ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Most high school seniors head to the park, a garden or a grassy field for their senior pictures. One St. Louis teen, had a completely different location in mind.
Brittany Creech, who runs the Missouri Girl Problems twitter account decided to take her senior photos at Taco Bell. She released the photos via Twitter, receiving over 9,000 retweets and 18,000 favorites.

Creech said that about a month ago she tweeted about taking her senior pictures at Taco Bell. Photographer Brendan Batchelor made that request a reality.
“When I hired Brendan I said, ‘hey can we do this at Taco Bell?’ and he was all for it,” Creech said.
Creech noted the support of customers and employees in the restaurant during the photo shoot.
“I think they were interested in what was happening,” Creech said. “The employees were really nice about it and laughing about it, so it was fun.”

With over 62,000 followers on Twitter, it was no surprise the photos went viral.
“My followers think it’s amazing a lot of media is picking up on it,” Creech said. “It’s just a fun light hearted story and I think that’s good to see in the media.”
As for whether or not the photos will stay with her throughout senior year, Creech has an answer.
“My friend Izzy is the editor-in-chief of the yearbook and we are putting the photos in.”
