I am so thankful I chose Caroline Madsen for my senior pictures! I knew right away when I saw her page on Instagram that I wanted her to be the one to capture my senior year. I am not a huge fan of getting my picture taken and I have never had professional pictures taken prior to these ones, but Caroline made me feel so comfortable, I had no problem being in front of the camera! It was so much fun. I also loved the way Beth did my hair and make up, I looked great. Wouldn’t have gone any other way.
My senior session with Caroline was amazing! With Caroline, I felt comfortable and excited to be in front of the camera. I had never had professional photos taken of myself before and she helped me through the entire process. She help me with posing and to feel comfortable to be myself. Caroline truly captures the best and most natural photos. I felt very at ease and relaxed the entire shoot. Caroline and the photos she took made me feel extremely confident. The locations she brought me to also turned out absolutely stunning in the photos. The outfits I had really seemed to fit seamlessly into the locations she had chosen for each. Her makeup artist, Beth, is also extremely talented. I gave her ideas about what look I was going for and she executed it absolutely beautifully! My senior session with Caroline was so so so much fun and turned out so wonderful, I wouldn’t have changed anything about it! I would very highly recommend Caroline to everyone!!
My overall experience with Caroline was way different than I imagined. Not only was she easy to work with but she cared about who I was and wanted to portray that in my photos. She took the time to get a feel for what I was like and made sure I was comfortable and having fun through the entire experience. As someone who looks a little out of the box compared to most of my fellow classmates I was a little worried my photographer would try and censor my “edge”. Instead, Caroline embraces it and was actually excited about it if anything. Truly an unforgettable time and I couldn’t be more happy with how my pictures turned out.
As I assume every senior must feel before their senior session, I was so nervous! Getting my picture taken is something I have never enjoyed in the past, but with Caroline, I had the most amazing time! She gave me the most helpful advice on styling my clothes, picking pictures, and overall just feeling confident with myself. Her kind and funny personality made the overall experience so much easier. Selecting photos ended up being the hardest part as Caroline captured so many amazing photos I couldn’t have dreamed of having. She walked me through the photos and helped me pick out the best and most interesting shots. I would recommend her highly to absolutely anyone. No matter your personality or interests, there is bound to be a connection between you and Caroline!
My senior pictures were the first professional photos I have ever gotten, and it was an experience I will never forget. Before even meeting Caroline I had a makeup appointment with Beth and it was such a confidence boost to hear about Caroline from one of her colleagues. Beth had relatable stories of previous senior and made me feel at ease in the salon. She prepped me by boosting my confidence and telling me just how amazing Caroline is. After meeting Caroline, my worry subsided completely. We met for pictures and within 10 minutes we were both laughing and gawking over the amazing pictures she had just taken. She made me feel so comfortable. The locations that Caroline picked felt so unique to me and my outfit choices. She knew what would compliment my skin tone and my smile. By the end of the session her and I could not stop laughing and we had tons of pictures documenting the amazing time I had just spent with her.
I found Caroline's photography page in middle school and knew I had to have her take my senior pictures. Her style was so dreamy and more relaxed than other photographers I had seen, which was just what I was looking for. I was a little nervous for the photoshoot, but Caroline made the experience so fun and exciting! She made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and the images turned out amazing! My senior session was the perfect start to my final year of high school!
I was very nervous for my senior photo session and I typically do not like to get my picture taken. But after the first couple pictures with Caroline, I relaxed and it felt easy to be myself. Caroline was able to capture my natural smile and she made my photo session fun. She is organized and professional and I felt like everything went really quickly. I was so excited to see all of my photos on Caroline’s gallery page and was super happy with how they all look. I love the various backgrounds but most of all I appreciate that my pictures reflect me and who I’ve become at 17.
My session with Caroline was so much fun and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. She made me feel so comfortable while taking pictures and I felt natural the entire time. I loved the variety of the photo shoot thanks to Caroline and Beth. I would highly recommend her to any upcoming seniors next year and I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to take my pictures!
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.
Without ever having any professional photo shoot done, I was nervous going into this photo shoot. However after seeing many of Caroline's previous photographs I was sure she was the one to do it! Working with Caroline was an experience in itself . She made the photo shoot easy. She was very fun and outgoing and even though I was shy and quirky in front of the camera, it didn't stop her. She somehow managed to create amazing photographs of me through it all. The experience was something that I will never forget, and the opportunities that came from this photo shoot were even more than I ever would have expected. After seeing my images, Bella Rae magazine (Australia) offered to have me on the cover of their magazine along with a feature article about me. What an amazing opportunity to get from an amazing photographer! It was an experience I will never forget and I thank Caroline so much for doing such a beautiful job with them!
Like most girls, I've looked forward to senior pictures for a very long time! When I finally needed to decide who I knew without a doubt I had to have Caroline! Senior pictures are a huge deal. It's something you look back on for the rest of your life and you want your pictures to be an accurate, beautiful representation of you. Caroline is the best, without question! She made me feel like an absolute PRINCESS the entire time. Pictures can be a little scary but Caroline is so fun-loving and energetic it's impossible not to feel comfortable with her behind the camera. I would recommend her to anyone, guy or girl, and she truly does a phenomenal job. From the the pre-session meeting to the final ordering process I could not be HAPPIER!
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!
My senior session with Caroline Madsen was beyond amazing. I was just like most people, nervous and unsure about the whole experience. I was so grateful to have chosen Caroline and Beth for photos, hair, and makeup though. From the moment we started I felt so comfortable with myself, something I struggle with. I am not a huge makeup person and never change up my (frizzy) hair, so when Beth understood this and still made me feel and look like myself I was amazed. They both understood my style and my kind of energy immediately, and captured the type of person I am in my photos. Throughout the session I had more and more fun, and I was actually sad it was over at the end. I wanted to do it all over again. I could not believe it when I saw my pictures. Caroline perfectly captured who I am and I could not be more happy with the results. I feel so lucky to have had the experience of having my photos taken by Caroline Madsen and my Hair and Makeup by Beth, the super fun and silly duo. Thanks so much for everything.
P.S. I would highly recommend hair alterations throughout the session :)
After 12 years of school here we are at senior year. Being a senior it came with a lot of preparations. Especially senior portraits. Ever since starting high school I knew who I wanted to take my pictures. The first time I contacted Caroline. I instantly felt her warmth and willingness to meet my expectations in my pictures. Caroline did more than just meet my expectations which shows her dedication to making every client's experience one of a kind! She does a fantastic job of understanding who you are as a person and capturing the true you in every photo! Making each and every experience very unique. I was nervous about my session but with her coaching me I instantly felt natural, confident, and beautiful. That's so crucial during pictures too and Caroline knows just how to bring that out in every client! For anyone looking for beautiful and personalized pictures. I strongly recommend going to Caroline. You will fall in love with the pictures she captures of you!
When I first got to my appointment with Caroline, I didn’t know what to expect! I’ve only ever gotten my pictures professionally taken once, so I was still new to the whole photography thing. However after meeting with Caroline, I knew I came to the right photographer. She gave me amazing advice on how to style my clothes as well as how to pose my body. Not only that, but her friendly personality made it easy to communicate with her and feel confident while taking my Senior pictures. I would highly recommend Caroline Madsen for anyone looking for a great photo session!
I don’t necessarily enjoy getting my pictures taken, so preparing for my senior session was nerve racking to say the least. I worried about what to wear and how to pose so much, that when the day of my session came around, I didn’t know what to expect. However, Caroline’s camera taking skills and pure personality calmed all my nerves within minutes of my session. Caroline made jokes, hopped over fences, and nearly stepped on an ant hill to capture the perfect shot, clearly showing her dedication. Caroline quickly made me comfortable, allowing me to pose naturally and have so much fun. I was also lucky enough to have Beth do my hair and makeup and come along with me on my session. Beth did a wonderful job, completing flawless hair changes in merely 10-15 minutes. Her makeup skills are equally as capable. Both Beth and Caroline are kind, amazing, and professional; I wouldn’t have wanted to spend this shoot with anyone else! Choosing Caroline to do my senior pictures was an amazing decision that led to an unforgettable experience to begin my senior year.
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 it was an amazing experience.
I have known Caroline pretty much my whole life so I knew that she was the one I would choose to take my senior pictures. Following her for the last few years on Instagram, I have seen all the pictures she has taken and by golly does she do a fantastic job! I had always hoped that my mom would agree with me that she would do my senior pictures because her photos are pure perfection. She knows how to bring out the best of you so she can take that perfect shot. You only get senior year once and I am very glad to have chosen Caroline.
At first I was very nervous, I don’t know why because it was one of the best experiences I have ever had and will ever remember. She knew how to make you laugh, feel comfortable and confident in every photo. Even if you felt like you were awkward, on the other side of the camera she made look like a queen. So, here is how the story goes…
In order to start the session I needed my hair and makeup done. I arrived at Beth's cute little shop and was greeted with only happiness. She was awesome, she offered me something to drink, made sure I was comfortable, and her dog was adorable which is always a plus. Once we got my hair and makeup done, which was GORGEOUS, she turned me around to the mirror to see the finishing product. I don’t think I had felt any more beautiful in my entire life. I couldn’t wipe the smile off of my face.
I made it to Caroline’s and we picked out my first outfit to wear. Once I was dressed, we loaded up the car and we were off to find the perfect spot. We went out and found all our perfect places, I loved each and every spot we chose or found. Side note but I was also very thankful for Beth and her coming out with us to make adjustments for my makeup and hair. Anyways, when we came to the first spot, I had no clue what to do but Caroline directed me. I felt really awkward for the first few pictures but they came out to be beautiful and I love all of them, you can’t just love one.
I will forever and always remember that day and how I had so much fun and laughter. Also the rule all three of us had made which was, “Whatever happens or is said in Caroline’s car stays in the car!” Thank you both so much, Caroline and Beth, it was amazing and I’m glad I got to experience my once in a lifetime senior photoshoot with both of you!
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.
As I step into my senior year I'm beginning to realize how different my life is going to be, and how different I'm going to be, after I move on from high school. Your senior year is such a big part of your life and it really is the perfect milestone to be captured. I can't wait to look back at my pictures 50 years from now and remember what kind of person I was during this time. Ever since I began high school I always thought about my senior pictures and how amazing I wanted them to be. During my junior year was when I discovered Caroline and I instantly fell in love with her pictures. Throughout my session Caroline made me feel more than confident in front of the camera, and absolutely beautiful. I'm so thankful that she was open to coming out to a spot that means so much to me and how creative she got with each and every shot. Caroline was outstanding and such a joy to be around, her sense of humor really made the session so much more enjoyable and relaxed! I would absolutely recommend Caroline Madsen for any senior seeking beautiful, all natural photos!
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. 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."
Like most people out there, I am constantly critical of how I look. Pictures are somewhat anxiety-provoking and I rarely like how I look in them. That being said, I was extremely nervous for my session with Caroline. What if my makeup and hair didn’t look good? What if I picked the wrong outfits? What if I didn’t pose the right way? What if I felt awkward and uncomfortable? I had seen others’ beautiful photographs and thought there was no way mine could look that perfect; no way that I could actually be happy about pictures of me. However, taking senior pictures with Caroline was incredibly effortless and every single picture she captured of me made me feel beautiful. Her makeup and hair artist enhanced my features, rather than covering up the real me. During the session, Caroline made me feel like a professional model and I have never been so comfortable in front of the camera. Even though it just started, I already know for a fact one of my favorite memories from senior year will be my photography session with Caroline. I would choose her as my photographer a thousand times over.
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!
I would highly recommend Caroline Madsen Photography for every senior! It was such a pleasure to get to be photographed by Caroline, she is absolutely lovely. I saw Caroline’s pictures through Instagram and I knew immediately that I wanted her to take mine.
As the first child in my family, my Mom and I had no idea how the process went. Caroline made the experience easy and wonderful. She was accommodating and made the trip to Polson to meet me. She helped me decide what to wear and knew the perfect poses to make
me feel comfortable and confident. Caroline’s makeup artist, Beth, was also so awesome to work with, she does beautiful work! I’m so grateful that I got the opportunity to get my senior pictures taken by Caroline, I absolutely love how they turned out. My experience was wonderful and I’d recommend Caroline Madsen to everyone!
I would 100% recommend Caroline to take your senior pictures or any pictures actually. Working with Caroline went better than I could have ever imagined! Being the oldest child and never having gotten professional pictures before I had no idea who I wanted to get my senior pictures done by. My mom and I met Caroline while I played on a team with her daughter Emma and after talking to her a little about what she does and looking at her work I immediately knew that I wanted Caroline to do my pictures. I am a pretty shy person so I was nervous that the entire session would be very awkward and the pictures wouldn't quite turn out how I wanted them to. However that is not what happened at all. Caroline knew exactly how to get me to open up and made the entire experience so much fun. She put so much thought into picking the perfect background for every outfit I had chosen and my pictures turned out stunning. I would also highly recommend Beth who did my hair and makeup. I am so thankful I had a professional to rely on. I am very picky about my hair and don't typically wear too much makeup so obviously I was scared that I wouldn't like the end result. Thankfully Beth knew exactly what would look good and did my hair better than any of the pictures that I showed her. My whole experience was absolutely amazing and I couldn't be happier with how my pictures turned out.
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.
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!!
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. The experience with Caroline as a whole was just fantastic. I felt so relaxed with her and I was so giddy the whole ride home from how well my day went with her.
Also I'd recommend Beth for those who want their hair and makeup to look amazing. She is such a cute person and I was so grateful to have her come along with my session to fix my hair up.
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!
I began searching for my senior outfits weeks before my senior photo session. I was always very assured that I wanted Caroline Madsen to take my senior portraits, but when it came to clothes I had no idea. Going into my consultation without a single outfit in mind, I was nervous. But as I left my consultation, I felt more assured. And by the time my photo session came around, I was more confident than ever, and it was all thanks to Caroline. She made the entire memorable experience into one that felt like a dream. She knew the perfect places for my spontaneously bought outfits, she knew how to make me really smile, and even laugh throughout the entire shoot. From climbing up sand dunes, to changing out of four different outfits, I don’t believe that there was ever a single moment that could have gone better. I would also like to thank Beth for the stunning hair and makeup that accompanied my photo session. I felt stunning and that was only amplified in the photos taken by Caroline. The two together, created a dream like endeavor that I could not have asked anyone else to do. From the outfits, to the final project, I would recommend Caroline and Beth to my closest of friends, with full comfort in knowing they will love their outcome as much as I loved mine.
Ever since my freshman year I've looked forward to my senior pictures. The thought of dressing up and posing in front of a camera capturing one of the most significant times in a young adults life, is both exciting and nerve racking. When it was time to choose who I would go through, I naturally chose Caroline! Her images are absolutely beautiful and each image is as unique as the person in them.I love how she gets to know you so you have the most special experience during your photo session that will capture your true self. Like most seniors, this was my first time in front of the camera doing an actual shoot. I was so nervous and thought I was the most unphotogenic person in the world. But once we started Caroline helped me relax and made me feel like I didn't have a worry in the world. Spending that time with Caroline was unforgettable and I will forever cherish the moments that kicked off my senior year with her! She is such a sweet, creative, and fun person. I couldn't be happier with my pictures, and she made my senior year something to look forward to. I would highly recommend Caroline Madsen Photography to seniors who want an unforgettable experience while shooting and images that reflect who you really are at this amazing time in our lives.
Senior photos are something every student dreams about throughout high school. I could not be more happy with my decision because working with Caroline Madsen was an absolute blast! She is professional yet easy going and fun to work with. She is amazingly creative and captures memories perfectly. I will forever cherish these photos as a symbol of my high school years thanks to Caroline Madsen!
I had the most amazing senior photo experience with Caroline behind the camera and Beth behind the scenes. We had scheduled with Caroline in advance and with sports and the school year approaching it gets so busy! Caroline made sure to find the best day to shoot my photos and was very flexible when working with me. I chose to get my hair and makeup done by Beth. She was so fun to talk to and made sure that my makeup and hair was just how I liked it. Beth also came along on the photo shoot which was amazing because it was a very hot day and she was able to change my hairstyle with each outfit. It really made a difference in my photos and made each image so unique. I had such an amazing time getting my senior photos taken and I am so happy I chose Caroline!
Thank you so much for the beautiful images! I love them!
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 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.
