Briana is a strong young lady. She is the kind of person who makes you feel better about yourself, because she carries her own light so beautifully...she lights up any room, and is always looking for ways to help others. These are just some of the reasons why I loved working with such a sweet high schooler. She attends Arroyo Grande High School, where she is active in competitive cheerleading. "Some of my favorite high school memories include the school dances, and of course, being part of the cheer team", she explained, "I hope my friends would describe me as someone who was caring and outgoing." In any spare time she has, Briana enjoys volunteering at a local dance studio, and helping out with community events.
"I chose Jill for my senior photos because I loved the vibe and style of her photos. I also thought she was really helpful in the process", continued Briana. I was so grateful for her words, because I strive to be present for every step in the senior photo process...it can be confusing and overwhelming and filled with hidden costs. I try hard to make sure that is not the experience I provide, and I am glad she had such a great time. After graduation, she plans to join the military. What an admirable career choice, and she adds, "Ever since I was a little girl, I planned on joining because all of my uncles (and my dad) were in the military. I am passionate about protecting our country, and I'm happy to be joining up in the Army so I can help. I have chosen Human Resources, because after I’m done with the military, I can go into studying to be a Mutual Fund Manager." We did this shoot in the cute little area of Los Olivos in the Santa Ynez Valley, one of my favorite places because of the way the light and the trees look so lovely!
