Meet Kaytlin.

This Bettendorf volleyball all star and I met up late last fall for her senior session.
Because the cold weather came a bit later than usual, we were still able to capture some flowering trees that we typically wouldn’t have been able to at the end of October, which was super cool!  Kaytlin has the most beautiful smile and these really gorgeous eyes and she really came alive in front of my camera.  We shared some great laughs throughout the session and I was so excited to be able to capture some of her volleyball amazingness!

Here is a little about what Kaytlin had to say about her session with Moxie:
“My experience was wonderful!! This was so much better than I could’ve imagined and you made it so easy.  My favorite part was that you knew just how to position me and make me feel so comfortable that my pictures not only looked natural and like me, but they were everything that I wanted and more. In fact, you did things that I didn’t even know I wanted, but LOVED!!   My biggest fear was that it wouldn’t turn out like I wanted and that my choices in outfits wouldn’t really show who I am. It turned out so much better than I could’ve imagined and I was so excited because it was exactly what I wanted and hoped the pictures would turn out like, but EVEN BETTER!!!  My favorite photo is the volleyball picture with me laying down and my hair spread out. It is my favorite because volleyball is such a big part of my life and I have dreamed of playing in college since I was a kid. Not only did my dream to play in college come true, but the way you posed me for this picture really shows me and my passion for volleyball. It’s just a picture that I love because it captures who I am and the way you did my hair looks so cool.  If I was telling my best friend about Karen and Moxie Design, I would say that you have to have her take your pictures!! She is so AMAZING and your pictures will turnout better than you can imagine. She will give you exactly what you want and do things you didn’t even know you wanted!! I still can’t believe how good my pictures are and sometimes I look at them and can’t believe that’s really me because they are so incredible and super cool!! I love Moxie Design because who I am was brought to life in every single picture!”

One piece of advice that Kaytlin has for other seniors getting their photos taken?  “Don’t stress about finding the perfect outfit, pick things you like and that look like you do everyday, Karen will do the rest. It doesn’t even matter what you’re wearing because she will make you look so good!!”

If she could describe her overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose  “authentic.”

Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, Kaytlin!!
