I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
Meet Class of 2019 senior. Anna Bour from Washington Community High School! She is the ultimate fashionista mixed with a whole lot of sweetness, blue eyes, and a crazy beautiful smile!
Anna would describe herself as shy at first but once you get to know her, “I’m super crazy! (In a good way of course!). She loves to have fun and whenever someone see her, she is saying something funny or laughing at something random. She plans on attending ISU after graduation to major in Fashion Design & Merchandising. But when she was a little girl, she wanted to be a vet! One of her proudest moments is ” when I was high jumping in 7/8th grade at Morton High School for sectionals. Having the anxiety of being able whether or not to clear the bar for state requirements. Then shortly after, clearing! It was the most memorable moment of my life. I will never forget it. I was so proud of myself.”
This year she is mostly looking forward to being accepted into ISU. Anna loves the campus and it’s far enough away from home but still close enough to make a little weekend trip to visit family and friends. Her favorite HS teacher was during her junior year… her English teacher, Mrs. Leischeidt. “She is the sweetest thing. I never used to enjoy English class as much as others, but this year she really brought the enjoy into it. She really helped me understand assignments that were given that I didn’t know how to do or understand.” The school events she most looks forward to is Friday night football games. “Having our school get together and cheer on our team is so fun. I love all the themes the student section leaders pick out. Every student standing in the student section is screaming/cheering as loud as they can which is awesome!” Something that most people don’t know about Anna is that she loves to read. ” Morgan Matson is my current favorite author. I’ve only read one book by her which is called, Save The Date. It’s an awesome book. Another thing I absolutely love is fashion. I have a huuuuge passion for it. My favorite boutique to shop at is Apricot Lane (of course). Being able to pick random pieces of clothing and describing your personality is amazing.” Advice to incoming freshman: “Cherish every moment you have in high school. Before you know it, you’re going to be a Senior and just able to graduate college. The 4 years fly by so quickly.”
“A perfect day for me would have to consist of being on a beach somewhere warm and far far away with a very intense sun! (lol, got to get your tan on all day everyday). My boyfriend, Cadin would of course have to be there. We are inseparable. Laying on a beach not worrying able anything in the world… ahh amazing.”
Three things on her bucket list include: 1. Traveling the world with the love of her life 2. Taking a road trip to Florida with a group of girls from college. 3. Open up her own boutique
