This Alleman senior and I met up last fall and I was so excited for her session! Kylie had sent me photos of her looks and some ideas on what she wanted and there was just so much creative energy going into her shoot that I knew we would not only have a blast but capture some stunning images. When Kylie arrived at the park, she looked GORGEOUS! She had on this amazing red skirt that had an editorial vibe and we had so much fun from the minute that we started taking the first photo. After we wrapped a couple of looks, we headed down to the water, where we walked into the middle of the river via a sandbar and some very strategically placed rocks. While we were in the river, there was a water snake that popped his head up and I think all of us screamed for about fifteen seconds. Kylie didn’t let it affect her for a minute – she even sat down on a log right where the water snake had been. After our adventure in the river, we headed downtown Davenport where Kylie’s last two looks blew me away. She had pink shoes that perfectly matched her earrings for one look and the second, she put red lipstick on, that matched her accessories. We were capturing such amazing shots so quickly that we had extra time to experiment with different ideas. We have shot on the top of this particular parking garage dozens of times over the years, but never have we gone all the way to the very tip top, until Kylie’s session. We scored a few amazing angles overlooking the entire Quad City area from there and they were some of my favorite shots from her shoot. Kylie has this natural kindness to her, and is so easy to be around. We shared lots of laughs and had the most amazing afternoon.
Here is a little about what Kylie had to say about her session with Moxie:
“My overall senior photo session experience was more than I could have ever imagined. Karen did an amazing job at making me feel comfortable and confident by positively pointing out small things about me that I myself have never even noticed. Karen is super outgoing and very easy to talk to. It felt like my best friend was taking my photos. I was going for a lot of different looks, but mostly dresses, in which, Karen was able to capture with the most perfect scenery. My biggest fear was not being satisfied with my pictures. I am very picky about my angles and Karen made sure to perfectly capture each and every angle of mine. My pictures turned out insane. My favorite part my Moxie senior experience was the experience in general. The most memorable part of my session was Karen being so willing to try all the cool ideas I had, even the ones I came up with right on the spot. I have and will continue to recommend people to go through her. From the very beginning to the end everything was perfect. Not a single flaw. I love Moxie Design because you can truly see the passion that Karen has for photography.”
One piece of advice that Kylie has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “One piece of advice for others seniors getting their photos taken is to be yourself and don’t feel uncomfortable, the pictures will come out so much better!”
If she could describe her overall senior session experience in one word, she would choose “amazing.”
Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, beautiful girl!!
