As an incoming high school senior, I had never had professional photographs of me taken, so senior pictures were a wary foe. To be frank, the event was completely terrifying at first. However, despite my early-on awkwardness, Caroline managed to make me look beautiful, happy, and carefree. With the immense help of her enthusiastic and enjoyable disposition, I gradually eased into the shoot, and by the end of the session, I was laughing at her hilarious jokes and having one of the most pleasurable experiences of my senior year thus far. To further emphasize Caroline’s incredible skills, I had my hair and makeup done by Beth Burrall. This talented young makeup artist is a complete joy to be around. The makeup was flattering, light, and reflected my personal style. Most importantly, she didn’t make me look over-done or under-done on camera. The hair was exactly what I wanted. After showing her one photo of my ideal hair, she completely transformed my flat, stick-straight dissapointment into something absolutely Pinterest-worthy. After completing my hair and makeup, she was kind enough to agree to attend my shoot. Having her at my shoot was one of the best decisions I have ever made. She turns into a super-woman for those few hours, carrying anything and everything, making sure no hair dares go out of place, and touches up your lipstick before you even begin to notice. On top of all of that, she makes you feel comfortable and at-home, cracking jokes and suggesting great ideas. Both of these women created an absolutely magical experience for me. I could honestly not be more pleased with the fantastic outcomes of my shoot. The shots vary in expression, lighting, background, and atmosphere, with each one being more stunning and unique than the last. I received my photos in an extremely timely and convenient manner. Caroline truly cares about the entire process of the photos, contacting you prior to the shoot to confirm outfits and to brainstorm setting ideas. She texts you periodically to update you about the progress of the photos after the shoot. To summarize, I will repeat the words I said to my underclassman friend when she informed me she was having Caroline take her photos: "You have absolutely nothing to worry about, she will make you feel confident and beautiful. And when you see the photos, you won’t have any doubts that you are exactly that.
Caroline Madsen photography, for me, captured personality as well as originality. There is nothing I love to do more than ski and when I showed up with them at my photo shoot Caroline seemed enthused and also excited. We were not three photos into our session when I heard "Wow, I think I got it." She literally took my perfect picture in the first five minutes because she knew what I loved and how she wanted to portray that love. Her skill captured a senior picture of me that was unlike any other I had ever seen, a one of a kind. Aside from her sheer talent, Caroline is a fun person to be around. Her photo shoot does not feel like you are hanging out with a complete stranger but rather a close friend who some how had the ability to connect with me on a personal level. It is sad that I am only a senior in high school once because senior pictures are fun. But more importantly, Caroline made it fun and if I had the opportunity to have a second shoot I would choose Caroline Madsen Photography.
Being the first girl of three, my mom and I had no idea where to begin with senior pictures. We procrastinated and procrastinated making the decision, and then we saw pictures Caroline had taken, and we were floored. Her work was phenomenal. We were lucky enough she let us book a session, considering we called so late. Due to our busy schedules, and the distance, making time to meet prior to the session was difficult. Caroline, however, was extremely understanding and so easy to work with! She and her phenomenal makeup and hair artist came all the way out to our farm. It was so, so nice of them to let me take get my pictures taken in a place so special to me and my family. We spent a few hours picking out outfits, and she was very understanding of each of my little picky requests. I cannot thank her enough for being so easy to work with! She made me feel so comfortable, and she
As someone who rarely takes photos of themselves, I had no idea how to come across as photogenic. Shooting with Caroline felt so natural, and the experience had an appeal much deeper than the photos themselves. The entire session we were talking and laughing, and she even helped match my shirts with one outfit. Professionalism goes a long way, and Caroline made sure to stay on top of everything. Whether it be emails, pricing, scheduling, and picking locations Caroline was organized and courteous. She was extremely flexible in her timing, and with her professional attitude towards photography the pictures came out the exact way I wanted them to. The compliments I have received on my photos only further show how talented Caroline is with a camera, and the timeless poses and versatile locations have allowed the photos to look good on any wall, any desk, and in any wallet. Overall my experience was fantastic and I had a wonderful time spending an afternoon with such a passionate and enthusiastic photographer.
Having done a couple of previous photo shoots with Caroline, there was no one else I would have wanted to take my senior pictures. I have always been thoroughly impressed by her work and looked forward to my shoot for months. Caroline was wonderful throughout the entire process, from picking out outfits to designing graduation announcements. She made me feel completely at ease in front of the camera and was able to really capture my personality in my photos. Not only did Caroline do an amazing job, but so did her hair and makeup artist, Beth. I opted to have Beth come along on my shoot to touch-up my hair and makeup, which was such a great decision. Having both of these ladies there made my session even more of a blast. Overall my senior picture experience was incredible, and I absolutely adore the final products. Caroline Madsen is dependable, fun and remarkably talented, and I would encourage anyone to choose her as their senior picture photographer.
Booking my senior session with Caroline was so professional and easy, she took care of absolutely everything. During the actual session Caroline made it so incredibly easy to just be myself and have fun! I had never laughed so hard, or felt so comfortable in front of someone I had just met. Caroline rolls with the punches so well, and makes sure to get amazing shots (even after tripping into a sinkhole.) Yes, that happened~ poor lady tripped right into a sinkhole; still managed to get a beautiful picture, and avoided breaking her leg. Now that truly takes a lot of skill. I was so glad Caroline was with me to begin my last year of high school, I would not have wanted it any other way!
I had a great time doing my senior photo shoot with Caroline. I was nervous at first, but she made me feel relaxed and confident by the first couple of shots. Caroline met all my expectations in respect to the photo shoot locations and style of back grounds I had in mind. She was very creative and captured me in many different ways. In advance of the actual shoot she helped me narrow down my clothing options to give me the best look that would fit my personality, which helped a ton! Going through the photos and narrowing them down was so hard. I absolutely loved all of them! It was so nice that we were able to view the photos easily online for a couple of weeks before ordering our pictures. Some of my friends and family were then able to help me choose. It was so funny because I would ask them to pick their top 5 photos and everybody would choose different ones. This just shows how well all the photos turned out! I am so glad I was able to have Caroline Madsen take my photos. It is a choice I will never regret!
I loved every minute of my senior session with Caroline Madsen. I can’t think of a time where I didn’t know Caroline, so there was never doubt in my mind who I would choose to document this stage in my life.
Ever since I was a little freshman I'd been so anxious for my senior pictures. I scouted out all the photographers in hopes of finding one that would capture them perfectly. I was indifferent to them all, that is until I came across a portrait taken by Caroline Madsen. I proceeded to creep on her site and found myself amazed at the uniqueness of her work. I knew right then she HAD to be the one to take my pictures.
I had the most amazing experience getting my senior pictures taken by Caroline Madsen. It was definitely way easier and stress free than I could have imagined. Caroline drove out to my house (in the country) with her exceptionally talented hair and makeup artist, Beth Burrall. Caroline sized me up, advising me of some different outfit ideas and things. She has a great eye, I might add! After Beth finished on my makeup, we proceeded to pile into her car. I had no ideas of where to even start but Caroline remained undaunted. We went to some corrals, pastures and an old house on our property. I really love how the pictures turned out! Caroline's pictures are extraordinary. She is so easy to work with and talk to. The entire session was a blast. I highly recommend Caroline as a photographer for any senior. I also highly recommend having Beth Burrall as a hair and makeup artist.
I would recommend Caroline to everybody. She was great to work with and helped me feel comfortable during the photo shoot. Caroline was friendly, professional and very quick getting the proofs back to me. I am glad we chose to work with her.
When choosing what photographer would take my senior pictures, there was no doubt in my mind that Caroline Madsen would do them. She made me feel so comfortable and it was an experience that I will always remember and treasure. She has a special talent for bringing out natural beauty, while still making the photos look edgy and high fashion. Thank you so much Caroline! I am so grateful to have found you and your wonderful eye for photography.
My session with Caroline surpassed my expectations by a long shot. Weeks before my pictures, I was counting down the days until I experienced the one night that I have been envying since I was in the 6th grade; my senior pictures. That Friday came and it felt like Christmas. The anticipation was finally over! I couldn't wait to go to Beth's to get my hair and makeup done and to feel like royalty. Finally, it was time to start shooting and as the shoot went on I could feel myself become more comfortable in front of the camera. Caroline makes loosening up easy and the art of photography so much more fun when the subject is you. For the rest of my life I will reflect on my senior portraits and I couldn't be more happy with them. Caroline was able to capture me as my truest self and because of that I could not thank her enough!
Caroline and Beth were more than helpful in every way. The week of my originally planned shoot had horrible weather and Caroline did not hesitate to reschedule for the next best weather opportunity. I knew exactly what was going to happen from good communication and packets of information- there is a consultation beforehand that she goes over outfits and anything else you could possibly want to know so you look your best on the big day. I chose to have my hair and makeup done also, which I would highly recommend for senior girls; it looks very professional. The shoot itself was very fun and easy going. Don't stress about knowing poses or if you look good, Caroline lets you know everything you need to know. If price is a concern, it really is a once in a lifetime experience and you receive exactly what you want! Overall I could not be happier with my senior pictures!
LOVED the shoot with Caroline Madsen. She is personable. From the second I met her I felt as though we had been friends for years. This put me at total ease and I felt completely comfortable the entire shoot. She is funny. The laughing pictures of me aren't fake! She is professional. While she is completely fun and relatable, she is also accountable. She is really, really good! I had extremely high expectations for my senior pictures and she completely met them.I highly recommend Caroline Madsen. You won't regret it!!
I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for posting some of the pics of Kierra. Every time one of them is posted I think it is my favorite and then the next one you post becomes my favorite. Most of all, the look on Kierra's face when she came home after the shoot was priceless. She had great stories about the places, poses, the colors, and YOU! I have received numerous calls from friends who have seen your posts offering rave reviews and extreme praise of your work. When I saw the photo of Kierra sitting on the ground with her back against the wall I started to cry. It moved me and I thought it was because I am her mother. I was instantly taken back to Kierra, age 3, when she would look at me with those eyes and I couldn't help but crumble. Then I shared your FB page with a friend. She saw the same photo and started to cry. We agreed that this photo, now dubbed 'The Eyes', truly captures the innocence of Kierra. It is piercing....and strikingly beautiful.The experience for Kierra and the product of your work is timeless. Thank you for sharing your gift. Forever grateful. Tory (Kierra's Mom)
Working with Caroline Madsen was the easiest, most enjoyable experience I've ever had while getting my picture taken. Being a teenage boy, I'm always a little uncomfortable sitting in a pose while someone hovers around me with a camera, telling me to tilt my head or to look happier, but Caroline completely took the awkwardness out of the situation by being very easygoing, sociable, and fun. Her love for what she does is obvious, and is reflected not only in the brilliant pictures she takes but also in how she handles herself during the actual shoot. I'm incredibly pleased with my senior pictures, and I would highly recommend Caroline to anyone who wants amazing pictures taken while having fun at the same time.
I loved my experience with Caroline Madsen! She made me feel comfortable and at ease as soon as we started. I was nervous about having my pictures taken but it ended up being really fun and i enjoyed how she took me to places that complimented the colors I wore. It made me feel special and that she actually cared about the shoot rather than it just being her job! I LOVE the way my pictures turned out and would highly recommend getting your pictures done by her~it was great!
I had a great experience with Caroline Madsen Photography! Caroline made it easy to relax and to be comfortable in front of the camera quickly. Her ideas for my shoot were original and unlike any of her other shoots. I was glad that my shoot was unique and the settings were not repetitive of others senior pictures. I was very impressed with the outcome of my photos! Though Caroline edited them, they still appeared to be natural and looking like myself. I had so much fun with Caroline. My shoot was very successful and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
My photo shoot was a ton of fun! Caroline helped me feel very comfortable and we made a connection right away. I really liked that when I didn't know what pose to do Caroline gave me great ideas. Caroline let me put my own style in the photos and that totally brought out my personality which I could see in each photo. Caroline knew all of the fun and cool places to go that matched with the outfits I was wearing (important to us girls right). Once my slideshow was ready for viewing my mom and I got to spend a lot of time going over the photos. Picking and choosing which pictures we wanted to purchase was one of the toughest decisions because they were all so good. Caroline is a fantastic photographer who made me feel comfortable, not intimidated. Caroline made me feel beautiful when she was snapping all the pictures and I could definitely tell she loves doing her job. Caroline is the most creative, fun, and out-going person ever! The experience was awesome and it always be one of my favorite memories of my senior year.
Caroline Madsen is amazingly talented. She is a wonderful photographer as well as a wonderful person. I have never had so much fun taking pictures! She makes everything so comfortable and easy, and has a great eye for what the artistic side of a moment as well as capturing who you are. The entire time we were taking pictures I keep wishing that we could just keep taking more. I had so much fun with Caroline that I was really ready to start senior year. Taking pictures with her got me excited, not only for senior year, but for all the wonderful memories and experiences that come with it, starting with senior pictures. Caroline is also very quick when it comes to seeing your pictures. Shortly after my session was over, my family and I were picking out our favorite ones! I could hardly wait to see them and it took no time at all. Starting the year off by capturing memories as well as creating one is what Mrs. Madsen does. Thank you so much Caroline!
Caroline surprised me from the get go of my senior session. Her great personality set me at ease, and my nervousness for the session went away. After she took her first few photos I felt comfortable to be myself. Then as we finished taking all the pictures I was really excited to see them! When I first saw the results of our session I was extremely excited with the results and impressed. Caroline was very professional. She put together an awesome session, was quick to produce the finished photos, and made it easy for me and my family.
I had the best time with Caroline when she took my pictures! From the moment I met her, I knew I was going so have so much fun! I absolutely love the way my pictures turned out and have received numerous compliments on the quality of the photos. I felt so comfortable and having a bunch of pictures taken of me wasn't awkward at all like it can be sometimes. I would highly recommend having Caroline take your pictures if you are still undecided. You won't regret it!
I had a session with Caroline Madsen to do my senior pictures and I was so happy with the results. She has such creative ways of making your photos unique and making them stand out. During the session I had a lot of fun, she gets to know you as a person and doesn't make you feel like you're just another senior getting their photos taken. You can tell she enjoys what she does and it definitely shows in the finished product. I would recommend Caroline for a photographer.
My senior session was a blast! I was unsure at first whether senior pictures would be awkward or not, but it wasn't at all! Caroline is fun, personable, and makes you feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. The session was full of laughs and I would do it again if I could. I know that Caroline would easily be my go-to girl for any photographs for any occasion! Thank you so much Caroline!
Wow, what an amazing photographer! I was blessed to have Caroline take my senior pictures in early August, and they turned out great! Getting your pictures done is always stressful, but she made the experience very enjoyable. Caroline is such a funny lady. Was making me laugh the entire shoot! What a sweetheart she is too! My pictures were beautiful, thanks to Caroline. I know that they couldn't have been better.
Going into the shoot I was nervous but Caroline is very easy to work with. She made me feel comfortable when she took my pictures by her patience and reassurance. She made sure that each time I posed for a picture that it looked natural and I felt natural.
My senior photos turned out terrific thanks to Caroline Madsen: She made the shoot easy and fun while still producing incredible, varied results. I felt completely at ease when she was taking my photos and experienced no awkward or uncomfortable moments during the entire session. I also particularly enjoyed the cool, unique backgrounds she utilized, which ranged from a textured metal storage unit to a pristine prairie. Caroline Madsen guaranteed me satisfaction but I walked away with delighted surprise. Fantastic work, Caroline!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience when it came to senior pictures. Caroline did such a beautiful job with my photos. Seeing my first picture today I know I made 100% the right choice by choosing Caroline and having Beth do my makeup. It absolutely boosted up the natural look to my pictures. Couldn't be happier! Thank you Caroline & Beth!
Being a guy, the thought of senior pictures isn't much fun and a bit awkward, but Caroline completely changed my mind! She was very personable and made me comfortable throughout the shoot, and had great locations picked out! I would highly recommend Caroline Madsen Photography to anyone looking into senior pictures, and am very pleased with how mine turned out!
I absolutely love all of my senior pictures! Not only did all of the prints turn out amazing, but it was such a fun experience and Caroline is so fun to work with! Beth made me look beautiful for my pictures and she and Caroline are both so good at what they do!
My decision to have Caroline Madsen shoot my senior pictures was absolutely the right choice. I could not be happier or more satisfied with the quality, selection, and awesome photography. She made the experience fun and did a phenomenal job of putting me at ease while making great suggestions on how I could make the photo even better by using different positioning. She did an amazing job of selecting the back ground for my pictures that added variety and made each picture unique. I am also very pleased with the many different framing and sizing options that she has to offer. I would highly recommend Caroline for your shoot and I am confident that you will be as pleased with the results as I am with mine.
My senior session with Caroline was unforgettable. At first, I was a little nervous, but after a few snaps Caroline’s personality made me comfortable. She has so much knowledge and creativity I never had to worry about anything. Caroline is also very organized and professional, while still being able to make it a blast. Not only is Caroline an outstanding photographer but also an exceptional person.
Caroline was so helpful during this entire process! She offers a consultation before your session to answer any questions you may have and to go over outfit and location ideas. I felt so much better after meeting with her! I highly recommend Beth Burrall, Caroline's hair and makeup artist. Having my hair and makeup done professionally made me feel much more confident throughout my session. Caroline was great at making sure I was comfortable while my pictures were being taken, and reassuring me that I didn't look awkward! My family and I are SO happy with my senior pictures. Caroline truly makes her images look magazine worthy!
