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!
When I think about Riley, I can’t help but smile!! She is one of my most outgoing Shelby Seniors and isn’t afraid to shine!! She is authentic, sweet, (the first one to give me a hug), caring, peppy, and absolutely gorgeous!!
After high school, Riley plans on attending SIUE and wants to major in Law. When she was a little girl, she thought she might be a doctor. In school, she participates in cheer and softball, and her hobbies include taking naps, watching Netflix, shopping, and hanging out with her BFF, Hailey! In fact, she would describe her “perfect day” as going to the beach, shipping, and eating (with Hailey). *Note- having these two besties on my Shelby Senior team has been the BEST!!
A moment that Riley is most proud of is when she was working on a tumbling pass for a long time. She finally did it… felt very proud of her accomplishment, and then broke her knee doing it! Oops!
Three things on her bucket list include 1. Sky diving 2. Scuba Diving, and 3. Traveling the world
“My hero is my mom because she is the strongest person I know and does everything with a smile and has put up with me annoying her everyday. The best thing about my mom is how strong she is we as a family have been through A LOT and she has not dropped the ball once she has kept us all together and has even brought two more littles into our life that didn’t have someone to love them. She’s the most amazing mom a girl could have!”
Here are some of Riley’s Fun Facts and Favorites:
