I’ve done a lot of work over the last few months revamping our Senior Ambassadors program. It’s not that I didn’t like it before, I am just really excited to have a fresh new program with a more unique experience. In the past, each senior had the opportunity for a free session with me and once they reached three referrals, they got a print collection for free. Now, I am doing three “styled” shoots where the six Senior Ambassadors will have the opportunity to get some really incredible photos to share on social media and work towards getting credit towards their full senior session later in the summer. The first of our shoots was our spring shoot, shot in-studio in downtown Seattle. We had some top hair and makeup artists on set, making each girl look her best. Each girl had a 20-minute mini-session in the studio and then we finished with some fun shots of the whole group. My amazing mother-in-law and hostess with the most, Catherine, provided an amazing spread of food and drinks for everyone to enjoy. We also invited the girls’ parents to the session and I think they really enjoyed getting to watch their daughters be models for the day. This shoot is not typical of the type of shooting I do (I’m typically an outdoorsy, wide open fields and woodsy kinda gal), but it was so refreshing to push my creativity a bit and do something different. My goal with the new Senior Ambassadors program is to give each girl a unique experience that they won’t be able to get anywhere else. We will also be holding a fall and winter session to keep our images fresh and keep working with the girls throughout the school year! It was so much fun to work with these inspiring young ladies. I can’t wait to see what they accomplish!
