I am so excited to introduce you to Class of 2013 Spokesmodel Ashley!
Ashley is a senior at Grayslake North High School and is all about dance! I was super impressed with her dance skills as well. Our initial session took us to downtown Grayslake, and then we moved over to a local forest preserve to capture Ashley in a more rural setting. This is what I love about senior sessions….so much variety!
Are you looking for a unique senior experience? Contact me today! Session dates are limited before it gets too cold.
Now, to learn a bit more about Ashley….smart, talented, beautiful!
What has been your proudest moment in high school so far?
My proudest moment of high school was being inducted into National Honors Society. I am so proud to represent Grayslake North and to give back to the community that I live in. I can’t wait until graduation to walk in gold ropes that represent the service and being an NHS member.
Do you have a favorite quote?
My favorite quote is “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.” It shows that we can’t dwell on the past or dwell about what could happen but we have to live in the present and be grateful for it.
What is your dream job?
First, I would like to become a Fashion Merchandiser or an IT web developer. I want to build up my career and save for my future dream job which is to own my own dance studio and teach dance classes. Attached to my studio I would like to have a dance store so that students can purchase the items they need right by the studio. I would love to travel to competitions and to put on a performance annually with my students.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I would travel to Spain because I have been studying Spanish for 4 years now and would like to continue to develop in this language. I would love to actually experience the cultural aspects that we have studied in Spanish class. In Spain I would mostly want to go to Sevilla and to Barcelona and I would want to go to a bull fight.
What are your plans after high school?
After high school I want to go to a University somewhere that is close to home. I am currently looking at Illinois State University and Whitewater University. I am still undecided about exactly what I want to study but I have been looking into Fashion Merchandising and Information Systems for web development. I also plan on getting a minor in dance education.
Tell me about a favorite memory from attending Grayslake North High School.
There have been so many amazing memories that I have had in my time at high school but the ones I will remember most are the football games and homecoming. North Superfans have always been crazy and loud and I will always remember painting my body and standing in the stands with all of my friends screaming for my team. Also I will never forget homecoming and how much fun I had dancing with my date. I will never forget the vibe in the gym and how everyone was there to have fun.
What did you like most about doing your senior portraits with Britt Anderson Seniors?
I loved EVERYTHING about doing my portraits with Britt. She is so nice and really tries to understand you and what you like. She makes the photos so natural and not staged at all. I had an amazing session and I was so comfortable while doing them. I loved the most that every picture turned out to be so natural and real.
