All of our Senior Model Reps receive:
- An honest-to-goodness real fashion photo shoot – everyone will participate in a magazine-style group photo/video shoot complete with wardrobe stylists and hair and makeup artists on set. You’ll have the opportunity to meet students from other area high schools as you enjoy an afternoon of being in the spotlight! We’ll have a viewing and pizza party afterward to see the cool footage we just shot! Shoot will be tentatively scheduled for the end of Summer.
- Your photos and a video from the fashion shoot will be available to share on social media and on your own custom photo app
- A free mini senior photography session to get some great photos for your Rep Kit

- All referred classmates will receive 20% off their session fee and order with a valid Rep Card
*You’ll earn referral discounts for each referral you send to Studio Starfish. For every one of those referral cards that comes back to me by another senior with a paid portrait session, you get the following in discounts and print credits (parents love these):
- 1-5 Referrals – $50 off your Senior Session booking, 20% off print order and $25 print credit

Before you can become an official Senior Rep, you must have permission from your parent or legal guardian. Once you’ve filled out the application and if you are selected as a representative, an in-person consultation with at least one of your parents or guardians is mandatory! We’ll likely schedule a group meeting if we can arrange it or if your parents are not available that day, we can discuss the program via Skype. For everyone involved, we feel it is very important for you parents to know what you’ll be getting for participating, what is expected of you, and that you are all generally on the same page. Informed parents are happy parents!
