Mom Spends Hours Painting Daughter’s Bald Head For Her Senior Year Portraits, And The Result Is Beautiful


Having a positive mindset and the support of your beloved ones really helps when life throws you a challenge. High school student Madisyn Babcock (17) is living with alopecia – a disease that causes hair loss – so when her senior photoshoot was just around the corner, Madisyn and her mom came up with a genius idea that would dramatically boost her confidence.

Embracing her natural beauty and raising awareness for her condition, Madisyn asked her mother to cover her head with paintings of flowers. “My mother’s always been an inspiring artist,” Babcock told A Plus. “As someone who always encourages me to be my true self and loves flowers, I knew my mother was the perfect person to paint my head.”

It wasn’t the first time when Madisyn stood in front of local photographer Chelsea Taylor’s lens. “Madisyn has had a positive attitude about the loss of her hair since day one, and has used this as an opportunity to show other girls how to love themselves and own their beauty- even if it isn’t conventional,” Taylor said. “Madisyn’s mom spent hours drawing out the design and painting it on the morning of her shoot. It turned out beautifully, and her images are a direct reflection of her spirit!”

“I chose flowers because they fit me as a person,” Babcock added. “I feel I’ve really blossomed into the person I’m supposed to be.” She also said that her mom didn’t just apply paint. “It signified every single moment we’ve gone through with the process of high school. I have an entirely new perspective on life than I did when I began high school, and in that moment I think we both saw growth in ourselves.”
