Senior Representative Info.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Plum Portraits Senior Representative Team you have come to the right place! Please read through the team details, from there if it all sounds fab to you then when the application for your senior term is released fill it out and submit it! Keep an eye out for updates on upcoming dates and deadlines on the Plum Portraits social media pages.
WHAT IN THE HECK IS A SENIOR REP?
What the heck even is a senior rep you might ask?? Well, in short, a senior representative is kind of like a spokesmodel. As a Plum Portraits senior rep you would get to hang out with me & occasionally all the other reps and have a blast taking tons of insta-worthy photos. Then all you have to do is post those lovely pics, spread the word to all your friends, & smile from ear to ear when people gawk over your gorgeous/handsome little face! Sounds pretty easy (AND FUN) right?? If you think so, keep reading for more details.
ARE YOU A MODEL IN THE MAKING?
Are you ready to hop in front of the camera & strike your best pose? Being a Plum Portraits Senior Rep means you aren't afraid to open up a little, show off your style, be a bit silly, & push yourself to succeed. I am looking for reps that are fun-loving, outgoing, active in their community & school, driven, and reliable. Please don't ever think that I am only looking for individuals with a certain "model" look. Beauty comes in many shapes & forms, and we are all uniquely beautiful! This being said, I do try to fill my team with a diverse group of individuals, that are (or would like to be MORE!!!) comfortable in their own skin, and whose lovely personality radiates out of them through every photo.
WHAT AM I SIGNING UP FOR?
Being a Plum Portraits Senior Rep is a commitment. I treat my rep team very much like a school team or club. Throughout the year there will be a several things I ask of you. I will maintain the right to remove you from the team if you fail to comply.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
You might be wondering what all is included in the Plum Portraits Senior Rep experience & I don't blame you! Here's a rundown of included services.
A team meet and greet in April to get to know everyone and create a sense of community.
Two full team photoshoots, one in June 2020 and one in January 2021. Each team shoot will include individual & group shots.
One stylized individual shoot. You and I will work together to design a custom, styled photoshoot. This photoshoot is complementary, you will receive 15+ digital images, but I will reserve full creative control over shoot location & details.
One explore or adventure session OR two mini senior sessions at 50% off. Click here to view the session packages!
We work together to design a traditional senior portrait session that fits your individual style & personality! You choose outfits & vibes!
A chance to make new friends, build self-confidence, be creative & have a lot of fun!
I APPLIED, NOW WHAT?
Once you have read all the senior rep info, filled out you application with a parent, and submitted it I will reach out to you & a parent via email to set up a short FaceTime interview! I know this may sound scary, but I promise it will be super laid back & fun! I will just go through your application with you, ask you a few questions (just easy stuff like, what's your favorite food I swear!!), and get to know you a little bit. After I have made my final decisions I will reach out to everyone individually with the news. I will never divulge who applied & who was not selected, that information will always remain 100% confidential.
WHAT IF I AM NOT SELECTED?
The absolute WORST part of choosing my senior rep team is the fact that I can't take everyone! I absolutely wish I could but unfortunately I can only accept 8 team members this year. I will be choosing the 8 applicants that I believe would be the best fit for my team. I want to make a strong point that if I do not choose you it is NOT because you weren't good looking enough, special enough, popular enough, etc. YOU ARE ENOUGH. I just have to make some tough decisions just as any coach, director, or manager must do when choosing between applicants. I will reach out to each applicant personally to let them know whether they have been selected or not by March 23rd, 2020. Applicants' names & information will always remain completely confidential.
If you applied to be a representative and were not selected you will receive 25% off any senior session(s) you book with me!! Even if I am unfortunately not able to work with you as a rep I would still love to get to know you & capture your beautiful soul + smile. **Offer good for serious applicants only.
