Madison Hansen | Senior | A Flower Garden + Lakeside Senior Session in Rural, WI.

July 14, 2015

I have a couple of senior sessions to share with you today + Thursday!! First up is the beautiful Miss Madison–this girl will have you grinning from ear to ear, I can almost guarantee it! Her smile is to die for + I can still hear her laughing when I look back through her images : ) She is stylish, kind, a lover of dogs (major bonding there) + just a bright, lovable young woman : )

At Waupaca High School, Madison is a senior involved in Pep Club, Student Council, Green Team, + most important to her, Dance Team. She has been dancing since she was a little girl + this year she is a senior captain for the team where she performs with precision (I’ve seen this girl dance!!) + leads the team with passion. Once she graduates, Madison is not sure exactly where she wants to go to school, but she has a few places in mind. No matter where she ends up, however, she is excited to meet new people + start this new journey of her life!! 

Madison–what a fun evening it was with you (+ your momma + sis!!) Thanks for making my job SO EASY + for being willing to trust me with different location + pose ideas! I hope you are happy with the results!! Enjoy your last year, pretty lady, + good luck on a final dance season!!! 

I just LOVE this pop of color!! Such a cool old building : ) 

And then we just HAD to make use of this gorgeous light, so Madison changed outfits + we shot RIGHT next to the blue barn, just a different background! You would never know : ) 

Ahhhhhhh!!!! <3

 A favorite!!

I LOVE this, Madison!!!

More favorites here … just stunning!!

And then we found the real life secret garden!!!!!

Dreamy, dreamy, DREAMY!!!!

Such a beauty : )

And can totally bring it with the model face!!!

We ended Madison’s session at her grandparent’s house on the lake … just perfect : ) 

Believe it or not, this was actually the first time I had been to this lake (even though we were in my hometown!!) + I fell in love! So beautiful!! 

Another favorite : ) !!!
