We met up with this beautiful BHS senior in the summer on a super warm day. We started off at a park where we were able to get some gorgeous nature images, then we headed to BHS to capture some cheer photos. Lexi is amazing – she blew us away with her jumps and ability to do one after another! After we wrapped the sports part of her session, we headed downtown and were able to get some really great urban shots as well as capture a more modern backdrop. At the end of the night, we were shooting near the river and the sun was setting and it was gorgeous, so we headed across the street where we literally had all hands on deck – even Lexi’s mom got involved.!! We were going for a perfect shot, so one person was on the rocks holding a light, another was blocking the intense light that was coming from the sun on one side of Lexi’s face, someone else was trying to swat away the million mayflies that seemed to swarm us – it was the most amazing fifteen minutes of shooting and it was here where we captured some of my favorite shots!
Here is a little about what Lexi had to say about her session with Moxie: “I had an amazing time, Karen and Kylie made me feel so comfortable and also just made the whole experience great! I really felt like myself and being able to talk to them just about normal things made it so much more enjoyable! I really thought it was going to be awkward and quite the whole time, however, I felt like I was just hanging out with my friends and being able to talk. My favorite part was honestly just how friendly and easy-going the experience was – I felt like I could be myself the whole time. The most memorable part of the session was having my mom there, I’m her last girl in the family so I think it made her really sad but being there for the experience made a memory between us that we won’t forget. A session with Moxie feels like you are out and about with your friends for a few hours, and you feel so comfortable just being there. Nothing feels forced and you just get to be yourself. I love Moxie Design because they are so friendly, outgoing, and care about the experience you are having.”
One piece of advice that Lexi has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Don’t stress about it, you’ll honesty get it done with and wonder what you were worried about, and the end result is so worth it.”\
If she could describe her overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose “memorable.”
I have loved working with you this past year, Lexi!
