Aww Shucks…It’s Brittany!

Brittany!Well, it’s time to hop on the Otis & James Caravan of SuperFantastic Senior Pictosnaps!  And we’re getting things back in motion again with the one & only Brittany!  Even though I’m sure that there are more Brittany’s in this world, the only one that matters right now is the one that is above these silly words – and that’s because…well…I say so, but also because there was this day, and there was this time and there was a Brittany, and the rest was magic!

She came to the o&j and brightened up our lives for one brief moment in time, and then as soon as she was here she was gone again.  But even though we could be saddened by this, we aren’t – because we’ll always have the memory of that time, and the pictures (duh – it’s what we do.)

But enough of all this.  Let us now give MuchLove to Brittany for being so wonderful to work with, and to all my good peeps out there in Land of Blog getting themselves all dressed up for this hallowed eve – Enjoy!


Another Friday, Another Andrew.

Andrew!I’m just kidding, man.  It’s not like we only save up on Andrew’s for Friday or anything like that.  We’ve been over this before, I’m just throwing anything at the wall when it comes time for a title.  Otherwise the website would automatically call it ‘andrew-6’ and that wouldn’t really be all that cool.  So, Another Friday, Another Andrew it is!

But srizllisllissly, we think this pic is pretty dang cool, and we also think that the reason it is pretty dang cool has more to do with Andrew than it has to do with us.  He stopped by the o&j on a day that wasn’t all that long ago for his seniorpictosnaps and not only was it all good, is was…uhh…it was better than all good?  Whatever.  He was great.  That’s the bottom line.

And because he was so great to work with, we need to send MuchLove his direction for letting us spend at little bit of the quality time together so we could take sweetsnaps like the one above.  And we also need to tell all you good peeps out there in Blogville to – Enjoy!


It’s Thursday. It’s Dylan.

Dylan!Not gonna lie.  Just pretty much phoning it in when it comes to putting a title to these posts.  There’s no need for me to pretend that there is some long and drawn out process for coming up with one of them – and I know I’m not fooling anyone.  So I’ll just get it of of my chest and feel good about it.  So in this case, I’m just stating the obvious.  It’s Thursday.  And this is Dylan!

The Thursday part is inconsequential, really.  For all that I know you are reading this on a Tuesday.  But as it’s being published it’s happening on a Thursday.  The part that really matters is that it is Dylan, in fact that’s all that matters!  See now, there was a day, and there was a time and there was a Dylan and there was a photographer…well, you know the rest.

Pictographic goodness was made, and that again is really all that matters.  Dylan was awesome to work with (duh…just take a look above this gibberish that I am currently typing) and we would like to send him MuchLove for choosing the o to the j to be small part of his senior year.  And to all my other good peeps out there in Blogville just doin’ what they gotta do to make it through another day – Enjoy!

PS –

Dylan is a great name.  I especially dig it because me & Bob Dylan…we’ve been through a lot together.  Here’s an extra treat for you.


Man Oh Man…It’s Jasmine!

Jasmine!Seriously.  Do I really have to type in any words down here?  Like…just take a look at the pic above and you will understand pretty much everything that you need to know about our time with Jasmine.  Totally.  Wonderful.  Not lying.  Truth.  Straight up.

There was this time, and there was this place, and there was a Senior (Jasmine) and there was a photographer (Jamie) and all of it got mixed up together in order to create something absolutely wonderful – and the results will testify to the fact that our goal was accomplished.  And it wasn’t because of anything we did – it was all this lovely lady!

But enough with all of these words.  It’s time for us to give MuchLove to Jasmine for being so wonderful to work with, and it’s time to tell all you good peeps out there in Blogville t0 – Enjoy!


Joy! It’s Sydney!

Sydney!It’s the start of another week here at the o&j, the Otis & James Center for the Study of Fun and Things Pertaining To Fun (O&JCFTSOFATPTF), another chance to get things right, another opportunity to seize the day and do our best to make it perfect (that used to be a motto of mine, but then I think it made me crazy, so I’ve dropped that motto) – and we start of this new week of new beginnings with the oh-so-lovely Sydney!

If you’ve made it down to these words and haven’t just been hung up on how wonderful the samplesnap is above said words, then you know that our time with Sydney was absolutely wonderful!  How can you tell this from a picture, you ask?  Easy.  Just look at how lovely she is and you will see the truth!

But I ramble on (sing that song) and it’s time for us to give MuchLove to Sydney for choosing the o&j to be a part of her senior year, and to all my peeps out there in Land of Blog wondering what happened to Summer – Enjoy!


TGIF // It’s Karly!


You wanted more?  You got more.  Your Friday is just getting better and better, and this time the reason for all of this betterment (it’s a word, look it up) is the one & only, the talented & lovely Karly!

Now dig on this, for I’m about to tell you a story.  And it’s a story about a day in the life of the o to the j.  The Otis James.  The o&j.  The Otis & James.  Whatever you want to call us, we’re still here baby and we’re still rockin’ in the free world.  Now, on this day that I was talking about, we were visited by Karly, and even though we were all like ‘oh man, does this mean we have to do work now?’ at first, a soon as we started doin’ work we were all like ‘this isn’t work at all – this is freaking awesome.  Because she is awesome.’  And that’s the story that I just laid down.  Dig.

But enough of all this crazy talk, it’s time for us to send MuchLove to Karly for being so completely awesome to work with, and it’s time for me to tell all you happy peeps out there in Blogville just hoping that you won’t wind up in jail this weekend to – Enjoy!

TGIF // It’s Taylor!


Even though this Friday may be cold, rainy & windy, all of that can be forgotten by taking a look at the samplesnap above these silly ol’ words – you will magically be transported to a world where the sun is always shining, and lovely people like the one & only Taylor brighten up everyone’s day!

See?  You just took a look at the pic and you’re already feeling better about life in general!  It’s like we could put the pharmaceutical industry out of business just with happy pictures!  But we’re not here to change any industries, we’re here to gaze upon the goodness that is Taylor, and to thank her for taking time out of her busy life and sharing a couple of minutes with us so we could have this happy image!

So now, we give thanks.  We send Taylor MuchLove for stopping by FunCenter and for letting us be just a small part of her senior year, and to all my other peeps out there in Land of Blog wishing for just a little more summer – Enjoy!

TGIF // It’s Hailey!


First up on this celebration of all things wonderful & Friday related, or for that matter really just wonderful is the ever-lovely Hailey!  Seriously, or as the kidz like to say, SRSLY, could there be any better way to start your day than with a samplesnap from this shoot?  I think not, my dear friends.  My peeps.  My babies.  Whatever you want to be called.  And if you can think of a better way to start your day, I don’t even want to hear about it because I’ve already made up my mind and the answer is Hailey.  So there.  Conflict solved, compliments of your benevolent dictator of all things blog.

Now, as for Hailey – as you can tell our time with her was totally and completely awesome in every way possible, and that’s all because of her.  Thank goodness we just happened to have a photo studio/camera/computer/photographer just sitting around when she strolled into the doors of the FunCenter on that lovely day, because if we didn’t have that stuff 1)What the heck would we do for a living and 2)There would have been no shoot.  But that wasn’t the case, and there was a shoot, and it was awesome.

But enough words.  Let’s give MuchLove to Hailey for being so awesome, and to all my peeps out there in Land of Blog movin’ & groovin’ on whatever it is they’re movin’ & groovin’ on – Enjoy!

Good morning!  And as the old saying goes, Thank God It’s Friday – and it is especially well illustrated in the picture above (and btw, we did not take this picture – in fact I was unable to find an accreditation for the image because I would gladly give it, so all I’m going to say is that to whomever took this pic, keep on keepin’ on my friend, because you’ve won the internet.)

Back to the point.  It’s Friday.  Normally we don’t post all that much on the website on this day that ends the week because we figure that you’re sick of the internet by this point and the last thing you want to do is look at anything other than the clock that will let you know that it’s time to leave school/work.  But today we’re going to hit you over the head with some totally awesome goodness.

So, sit back, relax, and be sure to check in throughout the day because we’re going to not only be putting up some lovely seniors, but we’re also going to have a special offer that will only be for the quickest of the quick!  And it’s a good offer too.  So, TGIF my babies!
