(1011 Now) A Nebraska high school student’s senior pictures are gaining thousands of interactions on social media.

But they aren’t your typical senior pictures, they are honoring her late father.

Aurora High School senior Julia Yllescas’s father died in 2008 when he was fighting for our country in Afghanistan. She said when she went to take her senior pictures, she wanted him to be there in some way.

“Why it has hit my heart so hard is that I almost felt when I saw those pictures that he truly was there,” said Yllescas.

On Saturday, Yllescas had her senior pictures taken and sent in pictures to the photographer to see if she could create an “angel picture”.

“And to have a piece of him with me throughout my senior year. Because sometimes it feels like where are you, why did you have to go,” said Yllescas.
