One of the most interesting things about this beautiful senior is that she has been to a whopping twenty-seven countries! That was one of my favorite facts I learned about Maggie, but there was even more to be discovered about this darling girl. Maggie is a senior at Lakeview High School, where she’s incredibly active, participating in student government, the National Honor Society, Swim Club, and varsity level cross-country and track. Besides her dizzying schedule, she also is part of the Bicycle Advisory Board, and is the campaign manager for the House of Representatives Race. It is pretty hard to nail down just one of her many impressive accomplishments, but she shared, “My biggest accomplishment so far was winning the city triathlon twice, and winning the all-city cross country meet, and for two years in a row, making all-conference and all-region.” Of course her many successes are wonderful, but they’ve not come easily. This brave young lady has overcome dyslexia and ADD, and she says, “After my diagnosis in freshman year, I committed to working even harder in school. I took every AP English and history course and earned high marks. I even earned acceptance to the United States Air Force Academy Summer Seminar, a highly selective academic military program in Colorado Springs last summer. I truly saw my weakness as opportunities that turned into strengths”.
Maggie also draws strength and inspiration from her grandmother, who she says “inspires me because she was a refugee, turned immigrant, turned citizen. She has a huge influence in my life, and I’m so very thankful for her friendship.” We had such a great session together, and I enjoyed learning more about her big dreams and ideas…I know they will carry her into a very exceptional future. Of her senior session, she concluded, “I loved working with Celestina…we had loads of fun together, and her vision is very lovely. She would make any senior feel like an absolute star, and goes the extra mile to capture your personality in photos”. Thank you, Maggie, for giving me the honor of celebrating your senior year with you!
“RAVING FOR CELESTINA
having had the chance to work with photographers I can say that my experience with Celestina has truly been second to none. Celestina takes the nerves away when it comes to your senior shoot with her total pamper package that takes care of all your glam needs. Celestina was so accessible when I had questions about picking the perfect outfits. When it came to the shoot, you can really tell that Celestina knows her stuff. She makes the poses so easy and the setting is so comfortable. Most of all I’m thankful to Celestina for capturing my style and personality in timeless photos. I would recommend her a million times over!”
