Xinya is a senior girl at Mountainside, the Beaverton School District’s newest high school.

She claims to be shy and introverted until she gets to know someone, but she warmed right up when it came time to photograph her senior portraits at Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District’s Jenkin’s Estate.

Mountainside High School Senior Girl - Denm in Garden

Xinya enjoys wearing dresses and heels for special occasions. She also is an archer and wanted to be photographed with her archery bow and arrow that was custom made by a member of her family. I thought that combining her red dress and bow and arrow would present the perfect mix of confidence and class for her high school senior pictures.

In casual situations, though, she likes to be comfortable. Her typical go-to clothes include leggings and a nice fitting shirt or sweater. So we made sure to include some “comfy” clothing into her senior portrait session as well.

She also wanted to include a stethoscope, as she hopes to enter the medical field after college.

Xinya has many hobbies and interests, including photography! She enjoys taking pictures of pets and plants. And also loves reading, writing poetry, playing the piano, and hanging out with friends and family.

She also enjoys pop music and musical theater. Her favorite song is “always changing, but if I had to choose one song, I’d pick Mamma Mia (but only the ABBA version, not the movie versions).”

Xinya considers herself fortunate, having never broken a bone or been stung by a bee. (I was glad we were able to continue that trend throughout her senior portrait session!)

After her senior portrait session, I helped Xinya and her parents custom design beautiful pieces of photographic art, including a gorgeous album to commemorate her senior year. We also designed a unique grouping of three canvas prints that will grace the walls of her parent’s home while Xinya is off at college.
