This Geneseo High School senior and future Bradley University student and I met up over the summer for her senior session. When I read through Becca’s pre-session information sheet, I was so excited that she wanted to do some dance photos. When we were choosing locations, I really wanted to get a few silhouette images, but I had no idea that Becca was a jumping all star and that her photos would turn out to be such magic. We were blessed with a sunset that went from purple to orange and the colors absolutely popped! Not being an athlete, I was in awe of Becca’s talents and her ability to nail her poses within the first couple of takes. I will never forget when we were at a stream at the beginning of her session and she asked if she could do a jump in the water… UM, YES! I knew from that moment that we were going to capture some serious amazingness. We also experimented with some glitter and those photos turned out super awesome! You are a rockstar, Becca!!
Here is a little about what Becca had to say about her session with Moxie:
“I really enjoyed my shoot. Karen made me feel super comfortable in front of the camera, and I had so much fun. I was worried that my dance photos were not going to turn out as well as I hoped they would. However, Karen absolutely blew me away with how awesome my action shots turned out. I enjoyed Karen’s flexibility. We had so much fun trying out our different ideas. She was open to everything I suggested. I used a flowery setting for my “normal” poses and then used a few colored walls and the WIU campus for my dance poses. The contrast in locations really make each photo unique, and I really liked that. I had a specific jump I wanted Karen to shoot. After she took the photo, she showed it to me to make sure that the jump was perfect. I was so happy that she was able to capture all that dance means to me in a single photo. Moxie is one of the best experiences any high schooler could have. Karen makes your session feel absolutely wonderful. I have memories that I can keep forever. I love Moxie Design because it is an experience I will never forget.”
One piece of advice that Becca has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Try anything in your shoot. I got wet in my shoot and tried all kinds of things, and that truly made my photos even more exciting. Keeping an open mind and taking risks will help Karen to truly capture who you are.”
If she could describe her overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose “wonderful.”
Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, Becca!!
