Rockridge Senior Pictures | Meet Amelia

Meet Amelia.
This Rockridge senior and I have had the chance to work together a lot over the past year as she is a current Moxie model.  Amelia is one of those people that has such great energy, it’s just wonderful to be around her. Her smile is contagious and she is absolutely beautiful to boot.  We started her session downtown and I absolutely LOVED all of her outfits (hello flower pants, I’m still obsessing over you)!  Then we headed to her family’s farm where we were able to capture some stunning images. We got to meet her two sweet pups and Kylie and I fell in love with both of them. We ended up on the golf course at sunset, sharing laughs as we drove around the course with a specific amount of time before we had to be back with the golf carts.

Here is a little about what Amelia had to say about her session with Moxie: “My senior photo session experience was absolutely amazing! Taking such important photos can be nerve-racking and even stressful, but Karen and Kylie took that all away! Karen made me feel like a natural in front of the camera, even though I wouldn’t describe myself that way. It was a day full of great memories, laughs, and excitement that I will always remember. All of my looks were so different, and Karen did such an amazing job making each one unique. My looks swayed from boho to farm to sports, and they all turned out perfect! I was worried I wouldn’t like my senior pictures (nothing to do with the Moxie Design.) I didn’t want my pictures to look like everyone else’s, and I worried I wouldn’t be confident enough in them to share them. But now when my friends ask to see my senior photos I am so excited to show them off, and the app makes it so easy to keep them on my phone. My favorite part of the experience was a moment when we had just started shooting on my senior picture day. I felt like Karen and Kylie helped me break through and become confident. Karen had given me a hat I would usually feel goofy in, my hair was blowing in the wind, and they were both hyping me up. I knew from then on the session would be amazing and my pictures would turn out great! I have a lot of favorites, so it is hard to choose, but one that stands out is with both of my dogs, who Karen was able to somehow trick into smiling at the camera perfectly! 🙂  One of the most memorable parts of my session was when we arrived to the golf course close to sunset. It would’ve been easier to just stay near the club house. But Karen went above and beyond to get us a golf cart and drive the three us around to get the best location with the sun. It was such a sweet moment and a great way to end my session! You should take your senior pictures with Moxie Design! You are guaranteed to love them, and not only get outstanding pictures but gain confidence and an awesome role model!  I love Moxie Design because my pictures and experience were equally amazing!”

One piece of advice that Amelia has for other seniors getting their photos taken? “Remember to get a pedicure if you’re wearing sandals, I forgot lol!”

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

Thank you for being a Moxie model – Kylie and I have loved working with you!!
