Mikaela will be graduating from Texas A&M this year and wanted to document this achievement for her family with some fabulous senior portraits.

When she contacted us at The Senior Project, we were so excited to work with her for an on campus session.

Unfortunately, Mikayla’s brother, Joe Villavisencio, and A&M offensive lineman was killed in a car crash in December of 2011 and

Mikaela wanted to honor him in her portraits.

“Being together under the century tree means that you will be together forever,” she said to me. “I think that does not have to be

just about romance. I know my brother will be with me forever.”

So we photographed Mikayla under the century tree with her brother’s jersey.
