Let’s start Makenna’s post with a story. Weeks before her original session date, I had a nightmare about her session. It was like everything that could go wrong did. The weather was gross, my camera was malfunctioning, there was no where cute to shoot, her hair and makeup was terrible…It was just a mess. I never dream about my photo shoots, so it was humorous to me. Then when the day finally came for Makenna’s photos and there was a 40% chance for rain but we were going to hope for the best. I was on my way to her house to meet my hair and makeup team when I got a phone call from my mom. It was the scariest phone call ever…She told me my dad had been ran over by his tractor. Your first thoughts when you hear that are never good ones. I called up Kelly (Makenna’s mom) and let her know what was going on and that I could not make it, I had to get to the hospital. They were so awesome and understanding. Thankfully and miraculously my dad came out on the other side with only stress fractures in his back, rib and shoulder. He’s a tough bird. Seriously, you’d think I was making it up if I told you all the times he just barely escaped death. So we rescheduled for 2 weeks later and sure enough, in that time I had another nightmare about her session. Now I don’t read into dreams much, but this was getting weird, lol. I was beginning to get nervous about the shoot, so I set out to do the most amazing job I could. I must say, I think I accomplished just that! 🙂
Makenna is just so beautiful and an amazing girl! Her and her mom were so fun to be around and it was like hanging out with old friends. I must say Makenna’s photos are some of my faves. Especially that last sunset one! <3
Here’s a link to her awesome HIGHLIGHT VIDEO!
What Makenna had to say about her LDP Experience!
My overall experience with Lacey was absolutely amazing!! I had taken photos with Lacey before with a group of girls and she was amazing then!! The experience of how Lacey was during my photo shoot was amazing and I loved it. She is so fun to be around and isn’t one of those awkward photographers!! She tells you exactly how to pose and even shows you how to do it if you don’t know how. I was afraid that I would be awkward but she made me feel so normal in front of the camera and even better made me feel comfortable! My hair and makeup experience was amazing! They did exactly what I envisioned myself looking like in every photo and I was so pleased! They were also so sweet!! When I first saw the previews that Lacey posted I was so excited and happy I wanted to see more right then!! When all my friends saw them they loved them and told me they were very pretty!! I will totally recommend Lacey to all my friends who haven’t had their pictures done yet. I couldn’t have asked for a better shoot and photographer!
What Kelly, Makenna’s mom, had to say about her LDP Experience!
My overall experience with Lacey D. Photography was truly WONDERFUL!! Lacey is a very sweet and caring person. A true artist she is!! She was able to capture Makenna’s personality and timeless beauty. Angela really listened to Makenna and applied just the right amount of makeup. She brought out Makenna’s natural beauty, it was perfect! Brianna had her hands full with all the hair that Makenna has but she did a fabulous job, once again it was perfect! These girls are both so talented!! Kudos to Lacey and her girls on a job well done! Makenna had worked with Lacey before on a Southern Charm photo shoot, so I knew the previews would blow me away, once again they were perfect! I can not wait to see them all, choosing my favorites will be very hard. Our friends and family thought that the photos were absolutely beautiful! I love having pictures of my children taken, they are all over my house. I consider this the very best art to have! My investment with Lacey will be well worth it. I believe photos can capture the very best memories! For a one of a kind experience, I would definitely recommend Lacey D Photography!! She is PERFECT!!
