Picture Perfect: Local photographer raises money for schools

Mokena-based photographer Jean Lachat is making a difference in her community, one photo at a time.

Her part-time photography business, Jean Lachat Photography, raised $1,300 though special photo sessions and donated the money entirely to the Mokena Educational Foundation. She held portrait sessions for 12 families over two days to raise the funds.

“I feel like photography was the thing I was meant to do and be in my life,” Lachat said.
