Graduation | University of Illinois-Champaign | Central Illinois Senior Photographer

May 11, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

It was a great honor to be invited to the University of Illinois campus in Champaign to take photos of 3 young Illini graduates.  Two of these graduates are very near and dear to my heart.  They are twin sister graduates of North Boone High School in Poplar Grove.  Past students of my husband who is the principal of the HS.  I'm very impressed with these young ladies.  Their accomplishments will take them far in their lives.  The third young lady is a friend of their's that I just met at the photo shoot.  She is a lovely young lady that has chosen a path to make a difference.


Congratulations on your graduation from college, ladies!  Cheers to an exciting new direction in your lives!  I'm so proud of all of you!


Here's to Honest, too!  Honest is Cait's most loved and cherished service dog that is always by her side!  I loved that they all brought their pets to the photo shoot.  It was a fun day!
