“I love being on the senior model team because of the amazing people and experiences I have gained through it. I have met so many new girls that are now some of my closest friends, and the team shoots are always so much fun!” Sarah
Each year, I love creating cute themes for each shoot. Having variety makes it fun, so I love changing up the locations and styles. About 1-2 months before each shoot, the model team girls will get an email from me explaining all the details. This includes outfit colors and style, hair and makeup tips, where we will be meeting, and the deadline for sending me your outfit choices. I’m always available to answer questions and help with choosing outfits. My goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to plan!
Every year, team photoshoots will be slightly different, but here’s what we did last year for the class of 2022!
Our first team shoot took place near the Playland rides and Jilly’s candy shop on the Ocean City boardwalk. We started out by introducing ourselves to the group! It was so exciting to meet everyone! I explained the “heart” behind Nicole Marie’s senior model team. That is, we’re all in this to make new friends and have A TON of fun. Clicky-ness and rudeness isn’t welcome–because we are a loving sisterhood! I’m all about making this a momentous time for your senior year. It’s not just about pretty pictures, it’s also about meeting new people and being a part of an exclusive group.
Then, we talked about what’s expected during photoshoots. I always tell girls to not worry about being in a perfect position or feel nervous about posing. Giving the right amount of direction is what I’m here for, and I know how to get the best angles and expressions. I’m all about posing in a natural way, so that you don’t look stiff or uncomfortable. For team shoots, I encourage girls to interact with each other as we’re taking pictures. I love capturing the in-between moments: laughing, talking, and running around on the beach!
After chatting, it was time to shoot! We started out taking photos inside Jilly’s colorful candy shop on the Ocean City boardwalk. The fun vibes of the store really set the mood for the day!
Then, we wandered into Playland where we went on the flying swings and ferris wheel! The model team girls were laughing non stop as the swings made us all so dizzy.
After the rides, we grabbed ice cream at Kohr Bros and headed down to the beach. Catching the sunset was a MUST on our to-do list!
At the very end of our boardwalk/beach shoot, some of the girls decided to jump in the ocean to carry on the tradition from last year. Sami decided to fully commit, and she went all the way under the water! It was such a fun way to kick off the summer season in Ocean City!
Beach bash with floats!
Our second shoot was on a bay side of Ocean City, and it was so adorable to say the least. We snacked on delicious smoothie bowls from Swell Cafe, and posed with some fresh watermelon and pineapples!
After we had a little fruit picnic, the girls grabbed their favorite floats for poses. Then, we did a little beach “frolicking” for some fun movement shots!
We ended the photoshoot by jumping in the ocean, the perfect end to summer before school began.
Snowy alpaca photoshoot!
For our winter shoot, we ventured out to the prettiest alpaca farm. If you have ever been near alpacas, you know they are the cutest farm animal ever. They have adorable smiles on their fluffy faces that make you want to snuggle them all day long. One of the best parts of this photoshoot was that we had a surprise snow storm that turned the whole world magical. The snowy white backdrop made the sun glisten on all the trees. Although we were cold, the girls had a blast and we captured some glowy sunset moments! This shoot was definitely a top bonding moment for us all as we navigated through snow and feeding alpacas!
Our last shoot for the 2022 team will be this upcoming spring, and it’s a surprise! To see what we’ll be up to, follow me on instagram @nicole.mariephotography
