Class of 2013 Senior Model Search | Elkhart Senior Photography

So, high school senior-to-be, what if I told you that with a modest amount of effort on your part, that you could earn some extra spending money? Interested? Good.

OK, what if I told you that you could earn a LOT of extra spending money? Even more interested? Great!

And what if I told you that as part of this plan, you get to be treated like a rock-star model for a day? You’re probably hooked, now, right?

So what are we talking about? Well, it’s the 2012-1013 Memory Lane Portrait Boutique (MLPB) Model Search, which we are kicking off this week.

Here’s how it works. We are looking for two current high school juniors (class of 2013) at every Michiana school to be Senior Models for the MLPB Senior Experience. If you or anyone you know might be interested, please fill out the on-line application below and hit submit. We will review the applications and be back in touch with you and your parent(s) soon to discuss the program.

So what is a MLPB Senior Model? Well, basically they are our ambassadors at area high schools. They help us sell the Memory Lane Portrait Boutique Senior Experience to their friends and encourage them to use us as their Senior Portrait artists.

How would you do that? Well, here’s the fun part. If you are chosen to be a MLPB Senior Model from your school, you will receive a free MLPB Senior Experience, consisting of a studio and outdoor photo session of 60-90 minutes each. PLUS you will have your hair and makeup done by a professional hair and makeup artist so you can look your best. Your studio session and makeover will be at our studio facilities, but your outdoor session can be anywhere in Michiana — your choice, although we do have several suggestions of places where we have shot in the past. Or you can choose a special place that’s all you. The MLPB Senior Experience normally costs $425, but Senior Models get it all for FREE! 

After your shoots, we’ll take two or three of your shots and create a business card-sized card (with a super cool design) with our information on the back to hand out to your friends. Your friends score because they get a discount on their MLPB Senior Experience session. We’ll also provide you with access to several of your shots for your Facebook page and a fabulous mini accordion album to show off your portraits. Then for every friend who books a senior shoot with Memory Lane Portrait Boutique through your card or Facebook page, you will receive your cash. Yep, cold, hard cash. How much? Try $25 for every friend that signs with us. If five friends sign up, that’s $125. If it’s 10 friends, then it’s $250. Get a hundred and it’s $2,500. So just think, you could pay for a new wardrobe or your senior trip. Or whatever you want.

So we would imagine that your next question is how do you get chosen to be a MLPB Senior Model? Well, first of all, you need to be photogenic and enjoy having your picture taken. A good sense of style doesn’t hurt, either. But just as important is an outgoing personality. This is essentially a part-time job in which the responsibilities include being photographed by our studio and then promoting us by showing your senior portraits to your friends, telling them about the studio, and encouraging them to choose Memory Lane Portrait Boutique for their senior portraits. Being an active part of social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter is a must, as you will be expected to help promote MLPB  as much as possible (don’t worry, we’ll show you how).

We would love to be able to choose everyone, but as we said, we are limiting the amount of Models per school, so it’s a pretty elite group. But just know that if you get chosen to be a part of this, it’s going to be fun and exciting. So if you or someone you know at one of the schools above might be interested, don’t hesitate to submit the application at this link. We expect the spots to fill up quick!
