much you inspire us... I don't think you do! Thank you so much for everything. Always.  02.22.11 - 8:53am
Gabrielle - LOVE this! So beautiful, Jasmine! Thank you. :)   02.22.11 - 8:51am

Alvin Toro - Just 2 questions? 1) Has anybody told you that you are a lot better motivator than photographer? (and that's HUGE because you're ridiculously amazing with the camera) 2) Where can I find those boots? (My GF would love me forever) ;-)  02.22.11 - 8:35am
Lorna Roberts - I LOVE this! So beautiful and so inspiring! xx  02.22.11 - 8:29am
Angie Mack - J*, "You are fearfully and wonderfully made." Simply beautiful! You continue to inspire me.   02.22.11 - 8:28am
Tanya De Leeuw - Wonderful! I believe having professional goals is overrated in many ways. Getting through your life loving and being loved, happy, making others happy, without pain or hurting others ... now that's a goal!  02.22.11 - 8:21am
Christina S. - This is AWESOME!  02.22.11 - 8:21am
Jenna Danelle - Jasmine - I can not express how I truly needed this today!!! I have been struggling in a place so grey... with my Grandmothers passing, and being laid off, I took most of it as a sign to really dive into my photography, but it's been soooo hard. I have nothing to pay the bills, but I go to shoot after shoot to get my portfolio built to do this... and I started getting discouraged. Doubt was creeping in... but, I want to write my own story! So I will. Thank you.  02.22.11 - 8:14am
Paula - Love it! Can I get this in writing? Thank you!  02.22.11 - 8:07am

Amy Koh - Great short!...such inspiring   02.22.11 - 7:47am
Justine - Dude! This is so great! And something I am struggling to grasp a hold of... my own story... taking control of my own life... my own destiny. You are truly amazing! Thank you for always being real and honest. You rock  02.22.11 - 7:42am
Columbus GA Photographer - WOW!!! Completely awesome.... Glad you had a great turn out in Vegas. Would have loved to have been there.   02.22.11 - 7:34am
