Leah | Class of 2017 | West St. Paul Senior Photographer

In random order: Soccer goalkeeper. Captain. Singer. Master wardrobe stylist. (well, ok that last one was my bias recognition for her…but it is true!) Fantastic smile. Follower of Christ. Loves music. 2017 Monda Goette Photography Senior Model Team Member. Genuine. Enjoys spending time with her favorite people. These are just a few things to describe 2017 Senior, and soon-to-be-grad, Leah from St. Croix Lutheran High School!


Since I have known Leah, her sparkling personality has stood out to me. Her sense of fashion and style have been stellar, too! Always put together, always with a smile. And her hair was always flawless! I’ve not seen her have a “bad hair day” yet!


Take a look at images from her senior session with me from the early fall! (See? I wasn't lying when I said she is Master of Style and Wardrobe!)


Everyone dreams about their senior year being the best for their athletic performances. Leah was no different. Unfortunately, Leah's senior year as soccer goalkeeper were cut short when she suffered an injury mid season. But that did not stop this Crusader and team captain from showing support and leadership to her teammates until the very end!


Moving Forward: Leah will be attending South Dakota State University to study Mass Communication and Journalism.

As mentioned, Leah was one of my 2017 Senior Model Team members this year, and it was truly a joy to work without her throughout her senior year! She always brought a positive vibe to our shoots with her genuine smile and laughter. You can see some of the previous model team shoots here: 2017 Destination Shoot, Winter Skating Shoot, Carnival Fun, and Team USA.

Leah, it has been so much fun to have you on my model team and to feature you in front of my lens to tell your story! You will go on to do great things, I can’t wait to see what is in store for you! THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU! Best wishes to you in all you do. Don't sweat the small stuff, tune in to my "snyahhhpp chyat" once in a while and always, always be true to yourself.
