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 2017 Senior Models you’ll be a part of a full editorial styled shoot with the works: hair, makeup, wardrobe, and a moment in time I promise you will hold dear. You’ll receive a free session with me which makes space in the program very limited. You've been selected for the interview process 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 get any further, please be sure to familiarize yourself with our work. If you are selected as a model you 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 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.
Each Mod Bettie Senior Model will receive a free all inclusive 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 ($350 value). Being a part of our program is free and 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 $50 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 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.
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 2017 models in and around the West Michigan area until June 30th.
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.
