Quad City Senior Pictures | Meet Gracen

Meet Gracen.
This Assumption beauty and I met up last fall for her senior pictures on a crazy warm day.  Gracen showed up in the most amazing look – complete with leather pants (during a heat wave with a real feel of 100)!  Having worked with Gracen’s siblings in the past, I was so excited to spend the afternoon with her and her amazing parents.  We started off downtown Davenport and then stopped at Vanderveer for some photos, which worked out perfectly with her outfit choices.  We ended the night on the Assumption athletic fields to capture Gracen’s soccer skills.  Gracen is such a natural beauty and has the most amazing hair, a gorgeous smile and this light and fire in her eyes that translated seamlessly into her photographs.

Here is a little about what Gracen had to say about her session with Moxie:
“I love Moxie Design because Karen surpasses all expectations!  My experience was awesome! Karen really personalized my shoot, made me feel comfortable, and I love all of the final images! I was able to do 4 different looks – a couple modern downtown and the some more traditional outside looks.  My biggest worry was that my pictures would look to overdone or too edited, but that was not the case.  I loved the final result. We had a difficult time choosing our favorites! The photos in the hat and orange outfit are my favorites which is funny because I didn’t even want to wear the hat. Use Moxie! Karen is the best!

One piece of advice that Gracen has for other seniors getting their photos taken?
“Take the time to plan for your session. Choose a variety of looks for your outfits and consider a prop or something that shows your personality.” <– AMAZING ADVICE, G!!

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

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