I had such a fun time with Angel during her session! We started off in Cleveland and ended up all the way in Shaw, Mississippi. We found some really great spots, that made for the perfect pictures. Her outgoing personality really helped making this shoot super fun. She brought most of her outfits and put together some really amazing outfits that fit her unique style! Another awesome thing is that she has decided to join the Mississippi Army National Guard, which is so brave of her! I have enjoyed getting to know Angel and having her on the Senior19 Team!

Carson Robinette | NSA | Class of 2019

I am so excited to blog Carson’s senior session. Her session was so fun and energetic. She raided the style closet, and found many cute outfits that fit her style and personality. And did you notice her beautiful red hair?? Her mom and sisters were there and was supporting her the whole time. Her dad even stopped by! Carson was apart of the Senior 19 Team, which i have enjoyed her being apart of it. She is very out going, sweet and supportive towards everyone. She goes to North Sunflower Academy, where she participates in cheer and basketball. I absolutely loved doing this session with her. She has such a unique personality and has such a bright future in front of her.

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.

Lexi always remember you are the future, you have the power to become anything you want to be and there is no limits to what you can change in this world it was an honor to photograph you!

P.S Your 18 wheel rocks!!

When PJ told me he was interested on being on the senior team I thought no way He’s a guy, the first guy ever on one my teams.

Camryn is a member of the Senior19Team. When Camryn joined the team she was super shy, all her mom wanted was for her to get out more and meet others, along with building her confidence. Camryn tries her best to be at most of our team events like the color rad shoot, spring shoots, cookie baking, skating ring ect. I could not believe this was the same super shy girl at her senior session, she brought some of the cutest outfits ever and absolutely slayed her session!

Rebecca's Senior Session | Downtown Cleveland MS, | Class of 2019

Rebecca had her senior session with me over this past month, I absolutely adored her session and the different styles she brought to the session. Rebecca brought multiple outfits including her dance outfit since she has been a dancer since 7th grade. She also wanted to do some portraits in front of her job A La Carte! I loved the blue table it added a pop of color with her all black outfit

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!

Senior19Team

This weekend I got to hang out with some of the members from my Senior19Team. We had a pretty good time despite the heat in Cleveland,MS. We started the day with hair and makeup and some pizza. This was our get together for our spring session! (Can't wait to post those) while everyone was getting hair and makeup we did our shoots in our Custom Hadonica's Photography T-Shirt. Each senior on the team gets one of these with their names on the back. Check out some of the photos of us getting ready and meet the team!.

Thanks,

xoxo

BFF Session for Senior18Team

Before my team  graduates this year I wanted to gift them something special, a best friend shoot.

I do it because I want them to know the importance of photographs. During high school we all have that friend that no matter what we can call on. After high school we sometimes head in different directions due to school, jobs, families you know the adult stuff.

This was one of my ways of ensuring my team would have a photograph of their BFF in the years to come. In 20 years my girls will be close to 30.. Yes team 30! LOL They will look back at these photographs with their new family and even that same best friend  and reminisce about how much fun they had during their senior year, they can tell their kids all about how they picked their outfits, how they couldn't walk on the gravel in heels, and why they wore flower crowns. My goal with each team is to create memories that will last a lifetime. I love catching their genuine laughs those to me are the best!

Here is a  few snapshots

Paint fight with Senior19Team

I am finally getting around to our Senior19Team paint fight. We had to reschedule due to our Mississippi weather being so crazy! The wait was totally worth it.

We hand made our powder paint from pinterest using starch and food coloring (Make sure to get the Gel kind) it is  totally harmless and washes out easily!  We found an empty field and loaded our cars up with paint and sheets so we wouldnt ruin the car of course. Then we got to throwing. The game plan was to space the powder out and grab a handful.... Well we ended up throwing the whole containers at each other so we ran out quick! If you ask me next time we would make more paint or use liquid paint! We are now prepping for our water balloon fight!

 

I love actives like this with my senior team, often time we are so busy that we barely get to have fun. We had to ditch the cell phones and run!

Beautiful outside session | Photography

I had such an amazing time photographing this young lady for her senior portraits. It was a windy cool day but that did not stop us, we had a comb in our pockets the whole time to make sure she was flawless. I am happy that in 20 years she will be able to look back and have beautiful portraits of the person she was.
