Maddy | {Bellarmine Preparatory High School Senior}

Tacoma Senior Photography0001Maddy is a senior at Bellarmine Prep and will graduate with the Class of 2016.Tacoma Senior Photography0002We met on a beautiful evening as the warm sun was starting to turn golden….and it was so fun to hang out with Maddy and her family!Tacoma Senior Photography0003The Mayflower Dairy is a popular place to get photos because it is rustic and the sun sets perfectly on the farm. Tacoma Senior Photography0004Maddy definitely wanted a golden hour session…and she got it!  It’s getting harder to predict now that fall is here…but, our summer was FULL of beautiful evenings!  I just love living here!Tacoma Senior Photography0005Senior photos is the perfect time to squeeze in a family photo or two….Tacoma Senior Photography0006Tacoma Senior Photography0007It’s also usually a time of decision making and trying to figure out the next steps…but, Maddy already knows her path…or at least what she thinks it will be and it’s very specific!  She will be attending college for sports management with her end goal to be a Capologist!  What’s that?  I know…I asked, too!  It’s the person that calculates and controls the cap salaries of football players…at least, that’s what I remember.  And…from her love for the Cowboys…I am betting she would want to work for them!Tacoma Senior Photography0008She loves football!Tacoma Senior Photography0009Tacoma Senior Photography0010Love those brown eyes!Tacoma Senior Photography0011We wanted to get a little bit of that fall look…and she put on the sweater even though it was in the 90’s!  It paid off…I love this set!Tacoma Senior Photography0012Tacoma Senior Photography0013So beautiful!Tacoma Senior Photography0014I love doing sessions with seniors…I think that’s obvious.  But, I also love doing their ordering sessions!  When they see themselves on the large screen and get to see how beautiful they are…it’s so fun for me!  And, we always make sure that there’s tissue close by for the moms!
Tacoma Senior Photography0015She was very comfortable in front of the camera.Tacoma Senior Photography0016One more change and we enjoyed the last drops of sun…don’t you love this dress with the grasses and the golden light?!  I did!Tacoma Senior Photography0017Gorgeous!  I have to say…it’s not easy to walk in this field…but, she did it with grace and elegance!Tacoma Senior Photography0018This is my favorite shot of the day!  It’s so dreamy and warm.  At this point in the session I typically have more than enough images to fill a gallery…but, that means I have some time to play…and this was one of those! Tacoma Senior Photography0019I love making them laugh!
Tacoma Senior Photography0020Maddy!  Thank you so much for meeting with me!  I had a lovely time and I can’t wait to hear about your college adventures!!!  Happy Senior Year!Tacoma Senior Photography0021
