Matt ’11

Published by Jan under senior

Class of 2011.  Wow, that seems so strange to type but its that time of year already! 

Matt is my 1st senior from the class of 2011.  We had a fun session in his rural Elgin backyard.  They have gorgeous property with a stream in the back yard and huge trees all around.  But….the mosquitoes were ferocious!  I think that is what Matt will remember most about his senior session was getting eaten alive by all the mosquitoes even though his dad had the fogger going, and we resprayed ourselves 3 time with repellent!

In an effort to get to know my seniors better this year and share some of this information with you, I am having my seniors fill out a questionnaire before our session.  Here are Matt’s responses:

3 things people would be surprised to lear about you:

had a kidney transplant

I want to be a journalist

my last name is royalty

3 things you couldn’t live without:

video games



3 pet peeves:

my brother

video games left out


3 foods for a year, what would they be?

chicken pockets


hot dogs

If you won the lottery, what would you buy first?

Chicago Bulls

If I had 24 hours to live, I would…

go skydiving

Fav class or teacher in HS. Why?

Creative writing because of the freedom

What are your after graduation plans?

go to U of I for broadcast journalism

Would you rather:

X always lose

  never play

Would you rather:

X get caught singing in the car

get caught with your fly unzipped

Would you rather:

  be able to read every one’s mind

X always know the future

Here are a few of my favorites from Matt’s session.  Best of luck in your senior year!

Mark ’10

Published by Jan under senior

My last senior of 2010 (I think!) I’m very late in posting Mark’s session (sorry!) but I have to get this posted so I can start posting my 2011 seniors!

Mark is from a repeat family. His brother, Bill, was a 2009 graduate and I did his senior pictures also. Can’t wait to do their youngest sister’s pictures in another year!

Mark’s session was a lot of fun and we had good weather but the mosquitoes were out in force! Mark brought his dog Phoenix to the session. Although she is VERY intimidating looking she was an absolute sweetheart! She was very attentive and was so cute in all her pictures. He also brought the family car – a “rocket blue” Camero! What a fun session!

Matt’s session was held at Mount Saint Mary Park in St. Charles. It was held after graduation so he had his cap and gown that we were able to use for his portraits. Matt will be studying Engineering at University of Minnesota in the fall. Best of luck Matt!
