Tucson teen goes viral after senior photos at Mattress Firm and Eegees, but it's not her first moment of fame.
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Many high school girls take their senior photos in a field of flowers or on railroads tracks, but not Timea Post.
Post is a senior a Tucson High School and her photos inspired by the "beauty of Tucson" have gone viral.
After Post tweeted 4 of the photos, news outlets like Buzzfeed and Teen Vogue and every other local media outlet wrote stories about the pictures.

The photos are instant classics: Inside a Bookmans, next to road construction, at Eegees and in front of one of many (many) Mattress Firm stores.
We figured it was best to meet up with Post at one of these Mattress Firm stores. We met at Grant and Swan where there were three, yes THREE, Mattress Firms on one corner.
Post says the fame has been "insane, crazy." She said "people that I haven't talked to since middle school messaged me and said 'hey I know you!'"
As we talked with Post, a Mattress Firm employee came out of his store and recognized her.
Tyler, the employee, said a colleague of his had sent him a link to the photos and recognized his store at Grant and Swan in one of Post's stories.
Believe it or not this isn't the first time Post has gone viral. You may recognize her as the girl seen kayaking down her street during a monsoon.
After graduation, Post plans to stay in the Old Pueblo and attend Pima Community College.
Tuesday afternoon an Eegees' employee recognized Post as she left the drive thru and the chain quoted her tweet but she says no offers for free food yet.
Timea clearly loves Tucson and we think it's safe to say that Tucson loves her back.
