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 Claire Whiting, Class of 2019 senior from Pekin Community High School!! She is a kind-hearted, energetic, sweet & sassy, ridiculously funny, and ohhhhh sooooo pretty senior who I can’t get enough of… her spirit is completely contagious!
Claire would describe her personality as light and funny. “I am energetic, always busy and involved. I like to encourage people and always be around friends.” She has decided where she wants to attend college yet after graduation but has known since she was a little girl that she wanted to be an Elementary Education teacher. Claire loves Pekin High but she is looking forward to graduation and “I’m ready to grow more!” Mr. Holman has been her favorite teacher because he is always so excited to teach math and his positive attitude helps everyone learn and get involved. She also loves the school dances, football games and cheering in the student section is so fun! Claire is on the swim/dive team, involved with church and she enjoys shopping and going out to eat. A moments she is most proud of is learning to dive in just three practices! Advice to freshman: “My advice to incoming freshman is everything happens for a reason and working hard will pay off in the end! (Also, junior year is awful but you will survive, I promise!”
She would describe her “perfect day” as sleeping in and waking up to dogs, spending the day shopping or at Tanner’s apple orchard and then ending it with my friends eating dinner and lots of bread pudding for dessert. YUM!
