We have enjoyed blogging our weddings and allowing everyone to have a more intimate look into the work we do so much that we have now decided to start blogging some of our portrait sessions now as well. We love making new connections and creating new experiences with people, but we felt selfish keeping all that fun to ourselves. Here is a peek into our senior portraits session with the beautiful Hayden Hubbell. Hayden was such a joy to work with, and her beauty truly does radiate from the inside out.
With all of the cancellations that have come with the Coronavirus, we are doing our best to make sure that seniors are still getting recognized for their accomplishments. This pandemic is affecting everyone, but it doesn’t have to be all bad. Let’s take this time to celebrate our graduates and reminisce on their journey throughout high school, while we also look towards the future. We asked Hayden a few questions about her high school experience as well as what she is looking forward to as she enters this next phase of her life. It is such a great way to learn more about some of our local seniors. We hope that you guys enjoy this new style of blogging we are starting and that you continue to follow what we are doing when we aren’t at a wedding!
“My favorite memory from high school would have to be when I was elected to the homecoming court for my senior year. It was such an honor, and I truly could not believe that I was on the ballot. At my high school, the whole school votes for HOCO queen, so that meant I was up for the position. I was just so thankful that I was even on the ballot, so it didn’t matter to me whether I got queen or not. We had a few weather altercations, so we had to move the homecoming football game from Friday to Thursday night. Thursday was when the HOCO court was on the field with their escorts and when the football announcer announced queen during halftime. I remember standing on the field just grinning from ear to ear thinking how thankful I was to be in standing on the field as a 2019-2020 Oxford High School Homecoming Maid. I honestly didn’t expect to hear my name called for HOCO queen. ‘And now for your homecoming queen…Miss… Hayden Hubbell’ our football announcer said. I could not believe my ears; I was so extremely happy to hear my name called. There is a video of me right when my name was called, and you could tell how surprised I was. That is my favorite and happiest memory from high school.” – Hayden
“One piece of advice that I would offer to an incoming freshman would be to always stay positive. I have found through challenging times, if you always look on the bright side, things will turn out the way you want them to, whether that be in a day, a week, or even a few years. Being positive will encourage so many things and will get you places in life.” – Hayden
“After graduation, I am planning on taking a beach trip with a few of my friends, a family trip, and going to nationals with my studio. I also plan on spending time with my family this summer. After the summer is over, I will be attending the University of Mississippi in the fall of 2020.” – Hayden
“I plan on majoring in accounting and minoring in finance. I have always loved numbers and figured this could be a great path for me. You can do so many things with an accounting degree, so it is a very flexible major.” – Hayden
“My main hobby is dance. I have been a dancer for nine years now. I started when I was really little, then decided to try gymnastics, then moved back to dance. I love the art and sport of dance. It challenges me in so many ways that I didn’t know were possible. I dance for my high school dance team, Oxford Chargerettes, and for two studios, Deborah Kaye School of Dance and Oxford Academy of Dance Arts. I compete with DKSD and take extra strengthening classes with OADA. I hopefully plan on taking my dance career further in college.” – Hayden
“In ten years, I see myself working at a very exciting job in a large city.” – Hayden
