Quad City Senior Pictures | Meet Reese

Meet Reese.
This beautiful PV High School senior and I got to work together quite a bit over the last year as she was a member of the Class of 2021 Moxie model squad. Reese is absolutely stunning and at the same time, super sweet and down to Earth.  Sam and I absolutely loved getting to know her and her awesome mom through all of our shoots over the course of 2020.  I could always count on Reese to try something silly or trust me when it came to locations.  We shot at a spot that was a little bit out of town and on the way there, I had scouted a really cool yellow building. When I asked if Reese would be down to stop there on our way back into town, there wasn’t a hesitation at all.   I ALWAYS tell people that being open will lead to some amazing photos and Reese is a perfect example of that. This Moxie girl has been featured nationally quite a few times with photos from our sessions and can also be spotted on an Eastern Iowa Community College commercial.

Here is a little about what Reese had to say about her session with Moxie:
“There aren’t enough positive adjectives to describe how great my experience was working with Karen and Sam.  It was a really great way to spend the day, it felt like I was with my friends taking pictures and we were laughing the whole time.  I had a lot of different outfits and looks in mind, and Karen found the perfect location that matched each of my outfits perfectly.  My biggest fear in regards to my session was the weather, but then it turned into a beautiful day. And of course Covid was a big worry because I wasn’t even sure if I could take my senior pictures but of course Karen found a way to make it happen.  My most memorable moment would be when I saw a butterfly and tried to pick up, and Karen captured the moment beautifully and then the butterfly flew away.  Karen is so fun to work with and you”ll create lasting memories, like when she had to ask someone who did not speak English if we could take a picture in front of their beautiful yellow building.  I love Moxie Design because Karen is the best!”

One piece of advice that Reese has for other seniors getting their photos taken?
“Loosen up, Karen knows what she’s doing and if you just have fun with it your pictures will reflect that.”

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

Thank you for letting us be a part of your senior year, Reese!!  I can’t wait to see what your future holds!
