Maddie Senior Session: The Woodlands Family Photographer

Overwhelmed with beauty! That's how I felt after Maddie's Senior Session in The Woodlands. As a professional photographer who specializes in Families, I am often asked to create some portraits for the high school seniors in the family. I so much enjoy seeing these young individuals blossom and reveal a bit of themselves, their personality and their dreams throughout the portrait session. I still remember vividly that period in my life. I remember the questions, the worries and my hopes. I remember how deep my first heartbreak was, how serious I was about my values and also how vulnerable I felt in front of an unknown world I wanted to explore...  

I was overjoyed when, a few months ago, a dear friend and client of mine called to schedule a portrait session for her beautiful niece who would be visiting from Maryland. And that's how I met Maddie...

North Houston Senior Session: The Woodlands Professional Photography

What a wonderful senior session we had here in The Woodlands! The warm sunset light and the vivid colors that paint our summers made the perfect backdrop for these portraits. Despite the heat of our Houston summers, Maddie chose an outdoor portrait session and wished to include the things she loves the most: her sketchbook, colored pencils and an old copy of one of her favorite books "Gone with the wind" (a novel by Margaret Mitchell which I also devoured when I was her age). As I was photographing her, my eyes fell on a beautiful rose she was skillfully sketching... It took my breath away for a moment because it was just perfect: to me that unfinished rose represents Maddie. Her elegant and quiet demeanor, her apparent guard and the depth of her rich soul. Her story - just like that rose - is still to be drawn...

Maddie, I wish you all the best in this important year of your life! Thank you for letting me create these beautiful portraits for you! xo
