Quad City Senior Pictures | Meet Jessie

Quad City Senior Pictures

Meet Jessie. I have loved having this Geneseo girl as a part of the Class of 2019 Moxie Model Team! Jessie has a beautiful smile that is contagious and is just so sweet and easy to get to know. We had a warm day for her senior session and we traveled to a bunch of cool spots to capture things that were important to her. One moment that I distinctly remember during her session was when we were at Milltown Coffee. I was outside, along River Drive, and I was trying to talk to her through the glass – but we couldn’t understand what the other person was saying and we both ended up cracking up! Here is a little about what Jessie had to say about her session with Moxie:

“My experience with Moxie Design was incredible. I didn’t really expect everything that came with being a model and I loved it. I really enjoyed getting to know Karen and how she can capture anything. I was very comfortable in my pictures and Karen got all my good angles!  I wanted to show some of my interests in the shoot. We took pictures at Milltown Coffee, to show my coffee obsession. I also wanted to take pictures on the soccer field because soccer had been a big part of my life since I was 5.
My biggest fear was not looking like myself in my pictures. When going to Haus of Heir, I thought I wasn’t going to have much control over my makeup look. Come to find out, I had control over everything! They made me look amazing and my pictures turned out great. My favorite part of the Moxie Senior Experience was the reveal session. I never expected my pictures to turn out so well. My mom and I had a really hard time choosing the photos because they were all so good.  The most memorable part of my Moxie session was changing my clothes in Karen’s pop up dressing room! I thought it was so funny! I had no where else to change so she saved the day and pulled out this tall green tent. It was a little bit tight, but it all worked out in the end. Moxie Design is awesome. You get to meet new people, become better at modeling with the help of Karen and her assistant Megan, and receive gorgeous pictures of yourself. I would suggest that anyone interested in Moxie to give it a shot, you won’t regret it. I love Moxie Design because it showed the best of me.”

One piece of advice that Jessie has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Listen to what Karen and her assistant have to say. Their modeling tips will help a lot. Some of the poses might seem a little weird, but they turn out great. Also be sure to have fun! Don’t be worried to suggest anything to Karen because this is your shoot and she wants to help you look your very best and the feel comfortable while doing it.”

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