Welcome to our

Senior Model Program!


If you find yourself here it's because we really want YOU. More than just the heartbeat of my business, mentoring young women has been a life-calling and this program extends far beyond photos. I’m told regularly how this experience defined girls’ senior years; which for me is incredibly humbling. As one of my 2020 Senior Models you’ll be a part of a full, editorial-styled session with the works: hair, makeup, wardrobe, and a moment in time I promise you will hold dear. You’ll receive a TON of freebies, which makes space in the program very limited. If you’re selected for the interview process it’s because you've set a good example for others and are involved in the community. I’m looking for girls who are leaders in their school and want to make an impact in the lives of others.

Now, before we go any further, please be sure to familiarize yourself with our work. If you are selected as a model, you will represent our brand and studio, so it's imperative that you feel a connection to our mission and our style of photography.

If you like our style and believe you'd be a great Mod Bettie representative please, by all means carry on...

The Job


The most important factor to my representative program is connecting with my girls. I want to connect with them personally and get to know who they are and what they like. When they talk about me to their friends their feelings are genuine as we have formed a friendship. For this reason, I choose to keep my representative programs under 10 girls. This ensures I can get to know each of them on a personal level. I also invite my representatives and their parents to the studio after they have been chosen. We inform them on all the benefits of being in the program and socialize that evening.

The Perks


Each Mod Bettie Senior Model will receive $500 free to use toward our all-inclusive Luxe session complete with professional hair and makeup, access to our props and wardrobe, editorial-style retouching, your choice of locations, and a personal mobile phone app with web sized images. Being a part of our program means you will be featured in our Senior Marketing Material, Facebook Page, Videos, Posters & Website. Once your session is complete you can further earn money toward the cost of prints and products. For every referral you bring us before graduation season you will receive a $75 credit on your account to use toward anything your heart desires! Graduation announcements, albums, family gift prints, you name it. The harder you work to spread the word about us (which will be easy after you experience a Mod Bettie session for yourself!) the less you'll spend on your Senior Portraits. We want to connect our photography with the students at your school in the Class of 2020. 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.

Prints & Products


Within 1-2 weeks after your shoot you'll be invited to my home office to view and place your print/product order. As graduation approaches we will collect your referrals for the year and update your balance accordingly. Balances must be paid before products are ordered and can take 1-3 weeks to arrive so please keep that in mind for open house deadlines. Please review our print & product costs in our Senior Magazine below...

The Application Process

We are currently accepting applications for Class of 2020 models in and around the West Michigan area until June 30th.

Name *

e.g. www.facebook.com/YourUniqueFacebookName This is a big part of how we evaluate you as a candidate so it is important that you test that the link actually goes to your Facebook page in a browser before you apply. If the link does not bring us to your page, we will most likely discard your application.
e.g. www.instagram.com/YourUniqueInstagramName This is a big part of how we evaluate you as a candidate so it is important that you test that the link actually goes to your Instagram page in a browser before you apply. If the link does not bring us to your page, we will most likely discard your application.
Tell us why you would be a good model and representative for our studio. Be sure to include any activities you are involved in, academic achievements, and any previous experience modeling. Good answers will focus less on why you want to be a model and more on why you would be a good model to represent our brand and studio.
There are a lot of senior photographers. Why do you want to work with Mod Bettie?
Don't be shy and don't hold back. I want to hear the craziest, dreamiest ideas you have!
Tell us the specific name of the person or organization who referred you or how you found out about us. Preference is given to applicants referred by existing models and clients.

After you apply, we’ll let you know as soon as possible if you’ve been accepted as a Mod Bettie 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.

If you’re accepted, we will schedule an in studio consultation to talk more about your dream shoot and go over the details of our program. A parent must be present at this consultation. Senior Models are required to sign a contract stating they will not represent another photography studio as a model. This is non-negotiable as it would create an obvious conflict of interest.
