I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
Meet Madisyn Stewart, Class of 2019 senior from Washington Community High School.
I took pictures of Madisyn when she was a little girl and I have to say that I was in complete and utter shock when she first arrived for her fashion consultation!! Because (obviously, duh) people change appearances after 8 (+) years but my brain was expecting a shy, little girl, LOL! Instead, Madisyn took my breath away with her stunning beauty and fun, adventurous personality. I knew her senior session would be SO MUCH FUN and it was!
After she graduates, Madisyn plans on attending ISU and majoring in Criminal Justice. When she was a little girl, she wanted to be a veterinarian. In school, she is a Basketball cheerleader, and participates in Fitness Club, Pep Club, and she was a volleyball player for 3 years. A moment she was most proud of was during her freshman year of volleyball; she was on the sophomore team and when she was a sophomore, she, she was brought up to the varsity team.! She also loves to hang out with her friends, go shopping, swimming, and loves makeup! This year, she is most looking forward to football games, cheer season, and the school dances. Her favorite school event is Prom because it’s a fun night and everyone has a great time and she loves all of the dresses! Mr. Little has been one of her favorite teachers at WCHS because he was always willing to spend extra time on lessons and really cares for his students. Advice for freshman: It’s not as scary as you think its going to be and it goes so fast so try and enjoy it and get involved in activities that you like and don’t date a senior!!
Madisyn would describe her “perfect day” as taking the train to Chicago and walking around the city shopping and going to fun restaurants with my best friends!
Three things on her bucket list include visiting a foreign country, scuba diving, and going to Arizona and adventuring in the desert!
One of the best things about her parents would be their strong work ethic and love – “My dad is such an inspiration for all his hard work he does to run his own business and takes care of us and my mom is so supportive of me and doesn’t judge me and loves me unconditionally. I would also say that they are my hero because they are so generous and loving. They are always there for me through the good and bad!
Here are some of Madi’s fun facts and favorites:
