I'm Madeline--a documentary photographer based in Colorado but born in Houston. I live on the prairie southeast of Colorado Springs with my dog, cat, and horse (and aspire to one day have a complete assortment of farm animals).
I am fascinated by the stories of human lives, and old photographs are one of my favorite ways to imagine and remember moments from a time gone by. I like to imagine the photographs I'm making today being looked at by a family's kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids in the years to come, just as I love to look through my own family's old photo albums.
My favorite photos are the ones that show life's beautiful imperfections--not the "perfect" posed moments, but the ones that reveal something intimate about the subject and their personality or their relationship to someone else.
Some photos of me and things that I love
"Maddie does an excellent job at making your entire family feel 100% comfortable in front of her camera - you hardly know she is there! She’s so kind and loving with the kids and has a beautifully calming personality that ensures you will get genuine pictures. I would recommend Maddie to ANYONE wishing to capture all of those little moments you want to hold onto forever."
