We had the good fortune of connecting with Jordan Baeckman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jordan, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I live by the motto if it scares you the hell out of you,then do it. That is part of how I achieved to get my business to where it is today. From taking the risk of starting, to raising my prices every year, and now my biggest risk to date, my studio. With reach risk you take, whether it is in life, or in your career, it comes with growth and/or an learning experience.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
J.T Photography LLC started as a small hobby but my dreams became goals. I focus on making connections with my clients. My clients are not just money to me. They become part of the JTP family. I want families to trust me in capturing their family just the way they are. I want couples to trust that I will capture THEIR love, not just some hallmark love. I want seniors to have the time of their life capturing this chapter in life, and I want my boudoir clients to leave my studio glowing and confident! I got to where I am today because I believe in community over competition. Having the opportunity to be mentored by my favorite local photographer and shoot weddings with her for 2 years. Also, taking risks even if they scare me! Challenges come with growth and success, just getting over hurdles one at a time. I have learned so much during this time, but the most important things are to speak kindly of others, support others in the industry, and help others when you can.
