Hear what past HJ Interns had to say about their Internship Experience: "My time with Hello Jude has opened my eyes to see what it takes to run a small business with grace, kindness, and intentionality to every person that we come in contact with. Bailey runs her business with her heart and the crazy dreaming mind she has. If you’re considering interning with her, DO IT. You will learn how to work as a team, how good delegation gets stuff done, how to value each client as a person, how to work behind a camera to capture the beauty that’s right in front of you, and also get to build relationships with incredible women on the team. On a personal note, Hello Jude has been such an encouragement to me that you really can do anything you set your mind to. Bailey is such a determined person and that determination can’t help, but rub off on you as you work together. She not only teaches you how to get the job done, but isn’t afraid to build a great relationship with you; it’s not just about the tasks! This internship can only make you better! " -Kristen "This internship has by far been one of the best experiences I have had with an internship. As an intern, I met a bunch of amazing, talented girls who each brought something special to the Hello Jude Team. Not only did I learn a whole bunch about photography, but I learned just what it takes to run a small business. This internship taught me social media management, how to use a camera in manual mode and much more! When you have a boss as cool as Bailey, it doesn't even feel like a internship. It was definitely hard to leave such a great team!" -Morgan "As an intern of Hello Jude Photography, I reached so many heights that I never expected to get to. At least not this soon. Bailey, the heart behind the business, is the most organized and talented photographer I know! She has poured her heart into Hello Jude and crafted it into a one of a kind experience for every one of her clients. The amount of beauty that Bailey walks with is incredible to witness. I am so thankful she chose me as one of her interns for this season in my life and this season in her career. I was able to meet 5 young ladies throughout this internship with such amazing hearts. I will forever cherish the memories we made and the knowledge I've learned from this experience. I am always thankful for the opportunity that Bailey has given me and the ability to leave my mark on her business. "
