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 the incredible, sweet, beautiful, & love-able, Class of 2020 senior from Pekin Community High School, Briona Beckham!! We had the very best time together during her senior session. And the colors of the trees turning for fall were at their peak; making the most amazing backdrop for her super cute outfits that were absolutely perfect for fall!!
Briona would describe her personality as “quiet at first, but a fun person to be around once I get to know someone. I always try to be as kind and caring as I can possibly be. I love new experiences and making memories with the people I love most.”
After high school, she plans on attending ICC to pursue a career in the Medical Field. “I am looking forward to graduating because I feel like it’s a big accomplishment in my life. I am very proud to have kept all A’s in my classes for my first three years of high school, and I hope to continue the trend for my senior year. I’m proud of all the hard work and effort I’ve put forth in my schooling, and am excited to celebrate that at graduation.”
Briona’s favorite teacher is her Spanish teacher, Mrs. Hamilton. “She is so fun, kind, and willing to help you with anything. She desires to see you succeed and never thinks twice when you ask for her help. My favorite class is Anatomy and Physiology because I enjoy learning about the structures and functions of our bodies. I find it interesting to see how the body works on a daily basis.”
In school, Briona plays on the volleyball team. She also participates in volleyball outside of school through Illini Elite Volleyball Club. She works at Elevate Trampoline Park in EP, loves to travel and visit new places, and make memories with her family and friends!
Some of her favorite high school memories involve the school dances. “I love the chance to dress up and feel pretty. Plus, I have the opportunity to spend time with my friends and dance the night away. These are some of the best memories I’ve ever made in high school and I look forward to more!”
“My idea of the perfect day would be a warm, sunny day spent out on a boat in the middle of a lake. I would spend the whole day sitting out in the sun, swimming, tubing, and skiing. I would be with my friends and family making memories that I could carry with me forever.”
Three things on my bucket list: 1. Travel out of the country 2. Learn to play piano 3. Go on a cruise!
“My hero is my aunt for many reasons. She has been through a lot just within the last few years, but she continues to keep a smile on her face and on everyone’s around her. She never fails to make us laugh. Despite all that she has been through, works hard and provides for her family’s wants and needs. She’s always loving and supportive in the best way she can be. I look up to her and am proud to call her my aunt.”
