My name is Madeline Faye Potter and I'm a traveling Texan who likes everything unconventional.  

ABOUT PEOPLE

I love people. Every time I walk in a crowd I tend to spot beautiful things in random people. Crazy freckles. Frizzy hair. Intriguing laugh. Chipped nails. High cheek bones. Wide hips. Toothy smile. 

I love how people hold themselves when they have no clue someone is admiring their beauty. 

Individual quirks in people are my inspiration. 

I want to capture your quirks and your beauty. Whether you're an engaged couple or a unique individual, I will be there embracing your fashion and toothy smile. 

Let's work together. I will form a fashion portfolio for you. All you have to do is show up and work it.

I will create portraits for you so you can remember an important time in your life forever. 

I will be the reason you have a beautiful coffee-table book of your engagement and shared love.  

So...

lovebirds. models. individuals. 

Ask me to work with you. I won't let you down. 

 

ABOUT TRAVEL

When I was very young, I quickly realized that I did not like to play with barbies and indoor toys. When I was left inside too long I ended up doing bad things like coloring on the walls and dumping oatmeal on my sister and cousin's heads because I was that crazy, restless kid full of too much curiosity and impulse.

Instead of playing inside, I wandered around my family's land finding myself lost in the woods or discovering new meadows and creeks. 

At age 4, I would ask my mom to take our globe off the shelf so we could play with it. She would answer all of my questions about places. I would stare at foreign countries and wonder.

Over the years, I constantly researched new countries and dreamed of traveling. I bought calendars featuring countries like Italy and France and set my desktop photos of the Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. 

Once I was in college I was able to pursue my dream. As a sophomore, I took an Honor's World Lit class where I studied the history, culture, and social-political transformation of Central Europe. After the semester, the class hopped on a plane where we visited Budapest, Prague, Berlin, Dresden, Vienna, and Old Town Bratislava. 

I came back from that trip finding a part of myself. I switched my major to photography. 

The next year I repeated the World Lit class but visited Paris. 

One year later, I studied at Harlaxton College in England for 4 months, visiting a new city every single weekend. It was the time of my life.

In 2016 I visited New Jersey and New York City while temporarily living there. Then I explored Europe for 5 months as a solo female traveler, meeting so many amazing people and places. 

In 2017, I was an au pair in Busto Arsizio, Italy. While there, I visited Milan often because it was very close. I also visited a lot of nearby cities as well as Napoli, Sorrento, Positano, Pompeii, and Capri. Once my position as an au pair came to an end, I visited one of my favorite places--London. From London, I went to Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands as those locations are also one of my favorite places to visit. 

This year, I am so excited to be visiting Sri Lanka! I've been wanting to visit this island for years now. After Sri Lanka, I am visiting my host family in Italy that I was an au pair for and in August I will be exploring the majestic Iceland! 

It's all an incredible experience. What's next on my list of places to travel? Well, the entire world of course!

 

oh look! I have credentials:

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas Woman's University with a Bachelor in Visual Arts with a Focus in Photography
