I have a confession to make: I have turned down photo sessions before. All wedding inquiries automatically get passed on to a few friends of mine. It’s just one of those areas of photography that makes my stomach sink even thinking about it. I commend those brave enough to handle a wedding. And, you know what? I’ve turned down senior sessions before as well. You see, I was a rotten teenager. Sorry mom and dad. It’s true. Because of my rotten teenage years, I assumed all teenagers are moody, miserable, untalkative, uncooperative, awkward, uncomfortable, and generally miserable. Yep, that just about covers it. So I’ve turned down senior sessions. Until Madison. Her mom and dad have a UPS store nearby that we had a mailbox at for a while, so we got to know them through our frequent visits. When Madison’s mom asked me if I would do this session, I almost added her to my list of “no’s”. I’m pretty sure I sat thinking about it for a while. And then I thought- you know what? I’m going to give it a try. And I am so glad I did. We had a blast! Madison is NOTHING like the teenager I had built in my mind. She is sweet, quiet, yet bubbly at the same time. She’s ambitious and belongs to so many clubs I have no idea how she keeps up with them all. She’s a beautiful girl, inside and out. Once we got her hair and makeup done and got on the road, it was one stop after another. You can see we went for a lot of different looks. We took a little road trip making lots of stops and changing outfits in the car along the way. We had an adventure. At one point, during the middle-of-the-road photos, we had a little scare. A few cars came speeding around the corner and let me just say that next time there will be an escape route planned out before we start shooting 🙂 It was fun.
