Outdoor Senior Pictures in Castle Rock, Colorado

Meet the incredible Mia!  She’s a senior at Legend High School with an interest in crime stories and the hopes of becoming a kindergarten teacher.  She chose the perfect location that suits her well, and those fall colors… wow!

Here’s more about Mia!

Tell me about your love for crime stories and wanting to be a kindergarten teacher.

It might seem weird that I like both of these because they are opposites but I think it is because I’m very much a why person. I love figuring out why crimes happen and what influences the criminal to commit the crimes rather than just who. I think education has a large influence on who and why people end up being who they are, so if I can influence and help somebody’s life for the better I think I would be really awesome. I think it would also be really cool to keep the tradition as my mom and my maternal great-grandma were both teachers.

Do you have any thoughts on what you’d like to do after you graduate?

Since I want to be a teacher, I’m planning on going to college for a degree in early childhood education or elementary special education. I also want to try to keep the job I have at Starbucks wherever I end up because I think it would be really fun to from classes to making coffee.

What are some of your favorite childhood memories? 

Honesty, just probably listening to music with my dad on car rides. Ever since I was little he made me love music and all different types of music ranging from 70s rock to 90s alt and even folk.

Tell me one thing you hope to accomplish in your senior year.  

I hope to make as many great memories and have as much fun with friends as possible before the year ends. 

If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?

This one is easy; stop caring what others think of you and spend less time on your phone. I think I spent so long worrying about what others thought of me that I wasn’t really who I wanted to be until a little while ago. I’ve realized the most important thing is to make yourself happy with who you are rather than trying to be perfect for others. I also think I lost a lot of happy moments because I was on my phone and everything was sorta just a blur so I would tell my younger self to take time to enjoy my surroundings and the little things which is super cliche but those moments are more important than they might seem. 

What a joy to have you in front of my camera and to get to know you, Mia.  Your pictures are gorgeous and I hope your senior year is equally amazing.
