If you live in Oconomowoc and follow volleyball at all, you probably know (or at least recognize) Anna. She, along with her teammates, have been a force to be reckoned with the last three years. Check out Anna’s accomplishments below. It’s pretty amazing!

Anna is not only a crazy talented athlete, fantastic student and kind young woman, she is beautiful both inside and out. She has a strong faith and the most supportive parents alive to help keep her grounded. It’s so crazy to me that she is graduating high school already. I’ve known her family for as long as we’ve lived in Oconomowoc and have been photographing them for years. Watching families grow is one of my favorite things about being a professional photographer but it does pull on the heartstrings when these kids grow up and leave!
