Sharing Madison’s Senior Story

I’ve had the honor of working with this young woman before during her family shoot, so it was a treat to shoot her senior story! Madison’s mom joined her for the afternoon as we used downtown Houston for the backdrop. Enjoy Madison’s senior story as told through my photographs and video and her words!

 When I was 5, I wanted to be an artist. Now I want to be a physical therapist.

I most admire my mom, because she is always the one there for me and works hard for my brother and I. Plus she treats me as a best friend most of the time.

Favorite way to spend my weekend afternoon: Hanging with my boyfriend or reading. I also enjoy the occasional Netflix binge and boardgames.

I feel at home in Winter Guard. It makes me feel like the dancer I kind of wish I could be, but then I’m tough spinning a rifle. It’s a nice mixture of grace and strength.

Best moment in high school: This is a toss up between prom my junior year or being accepted into the Honors college at UH. It made me feel like my hard work had finally paid off.

I think I’m a bit quirky with a smile that’s rarely not there. Overall an average person with determination.

I’ve started making a list of places I want to travel to after college. It’s my dream to travel and actually see the world for myself.
