Senior pictures with Madi Morris, a 2020 graduate from Grace Christian Academy was so much fun! Madi headed off to the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga this weekend. She will be playing beach volleyball there and I know that she will be an asset to the team. Just listen to the kind words her coach Darin VanHorn had to say here.
This past fall we started capturing her portraits and every session was so much fun! Madi is a sweet, kind-hearted and beautiful lady with a smile always and a kindness and humility that was a joy to be around. Our first session of her was a downtown session where we found some spots that made it look like we had gone to Florida!
Seriously! Who would have thought we were in East TN in the fall for these images!
Here are a few more images from that same session right around the corner.
Since Madi had booked my model session we had multiple sessions to capture her in different locations and different outfits. The variety we were able to get was wonderful!
The next session we went to a dock in West Knoxville to capture pictures of Madi and one of her dogs! Since pet portraits are another specialty I photograph, this was a natural fit. We had some awesome wind on the lake so getting the “windblown” look wasn’t an issue. One of both Madi and her mom’s favorite images came from this session and is now hanging in their home. Here is that image and a few other favs from that session.
The final session Madi and I did was a studio session in my home right before the holidays. We were able to get some pictures of Madi with her other dog Winnie, and oh my goodness is Winnie not adorable!!
Since the Christmas tree was set up right by the backdrop, we got an adorable picture of Winnie under the tree that Madi asked me if she could surprise her mom with for Christmas. I’ve never had any of my seniors ask for a gift for their mom before and it was a nice way to say thank you back to a beautiful family who has been a joy to work with. I know that the memories we made on these sessions will be times they look back on to treasure.
Now to get to working on the family session images from last week that we did! Oh what fun we had!
