I love photography and appreciate the processes involved. I’ve always had an appreciation for pictures and I felt it would be fun to be behind the scenes of the pictures that are on your Instagram and Facebook pages. Also, some of my friends have done it in the past and they said that it was fun so I figured I’d try it out.

Brenna M. Washington Township High School
I really enjoy singing and I also write sometimes and even draw. I just really enjoy creating things. Some of my personal accomplishments would be auditioning for an acapella group for the first time and making it in and auditioning for a solo in my school’s Pops Concert and getting that as well. Also my grades are something I take pride in!
I have seen previous pictures from Dennis Kelly Photography and I always thought that they come out so beautiful. I also really appreciate how different each picture is because they’re all unique to the person who’s in them. So based on that I already wanted to use Dennis Kelly Photography for my senior pictures. But when I saw there was a modeling team I figured it would be a fun experience and a great way to put myself out there and become more outgoing and confident.
I enjoy coloring because it’s something that can be very calming and satisfying. I like hanging out with my friends and just going on fun little adventures that sometimes are just decisions in the moment. I also like drawing, singing and watching videos or TV shows.
I would like to get involved in more things at school and keep my grades up and in a good spot. I also would like to become more outgoing and reach out to new people and meet new people easier. I also would like to become more confident in myself and genuinely see myself how other people see me and I think this experience will help me be able to achieve that goal.
