Finally catching up on blogging and I’m so excited to share Olivia’s session! I absolutely loved working with Olivia. She has such a sweet spirit and is incredibly talented too! I got to see her preform at a benefit night for Girl Up, and her voice is just heavenly!! If you’re interested in her music, you should definitely check out her Youtube Channel.
Name: Olivia L
High School: OES
Three words to describe yourself: creative, curious, a little bit geeky
What is your favorite memory from high school?
Launching bottle rockets off the roof of my school’s science building, and then getting into an epic hose fight with my friends.
What’s something you’ve overcome or accomplished during high school that you’re proud of?
I think that one of my greatest accomplishments has been singing a solo with the Oregon Symphony for a performance of video game music at the Arlene Schnitzer concert hall. It was probably the scariest thing I have ever done, especially since the performers were projected on a huge screen so there was a camera right in front of me, but it was a really amazing experience and a lot of fun.
What was the best part about having your senior photos taken?
Having my hair and makeup done by somebody who knows what they’re doing (because I definitely don’t), and then getting to explore Howell Territorial Park.
What advice would you give yourself as a freshman?
Don’t be afraid to talk to new people and try new things — high school is a lot more fun when you stop being shy and start taking risks!
Where are you heading next? I’ll be headed to Brown University next year, probably as a computer science major, and I’m really excited to be able to meet cool people and live somewhere completely new.
Thanks for sharing Olivia! Can’t wait to hear about your next adventure! xoxo
