Madi is just amazing. She’s a senior at Lakewood Ranch High School, she loves to hang out with her friends and bake, and she’s involved in several clubs around her high school. Her fav book is Me Before You and she likes a lilttle twang in her music. Her bucket list – Go to Paris, travel to Venice gain and go skydiving.
When Madi and her mom arrived to my studio in Bradenton, I literally teared up. That day was my birthday and to me, I was just super excited to have an amazing high school senior photoshoot that day – but when they showed up with an orchid, a yummy muffin and a balloon, I just about died. How amazingly sweet was that? And something I’ll never forget. I knew after that day, I would definitely see more of Madi and her mom. You could 100% see how Beth (Madi’s) mom raised such a sweet, kind young woman. Beth was just the same. So excited to be there (may have cried a couple times ;), and truly enjoyed the senior experience along with Madi. It’s in those moments I am reminded of why I do my job. I don’t even like calling it a job… it’s my passion.
