Everyone knows that this year has been absolutely crazy for a million reasons. One of our first sessions of the year was with Seth and his awesome mom, Laurie, and even though his session was before the impact of COVID really affected our business, we did hit a speedbump during his session that is one for the record books. We met up on a day in the spring to capture Seth’s senior pictures as he was about to graduate. Seth is a super athlete, so we were going to capture both baseball and football images once we finished up downtown Davenport with his traditional senior photos. We started with baseball and then wrapped up at Assumption’s fields and headed to Brady Street Stadium, where we had gotten permission to shoot that afternoon/evening for his football pictures. We entered the stadium (with all of our equipment, including three off camera lights, multiple lenses, cans of smoke, etc.) and we shot his football photos – everything went super well and Sam and I laughed through the entire session with Seth… until we got to the gate at Brady Street and realized that we had gotten locked inside! Luckily, Sam parkoured her way between the two stadium gates and went to my car, retrieved a step stool and slid it over to us. We somehow managed to get over the fencing gate (that is eight feet tall may I add) and were able to laugh at it once we were safely to our cars. So happy to have been a part of Seth’s senior year and provide him with a photo shoot he will likely never forget.
Here is a little about what Seth had to say about his session with Moxie:
“My senior photo session with Moxie Design was really fun. I was going for a casual and sports looking shoot. I knew I wanted to shoot my sporting pictures at the high school and football field, but outside of that, I let Karen decide. My favorite part of the shoot were the football pictures that we took at Brady Street Stadium and the most memorable moment of the shoot was getting out of there when the gate was locked. My experience was professionally done but easy going. I enjoyed working with Moxie Design because Karen is professional, but makes you feel super relaxed.”
One piece of advice that Seth has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Know what clothes you want for a change.”
