Rochester Business Woman Launches Model Advisory Board For High School Girls

November 16, 2010 – Rochester, MI – Jocelyn Muirhead, artist and founder, Jocelyn M. Artistic Photography in downtown Rochester, is devoted to the community and is dedicated to mentoring young women.

Last spring, Jocelyn launched a Senior Model Advisory Board that included five high school girls from the Rochester area as a way to advise and prepare young women for business, leadership, and their college careers.

The five young women were interviewed and chosen based on their academic standing and community awareness as well as their desire to learn about business and marketing.

“I decided an advisory board was a great way to connect with some of the young girls who would be coming to my studio for senior portraits,” Jocelyn said.

She also saw this as an opportunity to share her knowledge and experience as a business owner and professional woman.

Jocelyn has long focused on the “Art of Life” and has made her mission, her passion, really, the documenting of family histories by creating heirloom portraiture.  Her unique vision and uncanny ability to capture, and set in time, emotion and individual personality has made her the

Photographer of choice of many families, business people, local and national celebrities, professional athletes, and politicians.

She has been selected to feature her work in numerous local and national publications including being chosen to photograph HOUR Magazine’s Portrait of Hope.  This was near and dear to Jocelyn’s heart and has led to a long-standing charitable relationship with the Boy’s Hope/Girl’s Hope of Michigan.

Jocelyn combines her talents with those of local make-up artists and stylists creating a true fashion model experience during High School Senior girls’ photography sessions.

The Advisory Board works to encourage young women to embrace their femininity and recognize their worth both personally, in school and in the workplace.  The young women, along with Jocelyn, develop high school senior marketing materials for Jocelyn M. Artistic Photography and have hosted their first annual Glam Ball as a finale for the board members leaving for college.

The board, which meets once per week, is currently seeking to fill two positions left empty by graduating members.

Jocelyn M. Artistic Photography is in downtown Rochester at 414 S. Main St., Ste. 105.  For more information about the Advisory Board or Jocelyn’s portraiture, call 248-652-3525 or visit
