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 2021 senior, Kaily Whittles from East Peoria High School!
Kaily has so many awesome attributes.. funny, outgoing, beautiful, sassy, caring, love-able, and she is going to be a fabulous nurse some day! Her goal is to follow her momma’s footsteps and go into nursing school after high school. She has the cutest little sister, named Tommy who is absolutely adorable and the way that Tommy looks up to her big sister melts my heart!
Like many of her peers, starting her senior year looks a little different this year, but the activities that she participates in include Link Crew, Yearbook, and Cheerleading. Outside of school, she babysits and spends a lot of her time with her friends and boyfriend. She loves laying out and tanning in the summer and playing Madden on the Xbox.
Kaily’s favorite teacher is her History teacher, Mr. Green because, “he tells it like it is. My favorite class is Human Anatomy because I enjoy learning about how the human body works.”
I love her advice to new freshman: Always be yourself and don’t change to try and “fit in”
A moment I am most proud of “I passed my accuplacer test so i can take my dual credit classes this year.”
My “perfect day” would be described like this: On my perfect day I would eat a plain waffle for breakfast. Next, I would shower and get ready. Then i would either go to the park with my sister and have a picnic and play or go to chick-fil-a. then i would go home hangout with friends and if i lived on the beach, go and take pictures at sunset.”
Three things on my bucket list include traveling the world, skydiving, and becoming a nurse!
Food and Family:
I have lot’s of favorite bands and singers and I love a little bit of every genre of music. My faves include Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, Brett Young, Lil Wayne, Cardi B, Rod Wave, Ed Sheeran, Selena Gomez, Lil Zay Osama, and Lorde.
My hero is my mom. She proves to me that you can do anything you set your mind to. She is positive and we love listening to Taylor Swift together in the car. My dad is very generous and he always makes good food.
