Quad Cities Senior Photography | Meet Addison

Meet Addison.
This Sherrard beauty and I met up on a rainy afternoon that was supposed to clear off no longer than 30 minutes into her session.  I had arranged for an  indoor location thinking that we would be covered during the rain and then we could head to our outdoor spots.  Unfortunately, that day the storms continued well into the next morning, so after shooting indoors and then going to a couple more spots that offered natural coverage with bridges and building overhangs, we decided to reschedule the second half of her shoot, but that didn’t stop us from embracing the rain.  I went outside and shot through a window to capture an editorial photo and at the end of her session, Addison was running down the street in the pouring rain and we had an absolute blast! When we met up for the next half, we had a great day and captured some amazing photos, one of which was featured nationally  more than once! Addison, you were a blast to work with and I greatly appreciate you embracing the rainy day and trusting the process!!

Here is a little about what Addison had to say about her session with Moxie:
“My experience was great! Karen has the biggest personality and brings so much energy. She is amazing at making you feel comfortable and confident while also being your biggest hypeman. Karen is also great at posing you, picking out the perfect locations, and her job is general. I was so happy with how my pictures turned out!!!  I was looking for an urban setting and a nature setting mix so that all my pictures wouldn’t look that same. My biggest fear was being too shy and it showing in the pictures. Which was not the case at all!!  My favorite part was the first half of my session. The day of my pictures it rained a lot, so Karen worked with what we had and it was so much fun. At the end of the day we went straight out into the rain and took pictures and it was an amazing memory!  My favorite photos from my session are definitely the creek photos. The background is everything and they all look amazing! The most memorable part was climbing in the tree. It was such a fun idea and definitely one of my favorite pictures!  The Moxie Team is absolutely amazing. From picking out locations, poses, to helping you with anything you need. Karen does an amazing job making sure everything is going to be just how you want! And the pictures turn out better than you could ever expect!! I love Moxie Design because Karen is so fun to be around!

One piece of advice that Addison has for other seniors getting their photos taken?
“Do not worry about being shy or worry about poses. Karen is a huge help in bringing out your confidence and great at posing!”

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

Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, Addison!!
