Conversations with the Inspiring Jolie Rodriguez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jolie Rodriguez.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Hi there, I am Jolie Rodriguez, a family and senior photographer in Denver, Colorado. My passion for photography came to be when as a young mother of 4 my husband died suddenly. We were lost and looking for something to make us whole again. Little did I know that booking our family pictures would put us on the path of healing. The pictures from that day showed me that we were still a family, we were strong and we could move forward. I still look at those pictures today and remember our unbreakable bond. My experience has kindled a passion within me for helping families create beautiful family portraits to remember their journey and strengthen their family.

I have been photographing families and seniors for ten years and find joy in my work each and every day. I believe my experiences have strengthened me and put me on a path to find my passion and purpose.

Has it been a smooth road?
A smooth road?…well not so much. There were many times I questioned what I was doing. Was I good enough? Was I making progress? Was I just having fun? Should I be doing something different? Having friends and family along the way for support was vital for me. I had self-doubt more than once. But, I had a goal to turn my passion into a business and learned so much about myself along the way. And I am still learning. I never stop learning. Making one goal and inserting little goals to achieve along the way really helped me see my progress and helped me keep going. My advice for young women just starting their journey is to believe in yourself, continue to work every day to improve your craft and don’t forget to see the victories along the way and celebrate them. You can do it!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into Jolie Rodriguez Photography story. Tell us more about the business.
I am a Professional Family and Portrait photographer specializing in natural light photography. I believe my passion for family photography runs deep from my personal experiences and realization of the power of photography. I know photography can change lives. It helps us capture our memories in meaningful ways that we can go back to in times of happiness and sorrow. It allows us to see where we’ve come and give us hope for where we are going. When we see ourselves in photos with our loved ones on the walls of our home, it creates a home of love, unity, and strength. It reminds us that we are in this together.

It would be great to hear about any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve used and would recommend to others.
