What am I looking for in a Senior Model?
I am looking for seniors that are outgoing, fun, artsy, passionate, active on social media, and are involved in different activities (sports, clubs/activities, music, art, church groups, volunteer work, etc.). I need seniors of all styles and types. This is going to be a FUN experience for all involved!
Why should you choose me as your senior photographer?
My goal is to create an amazing experience that will allow you and your parents to have lasting memories of a great senior year! I want your individual senior sessions to reflect your personality and individuality. Your senior year is going to go by quickly. With the hustle and bustle of trying to figure out what you are going to do after graduation, the year will be gone in the blink of an eye. That's where I come in! My sessions are fun and natural. And my number one priority is making sure that you love your photos!
What are the perks of being a Senior Model for Kristen Dawn Photography?
There are SO many perks to being a part of my Senior Model Team!
Senior Model Team group shoots: There will be 2-3 group shoots that will have different themes. These themed shoots will be scheduled far in advance to give everyone the opportunity to be in the shoot. I will communicate the theme to everyone and from there you are able to pick your own outfits to express your individual style. Some of these shoots will even be sponsored by local boutiques! Individual Sessions: Depending on the Senior Model package you and your parents select, there are 2-3 individual sessions. These sessions also include hair and makeup if you choose to do so. If you are not interested in hair and makeup, or you are a male, you can swap it out for extra session time. This is truly where you get to shine (as well as take risks with my creativity). Every one of your sessions will differ from another model's session. I have so many different ideas for fun sessions depending on each person's likes and interests. I would also LOVE to hear your ideas for your individual sessions. We can collaborate to come up with an experience that will be truly unforgettable! FREE items: I will be giving away free items such as gift cards, prints, canvases, and even cold hard cash when it comes time to recruit for the following year's Senior Model Team! Getting featured: Being a part of my Senior Model Team means you will have the opportunity to be featured on different platforms. This could include magazines, local businesses, and different platforms of social media.

What happens if I am selected to be a Senior Model?
First things first, I will contact you and set up a meeting with you and a parent/guardian (this is required to book). At that time we will go over the terms and conditions, packages, pricing, booking, etc. I will answer any and all questions you may have and we will discuss themes and ideas for your individual sessions. Once you and a parent/guardian sign the contract and model release forms, a $100 retainer fee is required to move forward with booking. The balance of your selected package will be due by the end of your last scheduled individual session. Payments can be made throughout the year to fulfill the balance. The $100 retainer will be put towards your package total. Photos will not be released until the full balance of your selected package has been paid.
THE GOALS OF THIS WHOLE PROCESS ARE TO HAVE FUN, MAKE LASTING MEMORIES, AND GIVE YOU AMAZING PICTURES! I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS AND I CANNOT WAIT TO WORK WITH EVERYONE!
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU AND A PARENT/GUARDIAN HAVE READ THROUGH EVERYTHING BEFORE CONTINUING TO THE APPLICATION PROCESS BELOW.
