Quad City Senior Photos | Meet Sydney

Meet Sydney.
This beauty traveled all the way from the Des Moines area so that we could capture her senior photos!  Sydney showed up looking stunning and I knew that we were going to have a great session!  We started off at the park – where the flowers were absolutely beautiful and complimented Syd’s looks so well.  Sydney is an avid reader, so we were sure to incorporate a few books into her session and there was a perfect spot to capture those that we found under a willow tree.  From there, we headed to a lavender field to capture a shot of Sydney with her clarinet – and it turned out perfect!  We ended the night at the top of a parking garage where her grandpa met us with his awesome car! We were able to incorporate it into her photos and those turned out to be some of my favorites!

Here is what the beautiful Sydney had to say about her session with Moxie:
“I love Moxie Design because they are such positive people who make a new experience such a fun one!  My senior session was fantastic! I was hoping to get photos that captured my true self. I don’t feel I’m a very photogenic person, so I was worried I wouldn’t like the photos.  I love all of my photos! Karen and her husband made me feel at ease. They captured my true smile a number of times. My favorite part of the experience was traveling to different locations. I really enjoyed taking photos at the bridge and in the lavender field.  The most memorable part of the shoot was that at one location there were people who were getting ready to canoe, so we had to hurry to get those photos done. Karen and her husband are very nice people, they make you feel at ease when you might be a bit nervous. You will end up having the best time!

One piece of advice that she has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Before your session, make sure you think about the angles you want your photos taken.”  <– Super advice, Sydney!!

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

Thank you for coming to the QC so that I could capture your senior photos, Sydney!!
