I first met this young woman in November of 2019 at a conference that I taught at. She was one of the models for my class and within a few moments of talking to her (and her wonderful mother) I knew she would be PERFECT for the students to create art with. She has a grace and flow to her that moves perfectly from image to image and she gave her all to each-and-every student that put a camera in front of her face.
I became fast friends with them both and knew that I had found good people that I would work with as much as our paths crossing could allow.
So during a recent trip to my home state of Iowa (where they know reside) I knew we had to work together again and capture a concept that we initially set out to do during 2020.
That day of photography and art making was special in so many ways. I got to meet a new group of individuals that are incredibly talented (model, costume designer and expert reflector holder with a penchant for the BDubs) I got to work with dear life long friends as photographers and was reunited with an amazing artist to design the hair and makeup art that Madison wore during this session.
Truthfully I continued to reflect on how special it was that we were all together in one place, doing what we love to do. That was the energy that drove this shoot and aside from those piercing blue eyes, the beauty and grace she represents and the laughter through it all, it was the story of our day that I see when I look at this series.
Hope you enjoy!
