BSP Class of 2017 Senior Model: Jane

Ocean Research College Academy (ORCA)

Describes her personality as: Daring, riven & passionate. She always puts forth her best effort whether it be challenging herself academically, working hard at her volunteer position at the Seattle Aquarium, or expressing herself through art & dance. Kindness is paramount to her, and that is why besides practicing everyday kindness, she also spend time volunteering with the Aquarium and work with Girl Scouts.

Describes her style as: She finds fashion intriguing, and primarily shops at Topshop because she loves their fusion of modern and classic looks. Her all time favorite fashion icon is Audrey Hepburn, but she also looks up to modern icons like Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

Loves high school because: Jane loves her unique school – ORCA – because she gets to do real hands-on undergraduate research surrounded by like-minded people. She loves the comradely that has formed throughout her school.

Looking forward to life after high school because: She wants to pursue a career as a woman in STEM. She is passionate about science and math, and has goals to earn her Ph.D. with a double major in chemistry and physics.

Fun fact: She technically started college when she was 15, so she will have her first degree by the time she turns 18!

Favorite thing about her shoot: “Unequivocally, my favorite thing about the photoshoot was  the location. I took a bit of a risk in choosing a unique location. The variety of scenery definitely made my photos personal. I also appreciate the honest and kind manner in which Brooks works with her clients in posing and outfit choices to create lovely portraits. Don’t worry about looking out of your element in you photos– Brooks will suggest poses and expressions to assure that you look great.”

Tips for other seniors: “I would recommend balancing exploring new realms with staying true to oneself. In the location and outfits I chose, I combined trendiness with self-expression. I chose a location that included what I love– nature, architecture, plants, and art.

To stay organized, I recommend organizing your accessories by outfit and using sandwich bags to keep everything separate.

Perhaps the most important tool for creating beautiful photos is self-love, no matter how you define it. Part of this experience is the opportunity to step back from the chaos of life and focus on finding yourself. Explore your definition of style. Honor your intuition. Radiant confidence is always photogenic.”

Outfit details: “I primarily shop at BP, Topshop, Urban Outfitters, and American Eagle. The right accessories are the perfect way to complete a look. Some of the crystals and charms I wore had more significance; they were passed down from my lovely mother or demonstrated an integral part of me (harmony with nature, philosophy of balance, etc).  I do think variety in every aspect of your outfits can help you make the most out of your photoshoot (though I will admit that I had a hard time not wearing Birkenstocks with every outfit).”

Tips for other seniors: “The best tip I could give is if you don’t have any idea of location or what to wear is to look at Brooks’ previous models and use their photos as inspiration. It’s good to ideas of what you like and don’t like for location, photos, poses, clothes and makeup.”
