I first met Addie when she was a senior in high school. I was in college with her older brother. We were invited to spend the day over at their house one afternoon to watch movies. A year later she began going to school with us and we were friends ever since. I’m stoked to present her Downtown Fort Worth portrait session.
Addie is very intelligent and strong willed when it comes to the ideals she believes in, which is probably why we’ve always gotten along so well. She’s the kind of person to defend someone’s rights and happiness. Her passion for justice and political change is very inspiring. She’s honestly one of the few people I know who actually fights for change, and doesn’t just talk about it. The world needs more people like that.
We’ve both since graduated from college and are doing different things now. She recently told me she is moving to New York this fall. I know she will thrive and continue to fight for the rights of others, no matter where she is.
I’m glad I was able to photograph her in the city she grew up in before she leaves it. I believe these images emanate how strong and beautiful Addie is as a person, which is my goal for every session I photograph. Certainly, I will miss running into her at Brewed and reminiscing about college, but I am so excited to see what she achieves in New York.
As a disclaimer, she has never modeled before, which I was amazed by. She’s just that cool.
