Senior Jake Haberman | DCCP Top Model Belleville East

FILED IN: Photography, Seniors

“My name’s Jake, and I’m a senior at Belleville East High School. My freshman and sophomore years I played on the tennis team; however, my junior and senior years I have devoted my time to the bass fishing team. My favorite class has been CEO class, learning from local entrepreneurs and working with like minded individuals. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with friends, fishing, and riding dirt bikes. After graduation I plan on studying business at a large university.”

“I walked in with zero ideas as to how I wanted my pictures to look. Dawn was able to brainstorm with us to come up with looks that worked for me, my style and personality. I enjoyed the laughter we have shared on the DCCP Top Model Team, as well as, how relaxed and easy my own shoot was with Dawn.”

“We have many images of my son over the years and for his senior photos we wanted something truly creative and memorable. As I researched photographers, I knew Dawn’s style was exactly what I had been searching for. Jake getting to know Dawn through the model team helped put him a little more at ease the day of the shoot.”¬† -Jake’s Parents

“When we began to watch the video I immediately stated to smile. I knew my senior photos were going to be everything we had hoped they would be.” -Jake

“When my husband and I sat down, and the video began to play we were both a bit emotional. She captured what we were hoping for; our little boy all grown up and ready to begin the next chapter of his life. My advice for other parents would be do you homework. Look at the work other photographers are putting out and if you are wanting something different, something unique just like your child, Dawn is a fantastic choice.” -Jake’s Parents

“My favorite part of my shoot was as we shot a photo of the Arch in background Dawn was able to capture a Union Pacific train passing on the tracks behind me. It was such a special photo for my dad since he works for Union Pacific.”
