Two St. Louis area high school seniors are currently blowing up on the internet. The pair combined to create a very cool senior picture collection that caught the attention of Taco Bell earlier today.
Brittany Creech will be entering her senior year this year at Ritenour High School in St. Louis. She’s a model represented by Mother Model Management as well as a Taco Bell lover. Creech, whose favorite meal at the T-Bell consists of a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and a Pepsi, reached out to Brandon Batchelor to shoot a set of senior photos.
The pictures were taken at the Taco Bell located at 2203 Droste Rd in St. Charles.
Brendan Batchelor posted the pictures Thursday evening on the Facebook page of his photography company, Brendan Batchelor Photography.
Batchelor is a 2015 graduate of St. Charles High School. He’s been taking pictures “for years”, he says but didn’t really get heavily into it until his last two years at St. Charles High. He credits his journalism teacher, Lauren Hippe, for sparking his interest in getting more into photography. The photos of Creech were taken with his trusty Cannon T3i that he’s had since his junior year of high school, Aside from portraits like those that got him featured on Mashable, Batchelor has also taken night club photos for acts such as Carnage, Arty and Kill The Noise. Batchelor will enter St. Charles Community College as a freshman this fall with hopes of eventually attending the University of Missouri-Columbia’s famed School of Journalism.
Creech also posted the picture on her Twitter account. Her account, @MoGirlProbs currently has close to 60,000 followers and she’s likely to have quite a few more in the coming days. It’s also a pretty funny follow if I do say so myself.

Brittany’s tweet was then retweeted by Taco Bell. Taco Bell’s retweet of her tweet (hope you’re still following) got 1,800 “favorites” and 823 retweets as of this writing. Mashable then picked up the story a little while ago. It’s not the first time Brittany has been known to interact with Taco Bell, either.
While many of Brittany’s tweets are light-hearted or about her love of Taco Bell and the St. Louis Cardinals, she also uses her platform to tackle issues close to her heart like body image and substance abuse.
After graduating from Ritenour, Creech plans to attend college to study business and communication. She’d eventually like to go into sports management.
The photo shoot consisted of more “traditional” pictures as well. The full album can be seen on the Brendan Batchelor Photography Facebook page. Batchelor is currently offering a special for senior portraits, although after today that special may only be available for a limited time.
