Quad Cities Senior Photography | Meet Lillian

Meet Lillian.
I have had the pleasure of working with this beauty over the past year as she is one of the Class of 2022 models.  I remember the first time that I met her at the prom session – she showed up wearing this absolutely breathtaking pink dress and we found a tree that matched it pretty perfectly.  That image was featured nationally (along with pretty much every other image that I have posted of her)!  During her full senior session, we experimented with smoke bombs, which was super fun!  As per usual in 2021, we had some rain drops fall in the middle of Lillian’s session, but only a few, so we were able to keep shooting. Lillian has the brightest blue eyes and a smile that could light up any room and I am so thankful that she was a part of our model team this year.

Here is a little about what Lillian had to say about her session with Moxie:
“My overall senior photo session experience was amazing! I am so glad I chose to have my pictures taken by Karen she made it such a fun experience!  I went for looks that I felt comfortable in, I wanted to wear outfits that I knew I loved so I felt more confident. I tried to branch out of my comfort zone for the extra shoots we did, and those pictures turned out amazing! My biggest fear was posing, I have never been able to look super comfortable in front of the cameras, but Karen was awesome I have never had a photographer help me with poses and make me feel so comfortable as well. My favorite part was branching out of my comfort zone for the thrift challenge, I wore something that I wouldn’t usually wear and the pictures came out amazing! My most memorable part of my session was doing the smoke bombs, I have never done anything like that and it was so fun, the outcome of the pictures were amazing!  If I were to tell my best friend about my experience I would tell her how confident Karen makes you feel in front of the camera even if you are shy she will help you get out of your comfort zone. I would also tell them that not only is it a wonderful experience, but the pictures she takes come out amazing.  I love Moxie Design because Karen is like your personal hype man! She makes you feel so confident!”

One piece of advice that Lillian has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “One piece of advice I would give to seniors getting their photos taken is to branch out of their comfort zones, most of my favorite pictures taken were the ones where Karen asked me if I wanted to do editorial photos and things I wouldn’t normally do.”  <– This advice is epic!!!

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

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