It was a gorgeous summer day that we had Kaeli's session.
Kaeli had such a beautiful summer tan as she had been working at the Tinley Park Pool as a lifeguard all summer. When I met Kaeli her smile reminded me of a young Cover Girl model of the 1980's, like Cheryl Tiegs. She was just as sweet as she was beautiful.
Kaeli was so easy to work with and was willing to try on all the fun hats I brought too! She looked adorable in everything she wore!
Kaeli, there is no doubt with all of the wonderful things you have accomplished already in life that you will do great things!
A few words from Kaeli's mom...
Kaeli has grown into an amazing young woman and is more then ready to embark on a new chapter of her life. Kaeli successfully carries a full caseload of honors classes at Victor Andrew High School, where she also competes on the girls Varsity Tennis Team and works as a student Tutor to help younger students with their studies. She has already accumulated over 120 hours of community service and is involved in several school organizations. Kaeli has been a hostess at a local family owned restaurant for the past year and was a Lifeguard at the Tinley Park Pool this past summer. Her tan definitely speaks for itself.
Kaeli always wanted to be a doctor and was selected to spend a couple of weeks at Northwestern University last year to participate in an NSLC (National Student Leadership Conference) program where she was immersed in the medical profession. She has also spent countless hours volunteering at Palos Hospital. Although she is not sure of the exact direction of her future, she knows that it will be centered around helping others. She is currently exploring most of the Big Ten Universities and cannot wait to start working towards her future.
Kaeli enjoys traveling. In addition to snow skiing in Telluride, Colorado and collecting shells on the beaches of Sanibel Island, Florida, she has explored the rain forests of Belize, snorkeled in Jamaica, played in the ocean waves in Mexico and relaxed in the sun in the Bahamas. She also enjoys all sorts of music, from sitting at a quiet table appreciating Kris Kristofferson to front row at Guns N Roses. However, country music seems to be her soft spot.
Kaeli is my best friend, my heart and soul and I could not be more proud of her. I am going to miss her terribly when she leaves for school but I know she is more then ready to spread her wings. And I am incredibly lucky to watch her fly.
