2016 Senior Team!!

025

What better time than July to finally post my 2016 Senior Team?! Haha!! So, as mentioned in the previous blog post…things got a little out of hand, so this is being reveled a bit later than planned…but even so, I am still so excited to share it! This was such a fun and awesome group we had and I hope they all love the photos as much as I do! Not only that, I hope it takes them all back to remember the fun day we had. I won’t lie…after watching Justin finish up the video, I was really kicking myself on my decision to go another route…only because it reminded me of how much fun it was!! However, I stand by it all for now, but maybe I’ll come up with something new and fun and different to have the best of both worlds!

The 2016 Senior Team members are:

Justice Clark, Elle Lamb, Cheyenne Leeth, Anthony McFadden, Maris Corzine, Nathaniel Lamb, Savannah Leeth, Madisyn Myers & Xena Stearos

I think everyone’s waited long enough…

the 2016 Senior Team!!

 

 

Now, of course, I can’t fit all of my favorite images in a 3 minute video…so here’s some more that I just had to share!! 001  002  003  004  005  006  007  008  009  010  011  012  013  014  015  016  017  018  019  020  021  022  023  024    026  027  028  029  030  031  032  033  034  035  036  037  038  039  040  041

Kara | 2016 Chillicothe High School Senior

Happy Wednesday everyone! I am gearing up for one of my first 2017 senior shoots for the year this evening, so it seemed like a good idea to share one of my 2016 seniors! I have so many of these I can’t wait to share, so I better get to it before we have a whole new crew to show off! On that note, I also just checked the calendar and found that I’ve only got 3 more evening shoots for July!! So, if you are an upcoming senior and wanted to get your shoot in before the craziness of school begins, let’s snag you one of those evenings…cause the light is just soo good :)  (that also goes for families too! so if you wanted a summer shoot before August…you know what to do!)

I did Kara’s shoot last August and I loved our evening together! Not only is she *gorgeous*, she’s so sweet and stylish! She wanted a “town” look, so we met up at the football field to knock out her cheer shots and then we walked around town for the rest…simple, easy…but so fun!! Kara, hope you are having a great summer before you head off to college!

Seniors, I’ve got something for YOU!

blog069

 

It’s time to get something out. I’ve had countless messages, texts and calls this year about the “senior team” and I think I need to explain the route it’s all going this year.
There won’t be a team this year…well, there will, kind of…it’s something totally new, and I’ll explain that in a minute.

You see, the past 3 years I have developed a different way of having “Senior Reps” in our area…and it’s been amazing. I have truly loved every single senior that has been involved. The issue, you ask? Well, it’s grown bigger than I imagined…now, that’s not a bad thing, but it has unintentionally gone down a road that I wasn’t planning. The program was set up different than a typical senior rep program. In short, any senior in the Ross County area could apply, all seniors that agreed to book with me if chosen (a must) would be invited to a group interview. The group interview was conducted by myself and the current team…we would then decide what kids would represent my brand, get excited about the shoot and really “mesh” together. We didn’t choose “reps” in the typical sense that they would get a free shoot or products, or anything really. Of course, they would all end up receiving a bit of a discount on their shoots and orders, but it wasn’t presented with that…it was all about the experience of the big shoot and making some new friends and getting some crazy fun photos out of it.

Then the program grew. It grew fast. My goal was to really just celebrate these amazing seniors and their kind hearts and hardworking selves and just show that off. You know, celebrate the last 13 years! Well, there are so many more than 8 – 10 kids like that in the area…and *so* many were applying. That’s great, right? Just pick the ones that work well together and move on, right? Well, I can’t. I can’t tell kids that they aren’t good enough or they won’t jive with the theme or this that and the other…because the truth is, they all do. They would all be the most perfect choice! I know what you are thinking, it’s the same thing everyone has told me when I explain my problem with it…kids need to learn they don’t get everything. You can’t win it all.

I agree. Everyone needs to learn that…but the truth is, I don’t want to be the one handing out that lesson. I want my seniors to all feel loved and appreciated and amazing…because they are. I love keeping up with them and seeing what they are doing in college or their next steps and beyond…I am so proud of each and every one of the kids I’ve photographed.

So call me too emotional or whatever, but in the end…I have to go with my gut…and frankly, I just can’t choose anymore.

What does that mean for the 2017 class? Well, I won’t be doing my typical program…however, I will be doing something for ALL of my seniors this year. It’s not a big stylized shoot…but there will be a party, and free stuff, and photos and food…but you’ll have to stay tuned for that…well, and book with me, of course :) I want you ALL on my team.

If you have questions about it all, PLEASE contact me, I’d be happy to explain it all more. If you were counting on a discount or deal, let me know…you’d be surprised at the range of investment I have with my seniors…I work with everyone, really. There are so many different options for shoots, just message me to find out the options!

What about the 2016 Senior Team? I am not hiding those, I swear! We got overwhelmed with the end of the school year deadlines and it just was put off for too long. Plus, I had such reservations about what route I wanted to take this year, I think I was avoiding it all…I was scared to jump into another team while hurting people’s feelings…so, it’s coming, the photos are FINISHED! Just waiting on the video to be ready!

I really hope everyone understands where I am coming from…in the end, I want to celebrate YOU.

2015 Senior Team Member : Payne // Chillicothe High School Senior – Part 1!

I have got to share all the sessions from my amazing 2015 team before they all go off to college!! So many fun photo shoots to post! Starting with Payne, this is just part 1 of his shoot…because, when you have a actual professional model as a senior…you make them do more than one shoot ;) This is another classic example of a “mini” shoot that I turned into a full one on the spot…I swear it happens less than what it seems, but you don’t have to believe me due to the last few “mini” sessions I’ve shared.

Now, I know what you are thinking…no way he’s a senior. Welp, he is. Plus, he’s the sweetest and crazy smart. Seriously, this guy not only received a full ride to his college, but from what I hear, he snagged around 40 scholarships (or something amazing like that)…I mean, come on. Payne, I’ve had the best time getting to know you and I am so excited to hear about your upcoming year at college!! You make me proud.
