Quad City Senior Photography | Meet Ethan

Meet Ethan.
This Geneseo soccer star and future St. Ambrose business major was a part of our Class of 2021 Moxie model team and we have loved working with him over the past year. We were able to shoot Ethan’s main session at his grandparent’s farm, which is something that I absolutely love to do.  When we are able to incorporate a location that has sentimental value to my seniors and their families, it just makes their photos that much more meaningful in the end.  One of my favorite part of Ethan’s session was at the end when we were doing soccer pictures. I had him dribbling and doing all sorts of soccer stuff and I just kept saying “one more time” which, in the end, would always mean at least six more takes.  I am super grateful that Ethan was open to any ideas I had – his photos turned out so awesome!

Here is a little about what Ethan had to say about his session with Moxie:
My senior photo experience with Moxie design was excellent.  Being a Class of 2021 Model, I had opportunity to go a formal shoot and then my senior shoot. I wanted my look to represent me, so I went with relaxed and casual.  I have never done anything like this before. My mom encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone. In the end, I’m glad I did this because Karen is great to work with made me feel very comfortable.  I wanted to have my shoot out at my grandparents farm in rural Geneseo, IL. It is my favorite place to spend time since I was a little kid. Also, soccer is a big part of my life, so we had to do some action shots at the Geneseo High School soccer pitch.  The most memorable part of my session was when Karen was shooting through the corn stalks!  Karen and her team are professional, creative, and the best to work with!  Karen helped me document memories that I will have for the rest of my life.”

If he could describe his overall senior session experience in one word, he would choose  “excellent.”

Stacy, Ethan’s mom had some sweet things to say that I wanted to share:
“Our experience with Moxie has been phenomenal! Ethan is a member of Moxie’s Class of 2021. This experience definitely pushed him out of his comfort zone and was a great learning experience. Karen’s approach and process yields amazing results!  Her knowledge, professionalism, and creativity is best in business.

Spending time with Karen and her team has been a highlight of Ethans senior year in this unusual year of disruption with the pandemic. We made and documented memories through this process that I will cherish forever.”

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