FAQs ABOUT THE GARDENIA PROJECT
If I send you a request will I automatically be included in the project?
No. I receive many inquiries about the project. I read and respond personally to each one of them! I so appreciate your getting in touch! However, not everyone will get chosen. I will let you know of my decision in a timely manner.
Is there a cost?
No, this is a personal project for me. It is a labor of love and I want to make sure that every woman that wants to can have the chance to tell her story with me. If anyone would like to make a donation to the costs they would be welcomed. If you want to have your hair and makeup done for our portrait session the investment is $100. That is an option, but not essential to the portrait part of the session.
Will my full name be made public?
No. All last names are withheld unless the person gives me permission to use it. Having said that, this project will include your portrait and your voice on radio. While it won’t be searchable if someone puts your first and last name in Google, if you don’t want people locally to know your story it would be best not to be part of the project. Please make sure you are safe to share your story.
Do I have to have my portrait taken?
Yes. This is the project that I created and my vision for the project was to have it be a visual and audio storytelling piece. If you aren’t comfortable with that then this may not be the best fit for you.
Do I have to be on the podcast?
Yes. Again the project is all about sharing your story and this was the medium that I chose. If you are interested in having just your portraits taken then please head over to my website: Jen Dean Photo and check out the Radiance sessions for women. Many women have found them to be transformative and healing in the way they see themselves!
