So this was fun. A few weeks ago, I met Maddie and her mom, my friend Indra, at Holmes Lake at 6:30 am. It was a gorgeous morning, if a little chilly at first. Maddie is a gem, I’ve always thought so. I love her playfulness, and I just couldn’t get enough of her smile. She was such a good sport to brave the less-appealing aspects of Holmes in the morning — spider webs and the shaky bridge, to name just a couple.


I love Maddie too. Maddie is awesome. But that is clearly not Maddie, because Maddie is only six years old.

Seriously, this is great work, Renae. There are a lot of really killer shots in here. Well done!

These are beautiful shots! and Maddie is beautiful!

You did a great job capturing the sunlight and Maddie’s infectious smile. Beautiful.
