This Moline Moxie model (and future dentist) and I met up for her main session on a SUPER HOT day in June. We started off at a park where we sought after the shade! Audrey’s friend Emma was with us and so I gave Emma a fan to help keep Audrey cool, which really helped out – Thanks Emma!! Audrey brought some super cute outfits and we were able to capture such different looks within a pretty small location route. After we finished up at the park, we headed downtown and then I had the idea that the skybridge may be air conditioned, so we headed inside and up the elevator. I was absolutely wrong – it was so hot up there, but we did stay for a few minutes to get some really great shots. We ended the night along the river – and since the water was low, there was an area that was like a beach, where there would typically be a few feet of water. This exposed lots of rocks and trees that we wouldn’t typically see in this spot, and we were able to capture it perfectly at sunset.
Here is a little about what Audrey had to say about her session with Moxie:
” Karen is amazing and made me feel so at ease the entire time. This wasn’t just taking pictures – it was an experience I’ll never forget! I felt so comfortable with Karen. She gave me ideas of poses and instilled a sense of confidence in me. I was looking for a modern look with a flair of traditional. My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t know how to pose. Karen helped me feel at ease and i forgot I was even posing. My favorite part was being able to go different locations and gaining different experiences. I loved the sunset shot by the river at the end of the night! The scenes by the river were the absolute best. I got to step out onto a log and felt so connected with the environment in that moment. The most memorable part of my session is that I had my friend Emma with me. It was a really hot day and she was pointing the fan so my make up didn’t smear! Lol Karen is an amazing person and really knows to connect with her models and make them feel comfortable.”
One piece of advice that Audrey has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Don’t be afraid to pick different locations and mix up clothing choices. Make it fun!!”
If she could describe her overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose “creative.”
Cheers to your senior year, Audrey!!
