I love it in life when things come full circle. Unknowingly, this happened for me with Alex. She was chosen as a member of my 2020 Street Team, so when we met at her meeting to plan out her sessions, I found out just who she was!
Delta had a wonderful principal when I was in school by the name of Miles Lowe. His wife, Mrs. Peggy, was our school counselor. There wasn’t a basketball game that I remember going to that he wasn’t there. He was a great example of someone who loved their job and their school. He was stern, but he was also forgiving. Mrs. Peggy was wonderful as well and was always there to help. She always had a smile on her face! She suddenly passed not long after I graduated high school, and it was a loss we all felt. I often wondered how Mr. Lowe was doing since I haven’t seen him in several years.
At this meeting, I found out that Alex is his granddaughter! I can’t tell you how excited I was to hear this, and to be able to catch up with them on how he was doing now. Everything made sense once I found out, because Alex is a lot like them the more I get to know her. She was blessed with wonderful parents, but even more so with wonderful grandparents (on both sides!)
Alex chose to do our two season senior package, which included a full summer session and a full fall session. They were both so much fun!! Wait until you see her grandfathers car that makes an appearance in her fall session….just wow!
She probably gets tired of hearing this from me, but I always tell her how gorgeous her skin is. Those freckles!! Gosh, I pray she never wears anything to cover them up!
Here are favorites from both of Alex’s sessions ❤
I’ve never met a person that could change the color of their hair to anything they want, and be able to pull it off flawlessly. That is, until now.
Madison chose to do our two-part Senior Story session, which included a full summer session and a full fall session. Both started with hair and makeup at the studio, then we went to the preplanned destinations that Madison wanted.
The summer session went like this- hair and makeup was finished, outfit number one was on, and we went outside to load up…… and the sky was black. The rain surrounded us, just like those good ol’ summertime thunderstorms do, and we couldn’t do anything about it. We all decided to make lemonade out of lemons, and shot as much as we could in the studio and a little outside in-between rain showers. She came back a week later and we finished up part 1 of her Senior Story session (thanks to Brooke and Kelsie who graciously did her hair and makeup complimentary for that second round! How sweet are they?!)
Round two took place in Little Rock. Madison knew she wanted something outside of the box, and that’s just what we did. The leaves were vibrant in their fall colors on the trees, the sky was clear and blue, and Madison of course picked out the perfect outfits to go with the locations. I swear y’all, she could do that sort of thing for a living. They were perfect!
Oh, I forgot to mention that she also decided to change her hair for each session. This is where the truth from my first paragraph takes place. Madison chose to do long golden blond hair for the summer part, and short spunky brown hair for the fall…..pulled them both off effortlessly. Yes, there’s a little bit of jealousy in my tone lol!
Every time I look at these, it brings back so many fun memories of her sessions. In case you haven’t watched, her full Senior Story film video is posted to my facebook page. You can see it here
