Young women today have so much to navigate through socially & emotionally. Consequently, the teenage years are some of the most difficult years in our lives. You have the academics, the high standards you aim to meet, and then the quest for college. It is all so overwhelming, and it definitely drums up some stressful memories from my own high school days. Somehow, teens today do it all! They are maintaining good grades, holding part time jobs, and nurturing full time friendships, all the while meeting every expectation necessary to put them on track for college. (They must have great parents!)
Due to their inspiring hard work, one of the best parts of my job is that I get to work with these amazing young women. Ultimately, I get to know them well enough to capture the cool, the pretty, the funny, and the serious. They get pampered with professional hair/makeup, they get to wear their favorite outfits, and then have the most awesome experience on set taking pictures. Above all, for several hours it’s their time to shine!
Watching Madison get to experience being a star for the day was such a treat. Madison is the girl that puts a smile on my face! She is incredibly positive, uplifting, and her sense of humor cracks me up. For the past year, I have had the privilege of working with her on my model team. During our time together, I discovered that she is one of the most organized and punctual girls I have ever worked with. Needless to say, I am very impressed by Miss Madison. I will look forward to watching her grow and shine in life, just as I do with each and every senior I photograph.
I just love the white walls with Madison’s white pants!! Such a beautiful combination for her senior portraits!
Senior portraits are all about displaying personality! So I LOVED that we were able to make a stop at the creamery to capture Madison’s passion for ice cream! How cool is it that we get to personalize each and every senior session? I want for every senior to look back 20 years from now and smile because they have this memory from a wonderful time in their life!
Below is by far one of my most favorite images of Madison!
I love this fun set of images below! We had a hilarious time capturing Madison walking down the street!
Fun fact: All of Madison’s jewelry was borrowed from my special senior portrait collection! All of my senior clients have access to the jewelry for their session.
