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 Olivia Smith, Class of 2020 senior from Washington Community High School! I can’t help but smile when thinking about Ms. Olivia because she is as funny as she is beautiful as she’s a whole lot of both. She always keeps us laughing with her quick wit!
Olivia has had the opportunity to participate in many of our themed sessions since we started the Class of 2020 Shelby Senior program in March. So, we thought her senior spotlight here on the blog was a fabulous time to show off how some of those creative sessions and how fun it is to capture Olivia and all of our other seniors throughout the year!
After high school, Olivia plans on attending ICC for 2 years before transferring to a University to major in Genetics. She participates in Fitness Club, International Club, NHS, Art Club, Spanish Club, and Pep Club!! Outside of school, Olivia works at Mosbach Chiropractic Clinics and she loves it. Her bosses, Dr. Jim and his wife, Michelle “are the sweetest people I have ever met and I’m so blessed to be able to work with them!”
Her favorite teacher is Mrs. Banzhoff who happens to be her art teacher. “She is super spunky and creatiive. Not only does she give great creative advice for projects, but she is also a very genuine caring person who cares for her students. I also love photography and being able to capture certain points in time and then look back on them!” Olivia’s hobbies include anything creative and she especially loves to paint.
“My perfect day consists of sleeping in on a rainy day with all my dogs by my side. Maybe watch some scary movies or paint something new!”
