Such Great Senior: Megan

Meet 2015 Carmel High School Senior Megan!

How Megan describes herself: “I was born in California and moved to Indiana when I was only a year old. I attended St. Maria Goretti Catholic school from kindergarten to eighth grade, and that is where I met my best friend of 12 years, Amelia My graduating class at SMG was 39 students, and now my graduating class at Carmel will be 1198 students. The transition from a small, Catholic school to a huge, public school was actually very easy for me, and I have made amazing friends at Carmel. I have been taking dance classes since I was three years old, piano lessons for seven years, and I have been in choir since 7th grade. You could say I LOVE music. I am a very hard working, religious, passionate, and caring person, and I love to make people happy.”

Megan’s thoughts on being more than just a teenager: “I think I am “more than just a teenager” because of my goals for the future. I no longer just think of myself and what to wear tomorrow and how to impress a crush. I now think of how to help others, how to get good grades to get into college, and how to not be bothered by what others think of me. I have become much more independent and I am excited for my future. The word “teenager” often comes after the words “hormonal,” “lazy,” or “immature,” but I hope that I prove those adjectives wrong and be the best me I can possibly be.”

Leave Megan a comment to help her raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital.

Who are your role models and why?

My role models are my parents because they have lived a very happy and successful life. I hope to graduate from Purdue just like them and eventually start a family that I care about more than myself. They have such great personalities and are an amazing support system in my life.

Shake It Off Shoot

I love the words to this song. Everyone deals with trying to want to be someone else. Their life seems to look better, they post beautiful photos on Instagram, they always seem to be having fun and aren’t stressed. They probably don’t study for the AP class and still get an A, they have the latest clothes and get to eat out all the time…and take awesome photos of it. You feel like you’re not living up to “them.”

We see people and how they fit into categories that others have pinholed them. And then there are “haters” who see you going after what you believe in and they want to tear you down.

The term “shake it off” can mean different things to you, and I don’t know Taylor Swift’s true meaning. I think it speaks to shake off all the junk people want to use to keep you down. I did this shoot because I think it’s so important for you as teenagers to remember this as you encounter obstacles when you are full steam ahead after your passions. And that it’s okay to take time to have fun, in fact, it is vital to keeping your motivation.

Don’t let them get you down…don’t wallow in what negative things others say…don’t forget to sing loudly to a song because you can and you should! Truly be YOU, shake off all those haters and keep going with focus and drive!

Roller Girls

This was an absolute blast to photograph! Some of these girls sported their roller girl outfits in their senior parade at Heritage Christian and after seeing them I knew we had to do a photo shoot. There’s something about girls dressing up that gives them confidence and a killer attitude that totally showed through at the session. Girls, you rock.

1920s Shoot

2014 SGH Models, Kendra and Tianna were part of a 1920s stylized shoot. It was all about taking the 1920s idea and simplifying it so the focus was on the beautiful girls. The backgrounds are handmade and their amazing hair and makeup was done by Loni Wilson and Erica Foit.
