When coming up with my exclusive Senior Model Team format I wanted to do something completely different than what other Charlotte photographers do. I wanted to see the experience from the perspective of the teens - giving them opportunities that they would love + enjoy + benefit from - as opposed to asking them to sell or give me referrals. This time in their lives is about having fun, making new friendships, + developing a sense of self. This time is about enriching their self confidence as they get ready to go off to college + be on their own for the very first time. I wanted to give them something that would help them prepare for that.
As a rising Charlotte Senior when you join the Laurel Belle Photography Senior Model Team you get:
New friendships. Models are chosen from different schools ensuring that new friendships + new bonds are formed.
Two volunteer opportunties to serve for local nonprofits. Not only does this look great on a college application, this is another wonderful bonding experience for teens as they are able to do give back to their community. One of our services is wrapping gifts for underprivileged local children at Christmas.
A high-end, styled, on location portrait session for the team. This is a truly one-of-a-kind experience above and beyond what is normally offered. Each model is styled in gorgeous chic outfits + will have their hair + make up professionally done on set for the session.
High-End Shoot Grand Reveal Party. This party is for the Teen Model Team and their parents and will include fun mock-tails. This is where the images from the styled, on location shoot will be revealed to the teens for the first time in a fun, gallery opening-like experience.
Individual Senior Session. Each teen model will have her/his own individual senior session where his/her personality + style will take center stage. This session will take place at an outdoor location with multiple outfit changes + hair and make up.
An Image Gallery App. As a fun bonus + because I know teens always their phones, each participant will receive an exclusive App for their phones, housing both their digital high-end portrait session images AND their digital individual senior session images allowing them to show off their hard work wherever they are.
NO REFERRING REQUIRED. As a Laurel Belle Photography Senior Model Team member you are never asked to refer, hand out business cards, sell, or do any other type of promoting as a member of the Team.
Applications are now being accepted for the team! To apply fill out this form. The deadline application has been extended through June 10th! Once you have filled out the form, simply take a photo of it and attach it by email + email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Being a member of the Team is an investment of $1,299 to cover the cost of travel, hair and make-up, events, styling, digital images, and photo sessions. Applicants and their parents will be invited to a meeting with Laurel Belle Photography where they can ask questions + hear all about the Team in more detail before investing.
I am super excited about this one-of-a-kind program and experience and can't wait to get started!
