One of my favorites parts of doing senior photos is the pre-shoot Design Consultation. I love to sit down with a senior and talk about their vision for their photos, and what messages, look, style, interests, hobbies tell their story. I am the first to say my best shoot ideas are not mine, they come from my seniors. Veronica was/is a creative force like none other! She thinks way out of the box, room, continent, globe and galaxy. It was very inspiring to collaborate with her. That led us to an extremely unique evening session at Scovill Zoo’s electronic sculpture; we toured St. Teresa HS theatre department to play with the props and costume; we met at a 50s inspired diner for some ice cream; and we took a walk down memory lane in the wooded area that surrounds her family home. It was so much fun!!! But that’s just Veronica. She seems to put the same energy and extra emphasis in everything she does. The list of some of her accomplishments include 8th in the state in Cross Country, three year qualifier for state in track (and I’m sure it would have been four years), lead in a St Teresa production of High School Musical, top tier academically of her class and an Illinois State Scholar. Veronica participated in multiple clubs including NHS, Drama Club, Student Council, and International Club. I could go on and on, but you get the point. She’s a big dreamer and a big achiever, and it’s only appropriate that she will be going the Big Apple. Veronica will be attending NYU – New York University – in the Liberal Studies Core Curriculum. Obviously from info. above you know she has broad interests, so I can’t wait to see where her liberal studies will take her. So jealous! Good luck Veronica!!
