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 Averie Reed, Class of 2021 senior from Dee-Mack High School. We had the best time photographing this beauty’s senior session and even jumped in Heritage Lake for some fun photos at the end because this is where she has created so many memories over the years! If only you could have seen us trying to figure out how to keep our clamshell float stay in place while snapping the shot while Averie posed on a soft moving object. oh the adventures we have!!
Averie would describe her personality as laid-back, bubbly, optimistic, and very clumsy, LOL! She plans on attending college after graduation from high school but she’s not sure where or what major quite yet. “I’m interested in the medical field as well as psychology and I ultimately want to attend the University of Missouri but I don’t know yet.”
Averie’s favorite teacher is her P.E. teacher, Mr. Jackson. “He is always their for his students and when we need to talk, he offers the best advice. My favorite class is English class, because it’s my favorite subject. I enjoy writing especially! I’ve heard people say you’re either a Math person or an English person, I’d say i’m definitely more of an English person!”
Her favorite school event is homecoming week. She loves seeing her hallways decorated, dressing up for theme week, Powderpuff football, and all of the competitions against the other classes. And of course, the dance. “I love getting all fancy and dancing with my friends.” Averie participates in track and National Honors Society. She also volunteers at TAPS Animal Shelter and the Special Olympics. Her hobbies include hanging out at the lake, especially in the summer time. “My best friend and I love kayaking, pontoon boating, and just floating out!”

Random Fun Facts:
My “perfect day” would be sleeping in late, then putting on a swim suit and heading straight to the beach. I would lay out under the sun, work on my tan, and float out on the waves with my family and friends all day long!
