Featured Senior


Fun, caring, and absolutely magnificent are a few of the many words we would use to describe the amazing Olivia! 

We Are SEEN Model

Olivia, a senior at Durango High School, was part of our We Are the SEEN model program. This program gave Cardwell seniors the exclusive opportunity to be seen nationally. Participants in this program had the opportunity to travel around the country with us and be featured in SEEN Magazine. Other perks included an exclusive chance to enter a monthly national contest to be featured on the Seniors Ignite website. We are proud to participate in the Seniors Ignite model contest and have had TWO national winners so far.

All About Olivia

Olivia loves spending time in the great outdoors surrounding Durango. She’s passionate about hiking, biking, paddle boarding, and rafting too. When the mountains aren’t calling her to play, she loves to spend time with family and friends, watching movies, visiting coffee shops, and in general, just hanging out. 

Olivia’s Senior Photo Shoot

As an avid outdoor lover, we knew there would be no studio or downtown shots for Olivia! Instead, we took to the mountains, streams, and rivers! From bridges to waterfalls and river banks, Olivia shone in every location, bringing warmth and fun to every setting. 

A Bright Future

Olivia is planning for a big future after high school. Her goals include starting law school to pursue he dream job of becoming a lawyer. She hopes to one-day practice divorce law or become a business attorney. 

The Cardwell Aukerman team had so much fun photographing her along the Florida River. We spent time near the waterfall, along the banks, and in the wetlands surrounding the river. It was such a joy to photograph this beautiful teen is such beautiful surroundings.  We loved how she totally rocked the serious, high-fashion look.  Thanks, Olivia, for being so amazing! We wish you all the best in your bright future! xoxo
