Maezi Grace. Flowers and horses and purple and High School Musical and pizza with ranch dressing and flamingos and shoelaces and makeup tutorials and Mmmbop and dance and “No, m’am!” and New York. Just a few of the many, many things that bring this girl to mind on a daily basis. Now she’s headed to Liberty University in the fall!
If you’ve followed my photography for any length of time, you’ve probably seen this face fairly often. I met Maezi and her twin sister Carli when they were 5 years old and I was running the after-school childcare program at their school. They walked in the week before school started and the rest was history. A lifelong friendship was born. From teaching them to tie their shoelaces and swim to ‘chaperoning’ them on their school trip to New York and visits back and forth between Texas and Charleston, life with these two is always an adventure. And here we are 13 years later and they are graduating from high school!
During their Spring Break, Maezi and Carli came out to visit me (right before Covid lockdowns started!), and we got to do their senior pictures. Photoshoots with my twins are always a little more casual as we are often running around trying to fit in a thousand activities at once during visits, so often the photos themselves are spread out over multiple days, locations, hairstyles and lighting conditions. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to capture this season of their lives, and can’t wait for the next one! 🙂
