Bettendorf High School Photography | Meet Bella

Meet Bella.
This gorgeous Bettendorf senior and Moxie model and I have had the opportunity to work together on numerous shoots!  Bella is absolutely stunning and has an amazing sense of fashion.  We started her shoot on a really warm day at the park and had some beautiful flowers to shoot around. From there, we went downtown and shot a couple of looks before heading to BHS to capture cheer photos.  I loved seeing Bella work with her dad on stunts and was so happy to be able to capture some amazing photos of the two of them!  To end the night, we headed to a gorgeous hotel where we were able to fully embrace Bella’s model / high fashion side with an amazing dress and killer backdrops.  The hotel happened to be really busy that day, but Bella didn’t let it phase her for even one minute – total rockstar!

Here is a little about what Bella had to say about her session with Moxie: “My session with Moxie was fun and it definitely boosted my ego a little bit more.  I chose a bunch of different looks because I love fashion.  In the shoot, I was going from 70s to businesswoman to glamour. I was worried that I wouldn’t get pictures of my good side but Karen made sure that that was a priority. My favorite part was the business woman outfit and when I got to stunt with my dad for my cheer photos. The most memorable moment of my session was when my mom was carrying me because I couldn’t walk in the heels I was wearing. It was a good experience and it is really fun if you love to dress up and take pictures.  I love Moxie Design because the whole experience was professional and fun.”

One piece of advice that she has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Don’t be afraid to express yourself no matter what other people might think because they’re your photos and Karen is there to make it happen.”

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

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