Cambridge Senior Photography | Meet Sydney

Meet Sydney.
This Cambridge senior and Moxie model and I have had the opportunity to work together multiple times over the past year.  Syd is absolutely gorgeous and so much fun to be around!  Kylie and I had a blast during her full session and shared so many laughs with Sydney and her amazing Mom. We started out by getting into a creek at my favorite park and I LOVE those images! Then we headed over to capture some garden images and found a willow tree that was perfection.  After we wrapped at the park, we headed downtown and found some really awesome spots.  We took a few cheer photos before heading to our last spot to capture Sydney’s amazing gown! I fell in love with this dress – it was red carpet glam gorgeous and Syd looked absolutely stunning!  Every night that I have a session, I hope for a beautiful sunset, but the night of Syd’s shoot we had the most spectacular sky –  from one side, it was a beautiful blue with hints of pink and the other was the most beautiful orange and yellows with a hint of purple, which went perfectly with her dress.

Here is a little about what Sydney had to say about her session with Moxie: “My session with Moxie was amazing! I loved every second of the shoot, it was a wonderful experience! I loved all the laughs we had-  it was a lot of fun. Karen is so nice and she really has a vision. She knows how to have you pose for the best outcome and that outcome is amazing. My photos look incredible! I was going for a lot of different looks in my shoots, I wanted some simple and cute photos, and some dramatic and fun photos.  I did not have any fears or worries about the photo shoot. When I went in for my first shoot I was nervous if I’d like Karen or how I would even look in the photos. Once I walked in, Karen greeted me with a joyful smile and a bubbly personality and it made me so happy. While taking the photos I felt so comfortable in front of the camera and my photos turned out amazing!! My favorite part of the experience was getting to see all of my photos! I loved all of it, but getting to see my photos was so much fun and I couldn’t wait to share all of them!  As far as favorites go,  I can not just choose one photo, I have about 10 favorites!  If I had to choose only choose two, I’d probably choose either the one of me in the black dress at the park holding onto some of the willow tree branches, or the one on me in the black and pink prom dress throwing the skirt!  I love Moxie Design because Karen created wonderful photos of me and I enjoyed every moment!”

One piece of advice that she has for other seniors getting their photos taken?  “Do not be nervous, I was nervous before my first session and how much I would like it. Once I walked in and saw Karen’s joyful smile I was no longer nervous.”  <– That is so sweet, Syd! Thank you!!

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

I have had so much fun having you as a part of the Moxie model team, Syd!!  Can’t wait to see what your amazing future holds!!
