High School Senior Model Program

What is it?

It’s a marketing program that gives Class of 2017 High School Seniors a chance to get discounts, prizes, beautiful senior pictures and really fun photos to share with friends on social media. We want to connect our photography with the students at your school in the Class of 2017. Who else does that better than a well-connected and involved high school junior! We try to make this program a win-win for everyone. We are accepting applications from any high school in West Linn, Wilsonville, Tualatin, Tigard, Lake Oswego and the surrounding areas.

After you apply, we’ll let you know as soon as possible if you’ve been accepted as an Elle M Senior Model Rep. Sometimes we get too many applications for the position, so if you are not accepted, don’t sweat it! It’s not you, it’s us. Really.

Once you’re accepted, you will schedule a time at your convenience to model for our Spring 2016 session. It’s going to be REALLY fun and you’re going to get great pictures to share with friends! We’ll post a number of images on the Elle M Photography Facebook page & Instagram, tagging you, so you can share them with friends and family.

What do the Seniors get for being an Elle M Senior Model?

  • Extra Sessions: Be part of fun concept shoots exclusively for Elle M Senior Model Reps.
  • Publicity: Website, blog, Facebook, Instagram & magazines are some of the places in which you may appear!

Who can become an Elle M Senior Model?

This program is by application and selection only. We are looking for models who are well connected in their high schools and who truly appreciate the quality of Elle M Photography. The best models are outgoing and comfortable behind the camera.

Senior models should use social media on a regular basis and be willing to spread the word about the amazing photo shoots and images they get from Elle M Photography.

What are the expectations for being an Elle M Senior Model?

Answer the senior application questionnaire honestly and thoughtfully (this helps me capture the real you).

Provide the Instagram names of 5 friends you think would be interested in being a senior model or having their pictures with Elle M Photography

Parent and seniors should be willing to share their experience with Elle M Photography by;

  • Sharing images on social media
  • Writing positive online reviews
  • Recommending Elle M Photography

Ok, So I referred someone, what do they get by going to Elle M Photography?
