This high school student knows how to think outside the bun.

When St. Louis resident Brittany Creech was choosing where to have her senior portrait taken, she decided to go with her happy place: Taco Bell.

“Remember when I told you guys I was gonna get my senior pictures at taco bell and you thought I was joking,” Crouch wrote when she Tweeted four of her senior photos, in which she makes traditional senior-portrait-esque poses (smiling, laughing, looking off into the distance) in a less-than-traditional locale.

Taco Bell, of course, was super flattered.

The full set of Creech’s photos were uploaded last week to photographer Brendan Batchelor’s Facebook page, and the girl is honestly glowing. Glowing. Because that’s the power of tacos.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Creech started a national trend. Because why take photos in a field or garden when you spend more of your time in fast food establishments?

Remarkably enough, Creech isn’t the first person to take professional photos alongside Tex-Mex cuisine. In July, San Francisco–based writer David Sikorski took engagement photos with none other than a burrito.

Verdict: We’re into it.

One day she will look back at this and say to herself, “That was stupid, what was I thinking?” Hopefully she took one nice photo outside of tacobell

In this day and age, this beautiful girl already has thousands of pictures of herself that are just as lovely, but I think it is hilarious for the Taco Bell picture to appear in her yearbook.

Love it. I applaud anyone who lets their own personality pour out rather than doing what everyone else does. 🙂 Kudos to her for doing something fun.

This is what society has become? How ridiculous! This generation scares me

She looks like Karlie Kloss and Angela Lindvall, both of whom are also from the Mid-West.

Fitting. . . she’s already becoming acclimated to her lifetime career.

Morons are good for theboccasional laugh, anyway.

Anyone who tries to put this girl down is sad about their own life. She’s being goofy… who cares. Anyways, one person doesn’t represent a generation and even if she did, it’s better to have someone freely expressing themselves than to have a bunch of homophobic racists. Go home, baby boomers. You’re drunk.
