Maddie | Senior Session | Phoenix Area Wedding & Portrait Photographer

I still can't get over how beautiful this session turned out. Even as I'm writing this I'm pausing and scrolling through the images. This whole session was a dream. I delivered just under 300 images to Maddie, and you'd never know that for 45 minutes of our two hour session we were driving across Phoenix from one location to the next. 

A few months before Maddie's senior session we met up to go over some of my best tips. It was so fun getting to know her a little beforehand! Along with my usual hair and makeup tips, I suggested that she wear lighter and softer colors, and more flowy fabrics. These softer, more flowy, lighter fabrics and colors look amazing with my editing style. Maddie followed this perfectly, as you'll see! 

Another fun fact about this session. I've never used a barstool before at a session. But one day, I think I saw a commercial on TV or something and just knew I had to have it there! I was a little nervous at first to pose her on it, but after about 5 seconds and seeing the magic happening, the nerves were gone and my creative juices were flowing at max capacity (dork alert :)) 

Finally, the thing I love most about senior shoots is just how much I get to talk to my subjects--about their life, work, passions, college, goals, dreams. It was so fun and so inspiring to talk to Maddie about her college plans and what she had in mind for her future. Both talking with her and seeing the magic images that came from this session made me want to keep pushing myself to be better and better. 

Back in high school, during a really tough sports camp, one of the camp directors said something that changed the way I thought. Whenever it would hurt to run the mile, I was out of breath and exhausted but still had 20 minutes left in a soccer game, or a trial would come up in my life, his words would replay over and over in my head, pushing me to learn and keep moving forward and continue trying my hardest.

"Each and every day in each and every way, I am getting better and better."

Maddie, you've inspired me to remember that and apply it to what I'm doing now! You amaze me, girl! I can't wait to see the wonderful things the future has in store for you....or rather that you have in store for the future. Thanks for allowing me to capture this special time in your life!

Hope you loved them!
