Bettendorf Senior Pictures | Meet Nathan

Meet Nathan.

I have known my buddy Nathan for quite a few years as we met during his sister’s time as a Moxie model, so I was super excited when I got his application to join the model team and it was an immediate YES! Nathan is an absolute joy to be around and I love the energy he brought each and every time we worked together. You may remember him from the prom shoot last spring where he had on the most amazing pink vest, tie (and socks)!  Nathan is never without his huge smile and was always up for any idea that I suggested.  His amazing mom Christa had secured an amazing indoor location for his session where we were able to play around with lighting and fog machines – it was a true rock star experience! We were able to capture some fishing photos and also some pictures with his adorable dog, Mocha! I also got to work with Mocha during the fall and winter sessions that Nathan was a part of and what an adorable pup!!

Here is a little about what my buddy Nathan had to say about his session: “I love Moxie Design because with Karen you are family. My session was so exciting! I wanted something fun so I loved showing off my musical instruments and showing off the different activities I love. Its hard for me to look at the camera so I was afraid of my pictures looking weird but my photos are so amazing. I get asked all the time who did them. The most memorable part was definitely being on stage with the fog and lights was super fun – those rockstar photos are my favorites too! It was seriously the best time- Do it!”

One piece of advice that Nathan has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Be open to all ideas. Bring things you love.”

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

Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, Nathan!!  I have loved working with you and Mocha!!
