Madison, a gorgeous senior at Broken Arrow High School, has a calmness in her spirit that belies her years. And a sparkle in her eyes that comes from the fire in her heart. She loves being outdoors and hanging with horses at her aunt's farm. She is part of the Euchee tribe of Native Americans in Oklahoma, and her great-grandmother had some of these very same traits and passions, making children and horses a huge part of her life and ties to her tribe and people. Madison has this same natural instinct with horses as her great-grandmother and when she is with horses, she is at peace and so are they. I could see the bond she had and how she just nestled into Bo as they walked thru the fields with the wind in their hair. BUT, even though she loves this part of life, she is well aware there are other things that demand her attention - like HOT PINK SHOES and a pretty party dress! I just love a multi-faceted girl!  We tried to combine her two loves on this one windy, but sunny day!

This is Madison's great-grandmother's official Euchee dress. Her mother and aunts wanted her to have her picture in it. I think it's awesome!
