October 11th

Levy Moroshan Photography: Just wrapped on a shoot with Amy J Roloff at the Aurora Airport! Some of you might recognize the plane! Hair and makeup courtesy of Chantel Pomeroy and assisting me was Filon Moroshan! I'll be getting some of those images up in a few days! They are soooo cool!

Amy Roloff: Levy the shoot was a whole lot of fun. Can't wait to see the pics. The whole theme was awesome. Different, you know like me. Thats what I wanted. You are great to work with.

Amy Roloff: Chantel, thanks for being there too. You made me still like my hair :) Thanks for making me look better then I could. Good time. My Jeremy would have loved to be there since he is into photography - good eye - and loves your car too Levy.

Levy Moroshan Photography: Thanks everyone! Chantel did a fantastic job! Got the look I was going for. Amy, it was my pleasure to be able and put this shoot together! I'm thrilled you loved the idea and just let us go our thing! :) I've already got some ideas for the next shoot! I'll email you! :)


October 26th:

Levy Moroshan Photography: It was a fantastic shoot! Plus I've got one more with her. Kaja, I did a shoot for the shows producer a couple months ago and Amy saw the images. She then contacted me to set up a couple shoots for her that look different then all the stuff she'd had done before. Next one's really going to pop!

Amy Roloff: I love working with you Levy. Thanks so much. You make me look good. Can't wait til we do it again! :)

Great pics! Amy looks fabulous. I love the colors in the last one at night.

Nancy said...

Amy looks nice, I guess, but I don't like this Amy Roloff.

I like the Amy Roloff when the show began. The real person. The person that seemed like it would be cool to have a cup of coffee with. A person with substance and not fake Hollywood glamor. That's why I started watching their show. I don't usually watch Hollywood crap because it is all so superficial.

Even here Amy acknowledges the work of the hair and make up team. It's not Amy. It's professionals doing work. Some people might be impressed, but I prefer real people and natural beauty.

Just my opinion.

David said...

Again, so much for Amy not wanting to be a celebrity, it sure looks like Amy wants to be a full fledged celebrity.

Although to be fair, that was more Matt shoving that lie down people's throats for the life span of Little People Big World.

Lisa said...

I know LM. He is talented.

Kay said...

Amy looks lovely.

Greg said...

If the Golden Boy Jer is so talented, why didn't Amy go to him?

Shadow said...

They're nice pics of Amy, but the setting is a bit...weird. Amy in evening clothes plopped on a plane? Amy in pilot gear?

Are these publicity photos for her new career as a public speaker? Are they supposed to represent her free, adventurous spirit? Kinda reminds me of that old commercial - "Why are foreign films so...foreign?" They just don't make sense.

Maybe they're just fun personal photos, like senior portraits? Maybe Amy has *always* wanted to be a pilot, you know, like since she was 4! LOL...

I know!!! They're publicity photos for a new show Matt has dreamed up - Little Pilots in a Big Sky!

Jocelynn said...

Shadow, from the comments, I get the impression that Amy wanted pictures as publicity to use for a career (the photographer's comment that Amy saw the work he did for her producer and wanted him to take pictures of her because it was different than other pictures she has done.)

Brandon said...

"Maybe they're just fun personal photos, like senior portraits? Maybe Amy has *always* wanted to be a pilot, you know, like since she was 4! LOL..."

So that's where Jeremy gets it from!!! ;)

Melissa said...

I think the same thing Nancy, people who get their makeup and hair done up are just being fake. No body needs to dress up and try to look their best. Why do brides or prom students or anyone have their makeup done and their hair styled by a professional, it is just a waste of money. Don't they own a comb, and didn't their mom teach them how to use makeup? I'm a t-shirt and sweats girl myself no matter what the occasion.

Laura said...

What a stupid comment Greg. Any opportunity to be negative and you jump on it. Jeremy has an interest in photography, but he is just learning. I am sure he takes many photo of the family, but he is not a professional with professional equipment. Why is it such a big deal for this woman to have had her photo taken by a professional photographer? People do it every day. It is amazing that you all read so much BS into it?

Brandon said...

Nancy, I've always thought the same thing. What's the point in trying to fool people into looking like something you're not? It's very fake. Is it Christian to hope to impress people material beauty? You get up and look like a totally different person? It's like a Halloween costume.

Btw, I'll proudly say my girlfriend is not a girl that spends time on hair or make up.

I remember Amy's quote from the first when Molly did that back to school modeling thing. Amy said she hoped her kids wouldn't get into modeling because she wanted them to do something with more substance. Now look at Amy.

Rita said...

I think Amy looks beautiful in these pictures

Rap541 said...

"What a stupid comment Greg. Any opportunity to be negative and you jump on it. Jeremy has an interest in photography, but he is just learning."

While I see your point Laura, I must say, that runs quite the contrary to how we all need to kiss Jeremy's ass over how incredibly talented and gifted he is at photography.

So do we have to give Jeremy talent props constantly or be deemed a hater? Because if we do have to "Bless Jeremy! Bless Jeremy's incredible photographic talent!" then Greg raises a valid point, why isn't Amy utilizing WonderJer's incredible talent?

Melissa said...

Brandon, you are so right. NO good Christian should ever try to look beautiful. Beauty and wearing makeup is satan's influence. I am so proud that you are dating a homely woman and that you love her even if she is not beautiful. I am sure that God is disappointed in Amy for looking so pretty.

Jackie said...

I think Amy has lost her focus. All the Roloffs have. Instead of focusing on good, they have been enticed by the appeal of hollywood and the almighty dollar.

Maggie said...

Anyone else think it's kind of funny that Peggy Roloff used to give speeches where she essentially mocked Oprah for appearing on some magazine cover about beauty? She held up about 10 different magazines like "People" that were about how to look beautiful. She then veered into how it was wrong and why people should be reading the Bible instead.

Now Amy is doing these kind of glamorous photoshoots and her son's family has about 15 cars and trucks.

The Roloffs should stop preaching to the public and focus on their only family that don't follow their own words.

Hannah said...

Jeremy is just another rich spoiled kid with an expensive camera. The Roloffs all use high-end Nikon cameras. Jeremy's 13 year old little brother has taken similar quality photos with the same camera.

If you understand the Roloff dynamic and Jeremy, that's how it is. Jeremy has his dad, mom, grandparents and friends telling him how talented he is. Jeremy believes it because that's the way his whole life has been. He's surrounded by people that are constantly telling him how awesome he is and how he's incredibly talented no matter what it is that he's doing.

When Amy wants to do something important for her career, she knows better than to turn to Jeremy. You can go to any photography account on Flickr to find people that are more talented than Jeremy.

Julie said...

Why are some of you dissing Jeremy's photography skills? Have you ever seen photos he has taken? I haven't but I sure would like to. Maybe you can point me in the right direction so I may have an opinion as well.

Veronica said...

I have a thing or two to say about Jeremy and photography. Here is what I know to explain my feelings. I have people that are very close to me that are friends of Jeremy. They have actually been seen on the show.

From what I know of the story, a while ago, they asked Jeremy to take photographs of them to mark a very special occasion that was very important to them. They asked Jeremy if he would take pictures of them. He said yes without hesitation. They thought it was a good match. They wanted special pictures taken. They have a friend (Jeremy) that thinks he's a budding photographer. They would get their pictures, Jeremy would get valuable experience. They took the pictures. They thought it went well. They anxiously waited for the pictures.

It was over a month and they still didn't get their pictures. When they would politely ask Jeremy for them, he would give them the runaround. Apparently he's more concerned with partying and "having fun" than fulfilling a commitment he made. I know they were very disappointed at the way Jeremy treated them. I was irate at the disrespect he showed towards people I care about.

If that's how Jeremy treats friends with his "photography" I can only imagine the horrors of him being a professional!!! Have Jeremy take your senior pictures. He might get back to you by the time you're graduating college if you're lucky!

As far as I'm concerned, Jeremy is a lazy flake. As soon as he decides something is no longer fun for him, he has no drive. He has no respect for people or integrity as far as I'm concerned.

Personally I will never recommend that anybody turn to Jeremy for photography needs.

If anyone wants to associate with Jeremy as far as photography goes both as customer, a partner or an employer, they better be darned star struck and be satisfied at that, because I think they'll be bitterly disappointed with his lack of professionalism and character as well as his lazy work habits from what I know.

I guess his mom had more sense than the people I care about. She must have known if she let Jeremy handle something important to her she would still be waiting for them a year from now! Hopefully one day Jeremy will grow up, start taking life more seriously, but he sure has a long way to go.

Shadow said...

"Why are some of you dissing Jeremy's photography skills? Have you ever seen photos he has taken? **I haven't but I sure would like to.** Maybe you can point me in the right direction so I may have an opinion as well."

Julie, that's kind of the point. NO ONE has seen any of these "fabulous" photographic skills of Jeremy's. We're just supposed to believe they exist because Matt said so. Given that all the other "fabulous" skills Jeremy supposedly possesses (soccer, car repair, carpentry, etc.) have been pretty much exposed as being average, a lot of people *would* like to see the proof before we hand him a Pulitzer for photography. And in the manner of "the boy who cried wolf," we've learned that if Matt is saying it, it's probably not true...

Christine said...

I'd never trust Jeremy with anything important. Not surprised about Veronica's story.

Rap541 said...

Julie - I was shown a few of Jeremy's pictures in the hopes of enlightening me after I doubted Jeremy's amazing talent. I personally don't claim to be an expert but the ones I saw were nice but not *wow*.

I base my view on his talent based on what he's doing and accomplishing in photography. Is he taking classes? Is he taking classes at an *art school* or at a community college that doesn't have any portfolio requirements? Has he entered any photography contests? Has he won any? Is he applying for apprenticeships with local photographers? Is he doing anything other than taking pretty pictures and getting praised by his family?

The photos I saw? Nice enough but not significantly better than say, what my sister does.

George said...

I am glad to see others believe as I do. Children should never be praised or encouraged to express themselves artistically. It is a waste of good brain power. I consider Matt and Amy bad parents for bragging about Jeremy’s photographic skills. I hear parents brag about their kids and it always turns out that the kids not that great or that I know someone who is better. Parents shouldn’t have high hopes for their kids, they should let them know that their life is going to be mediocre and that there is no shame in it

Rap541 said...

Oh there's nothing wrong with high hopes, George. But lets stop acting like a 20 year old high school graduate is a little boy.


If Jeremy *wants* to work in the field of photography, he's not going to hear "every thing you do ever is perfect and beautiful and by dint of being *you*, you're the best!"

Its not a judgement of his supposed artistic talent to ask if his photographic ambitions have accomplished anything other than his friends and family saying "great shot, jer!"

He could be a great painter, for example, but if he does nothing with it but piddle around and never show his work to anyone who isn't obligated to say "thats awesome Jer!", he's not going to really use any talent he has.

George said...

Your right Rap, I think hobbies are a waste of time too. If you can't be the best at something you should not spend time piddling around with it. No one should receive or give praise for such wasteful endeavors. Even if you have an interest or show some talent, it should be discouraged. Unless you can produce money at it or if at least the majority of the public agrees that you are talented, you should just not pursue such things.

George said...

My son Thomas wanted to be a painter, and his mom and I shot that down at every turn. He may have had some talent, but he would have spent his whole life living in a dream world. He is 35 years old now and works for a house painting company in the midwest and his wife works as a telephone gal for a credit card company. They don't live in a big fancy house or go on vacations and they never will. They are perfectly happy living a standard life. Struggles are a natural thing, that is what builds character, not all that high falutin praise. Parents praise their kids too much these days and it gives them big ideas for themselves. Even grown kids need a reality check now and again.

Julie said...

Rap, How did you get to see Jeremy's photos? Do you live nearby? Are you sure they were Jeremy's? What were they? Were they pictures of people or things?

Greg said...

George, get with it.

Jeremy has a history of getting his ass kissed by the world. His parents constant gushing about Jeremy's incredible talent is a wee bit ridiculous. There is never anything to back it up.

A soccer star? Uh, no. Is he even playing in any recreational adult league? I don't think so.

A carpentry whiz? Uh, no.

A mechanical genius? Uh, no. Unless paying a BMW shop qualifies as mechanical abilities.

A pilot? Uh, no, Matt used to talk about Jeremy pursuing flight school.

Now everybody is told Jeremy is photography prodigy. Do you see a trend? He's a spoiled rich kid with an expensive camera with a huge ego because his family spent his life treating him like he's a God at whatever he wants to do.

Jeremy says he's intereted in something. His parents tell him he's the best ever and brag to the world about Jeremy's wonderful ability at whatever his interest of the day might be.

You'll notice people don't talk about Zach's lack of knowledge with cars? Maybe that's because Zach and Matt aren't bragging to the world about what a mechanical genius Zach will be.

I've actually read a lot of positive comments, on here specifically, from Rap too, about Zach getting the job at the indoor soccer place. Because at least he's doing something he's interested in and doesn't have Daddy or TLC as his boss holding his hand.

Meanwhile, Jeremy is the golden boy whose many supposed talents are always being bragged about but we're all supposed to take the Roloffs word for it despite there being no evidence of it other than Jeremy, Matt and Amy propping him up as a whiz kid (or man now...) in every area.

Shadow said...

"George" is jes' joshin' y'all...

Rod said...

Are you kidding me?! Jeremy is SO awesome, he could kick start his "modeling" career by taking his own photos with his "professional quality" photo skills. Not only that, but being a pilot that would make Chuck Yeager look like a bumbling nugget, why he could fly himself to all his shoot locations!!!

And if you believe that..........

George said...

Greg, I do agree. That is what I have been saying. Parents need to be realistic with their kids. Sometimes that may be downright cruel, but it’s for their own good. Matt and Amy should have told Jeremy that he wasn’t good enough, then he wouldn’t have gone on to waste his time trying out all those stupid hobbies and sports. His parents should have told him that they would not invest any time or money into it unless Jeremy could prove that he would be the best at it, and could make a living at it and that he would not just drop it if he discovered he didn’t want to do it for the rest of his life. I think schools are the culprit, with their silly woodshop, mechanics, photography classes and afterschool sports. Reading, writing and arithmetic is all that’s needed, none of that extra fluff that just wastes our kid’s minds. We need to return to the days when you picked a profession and stuck to it until retirement. I did it that way and it was good enough for me.

"They're nice pics of Amy, but the setting is a bit...weird. Amy in evening clothes plopped on a plane?"

Shadow - Check out Levy's website and thumb through the photos. There's a pretty sensual picture of a woman on a plane wing. We'll assume Amy said "now do me that way" and so, he did. That's the only explanation I can come up with for these incredibly awful photos that do not convey one thing about Amy or her personality. Unless they're going to use these pictures instead of scarecrows on the farm, I wouldn't think they've got much value.

Peter A said...

Don't hold your breath Julie, Rap never saw any of Jeremy's photos.

Rap541 said...

Oh Pete - how would you know?

I certainly don't mind some healthy skepticism - I personally am only 90 percent certain they are geniune... I simply don't trust people online.

Thats why I don't insist anyone believe *me* and why I point to more substancial things to hang the label "Jeremy is incredibly talented" on. For example - has he done gallery shows? He's got an uncle with contacts in the art community and he has money... Has he done any shows? Has he entered any contests? Has he taken a photography course at something other than a community college?

Or does he show them to just his family and friends and thats about it?

Julie - No, I don't live anywhere near the Roloffs. One of the pictures was of Jeremy, with his back to the camera looking at a water fall. A few were Matt and Jake in Hawaii. One of the barn in winter - I rather liked that one, and some landscape pictures of what I assume was Hawaii and Alps. Nice enough, but nothing that stood out as incredible.
