Each time I am dispatched to photograph the cover subject for Tradeshow Executive Magazine, I get to meet the most wonderful people – and Lori Jenks is no exception!
Lori is the Senior Vice President of Tradeshow Operations at Emerald Expositions. She lives in Orange County, so we selected the beautiful Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California as the location for our photoshoot.
When I spoke with Lori about her style and the intention for how she wanted to be featured in the April issue of Trandeshow Executive Magazine, she immediately told me that she didn’t want to do anything too corporate. No business suits, not executive poses, nothing stuffy. Amen to that I say!
She wanted to do a mix of shots on the hotel property and also at the beach, because in her free time she loves to be at the beach with her family.
Spending the afternoon with Lori was such a delight, we giggled a lot. I truly loved that Lori didn’t take herself too seriously, she was open to the process and she was so comfortable in her own skin. Lori was so fun and warm, I wanted to go home with her for dinner (she told me she was making pot pies for her husband and boys, so it I was tempted to follow her home and set a place for myself at her table!!)
