Hayley’s Senior Portrait Session | Joshua Tree Photographer

What do you do when your mom is a photographer? You are a little extra and fly out of state for senior photos in a few of your favorite spots. We knew we wanted two distinct looks for Hayley’s senior session: a desert vibe and a beach look. Take a peek at our amazing Joshua Tree Senior Portrait Session and learn more about Hayley and her goals! I love to interview my seniors so that readers can learn a little bit more about the amazing young humans behind the lens. They have the coolest aspirations!

What’s next after high school?

I want to go to college in Boston and pursue a Master’s Degree in Business. I hope to either be a Marketing Manager of a company I’m passionate about and/or start my own nonprofit to help mothers struggling in poverty.

Favorite extracurricular that you were involved in during high school?

Probably my own Park Clean Up Club that I started. I really enjoyed going out with my club members and friends to beautify parks around Austin.

Favorite subject?

Practicum of Entrepreneurship because I enjoy working with a team and collaborating on business ideas and then taking the steps to turn our business into something tangible.

Cafeteria food or packed lunch?

Definitely packed lunch. Our cafeteria has zero vegetarian options aside from pasta salad, so it’s a no.

Share a favorite high school memory.

Being able to do school in my bed during Covid. It didn’t get old.

What are three things you’re most looking forward to about college?

Making new friends, being in a different city, and getting a fresh start to life. It’s exciting to meet new people who don’t know anything about me.
