Our class of 2020 Model call for THIS SPRING is NOW OPEN!
I specialize in High School Senior portraits and I'm holding a model call for local (OC area) senior portrait marketing sessions to get some local senior faces on my blog and social media! If you are class of 2020 this model call is for YOU! These sessions will take place in March 2019, so grab your squad and sign up now.
ARE YOU CURRENTLY A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR IN ORANGE COUNTY?
DO YOU LOVE FASHION or HAVE A UNIQUE STYLE or TALENT?
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 last Fall! 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 OC area high school students and use these images on my social media platforms to introduce my work to the CLASS OF 2020!
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 and share 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 and allow me to tag you when I post! 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 sophomore may I still apply?
YES! We will be doing this again next Spring with class of 2021 senior marketing and the following year with 2022 marketing, and so forth! We also hold seasonal themed model calls occasionally throughout the year. If you want to sign up to be considered for the 2020-2021 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 this time, I sincerely hope you have a fantastic senior year making amazing memories to carry off to college with you!

Brooke C's Senior Story: Firefly Garden
Brooke C, is a 2018 graduate from Westlake High School in Austin, Texas. Brooke's mom came to us because she wanted us to capture her kindness and compassion. She also wanted very much for Brooke to have a very special experience and feel exceptionally beautiful for her portraits.
Brooke had been wearing a scoliosis brace for 23 hours a day for several years and was finally allowed to remove the brace during the day the Fall of her senior year. After spending her entire high school years in T-shirts and sweats to hide the brace, Brooke's mom wanted her to experience the full beauty makeover treatment that we offer at our Gold and Platinum senior sessions!
With the assistance of Nicole Gonzales Makeup artist, Brooke's session was everything she and mom had hoped it would be and more. When mom saw the film and images she cried and hugged and thanked us. Brooke and mom went home with, not only a beautiful album and keepsake box of amazing images, but with the memory of a very special, unforgettable experience, that she will carry in her heart forever.
