It's that time of year again: Senior Spotlight Season!
Every year we recognize MGP Seniors and their accomplishments over their last year of high school!
First up is none other than Miss. Dylan from Montezuma High School!
I first met Dylan when she tagged along with Katie (an MGP Senior Model) for a BFF shoot! I am sure our confusion on the correct date for this shoot really set the tone and made Dylan instantly fall in love with the business! The shoot went off without a hitch though and it really was a lot of fun! I'll throw in a few images from that shoot so you can enjoy them, too!
Dylan's senior session was way back in August of 2020; right before school opened back up. The colors were vibrant, the air was warm (ok really it was hot) and Dylan was a champ through it all! We had a great mix of country/urban and sports for her session, and I really love how some of her personality really shows in these!
But before we get to her images, let's read a little more about Dylan from her questionnaire!
Me: "What are your major accomplishments your senior year? What are you most proud of?"
Dylan: "The year is only a little over half way over and there are still so many great things that have happened. Some major accomplishments for me this year have been being on homecoming court and crowned queen, being runner up conference champions in volleyball and conference champions in basketball. Over all I’m super proud of how my school and friends have adapted to make this year seem more normal even through all the hard times."
Me: "I know the year isn't quite over just yet; do you have any big plans to finish out the year? Is there something you are looking forward to before graduation?"
Dylan: "I don’t have any major plans to finish out the year. I’m just hoping that we get to have the rest of basketball season, prom and graduation and normal as possible."
Me: "Were you involved in any sports or extra curricular activities? If yes, please list them below."
Dylan: "I have been involved in volleyball, basketball, track, student council, FFA, and National Honor Society."
Me: "What's your plan for this summer?"
Dylan: "This summer I plan to work and earn money for college in the fall. I also plan on spending time with my friends and family."
Me: "What does the future have in store for you? Have you already picked your school? If so, what major? (Or explain whatever future plans you have below."
Dylan: "Next year I plan on going to Simpson College and to play basketball. I’m not sure in my major and will most likely be going in undecided."
Me: "Do you have any advice for your underclassmen?"
Dylan: "My advice for the underclassmen would be to be thankful for every moment. High school really does go faster than you think and after all it is only 4 years of your life. High school can bring some of the best moments and you never know what can be taken away from you. Never talk anything for granted and live life to the fullest."
Me: "What are your absolute favorite images/sets from your senior session?"
Dylan: "I absolutely loved all of my pictures but some of my favorites would have to be in my jeans with the black see-though cardigan."
And now let's see some of all of our favorite images:
