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!
Introducing the fun, outgoing, silly, super smart, easy-going, stunning, Maddi Phillips, Class of 2020 senior from Dunlap High School! This year, she is most looking forward to Friday Night Lights with all of her friends! She loves cheering on the Eagles in the cheering section. Maddi is also looking forward to all of her school dances, getting dressed up and dancing/singing with her friends. She is a busy girl.. participating in Cross Country and numerous clubs as well as Competite Dance at DDP. Maddi loves animals and works at Meadowbrook Vet Clinic in Peoria. She also loves baking, running, decorating, and of course, shopping! Her favorite class throughout high school has been Chemistry during her sophomore year. “I am good at match and science and I really enjoyed the numerous labs and the concepts we covered in the class. My favorite teacher along the way has been Mr. Hatch who teaches Spanish. He has an ability to teach us life lessons everyday and has a heart for making sure he helps his students become amazing people!” Maddi has great advice for incoming freshman… don’t get caught up in drama, love your absolute best life, go to as many football games as possible, make new friends, don’t procrastinate, and smile! It will only get better from here! After high school, Maddi plans on attending MIZZOU to study Biochemistry.
Maddi would describe her “perfect day” like this – “I would wake up at a decent time and not sleep in super late because then my whole day would be wasted.. After a morning run and I would go out for breakfast somewhere with friends followed by baking or shopping and then tanning by the pool. In the evening, I would get ready for a cute dinner with friends and then take some pics and finish with a great movie!”
Here are some of Maddi’s fun facts and favorites!
