Holly Payne | Richwoods High School Class of 2020 senior pictures

January 11, 2020

Meet the ahhhh-dorable, lovable, sweet, silly, with a hint of sassy, Class of 2020 senior from Richwoods High School, Holly Payne.  I am obsessed with her freckles and those hazel eyes!!!!  Holly’s smile is contagious!   Getting to know Holly this year has been wonderful and I’m super excited to share her photos and more about her!

Holly would describe her personality as quiet at first, but then outgoing and loud once she gets to know the people around her!

After high school, Holly plans on going into Dental Hygiene Program at West Virginia University.

Her favorite class is US History. “I like learning about the events and struggles that our forefathers endured  to become free and have the rights I have today. I also like learning the different viewpoints of each historical event and being able to visit what I learn about.”

“This year, each game, competition, and practice for dance has been very meaningful. The amount of sacrifice it takes to be at practice every day at 6:00 am as well as every weekend has been a challenge, however so worth it when we perform. It’s always a good time at every game and competition!”

Besides being a Royalette and participating in several clubs, Holly volunteers at a local elementary school and helps with the first grade

Three things on my bucket list: 1. Skydive 2. Travel all 50 states 3. Laugh every day.

  5. Favorite family holiday tradition: Easter Weekend my extended family goes to my grandparents and we go geode hunting and get super dirty and break them open to find the beautiful treasure inside. Last Easter while my family was out looking for Geodes I was able to find the largest one yet, and with the help of my family I was able to carry it back and it broke open to be a beautiful gem!

  8. Why did you choose Shelby Photography for your senior portraits photographer?

Cindy makes it easy to pose and smile, and the photos always turn out great and they are so quick they were to receive!

My favorite themed session was the Generational Shoot. The garden was so beautiful and I liked taking pictures with my dad.


As a Shelby Senior, I have been able to connect with girls the I danced with a few years ago and become better friends!
