Bellas: Lauren Maduzia

I wish I could show you the pictures from high school. The ones where Lauren and I used my wind up camera, swapped clothes, and ate mac & cheese for energy to create our own photoshoot. Oh wait ... high school? Maybe not.

Ok, now step a little to the left.
THERE. That was the perfect spot where the air would tickle our hair like a breeze on a summer day. So maybe we weren't at the beach with an ocean breeze, but the rickety fan would have to do for the shots we wanted. I mean, that's part of the adventure anyway :) We figured it out -- the poses, the clothes, and the styling.

Fast forward 10 years later. Hands down, this was one of my favorite sessions I've ever done. This girl has been in my life since high school and I can't even begin to tell you some of the fun Lauren & I have had and secrets we've shared. We had different math classes, but the same teacher and the same seat. So what did we do? We wrote notes to each other and taped it under the seat for the other to find the next day.

When I went home to Dallas earlier this month, we decided to relive this particular memory. Our photo session. Little did we know I would one day pursue this as a career....

Ok, ok. I'm doing this again instead of more photos. Those were some of my faaavorites, but I've been dying to get to Lauren's session to create this down there. I love what I do. I love the people I get to share this with!

PERFECTION!! Haha. According to Lauren, this is the phrase I use when I photograph. Hey, can't be a bad model if you've reached perfection, right? ;) Love you girl!
