Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

You got an up-close look at Ms. Jesse. She is lovely; her eyes show a quiet passion inside, and her mouth looks like it could at once turn up into a playful smile, or open to express some tidbit of wry humor.

@Viewfinder: You read her well, my friend.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

She Is GORGEOUS!!! you're daughter? a-on-her-way-to-be Celebrity Model? wow well done Stephen!

@Lorraine: Jesse is a valued friend and gifted model who has retired from the craft in order to pursue her passions in music and dance. Jesse is a deeply spiritual soul who has studied acupressure and healing arts. A stylized version of this portrait formed the home page of my 'Joy of Light' website for along while. I'm not overly superstitious - but Jesse visage has been part of my business card for as long as I've known her as 'she brings me luck'. Jesse (last I heard from her) lives in Minnesota and I miss her presence.

@JJ: Jesse is about as good in front of a camera as anyone I've ever seen - certainly the best I've ever worked with at working directly to the camera. A true natural.
