So many teens are RAVING about being a part of a senior photoshoot team during their senior year. If you’re a junior, you’re probably wondering what a model team is and why you should join one. If you’re someone who likes to make new friends, go on adventures and have a fun experience in the last year of high school, you’ll love being a part of something like this!

The model team details

Nicole Marie Photography’s model team is an exclusive group of girls who are enthusiastic, love being in front of the camera, and love making new friends! No, you don’t need to be an actual model or even have a clue on how to pose. Just like your individual senior photoshoot, I guide you with posing the whole time. We do lots of movement and prompts to get you all laughing and having a blast (because having fun is what it’s all about, right)?! Each shoot has a theme, an adventure, and a common style. The shoots are spaced out in different seasons so we can hang out and have fun together all year long!

What to expect when you’re on the team

I’m not your average photographer, that is, I’m not here to just take a few pics and send you on your way! I want this to be a BOMB experience for you! That is one reason why I love senior model team sessions…it’s all about the memories. Before each team shoot, you’re sent a guideline on what type of outfits to wear. We talk about colors, style and the theme of the shoot. Each girl sends their outfit choices to me and from there I coordinate it all to create a cohesive style. During model team sessions, we take a few minutes to do individual shots and then we do lots of full group and small group photos. My favorite go-to prompt when we’re in a wide open area is to have all the girls stand next to each other and “frolic”! This always gets everyone laughing…and makes for adorable photos.
