Hello Bob,

If Briana can wait until I return from my trip to take her photos, then I would 
be more than happy to take them. Not only will I need time to take the photos, 
but it's the post processing work that takes a lot of time. She need not worry 
about her acne as I have a magic wand that can help clear her skin. I would 
like to help the other girl and I am willing to do both senior photos. I will 
take about 20 photos of each of them and I will give them each 10 of the best 
ones. Each will get a CD with their photos so they can order prints. Pls. note 
that the Photography club does not compete with professional photographers who 
make their living taking photos, therefore, this photoshoot is not a Victoria 
Photography club sponsored event. I  am doing this voluntarily on my own as a 
public service FREE of charge.

I can take their photos the afternoon of the 20th and I could have the photos 
ready that same evening. If this schedule won't work, pls. let me know asap. I 
may be able to recommend someone who could do it, although I'm not sure that 
person would do it for free (they may possibly do it at a great discount). 

(361) 485-1088 (best way to reach me)
(361) 676-6893 (cellphone)

Thank you for your kind help.  Your travel schedule should not cause any 

The student is Briana Jimenez.  I have scanned her photo from the graduation 
invitation she delivered to me.  Her invitation indicates her address as 604 E 
River, which is "under the hill" in south part of Victoria.  I will see if I 
get a phone number for her.  Briana is intelligent and has a pretty smile.  
However she has facial acne which I suspect causes her 

embarrassment.  When I was taking photos of the drill team when my daughter was 
in high school I would always try to air brush out the facial blemishes to make 
the girls look their very best. It seems that young girls only see their faults 
in the mirror, not their beauty.  I try to depict them in their beauty.  

I know of one more girl "at risk" girl that should graduate.  I don't know her 
economic circumstances.  I do think all graduates, especially the economically 
disadvantaged kids, should have senior photos taken.  Some probably have never 
had good photos taken in their lives.  If any other club members would like to 
volunteer their time and talent as a public service and gift to these kids, 
please let me know.
