Check out what my awesome clients are saying…

“My experience with Moxie Design was incredible.I really enjoyed getting to know Karen and how she can capture anything. I was very comfortable in my pictures and Karen got all my good angles!  My biggest fear was not looking like myself in my pictures. When going to Haus of Heir, I thought I wasn’t going to have much control over my makeup look. Come to find out, I had control over everything! They made me look amazing and my pictures turned out great. My favorite part of the Moxie Senior Experience was the reveal session. I never expected my pictures to turn out so well. My mom and I had a really hard time choosing the photos because they were all so good.   I would suggest that anyone interested in Moxie to give it a shot, you won’t regret it. I love Moxie Design because it showed the best of me.”

– Jessie D.

“My session was so. much. FUN! Karen was able to take all of my crazy ideas and turn them into a reality. She helped me feel comfortable in front of the camera, and that really shows in my photos! I am a quirky person, so I really wanted to communicate that in my photo shoot. I used my instruments and paint to showcase my talents. I love how my pictures screamed fun and creativity!  I was a bit worried about my shoot because I have a very different look than most of the other Moxie models. Instead of trying to change me, Karen took these differences and celebrated them! I am so glad I was able to be completely myself during my shoot.   I am so happy with the variety of locations I got to shoot at!   My favorite part of the whole session was when we pulled out the paint. It was so fun to fling paint everywhere and laugh. It was even more amazing to see the pictures that resulted from the fun. The pictures are lively, colorful, and perfectly me! My experience at Moxie Design was an absolute blast! It was all so awesome: from getting my hair and makeup done to getting to choose my own poses. I loved the uniqueness of everyone’s Moxie Design experience. Karen is the best at creating a perfect senior picture experience.”  – Emmalyn M.

“We were looking for someone who could capture Mary’s personality and beauty in pictures.  Karen was simply amazing! Mary was so calm and natural for the pictures. From the moment we met Karen, she hugged us like we were family she had not seen in awhile.  I was worried Mary would want to see every picture immediate after and delete every single one as the session went on, that did not happen. Karen and her assistant had Mary so calm and relaxed during the entire session. Mary’s pictures turned out simply stunning.  Our favorite part was seeing Mary’s pictures for the first time. They were beautiful, there was no way to choose. I also love seeing all the pictures that Karen takes of the other seniors. She makes everyone look like a model and they are simply just having fun.  I would highly recommend Karen and Moxie. She is a professional and truly cares about the seniors and the pictures. So worth it!!  I love Moxie Design because Mary’s pictures are simply stunning.” – Maggie P, Mary’s mom

“Karen was awesome. She really brought Zach out of his shell. She had the places to get his pictures done that fit his personality.  My biggest fear in regards to the photo shoot was that Zach would not smile. Karen had him not only smiling in photos but posing and laughing.  My favorite part of our Moxie Senior Experience was the great relationship that Zach built with Karen and his pictures turned out amazing.   If I were to tell my best friend about our experience with Moxie Design, I would say that it was amazing and worth every penny!  ” – Nicole S., Zach’s mom

” Karen is so amazing that I never want to go to other photographers. I’ve never felt so much confidence, this woman is magic with a camera.    Aside from the photos, I remember the way Karen made me feel, having confidence in me and the conversations we had. Kindness goes a long way and makes a lasting impression.  Girl, I know it looks like a lot of money but, it’s worth it!! The pictures are everything you want and more and will be used for more than senior pictures and will forever be loved by your parents.  I love Moxie Design because I can call Karen a friend, the results are exactly as paid for and so much more.”

“I loved my session so much! Karen is so fun to be with and she really makes you feel so good about yourself and boosts your confidence so much. I couldn’t be more happy with my senior session Karen really blew me away!  The looks I was going for were casual, dressy, and what I do at school (cheer) and Karen photographed those moments all so perfectly.   My favorite part was the reveal, I was so excited because I know Moxie puts in all the work and does what we were expecting.  If I were to tell my best friend about Moxie, I would say  -10/10.  Karen really is amazing she’s so happy and makes you feel like a goddess.”

“My senior session was amazing! Karen has a way of making everything fun and comfortable. I was never worried about being silly during my session because she made me feel like we’ve been friends forever.  I was worried my pictures would all turn out of me fake smiling but because of her amazingly awesome attitude and funny spirit I was laughing the entire time.  I was going for more of a clean and classic look for my pictures and Karen captured my look perfectly!  My favorite part of my shoot was how comfortable I felt and how beautiful my pictures turned out.   I love Moxie Design because Karen is incredible!” – Hannah E.

“I wanted my shoot to represent me and the things I like to do, but with a major touch of glam! This experience is something I can honestly accredit to changing my life. Shooting with Karen was my first modeling experience and she made me feel so confident and comfortable in front of the camera. After my session I took this feeling with me and was able to extend my modeling career and got signed with agency. None of the would have been possible without Moxie!  I made so many great memories, that all come back to me when I see the images we took!  The most memorable moment of my session would be the blue smoke bomb!!! We were using smoke bombs for some awesome pictures, but midway through a blue one exploded all over me!! It was a total mess but such a funny moment to look back on.  It was such a great opportunity to be apart of. Out of it I got some stunning senior pictures and memories and experience to last a lifetime.” -Kristina M.

” My senior photo experience was amazing! Karen made every location I wanted to use work. It was 90+ degrees on the day of my shoot and everyone was sweaty and miserable but Karen and her assistant knew how to make everything work and made me feel at ease. They even brought me cold water and a snack! It was amazing!!!! My favorite part of the day was getting to know Karen and her assistant – they were cracking me up – I had a great time. If you want to feel like anything is possible with your senior pictures and know that your photographer is going to listen to your ideas and carry them out, Moxie Design is where to go! I love Moxie Design because they made my ideas come to life!”  – Cole L.

“I just wanted to be myself and highlight my true personality in a way that it would be displayed in my photos.  My senior session was unforgettable! Karen made me feel confident and beautiful.  She’s absolutely amazing at what she does and I loved every single one of my images! I was worried I wasn’t going to know how to pose or what facial expressions to use. However, Karen made me feel confident and beautiful by making it an easy going and relaxed experience! My favorite part of my Moxie experience was gaining a level of confidence when getting photographed by Karen that I didn’t even know that I had!   The most memorable moment of my session was sharing laughs and getting to know Karen.  Working with Moxie Design is an incredible experience that you will never forget. Every single image is absolutely beautiful and you will leave your session feeling confident and amazing.”  – Makenzie

“ My session was a very enjoyable and positive experience for me, and I just had a really great time and was really comfortable with Karen. I’ve always been a little more camera shy, but I think the girls at Moxie really made me feel comfortable and beautiful in my own skin and it felt natural shooting with them.   My favorite part of the experience was all the laughs that I had, and all the jokes Karen made. I think I enjoyed all of it just because of how fun the atmosphere was.   Moxie Design does a great job making you feel comfortable and beautiful, and I would recommend everyone go to her for any senior photo shoots.  I love Moxie Design because of how fun Karen made my photo shoot and how she made everything just feel natural for me.” – Adrea A.

“My session was wonderful! Karen did a great job of boosting my confidence from behind the camera and making sure that I was completely comfortable with everything. I really feel as though she captured exactly what I envisioned during my session.  I loved when we were switching locations and Karen surprised me with my favorite drink and snack!  I would recommend Moxie Design to anyone in a heartbeat! It is a blast and you get a memorable experience as well as outstanding pictures to remember forever.   I love Moxie Design because my pictures are unique to me- they are unlike any other senior pictures!” – Abby M.

“My senior photo shoot with Moxie design was amazing. Karen did an awesome job making me feel comfortable in front of the camera.  My biggest fear was not knowing how to pose in my photos but Karen and her team were great about offering suggestions. Karen and her team really got to know me before my photo shoot and had great ideas for my overall photo experience.  My favorite part is the fun we had laughing and talking throughout the shoot. Choose Moxie Design for your senior photos, you won’t be disappointed!”   – Madelyn M.

Many of my friends had taken their senior pictures with Karen, and had nothing but positive things to say about working with her. To say my standards were high is an understatement, but to say she exceeded them is an even bigger understatement. It was storming outside while I was getting my hair and makeup done so I was so nervous. When Karen arrived at Haus of Heir she made sure to tell me everything would work out and if we had to reschedule it would be no problem. Once we started taking pictures and talking with Karen and Sydney I had so much fun. Her and Sydney both gave only positive vibes.They are both so helpful in making sure you are comfortable in front of the camera and picking poses that represent your personality. I love Moxie Design because Karen and her staff are genuine, kind, and the best in the business.”  – Lauren G.

“I really enjoyed working with Moxie for my senior photos! I felt comfortable during the shoot and had a lot of fun at the locations of the photos. I was aiming for a more glam, but natural look.  Karen was super easy to talk to and was amazing during the whole process.  My biggest worry about the photo shoot was whether I looked good, since I couldn’t see the shots. The outcome, however, was amazing and am thrilled with how the pictures turned out! My favorite part of the Moxie Senior Experience was being able to go to the different locations and being able to incorporate some of my ideas into the shoot.  I would say that the most memorable moment of my session was dancing in the all green pathway in the park for the camera.  Moxie Design allows you to be truly you and express yourself in these shoots. Karen made every aspect of the shoot comfortable!  I love Moxie Design because Karen made me feel glamorous for the day!”

“My senior photo session with Karen was such a fun and awesome experience. The outcome of my experience and photo quality was unbelievable. I have pretty high standards when it comes to seeing pictures of myself and Karen did not let me down! I love how outgoing Karen is and how smooth the entire day went. I appreciate her organization, but also her ability to make the experience fun. My ultimate favorite part about my Moxie Senior Experience was probably the feedback I got back afterwards. When I post my senior pictures and receive positive feedback, it makes me feel good about myself and then I can talk about Karen’s talent!”  – Leah A.

“I knew I wanted a photographer that had crisp, bright photos. It was important to match my personality and to have my pictures reflect who I am. I also wanted to include some of my hobbies including art and my adventuresome spirit. What an awesome experience! Karen was fabulous from the start being very patient and timely with questions. She also provided great suggestions and feedback on outfits and accessories. Karen made it a very fun evening and took time to get to know me and what I liked. It was amazing to get to see the magic from her camera and the eye she has for different backgrounds and angles. I am not very comfortable in front of the camera so I was worried if I would know how to pose or that I would just look odd. Karen was patient throughout the night. She didn’t seem in a rush at all and you could tell on that afternoon and evening, I was her focus and priority. She even had my favorite lemonade and a Kit Kat for a mid-session break. I was so excited at the end of the night and could not wait to see all of the pictures at my reveal session. Karen really instills confidence in you throughout your shoot. As the evening progressed, I quickly relaxed and it was so much more fun than I had ever expected. We laughed and giggled throughout the evening and she was so positive and complimentary. Karen clearly cares about her clients and really makes you feel special. It was more than just snapping a few pictures.  You cannot go wrong with Moxie Design! I love Moxie Design because Karen brought out my inner model and on that day I felt absolutely stunning – inside and out.”  – Adia R.

“My senior experience with Moxie Design was phenomenal! I felt so comfortable in front of the camera and Karen is so much fun to be with!  I really wanted to showcase who I am and what I like to do. I was so worried about not knowing what to do in front of the camera, but Karen’s ideas were so fun and unique.  I can’t even choose a favorite part, my whole Moxie Senior Experience was one I will never forget! The memories we made are priceless! The laughs and giggles we had were probably the best part! Karen’s ideas are so fun and she is so friendly!!  I love Moxie Design because Karen made me feel so confident and comfortable in front of the camera!” – Brooke L.

“I was going for the serious and sophisticated look, with a hint of a goofy and fun side in some of the other photos. I feel like that really reflects how I live my life.  At first, when I showed up I was feeling apprehensive, but with Karen’s inviting personality it made it easy to relax and feel natural. Also, I wasn’t very fond of the idea of getting my photos taken. But, it was a really enjoyable experience and I would honestly do it again.  My favorite part of my senior session was that it didn’t even really feel like a photo shoot.  It was so laid back and chill that it made it easy to go from place to place and from clothing change to clothing change. Everything had a melodic flow to it.  The most memorable moment is when we were doing the first shoot when my dog wasn’t quite cooperating at first. We tried to get her to sit, but she was more worried about the smells in the air. So, laughing about my dog with Karen was an enjoyable and funny ice breaker.  Karen was wonderful.  She has the most outgoing and loving personality.  It made the session really easy going and fun.  Also, her work is phenomenal.  I love Moxie Design because Karen puts you at ease.  She is an awesome photographer!”  – Seth B.

There’s no other way to say this: Moxie Design is the best. Karen treated me to a personalized experience, all accustomed to my taste, style, and ideas. I was so amazed with the pictures, for she seemed to capture me in the exact ways that I imagined. Karen and her team make you feel like a celebrity, like a supermodel. Karen’s photography captures the beauty of anyone and everyone. But most importantly, the experience you have with Moxie Design is one that you’ll make memories with. I couldn’t have imagined having my pictures taken by anyone else. Thank you, Moxie Design! – Jordan F.

My experience through Moxie Design was AMAZING! The day was so much more than I could have ever asked for! From the ladies at the hair and make-up salon making me feel gorgeous, to Karen and her husband’s mad camera skills, to the wonderful, fun, and friendship-forming conversations with Karen throughout the process. Every bit of it was tailored to my interests, and because of that, each and every shot was unique in showing my personality. I feel like a model every time I look back at my photos because Karen is so extremely talented at finding the perfect angle with the perfect lighting and the perfect background to make each of her clients feel absolutely stunning!  KAREN IS A WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING AND AN EXTREMELY GREAT PERSON TO WORK WITH! I HIGHLY recommend going through Moxie for high quality senior photos tied to day full of great memories!  – Emma K.

“*****5 OUT OF 5 STARS*****

Calling all seniors and future seniors. If you are looking for an experienced photographer to take your senior pictures you MUST check out Karen at Moxie Design.

She gets a full 5 out of 5 Stars from our family.

We had the best time taking Tayler’s pictures. Karen not only became our photographer but she became our friend. She wants to know your senior before she sets out to do their photos and is up for anything.

Karen stood in the blazing heat inside a barn that must have been 110 degrees, laid in a field of crickets, climbed up walls, waded through creeks, climbed barbed wire fences,and hung lace curtains in an open field for us.

We didn’t just have Tayler’s senior pictures taken we made memories and friends. To us it was a bonus that Tayler’s pictures turned out so beautifully. Seriously check her out. You will not be disappointed!!”  – Christa A.

________________________________________________________

I think anyone can take a picture, but it takes an artist to really capture who a person is. Karen is an artist. Her pictures are great, but that’s not all. She really makes people feel comfortable during a photo session. I think because her subjects are so relaxed, the pictures turn out amazing. My daughter’s session was postponed several times because of rain. It finally got to the point where we just had to take then inspite of the rain. She went out that day and scouted locations that were covered. She even bought a cute umbrella that Kennedy could hold in a few shots. They are some of my favorites. Karen goes above and beyond! She clearly loves her work and you will too! – Sharon L.

“Karen, I seriously cannot stop looking at my pictures even though they’re from 2 months ago! I can’t get over how amazing your images turn out and how good I feel about myself in them. I just had to email you because last night I had a dream that I became a famous model and I had you take all of my pictures. I told my mom “I wish I could have Karen take every picture of me ever!” Ahhh you’re amazing! I’ve told everyone I know to get their pictures done by you when they are seniors.”  -Sydney

“My experience with Moxie design was amazing! I loved every second of it and didn’t want it to end.  I wanted a simple, yet timeless look for my pictures that I could look back on and still love in the future.  Karen makes you feel so comfortable –  I was worried that I would look awkward and stiff in my pictures, but Karen made sure I was relaxed and that I looked my best! The most memorable moment from my session was climbing up a steep hill, through thick grass to capture an AMAZING sunset backdrop! I love Moxie Design because Karen makes you feel as though you have been friends forever and her artistic vision is amazing!”  – Anitza

“My overall senior photo session experience was amazing! I had such a fantastic time – one I will never forget. I had fun with Karen, and she truly made me feel comfortable. I wish I could go back because I had such a great time, it was truly one of the best moments of my senior year.  My biggest fear was that I would look stupid in my photos and I was hesitant about posing, but Karen never led me astray. The photos turned out amazing, proving my worries were all in my head. My favorite part was getting to take photos with an airplane. The light was shining perfectly and Karen was able to get some really awesome shots. When I looked at the photos, I felt like I was looking at my future.  I have definitely already told my friends about this amazing experience. I said how they have to go to Karen, because she is simply the best. I also discussed how I was made to feel comfortable–I never felt awkward going into weird poses, you just have to trust Karen.   Although I do not consider myself to be anywhere near being a model, Karen made me feel like a true beauty queen the day of my session.”  – Allison

“My senior session was incredible!  Karen provided such a unique experience and was so down to earth.  I am so grateful for the personalized experience.   My favorite part of the senior experience was being pampered. Karen arranged for hair and makeup to be done and then provided hours of shooting.  The most memorable moment was my reveal session. I was so anxious to see the end result and very appreciative for the pictures she captured.  Moxie Design is the photographer to use. Karen provides unique poses and has several props that she hand picks to match your outfits and personality.  I love Moxie Design because they captured once in a lifetime pictures perfectly.”  – Ashley

“Karen was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She truly made me feel like a model. She even brought my favorite drink and candy, which came in handy in the heat! I recommend to her to any senior looking for a photographer.   Karen managed to get every outfit change and location done before sunset!  I loved seeing the teaser photos on Facebook – I would check my phone constantly waiting to see my images.   My favorite moment was when we took pictures with glitter. I LOVE glitter and I had a blast playing with glitter and still found it all over me the next few days!  If you wanted the BEST senior pictures possible you should contact Karen immediately! I know you will feel comfortable in front of the camera and not have a single image you wouldn’t like.   I love Moxie Design because they helped my senior photo vision come to life.”  – Sara

“Moxie Design is wonderful! My family and I absolutely love working with Karen and her team – you guys are a huge blessing for so many people! You have such a great talent, and thank you for making high school seniors feel so special and confident!   I was afraid I would be very critical of myself in the pictures after, but I love each and every photo as I feel so beautiful!  My favorite part of the Moxie Senior Experience was the being able to have absolutely gorgeous pictures taken that are unique. Moxie design has a set apart style that differs from other Senior photographers and provides different and beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing your talent!  The most memorable moment of my session was just being silly with Karen and her team as I danced along my the riverside in my dress and heels! If I were to tell my best friend about my experience with Moxie Design, I would say that I 500% recommend! Karen and her team are so sweet and accommodating. If you want the pictures you keep forever to be the best quality, do them with Karen!  I love Moxie Design because I gained confidence from feeling beautiful inside and out.”  – Hailey

“I really wanted photos that captured who I was as a person and I think Karen did a great job of making that happen while also making me feel comfortable. I loved that I had the opportunity to shoot at my favorite coffee shop and how Karen made the experience very versatile and personable.  Overall, my senior experience was the best possible way to begin my senior year. Not only did I gain self-confidence while learning how to pose and take pictures, but I earned an excellent group of friends whom I met the first group shoot and still contact every single day.  Karen went above and beyond my expectations and made me feel like a rockstar in my own skin. She took the time ask me questions about my personal life, so that not only made me feel like I was shooting with a genuine human, but also a friend.   My biggest fear going into the photo shoot was that I wouldn’t be satisfied with my images. I had never had anyone do my makeup before but the team at Haus of Heir only added to my high self esteem that very VERY rainy morning. I was also afraid that the less than fortunate weather would ruin my day- but I ended up loving ALL of my photos and also all of my time spent under an umbrella that my mom or Max would hold; making me feel like a true queen.  My favorite part of my Moxie Senior Experience was stepping out of my comfort zone and realizing that I loved who that fearless and confident girl was. My life hasn’t been the same since, and I owe it all to Karen.  I love Moxie Design because Karen does an excellent job of giving girls and guys an opportunity to feel like a rockstar… even if it’s just for one day.” – Deonna

“If you are looking for a customized session that is all about you and what your interests are, then Karen at Moxie Design is the photographer for you. Karen takes the time to get to know you before the shoot by asking you questions, having you send pictures of your outfits and asking where you would like the photo shoots to take place. Karen also has tons of accessories that you can use to make your outfit complete or add that extra wow factor. You don’t even have to stress over doing your hair and makeup because you get to have that professionally done. I guarantee you will love all the photos Karen takes!  I love Moxie Design because Karen really makes the session all about you and captures who you really are through her talented photography skills.”  – Sarah

“My senior photo session experience was more than I could’ve asked for. I had a great time with Karen and I felt like I’d known her my whole life by the third shot! It was a great time and I definitely wish I could do it all over again.  My biggest fear was that I would not like any of my pictures. I never really liked seeing pictures of myself, let alone on social media, but Karen performed miracles and I loved not one, but every. single. photo she took!  My favorite part of the Moxie Senior Experience was just getting to know Karen while taking pictures.  The most memorable moment of my session was how pretty I felt the entire time. Karen was  flooding me with compliments, and I felt like the prettiest girl ever. They make you feel so special and unique in your own way and I can not thank them enough for that!!   I love Moxie Design because the pictures are amazing, and the people are even better!” – Hailey

________________________________________________________

“I was going for a look that would show my bubbly and bright personality. I wanted pictures I could look back to in the future and still love. Karen did a wonderful job portraying these things.   My shoot was 3 weeks before school started and it was a great start to my senior year. Karen made my session absolutely fantastic! It was substantial due to her making me comfortable, beautiful, and confident. She is extremely good at what she does and you can tell she loves doing it! She is a genuine person and is so inspiring. She works very hard to make your ideas a reality! I had multiple props and ideas and they turned out exactly how I wanted. My family and I went to my premier revel session and no one could just pick one favorite. So of course we had to buy them all! It is 6 months later and I find myself looking back at my photos because I am still astonished by Karen’s work.  It was a hot day in July with a high of 95 degrees. I was very worried what my makeup and hair would be ruined but the final results looked amazing!  I stepped out of a my comfort zone and it was well worth it!  It was so fun and positive. The day felt all about me and they made me feel like a supermodel! My hair and makeup was done perfectly by the team at Haus of Heir. It made me feel super confident along with Karen and Max’s positive comments.   I love Moxie Design because Karen does everything possible to make you feel so confident and special during your shoot day.” – Maddie

“I wanted a session that wasn’t just another ordinary senior picture session. I wanted something that reflected who I am as a person.I love the pictures Karen captured because I am truly happy in them.  I LOVED my senior photo session!! I found confidence that I didn’t know I had, and I think it is because Karen allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and be my true self. She gave suggestions for poses that allowed me to do this, and all of them ended up looking great. She went above and beyond to capture the perfect shot, and I couldn’t be more happy with the results.  Karen made it so easy and fun, and I felt like I could do whatever I wanted without any judgement and the pictures turned out great because of that.  My favorite part of my Moxie experience is I got to be myself, and I felt comfortable doing it!   I felt beautiful and comfortable in my own skin, and I found confidence that I never knew I had. I actually grew as a person after my senior session because I discovered to care less about what others think of me and instead focus on what I think of myself. I don’t know how long it would have taken me to figure that out if it weren’t for the amazing and talented Moxie members.” – Brenna

“Our favorite part of Alex’s session was how friendly you were. It felt like we were just out with a friend taking pictures, not with someone we just met. I was very impressed how you figured out how to get a real smile from Alex. Alex really liked all his images, but he really LOVES all the football images.  I would recommend Moxie Design to my best friends. I would tell them that Karen was so much fun to work with. She captured images that were better than I could have imagined by taking our ideas of what we wanted & put her on flair & style to the images. The images she captured are unique, unlike all other senior pictures. Karen is truly talented, you can tell she is passionate about photography & loves what she does.” – Faith F.

“When I first contacted Karen about a photo shoot, I was a little nervous about going because I have never been a huge fan of having so many pictures taken of me. My worries were quickly replaced with excitement as Karen was so nice and open about when and where to take the photos. Right from the beginning, she was professional and very easy going. She made sure I was comfortable with the location and time of the shoot and made sure she arranged around my busy schedule before worrying about her own. When it came time to meet up and take the photos, I was so excited to finally be doing something I was so nervous about before. She was very happy and kind when I met her at the site and she made things so easy when we began. She asked me some questions about myself that made me open up to her very easily without feeling like I was being bombarded with so many questions right away. When we continued going to different locations it felt like we had been friends for years due to the easy conversation we had in the car. After it was all over, I was sad it had ended so quickly (like they say, time flies when you’re having fun). Karen was very quick with editing and getting the pictures to me, and they turned out amazing! Each picture had a unique feel to it, and they were perfect. I did not know someone could make the simplest things look so fabulous in a picture. I loved showing them to my friends, and they too were impressed with the great quality. I would love to do another photo shoot with Karen and I hope to share her business with all of my friends and family so that they can have as wonderful of an experience as I did. Thank you so much Karen!” – Talia S.

“I had so much fun on my shot! Karen is an amazing photographer as well as person! I was nervous getting my pictures done at first but she made me feel comfortable right away.

“I love Moxie Design because you captured my sons personality.  The shoot was actually fun – you made it fun.  Jackson was at ease, laughing, able to be himself, and felt good about himself.  In turn he looked so handsome in all his shots.  Added bonus the quality of the pictures are better than any we had had done.  Unique shots and the details in lighting, etc make the difference!”  – Jennifer R.

“I really wanted to capture Mikey’s personality in the shots – his love for football, his general loving nature.  This is the second time we used Moxie Design for our children’s senior photos. I can’t even imagine going anywhere else! Karen takes the time to really prep the photo shoot by getting to know the student, and understanding the overall goals of the session. I have never known a photographer who so beautifully captures the essense of the subject.  Karen’s engaging personality which immediately relaxes the student and enables her to get the very best out of the shoot.  Karen was kind enough to squeeze us in after a cancellation in the fall. Mikey really wanted to do it then. We ran to Augustana after his football practice at Alleman, and were blessed with a fabulous early evening. Extra bonus – Mikey will be attending Augie and playing football, so his photos on the field are extra special.  Karen really captures the essence of the subject and the photos are beautiful and perfect every time.”  – Judy S.

“Karen is a great photographer who loves what she does!  It shines through in her work.  She has an unlimited amount of energy and enthusiasm.  She’s really nice and puts you completely at ease, which helped my son, Austin, to be himself.  She’s very flexible, comes prepared, and works hard to give you exactly what you want.  Her shots, angles, poses, expressions, creativity and cropping/digital editing are really good.  Versatility and multiple locations gave us various looks and back grounds and a huge variety to choose from.  She did such excellent job on my youngest son’s senior pictures that making choices to narrow it down was very difficult – I have so many favorites! I had 3 kids that had 3 different photographers for senior pictures, and Moxie Design was my favorite.”  – Chris R.

“Our favorite part of the session was a multitude of things:  Your kindness, patience, professionalism, sense of humor and (in my opinion/favorite) that you made Michael feel very confident and comfortable. I like your style!  I have tried to tell as many people as possible about you!  The first thing out of my mouth is, you have got to go with Karen at Moxie Design, she freaking rocks!!  Her style is flawless and her pictures capture a “take your breath away” look!  I love that her studio/office is in her home because you don’t feel like a customer, you feel like a friend.  Karen takes time to make sure you are not just happy but excited about your photos. More important when a teenage boy says, “she’s pretty freaking cool”  I think that just said it all!! I would recommend you for any event, this definitely was your calling to do this!”   – Patty S.

“Working with Karen of Moxie design for my son’s senior photo session was simple, seamless, and a pleasure start to finish.  The information and questionnaire Karen provided prior to the shoot was professional and really helped her to tailor Parker’s session to his interests and activities.  The day of the shoot was nothing but a pleasure for myself and Parker as Karen quickly charms you with her personality, wit and knowledge of what it takes to get the most from the site and subject of the photo shoot.  She quickly charmed Parker into being natural with his surroundings and being photographed.  The resulting gallery presented promptly was very artistic, thoughtful and reflected the personality of my son on many levels perfectly.  It was hard to select the pictures for purchase because there were so many good ones.  It was nothing but a pleasure to work with Moxie Design and Karen who is a woman of so very much energy, talent, and artistic vision.” – Paul H.

We had such a great time with you!  My favorite part of Erin’s session was watching her have fun.  She was anticipating the day – shopping for just the right outfits and having the opportunity to feel special and pampered.  She loved getting her hair and make-up done (she looked like her beautiful self, they did a wonderful job).  You put her right at ease and within a few minutes she was laughing and talking.  I tell my friends how thoughtful you were, how you took time to get to know Erin, and how you really cared about she felt and what we both wanted from the photos.  I tell them how your creative eye lead to beautiful photos that our family treasures, that senior pictures are more about showing her personality rather than looking like everyone else.  – Julie R.

“I loved that Karen made it personal and fun! She really tries to get to know you before the shoot so she can personalize your experience. She also let me bring my dog! Couldn’t ask for a better shoot!  I really just wanted to be outdoors, but didn’t want it to look staged. Karen had some great suggestions for places where we could do just that.  The entire experience was so memorable – from having my hair and makeup done to the different shoot locations to the reveal session. Karen is top notch and creates a unique senior experience!  I was worried that I wouldn’t look good in the photos – but when we went to the reveal – EVERY picture was great – it was so hard to choose between them all!  I love Moxie Design because Karen thinks of everything! She is professional and prepared for anything!”  – Emily C.

“My experience with Karen was amazing! I think everyone is nervous before getting their photos taken, but Karen totally puts you at ease and makes you feel so confident in front of the camera and she makes posing so easy. She’s also so much fun to work with and I loved getting to be a model for her a few times.  Before my shoot I was so nervous that wouldn’t be happy with how I looked in my images but when I actually got to see them I was blown away. I was surprised that I actually loved them all!  My favorite part of the entire experience was how well Karen gets to know you. It makes your images so much better because Karen knows exactly what you want. The most memorable moment of my session was Karen bringing my favorite candy and pop. It’s another way that she gets to know you makes you so much more comfortable.  Getting your photos taken by Moxie Design is a really special experience that you shouldn’t miss out on during your senior year.  I love Moxie Design because they take the time to give you outstanding memories that no one else can.”  -Kinsey H.

“Karen and her crew made my senior photo session memorable. They made me feel totally comfortable while always working so hard to find the best shot. Even as we were fighting darkness she worked tirelessly in the warm humid weather to get that final photo which was one I particularly wanted and it turned out just perfect!!  I was fearful of how the weather would affect my photo shoot. It was very humid but Karen had face wipes we used to blot my face when I got sweaty. We looked for shade or partial shade as well and everything turned out awesome.   I loved that many of my life passions, such as fashion, shopping and cheerleading, were expressed in my senior photos. My Moxie Senior Experience photos truly tell my story.  Karen and crew made what could be a stressful time so much fun. The reveal at her home was the icing on the cake when I saw the spectacular outcome. Bravo!!  Moxie was voted #1 for a reason because they truly are the best.  I love Moxie Design because they made by senior photo shoot something I will never forget.” – Bridget F.

“Nick and I had a great time! He was going for relaxed feel with no props and his session was an opportunity to let Nick shine.   I think Nick was not comfortable at the thought of posing and being in front of the camera but Karen made him feel comfortable and let him do what was natural for him!  Karen and her crew were very friendly and made Nick feel very comfortable. It truly felt like a modeling shoot and it gave Nick the confidence to be himself and have a little fun with it.  I love Moxie Design because Karen made the shoot comfortable and the pictures are truly amazing!” – Amy S.

“My senior experience was amazing! It exceeded my expectations!  My favorite part was how fun and relaxed I felt. I didn’t feel that there was any pressure to take a good photo, because I felt like I could be myself around Karen.  The most memorable part of my session was during my birthday shoot when Karen brought a cupcake with a candle and a confetti gun. I wasn’t expecting that! It was a nice surprise.  I would recommend Moxie Design because Karen actually designs the shoot around who you are and brings out your personality.   I love Moxie Design because Karen took the best pictures of me ever and gave me the best photo session experience I’ve ever had.” – Rebekah K.

“The overall experience was unbelievable. I was very anxious going into the shoot and was even anxious for the first frames. However, I began to feel comfortable because Karen really showed that she cared and wanted me to love my photos.  My biggest fear about the photo shoot was that I was not going to look pretty in the photos. The outcome was quite the opposite. I have received so many positive comments about my photos. Karen really boosted my self esteem when she told me that I was a natural in front of the camera. I felt special and beautiful by the end of the day.   The most memorable moment of my session was when I saw my first picture during the shoot. I was stunned at how well it turned out. It definitely boosted my self esteem.  It was an amazing experience was amazing and that I felt comfortable by the end of the session (which is very rare for me to feel comfortable). It is really an individualized day and something I will not forget.  I love Moxie Design because Karen made me feel special.” – Abby M.

“My senior experience with Moxie Design was exciting and fun and the day and places for the session were amazing. This session could have never been better.  My big fear was not knowing how act during a photo being taken…The outcome with advice of Karen were easy and made each shot beautiful….I was absolutely excited!  My favorite part of my senior session was how comfortable it was and getting to share it with my family and friend along with paisley my dog.  Karen was amazing, she not only took breath taking photos but was able to give advice on every detail of the shoot with awesome places to create some of the best pictures very taken that will be etched into memory for the rest of my life.  I love Moxie Design because the pictures were as beautiful as the experience.” – Kennady N.

“My overall senior photo session experience was amazing! Karen is one of the sweetest people I have ever met.  I’m a very shy person and usually don’t like having my photo taken so I was worried that I was going to be uncomfortable taking the pictures. After starting the shoot I felt the absolute opposite. Karen really made me feel comfortable and she made it so much fun it didn’t feel like it was just a senior photo shoot.   My favorite part of my Moxie Senior Experience was how comfortable and beautiful Karen made me feel especially after seeing my pictures. Based on the outfits I had chosen, I wanted locations that matched them. My first outfits were floral and bright colors so my first location was a park. Matching the theme of my clothing with the nature of the park. My last outfits were going out type looks so I chose Downtown Davenport as my last location. Karen knew so many great places downtown.  The most memorable part of my session was how much fun I had, the laughs, and how Karen makes such a genuine attempt to really get to really get to know you and make things personal!    If I were to tell my best friend about my experience with Moxie Design I would tell them how much fun it is and how Karen really makes the shoot all about you and what you want your pictures to be like. I would also tell them I would recommend Moxie to anyone!” – Lauren

My overall experience was everything I envisioned and more. Karen made me feel like a princess and took her power of photography to the next level. She made my tennis shoot feel as if I was being photographed for a sports magazine. It was one of the best three hours of my life.  My fear going into the shoot was me being awkward. I’m not used to being in front of the camera, or posing for that matter. In reality, the shoot was super fun and memorable. I became more confident with each photo and the results definitely proved that.  My favorite part of the Moxie Senior Experience was working with Karen and her very sweet intern. They made each photo memorable in every location. I loved taking my tennis photos, Karen should consider working for Sports Illustrated with her action shots talent!  The most memorable moment of the session was the changing room tent to-go contraption Karen had. I couldn’t believe how much it actually accommodated everything!  If I were to tell my best friend about Moxie, I would say that she will have the time of her life working with Moxie. She will feel beautiful and important throughout the entire session. Karen is so down to earth and welcoming to all clients.” Lily F.

” My photo session wasn’t like anything I was expecting, it was way better! Karen went to the extreme to make sure my session was the best I could experience. She made sure that I was comfortable and having a good time. All the ideas she had were unique and creative and I loved every one! I was worried that I wouldn’t know what poses to do and what was right or wrong. But as soon as we started the shoot, Karen was quick to give me some poses to do, and it was so easy! I am grateful that she had go to poses because otherwise I would have felt uncomfortable.  I have so many favorite parts of my senior session, but one of them was when I got to have my makeup and hair done by Haus of Heir. I love how that is apart of the senior experience. I felt confident that this shoot would turn out great, and it did! It’s awesome that Karen has a connection with them, because they do an amazing job.  I really wanted to be in a park setting because I love being outdoors and I love flowers. Karen knew exactly where to go and what I needed to make sure I got what I was looking for.  Karen coming up with craziest, yet amazing ideas for my pictures is definitely one of the best things about my shoot. She also made it easy and personal so I could feel comfortable. She did such an amazing job from providing my favorite snack, to producing the best photos. This is something I will never forget and I thank Karen so much for it all – I felt like a model for the day!  I love Moxie Design because they will do anything to make sure your experience is the best it can be.” – Sam

“My senior session with Moxie was fantastic! Karen was really fun to work with, and really made the effort to capture my true personality.  I was going for something that was light-hearted and true to my personality.  I really appreciated Karen’s expertise in the field and her advice whenever had questions in regards to the photos and prints after the session.  She always answered my emails promptly and professionally.  I love Moxie Design because Karen makes it very personal and fun!” – Savannah R.

“I loved every minute of the process.  I was worried about not having the shots that I pictured in my head or it wasn’t going to be as great at I thought it would be but Karen went above and beyond what I hoped and dreamed.  I had most of my pictures at Pinnacle Country Club and I wanted that location because my only must haves for my senior pictures were in a field and a bridge which is what Pinnacle had. Then the Moline soccer bowl.  The most memorable part of my session was the feeling that I got when she was taking my pictures – it was wonderful.  I love Moxie Design because Karen made sure that she got to know me and didn’t treat me like just another client but a friend.  Karen made sure I was going to get the senior pictures that I had always wanted!” – Samantha

“We were looking for an athletic, serious and confident look for Collin’s senior photo shoot.  I was a little worried about a long photo shoot! From my experience of having a son is boys do not like to get their picture taken like girls. From the 1st minute the session started I could tell he relaxed and within no time he was having a lot of fun! Karen really knew how to capture his serious side and made sure that she also captured his great smile! The photos turned out fantastic what a great experience! Such great memories!  Our favorite part was all of the opportunities to find different looks with his shoot and to capture different moods.  The most memorable moment of Collin’s session was how Karen just took over and made my son so confident – and he truly looked like he was enjoying every minute.  If I were to tell my best friend about our experience I would say that it was worth every penny.  I love Moxie Design because of Karen!” – Tracie R.
