Brittany Creech has had a thing for Taco Bell ever since she took her first bite of a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, so when it came time to pick a venue for her senior photos, she knew just the place.

On Thursday, the 17-year-old from St. Louis, Missouri, and photographer Brendan Batchelor hit up a local Taco Bell to put a unique spin on the average senior portrait.

Creech has expressed her love for the popular fast-food chain to her 62,700 followers on Twitter and thought they'd appreciate the idea.

"I thought it would be funny and apparently so did my followers," Creech told TODAY.com.

Since Taco Bell tweeted her photos on Friday, she's gained more than 2,000 followers.

Batchelor wasn't completely into the idea at first, but he realized how great it was once he saw how it turned out.

"It was a crazy idea, but she's a friend of mine so I thought let's do it!" Batchelor told TODAY.com. "We did a couple traditional photos as well."

She uses her popularity on the social platform to raise awareness about substance abuse and body image issues.

"When I'm not posting funny stuff or making sarcastic comments, I'm trying to talk about something relevant," Creech said. "It's a place where teenage girls can go to read tweets that they can relate to, which is what I think attracted so many of them in the first place."
