Quad Cities Senior Pictures | Meet Ali

Meet Ali.
I have known for a few years that I wanted to get this gorgeous girl on the other side of my camera so when she applied to be a Moxie model, I was ecstatic. I love everything about her – she is such a sweet and genuine person and has the most gorgeous smile!! The day of Ali’s session was super hot and sunny. We knew that we would be shooting in Geneseo, and we had gotten permission to shoot at a special spot at sundown for some gorgeous sunset pictures incorporating Ali’s super cool bike, so I knew it would be a great shoot before we even got started.

Here is a little about what Ali had to say about her session with Moxie:
“My overall senior session was amazing! I had attended my sister’s senior session so I kind of knew what to expect, however it exceeded my expectations! I loved how my photos turned out. This experience was something I will never forget. I wanted something bright and colorful. I love flowers and nature so I wanted to incorporate that somehow. Karen did an amazing job! My biggest fear about this photo shoot was that I wasn’t going to like how I looked in the photos. I had never really gotten my picture taken before and thought I would be uncomfortable. I was completely wrong! Karen made me feel so comfortable in my skin in the photos I was taking. I have loved every single photo Karen has captured of me. She is the best! My favorite part of my Moxie experience was having the opportunity to be creative and different in my pictures. Karen encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. I am so glad I did because those were the pictures that were my favorites. I wanted to have a lot of nature shots so the locations I chose were based around that idea. I chose a flower field that my mom and I had found in my home town and the pictures turned out gorgeous. Another place I chose was downtown Geneseo, which is where I live. The last place I chose was the Hennepin Canal. This location was based around me wanting to use my bike for some shots. The photos were so fun and different. I was happy with all the locations I chose. My most memorable moment in my session was the last hour when we were in the flower field. The sun was setting and the sky was the prettiest color. This was the most memorable for me because it was exactly what I had visioned for my senior pictures. The Moxie Design senior experience is extremely unique and unlike anything you will ever do. I highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting to make some fun memories and have some beautiful pictures. I love Moxie Design because Karen is the best!!”

One piece of advice that Ali has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “The best advice I have is to just enjoy the experience. Getting your picture taken can be uncomfortable for some people, however Karen makes it so much fun! Be open to different ideas and outfits because the pictures turn out amazing!”

Thank you for representing Moxie for the last year, Ali!! We love you!
