Pretty + Powerful | Northern Illinois Senior Photographer


Her sweet + genuine smile?might?hide her hidden superpower!

Mary has such a kind heart and makes a genuine connection with so many around her. but for those who may not know her well,?or see her academic side much; they may not know that under that sweet smile is a mathematician mind that is sure to impress!


I’ve witnessed Mary in the math classroom back in her middle school days. she volunteered her answers and?did her in-class?assignments?with ease.

I truly envy that!!!

Fast-forward to her last months of high school and I get excited thinking about all the possibilities she’ll have with not only the understanding of all the elements of math, but she loves it ~ when it comes to superpowers that’s one I wish I had.


Seniors today have so many different opportunities?and it’s exciting to see what paths they take leaving high school. Mary said she wants to pursue something in math with the collages she’s pursuing and i can’t wait to?hear where so goes with her talents!

Senior_Mary_NorthernIllinois_0035I ?keep repeating myself like a broken record, but I really do love hearing the hopes + plans seniors have after high school and Mary seems to have some amazing plans that I can’t wait to check back and see where it leads her beautiful self.

She is an exceptional girl inside and out who is going to turn heads when she moves out into the world!


and just on the surface I’m sure she turns heads with that long + silky hair {envy #2 for me} ????

she’s got it all…

kind heart

wicked math smarts

a natural beauty that shines bright!

High School Seniors are at an AMAZING time in their life and i’m lucky enough to capture some of those last moments ~
