Our 2019 (current senior) Model call is now closed, BUT, if you are currently a JUNIOR our 2020 Model call for THIS SPRING is NOW OPEN! Marketing shoots will take place in March so grab your squad and sign up NOW!
I specialize in High School Senior portraits and I'm holding a model call for local (Irvine area) senior portrait marketing and test sessions!
ARE YOU CURRENTLY A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR IN OC/IRVINE?
DO YOU LOVE FASHION or HAVE A UNIQUE STYLE?
DO YOU LOVE PHOTOSHOOTS (ESPECIALLY FREE ONES) AND WANT UNIQUE SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGES THAT STAND OUT?
First of all, I absolutely LOVE what I do and what extrovert or fashion lover doesn't love a fab photoshoot? But, in the spirit of keeping it transparent, I am BRAND NEW to the Orange County/SoCal scene and just moved my thriving senior portrait business to Irvine, from Austin, Texas! While I already have a fabulous portfolio, and offer an amazing full-service portrait experience complete with hair, makeup, and styling, I'd love to produce a quick batch of fresh new images with a variety of local faces of OC area high school students and use these images on my social media platforms to introduce my work to the community!
What's in it for you and me?
It's win-win! If you are one of the 3-4 students selected, it means a complimentary mini photoshoot for you and a friend! It also means any images that I select for current and future marketing will be shared with you and your friend, to post however you wish!
Do I have to try to sell to my friends or refer my friends to participate?
Absolutely not! Your senior year is far too busy for all that ish! While I consider referrals the highest compliment, I only ask that you to dress up, show up, and have fun in front of the camera this one time! If you want to post your images, tag me or tell your friends - feel free - I would love that!
Is it okay if I have no experience modeling but want to try this, even though I'm camera shy?
That's okay, too! We want to represent EVERYONE! Guys, girls, them - this is all about having fun! Since this is complimentary, you have nothing to lose but a little bit of time! Bring a friend to cheer you on. I'll guide you into movement and posing that looks and feels natural and fun! I promise, it's a blast! I'm even happy to help you figure out what to wear. You never know, you might just find your inner supermodel has been dying to come out!
What social media platforms will these images be shared on?
I use 4 platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and my website (that's where you are right meow). Some of my images have even been selected from these platforms for print, publishing, features and awards in national, international, and digital magazines and I've even had a test shoot lead to a senior client getting a part in a commercial through a national production company!
Do my parents have to approve?
Your parents do not have to attend your photoshoot, but they DO have to sign approval and photography release if you are under 18 years of age. I do require a preview of any outfits you want to wear and all outfits must be parent approved. So no showing up in anything cheeky or peeky! I do love surprises, but not the kind that upset the parentals. I'm more of a Starbucks | Sephora gift card kind of girl...
Do these model calls come with professional hair and makeup like the full experience shoots listed on your website?
At this time model calls do not include professional hair and makeup, so you will want to arrive with grooming, hair, and makeup finished and ready to go! If you are interested in a full CJ Seniors Gold or Platinum experience (which DOES include hair, makeup, and styling), this is the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other before you invest!
If I'm really interested but I'm a junior or sophomore may I still apply?
YES! We will be doing this again in the Spring with current juniors in preparation for 2020 senior marketing and the following year with 2021 marketing, and so forth! If you want to sign up to be considered for the 2019-2020 school year ahead of time, go ahead and fill out the form and indicate your graduation year. I look forward to meeting you and helping you celebrate YOUR senior year, also!
If you have additional questions or your parents would like to talk, please do not hesitate to hit the contact button and ask away or schedule a consult via facetime or in-person! We want you to feel completely comfortable with choosing to work with us! And if we don't get to meet with you time, I sincerely hope you have a fantastic senior year making amazing memories to carry off to college with you!
