Brian ’14 Geneva High School

Published by Jan under senior

I have known Brian’s mom FOREVER so it was nice to finally meet Brian! Brian’s session was held at Muirhead’s Farmhouse in rural Plato Center on Brian’s 18th birthday! What a better way to celebrate your birthday than to get your senior pictures done right? (Ok that might be a stretch for a senior guy so thanks Brian!)

During the session Brian’s mom made a joke and said ” You could be a Hollister model”. I asked if that was the last thing he wanted to be and Brian said “well- I work at Hollister and they call all their employees models so technically I guess I am a Hollister model”. Well from these pictures I think you’ll agree that he could be Hollisters PRINT model also!
