This Bettendorf senior and I met up in the fall for his senior session and we shared a lot of laughs. I have gotten to know Kohler’s family over the past few years working with his siblings and so I was so excited for his shoot. I will never forget a hilarious thing that happened right before his session – Sam and I were waiting at the park for Kohler to arrive and we knew that we would be featuring his awesome Jeep at the end of his pictures, so when a Jeep pulled up toward us with a license plate that had part of his name on it, I had no doubt that it would be him arriving. I began enthusiastically waving and although we couldn’t see the driver clearly, he waved back, but kept on going. I sent Kohler’s mom a text saying that I think they may have just driven past us and she said “We’re not there yet!!” It was sheer coincidence that we were at the same place as someone driving a nearly identical Jeep!! Sam and I laughed so hard that our sides ached and a few minutes later, Kohler arrived with his parents. We continued to laugh all the way through his session until the sun began to set and then we were able to capture some awesome Jeep photos with beautiful sky color. Kohler was a trooper through it all and did anything that I would suggest without question.
Here is a little about what Kohler’s mom Jennifer had to say about his session with Moxie:
“Kohler’s session was great! This was our third senior to have a Moxie Experience. Each one was personalized and unique to each of our Seniors. Karen does an amazing job! We were going for a natural and outdoorsy shoot with Kohler’s pictures. We wanted him to feel comfortable enough to be himself and for that to be captured in the photos. That’s exactly what we got and love all of the photos! Karen always incorporates something of importance to the Senior into the shoot. For Kohler it was his Jeep and those are some of our favorite pictures. Karen is the best! She has a way of allowing her subject to be themselves and their personalities are captured on film. I love Moxie Design because Karen is the ultimate photographer for a senior shoot!”
One piece of advice that Jenn has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Choose one thing you are passionate about – whether it’s a sport, hobby, or item from a pair of shoes to a car. Karen will capture that passion.”
If Jenn could describe Kohler’s overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose “Impressive.”
Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, Kohler!!
