“I love these pictures because all of them show genuine emotion. You can take a million beautiful pictures that will blow everyone away, but the ones that capture a moment are priceless. I love being able to snap a picture of the moments that students don’t know are being recorded, because they are so happy when they see that we were able to freeze that candid moment in time.”

“I really love being a yearbook photographer because I get to see a lot of what goes on that I wouldn’t normally see. Because of yearbook, I’ve gone to football games, choir competitions, and our color run. I’ve watched the behind the scenes of so many things most students never get to experience.”

I view my role as someone who captures these memories for my peers, so that when they look back decades from now, they have all these memories from the pictures that we took. Taking pictures for our yearbook has sparked my passion for photography and made me realize how much I love capturing these moments for others to view.”
