Anna Milligan - Texas Interview by Claire Path Video Editing by Olivia Bush Nomination and Photography by Janey Cooper Photography Issue 32 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: Anna Milligan is one of the most talented, determined, and focused senior girls I have had the opportunity to photograph! She has so many facets to her musical talent and shares her gift with the church while serving in the worship band. She had specific requests for her senior session to capture not only her praise music, but also her love for writing music, and the fun, punk and edgy side! What a gift it was for me to be serenaded by her beautiful voice while she sang her heart out during her session with me. Her beauty on the exterior is obvious, but she has a genuine heart for serving others and a perseverance that leaves you certain she will be successful in her chosen path.
