Meet Madi! If you know me, you know I love my edgy girls! Especially since I don’t get to photograph too many edgy girls. (I still love my preppy girls too!) I remember last year when I held my model meetings for class of 2016 when Madi walked in. I crossed my fingers and hoped she would sign up. I thought, this girl will be so much fun to photograph through out the year. And she most certainly was a blast to get to know and photograph! Even though she has a very edgy look, she has a soft and sweet spirit that I’ve loved getting to capture!
What Michelle, Madi’s mom, had to say about her LDP experience!
“Lacey has a fun and energetic soul that shines through her photography. She loves what she does and she loves each of her models. I like to hear her talk about the present and past models as though so knows them so well. That’s because she takes her time to know them and capture them in just the right moment. Her personality and creativity shows in her work. From the first meeting, to the first session, to the first sneak peek of Madi’s first shoot, I knew I had made the right choice to have her do Madi’s senior portraits.
Lacey’s hair and make up team have opened my eyes to a whole new Madi, a Madi I have never seen before. Madi has always been a little edgy and different from most girls but, she still likes her soft side too. Lacey’s hair and make up team give her both. It’s like they knew before she ever sat in their chairs. They create a beauty in ways I never knew possible. They are true professionals. Every time I see new photos of Madi, my heart flutters. Lacey captures my beauty perfectly from serious to laughing hysterically. It definitely leaves me wanting to see more. She definitely gives you the wow factor every single time.
The senior portrait ordering session was my hardest. Mostly because spending money is so very hard for me, even when it comes to Madi’s sweet face. Of course, I wanted them all. I had a set limit to spend. Lacey worked with me so that I could have the perfect package. There were no rules for the ordering process. She came with many different styles and sizes of portraits to show me exactly what I was being offered and made my selection easier. She worked with me until I had every single photo she took and I still remained inside my budget.
Having Lacey D Photography do Madi’s senior portraits and being an LDP model for 2016 has been a heartfelt experience for me. I watched my daughter bloom. I watched her gain self-confidence that I could not give her. I have told her how perfect and beautiful she is her entire life, but still, there was something missing. There was truly something magical that happened inside Madi that I can only explain by this experience. She’s always been beautiful to me but, now she is beautiful in her own eyes. I don’t know if I would have been able to see it without Lacey giving her this experience. And for that, Lacey, I thank you. Thank you for showing Madi, through your work, just how beautiful I have always thought she is.”
What Madi had to say about her LDP experience!
“My experience with Lacey was absolutely amazing. I loved being able to have input in everything we did and I love that she goofs around and jokes while she’s finding the correct lighting and everything. She’s absolutely an amazing person and I am so glad that I had this opportunity. Krystal and Angela are the two that always did my hair and my make up. They are the most fun and sweet people that I have ever met. They never fail to make me laugh. When I first saw my photos my thoughts were is that really me. The pictures were so beautiful and jaw dropping. I couldn’t believe that it was actually me. I love that Lacey was there to help order pictures because she could show us exactly how everything would look and that she puts in her input to make things a little better. Others should have their pictures done by Lacey because I have never seen more vibrant and beautiful pictures by anyone else. She not only takes fantastic pictures but she interacts with you and makes you feel so comfortable with everything. I highly recommend Lacey.”
