This beauty has been a part of the Class of 2021 Moxie model team and I have loved getting to know her over the past year. Our first model shoot was at the Hyatt hotel last February and I remember a very specific moment when Haley was sitting up on the bar and we were setting lighting and I looked up and knew that this girl was meant to be in front of a camera. When we met up for her session, I was so excited that she brought her two sweet pups to the park – they were adorable! From there we went to downtown Davenport and Haley blew me away with her natural modeling ability. We lucked into the fact that one street we were shooting on was closed off because of construction, so we were able to get some poses that we never would even attempt because we had security in the form of barricades. When we finished up downtown, we were able to capture her mad figure skating skills. I remember at one point I wanted to get a certain shot and was laying on the ice. I told Sam that the next time we do an ice rink shoot, I should wear a full snowsuit (that ice went right through my leggings) so Sam got a huge piece of cardboard for me to lay on so it wouldn’t be so brutal – it still makes me laugh to remember that moment. Without question, Haley is absolutely breathtaking and she brings an energy with her that is contagious and amazing to capture on camera.
Here is a little about what Haley had to say about her session with Moxie:
“My senior session was amazing. Karen and Sam are both really easy to work with, and they made me feel very comfortable the entire time. I was able to be myself and get all of the pictures I wanted to. We also had a lot of fun and laughed the whole time. I was scared that I wouldn’t like my facial expressions, but all of the pics turned out great. I loved how personal it was and I also love how I was able to get such a variety of pictures. The most memorable moment of my session was wearing my prom dress in a park. There were definitely some odd looks from the other people there. I recommend Moxie Design to anyone for senior pictures. They create such a personal experience, and always make sure you are satisfied with the result. I love Moxie Design because they were able to make my senior pictures everything I ever dreamed of.”
One piece of advice that Haley has for other seniors getting their photos taken?
“Don’t be afraid to be yourself. The pics turn out way better when you look like yourself and aren’t trying to force poses/facial expressions.”
If she could describe her overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose “magical.”
Thank you for being a part of our model team, Haley!!
