College Graduation: Maddie

Maddie is a soon to be college grad! She’ll be graduating from Azusa Pacific University this May and to celebrate such an accomplishment she wanted to have a little graduation photo session. She’s so gorgeous and I love how her session turned out. I had so much fun with her and you would never know that she was so nervous about having her photos taken.

We started off her session at Towsley Canyon in Newhall. It’s so pretty in that area right now with all the green! We walked a little ways up the trail and our first stop was a cute tree near a creek bed so if you look hard you can see a little water in the background. Water!! Yes, I get excited about finding water being that we live in SoCal and I don’t get to see much natural flowing water. I do love that in the Santa Clarita area we have a few spots that we can escape to and enjoy nature, the birds chirping and during the winter/spring even find a little water.

As we headed back to the parking lot we stopped a couple times along the dirt trail as we saw little areas that looked cute. Maddie’s dress from Free People was so pretty and perfect for a few twirl photos in the middle of the trail. We didn’t hear any rattle snakes out just yet since the weather has still been somewhat cool so we ventured into the tall grass just a little ways. The photos in the tall grass are some of my favorite photos from her session but I have a lot of favorites! Thank you snakes for not coming out just yet.

After we finished at Towsley we headed to the Newhall Library in Old Town Newhall for a few more photos and a quick clothing change. The library gave us a different background for some more sophisticated photos with a graduation cap.

Congrats on graduating Maddie! All your hard work taking on more than the average work load is about to pay off! Loved photographing you and chatting about life during the drive! – Megan
