FILED IN: Photography, Seniors

I am currently a senior at Althoff Catholic High School. After I graduate, I plan to attend a four year university to major in Musical Theatre. As a theater kid, I have always had a love of dressing up and becoming a character. However, dressing up and being myself is a whole other story.

I have never been quite comfortable with having my picture taken. I always feel awkward and never know what to do. But it was different here. The whole team made me feel at ease. I felt a sense of confidence in myself that I have never had with photography. Whenever I felt myself tense up, Dawn would tell me to breathe and shake it out.

They are not only passionate about their shots but they care about everyone around them. IDancing is something I absolutely love, but more importantly I love how it can be brought into normal life. I love how I could just wear my tutu casually down the street. Also, I believe that I was born in the wrong generation. I was so ecstatic when I could live in this time period for half an hour.

I loved my senior photo shoot at DCCP! It is so nice to see the hard work and true beauty put into the work that is produced. 

This is Art.

I am so proud to be a part of the shoot. Thank you Dawn!

“My daughters senior photo session was magical. After getting a fabulous professional hair and makeup done we were off to St. Louis. Dawn found some off the beaten path type places for photos and it all seemed pretty simple until we saw the big reveal a few weeks later. The photos really were magic and she captured some amazing looks. They were so beautiful I had tears in my eyes!” -Valerie Beyersdorfer (Audrey’s Mom)
