Episode #57 show notes

Is there anything more amazing than a community of friends connected by great memories and strong bonds? For high school senior girls, it’s especially powerful to have a community of peers who are all going through the same things at the same time. 

Community is exactly what Maddie Nichole strives to empower. Maddie is a Montana-based girls’ high school senior portrait photographer whose senior program is changing lives. She doesn’t just take senior photos; she creates a senior tribe of girls who gather for activities, adventures, and support during their senior year.

In this episode, Maddie explains how she built the program—and how you can create a senior tribe of your own!
