Quad Cities Senior Photography | Meet Sophia

Meet Sophia. This beautiful Assumption High School senior and I met up last year on a warm summer day in July. We had planned out our locations and I knew based on Sophia’s wardrobe looks and where we would be shooting that we would get some great shots but OH. MY. GOODNESS. This girl was born to be in front of a camera and was an absolute natural in every single shot. It was such a fun day – and almost fairy tale like when we were at the park. The creek was surrounded by sunflowers and daisies, we saw deer just wandering by and butterflies were everywhere – I even captured one in a photo!! It was a wonderful day with a beautiful girl and her awesome mom!

Here is a little about what Sophia had to say about her session with Moxie: “I absolutely loved the senior photo session! I had so much fun and Karen was so nice and welcoming. I felt completely comfortable right from the beginning of the shoot all the way to the last shot. I was looking for a shoot that gave me multiple aesthetics, while also staying true to myself! I picked a few different outfits that all were different from each other and I loved all the different photos. My biggest fear was that I would look uncomfortable in my photos. I was totally wrong! I looked so relaxed and natural in my photos and I adore all of my photos. My favorite part of the Senior Experience was definitely when I received the personal candy and drink. I of course was so thankful for Karen’s encouraging words, but the personal gift that I got was such a sweet and thoughtful touch. For locations, we went to a park and used the flowers and bushes to get awesome photos! We even found sunflowers and a butterfly that was such a fun picture. We went to a waterfall and used the water to create some really cool shots. We also went to downtown Moline and took some cool urban pictures. The most memorable moment of my session was taking pictures in the water and feeling like a model! I absolutely loved taking photos with Moxie Design and you should definitely take yours with her!”

One piece of advice that Sophia has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Be happy and relaxed, there’s no reason to stress!”

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

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