Class of 2017 Senior: Lia

Kamiak High School

Loves high school because: “I don’t think that I really have favorite part of high school.  I love learning about new things, and I enjoy the social aspect of it as well.  If I had to chose one thing, I would have to choose singing in the choir.  In our choir, it is not only a community, but we are family, and as soon as you walk through the door, you know and feel like you belong there.  I also love singing in the Starry Knights Barbershop choir and the MidKnights Barbershop.  This is my second, and last year singing bass in the Starry Knights, and I have enjoyed every second of it. ”

Activities: “I play rec indoor and outdoor soccer, and have for many years.  I also love to play basketball, and used to play on a rec team.  Now, I just play with my sister and or neighbors with the hoop in our driveway.  I took ballet, jazz, contemporary, and tap at Allegro for a few years before I had to stop because of my crazy high school schedule.  I have taken piano lessons for 10 years, which is crazy to think about because it doesn’t seem like that long.  I also took voice lessons last year, and hope to continue them this year as well!”

In her free time you can find her: “Sitting at my piano playing all genres of songs; from classical to pop, musical theatre, and anything I can sight read.  Adele is my favorite to play!”

Describes her style as: “I have no idea what my personal style is!  I really like comfortable clothes; jeans and t-shirts.”

Looking forward to life after high school because: “I’m so excited for college!  I don’t know what I want to major in, but there are so many options!  I’m excited to learn about the different options, and hopefully find one that really fits as something I want to do for the next chapter of my life!”

A note for Lia: It’s been so fun to get to know you over the past few years through dance, and now senior portraits! I hope that you love your pictures, and that you feel they are the true representation of you as you were right before beginning your senior year. Enjoy these last few days of senior year! It will fly by!

Another gorgeous Class of 2018 senior model! Read on to learn more about Brooke, her session and her tips for other seniors…

BSP Class of 2018 Senior Model: Brooke

Lake Stevens High School – Lake Stevens, WA

Describes her personality as: “…outgoing, adventurous, energetic, a people lover, determined, hard working, fun to be around. I love making people smile, and I’m very dependable.”
In her free time you’ll likely find her:  “in my kitchen listening to music dancing, or hanging out with my friends or family.”
Her style: “I would describe my style as trendy, yet simple. I wear everything from heels and cute dresses, to yoga pants and a hoodie!”
Loves high school because: “What I love most about high school is, being able to be around great people, and creating new memories everyday. “
Life after high school: “What I look forward to most about life after high school is, being able to go out into the world as an adult and begin a new life for myself.”
A fun fact about Brooke:  ” I’ve wanted to become a veterinarian my entire life, and plan on reaching that life long dream after high school.”
Her favorite thing about her shoot: “My favorite thing about the shoot was that you were willing to hear my ideas during the shoot. You were willing to put up with me wanting to take a picture with a peacock to make me happy.”
Tips for other seniors: “…just be you and don’t be afraid to share your ideas, or wear things that express who you are.”
Outfit details: “The outfits I chose were things that I felt confident in, and expressed who I am. Wear things that make you feel beautiful and confident. Don’t try and be someone your not, if you normally wear a t-shirt and jeans, then wear that.”
A special thank you to Angela Rodriguez for Brooke’s gorgeous makeup.

liz: class of 2018 senior model {seattle senior pictures}

seattle_senior_pictures_7I’m so excited to introduce my Class of 2018 Senior Model team to you all! I’ve just started shooting with them, and let me just say, if Liz is any indication of how this year will go, it’s going to be FANTASTIC. Read on to learn more about Liz, her session and her tips for other seniors…

BSP Class of 2018 Senior Model: Liz

H. M. Jackson High School – Mill Creek, WA

Describes her personality as: “I’d like to think of myself as a bubbly, and upbeat person. I am very committed to the things that I set my mind to. I love to make people laugh and joke around as much as possible while still getting work done both on time and to a t.”
In her free time you’ll likely find her:  “Out on a jog, exploring around to discover new places (especially places where I can get the best looking food), watching movies, or watching Buzzfeed videos like I often do.”
Her style: “My style is relatively casual but I always am looking to expand my wardrobe with interesting and eye catching pieces. I love edgy and trendy pieces mixed with classic and casual pieces as well. I find myself gravitating towards even bohemian looking pieces sometimes, with lots of layering of jewelry, flowy, comfortable pieces with neutral, earthy tones on occasion as well.”
Loves high school because: “What I love most about high school is the moments that I know I won’t get to experience once I graduate. I am a cheerleader at Jackson and so I really cherish the nights I get to spend under the lights or on the court cheering on the team. I love being able to spend weekend nights surrounded by my best friends and not having to worry about much, besides the paper I have due the next day… that I evidently have not started.”
Life after high school: “I am most looking forward to being completely independent after high school. I’m excited to be out on my own in the world, while that sounds scary, I’m excited to be able to make my own way in the world and truly understand what it means to be an adult. I plan to attend a four year university (hopefully New York University) and then build my future and career from there.”
A fun fact about Liz: “I can sing almost any Justin Bieber or One Direction song from heart, while it might not be too wonderful sounding. But we all went through that fan girl stage (at least I hope it wasn’t just me).”
Her favorite thing about her shoot: “My favorite thing about the shoot was how easy and natural everything felt. I was really able to be myself and I felt like that came out in my pictures which was amazing. And the weather took a break from pouring down rain too so that helped LOL.”
Tips for other seniors: “One tip I have would be pack outfits that make you feel the most comfortable. I tried to pick outfits that I felt kind of edgy and trendy in but also still like myself and how I would dress regularly.”
Outfit details: “The outfits I chose were mainly from H&M (as my mom would try to say to be hip “ballin on a budget”). I really enjoyed wearing a black monochromatic outfit with varied textures to mix it up a bit but still wear something that I would have normally!”
A special thank you to Angela Rodriguez for Liz’s gorgeous makeup.

Class of 2017 Senior: Mary

Kamiak High School

Loves high school because of: “the wonderful people! I have made so many new friends. My schoolmates are so energetic and passionate about many things. Also, the teachers at Kamiak are super kind and supportive.”

Activities: Mary has been a member of the Kamiak Dance Team since her freshman year. She says Dance Team has changed her whole world and that being on the Dulcineas is like having a second family with 29 sassy and loving sisters! She is also involved in many other clubs like National Honors Society, Key Club, Kamiak Model United Nations, and Kamiak Leadership!

In her free time you can find her: “spending time with my family and friends, dancing, studying, watching movies, cooking and eating, reading, and traveling! Every Saturday and Sunday I volunteer at the Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett. I love helping out at the Museum’s Spanish music class for toddlers and babies!”

Describes her style as: “very girly and sweet… I love pink, flowers, dresses, and high heels, but I also love more comfy things like my overalls, converse high tops, and rompers.”

Looking forward to life after high school because: she plans to attend college and earn my doctorate. She’d like to either be a pediatric nurse or a human rights lawyer. One of her biggest dreams is to serve on the Supreme Court! She also hopes to travel, see many parts of the world and meet many different people!

A note for Mary: I just loved shooting your senior portraits at your grandparents’ farm! What an amazing surprise to find out that you grandmother was once my ballet teacher! It’s like it was meant to be. Mary, I love your positive energy, your curiosity and your laugh. You were just so fun to work with!
