Quad City Senior Photography | Meet Tiara

Meet Tiara.
This Class of 2021 Moxie model and Davenport West class president is absolutely stunning.
Working with her over the past year has been so much fun (and I am still obsessing over her perfect eyebrows)!!   We met up for her senior session in the summer on a super hot day in the Village of East Davenport. There, we were able to capture some awesome shots at Lindsay Park as well as around all of the super cute Village buildings.  We then headed downtown Davenport to capture some mural art and then ended our night on top of a parking garage so that we could incorporate her dad’s motorcycle into some of her pictures.  Tiara, I have loved getting to know you and am so glad that you have been a part of our Moxie squad this year.  I have to give you a huge shout out as it seems that every time I post of a photo on social media, it gets featured by a national magazine.  Get it, girl!!

Here is a little about what Tiara had to say about her experience with Moxie:
“My senior photo experience was definitely over the top! Karen was able to make me so comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera! She made the session super easy and devoted her time to capturing the perfect pictures for me.  My favorite part of my Moxie Senior Experience was definitely enjoying every moment of it with Karen and Sam because they have the ability to make you seem like you’ve been friends for years while capturing stunning photos! I was aiming for a diverse look throughout my photo shoot and wanted to create something different. I knew including the motorcycle would be something totally different and also have sentimental meaning.  My biggest worry was not knowing how to pose for all of the photos but Karen showed me exactly how to pose! For locations, the East Village has a variety of opportunities for pictures so I thought it would be an ideal place, especially since Karen has an eye for creating the perfect shot even if it’s in an awkward place that you wouldn’t expect. For the motorcycle, I really wanted the skyline in the background and I knew the parking ramp would be perfect. The most memorable moment was definitely on the parking ramp with my dads motorcycle. It wasn’t something I had anticipated on doing for my senior photos but with unexpected events, it was the best idea ever!! I knew Karen would create the perfect shots.  My experience with Moxie Design was amazing because Karen made it so fun and effortless rather than stressing over the perfect outfits or shot.  Working with Moxie was definitely the best choice I made for my senior photos.  I love Moxie Design because Karen’s photos capture the most memorable time of your life.”

One piece of advice that Tiara has for other seniors getting their photos taken?  “One piece of advice is to try to have fun! The more fun you have, the more you’re able to connect and create the best pictures.”  Great advice, girl!!

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

Thanks for being awesome, Tiara!!  I can’t wait to see where your journey to the University of Arizona will lead you!
