Pleasant Valley Senior Pictures | Meet Hope

Meet Hope.
This soon to be fashion communications/business major is one of our Moxie models representing the Class of 2023 and I have LOVED working with her over the past year. Hope is absolutely a natural model through and through. You can literally see her photos come alive as you are taking them, which led to capturing so many great shots during her main session.  We started off at the park where we hiked into some really tall grass and Hope didn’t hesitate for even a minute.  Her fashion choices were out of this world amazing and she is so sweet and fun to be around!

Here is a little about what Hope had to say about her session with Moxie: “My experience was amazing. Karen is able to capture images that I never expected. I have worked with many photographers and Karen is one of the best! She is innovative with her poses and creates the most gorgeous images- it was wonderful! So many great shots!  I loved the whole experience.  What I loved most about the shoot was that I was able to change up my look so many times. My biggest fear going into the session was the weather and we lucked out and had a perfect day. When you can’t pick just a few favorites, you know its good. My favorite part of the Moxie experience was that I absolutely loved being a part of the prom shoot. The shoot site was elegant and the dresses were gorgeous.  I love Moxie Design because they make the session fun and take the stress out of it!”

One piece of advice that Hope has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “I would tell them to have fun with it and just feel free to express youself!”

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

I have had so much fun getting to know you over the past year!!! Can’t wait to see how you influence the fashion world!
