Julia | Senior Session | Hadonica's Photography

Wow! I have been so busy I just now realized I haven’t released a blog in a long time! I wanted to blog about Julia because she rocked her session! Julia is a twin, but that does not define who she is as a person. She loves being a twin, but has her own personality separate from her sister! Julia is an AMAZING person and I am so glad we were able to capture that in some of her senior pictures.

Julia started off the day by having my hair and makeup team make her look and feel her best! After that, we grabbed her outfits and headed out for her session. Julia did some shots in the studio, Warehouse, and more!

Skater Girls Model Team Shoot

I recently had the pleasure to do a Skater Girl themed shoot with my amazing Senior20 team. To say i had blast would be a understatement. To do this shoot, we went on the rooftop of Balance Fitness Studio in Cleveland, Mississippi. I want to give a big shout out to them for letting us use the roof and being able to get these amazing photos! The view of Cleveland was so stunning and so was watching the Delta sunset! Also want to give a shout out to Olivia and her sister for letting some of the girls borrow skateboards and the really cute shirts! We had such a great time, and some girls even tried to learn how to actually skate on the roof!!

Lexi | CCHS | 2019 Senior

Yay! I finally have the time to sit down and blog about Lexi’s senior session. Did I mention that she has a transformer during her senior session! (Duh not a real one but super close) Yes! When Lexi told me to come to her home to photograph her and the 18 wheeler I was like “whaaaattt” but my motto is let the seniors design their sessions it is all about them, in 20 years when Lexi looks back and she has portraits of her on her dad 18 wheeler it will mean so much to her. Did I mention that we also got to go to this super cool spot and the owner let us use his stage for photographs! Check out the ones with the mic. I photographed Lexi at her home with all the things she grew up around. Enjoy a few images from her senior session!

Lexi has a king she has an old soul inside of her, she is always smiling, well actually she has a HUGE smile whenever I see her. Lexi will be attending The University of Southern Mississippi where she will study law.

1920s Theme Great Gatsby

For this senior model shoot I wanted to do something different. I have always loved the idea of the Great Gatsby. The gals and boys did an awesome job at portraying this theme for our group shoot. The day before the shoot I located this antique phone that was perfect for the session. In some of the photos you will see PJ tellig us “Hold up I’m on the phone” some you will see us laughing. It is always a lot of fun getting together with the team and creating something fun. This has been one of my favorite sessions with them.

Best Friends Forever - Summer Gals 18

When I launched the Summer Gals program I kept in mind that  I wanted girls up to 11th grade in mind. Often times when you look back at your portraits in years to come there is a huge gap between the age   12-16  just poof not there. I wanted all the girls to have photos of that middle year, especially with the people they considered their BFF. I Summer Gals had a blast. I also would like to thank Delta Dairy in Cleveland, MS for letting us use their store, the girls absolutely loved! your amazing ice-cream.

Mission accomplished, the Summer Gals made new friends from near and far, they were all responsible and sweet to each other. I can't wait to see what next year will bring for our new Summer Gals.

 

Thank you to all of the awesome moms that helped with making Bras, showing up to shoots, and those who endured the delta bugs! You all did so fantastic. I am sure your girls will appreciate you for doing this. Check out some of the images from our shoot!

Summer Gals - Boho Horse Session

We did our  Boho Horse.. Thank you Teresa Jackson for coming out with you horse who was nothing but cooperative! You made this session so magical. Even though it was hot our girls were troopers and did so well. Even though some of the girls were scared of the horse they faced their fears and tried.  I really love the group sessions where the girls from all over get to bond.   Check out from of my fave from this session.
