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 Lina Penney, Class of 2021 senior from Metamora Township High School! She was the first Class of ’21 senior to be photographed this year and I couldn’t have been happier to start with this sweet, beautiful girl! Lina admits she is quiet when she first meets someone, but once you get to know her, she is silly and talkative, and super fun to be around!! I agree with this 100%!!
After high school, Lina would love to attend the University of Arizona to major in Veterinarian Science.. she has wanted to be a Vet since since she was a little girl. Her favorite teacher is Mrs. Cooper who teaches American Lit. “She us super funny and laid back, but also cares that you do your work in her class and is successful. She cares deeply about all of her students and is genuinely such a good person. My favorite class was called Veterinarian Technology and I took it in my sophomore year. It was my favorite because it got me more educated on my career and I learned a lot!”
Lina’s favorite school events are a toss up between football games and basketball games. ” have cheered at all these games and there is so much excitement leading up to all the games. Everyone gets into the school spirit, whether it’s wearing our uniforms to school or dressing up for the theme. There is always a huge student section and it’s so fun to be involved in it.”
Outside of school football and basketball cheer, Lina has participated as a competitive cheerleader since she was 8 years old. She decided to take a year off to participate in basketball cheer. “I still volunteer at Titanium to help coach the cheer abilities team. I have coached them for 3 years now and I love it. I’m super proud of winning Summit last year with my team. It has been my dream for the longest time and I am so happy that it happened.”
