High School Senior Spotlight
Tim Barron Photography, Leanna’s Reflections Photography, Teri Bay Photography and TD Images have joined together to bring awareness to the effects of bullying. After years of photographing High School kids and working with seniors that have low self-esteem we have realized that we need to make a difference. We have all noticed very beautiful kids that were afraid to have their pictures taken for fear of being made fun of. We see most of these kids during their last year of school, and have realized that the low self-esteem we see has come from years of being bullied singled out and made fun of. We have formed together to bring awareness to bullying and ask the community to help us out. All four artists’ styles are different yet unique in the fact that we work really hard to capture high school seniors for who they are. It is during this time we have come to realize that as long as these kids are being bullied they will have scars that even Photoshop can’t fix. On January 3rd of 2014 we will be holding our first annual Senior Spotlight event at a location to be announced in the Roseburg area. We will be showcasing some of our High School models and their uniqueness that they bring in a photo shootout with all four artists. These seniors are willing to stand up for who they are and show others that it is not only ok to stand up for yourself but it is also a lot of fun. We are putting together some great prizes for these kids along with a college scholarship. We are asking for the community to stand with us and bring much needed awareness to bullying and the scars that it leaves behind. We are looking for some help finding a DJ, props, clothing store sponsor for the models, unique locations, High School related prizes, Judges for the event and anything you can think of that will make this a great event. This is a free event with all prizes going to the High School Seniors for having the courage to take a stand. If you are willing to help in anyway, please contact John Bay @ 541-784-5933 or any member of the Senior Spotlight team.
