Portraits of a teenager- Maddie
Maddie’s “just because” shoot is a beautiful example of the joys and sorrows of being 13. 13 is rough to say the least, but I think 13 year old girls have it much rougher than boys. Still treated like a kid, wanting to be older, dealing with braces, its all just a jumble of stuff. I think Miss Maddie has a pretty good handle on things; kid enough to swing and laugh at my contortions while trying to get the shot, and beautiful enough to be confident in front of the camera and a smile that is just amazing, braces and all! I hope someday she can look back at these beautiful photos and thank her mom for thinking to capture this time in her life.
