2019 SENIOR REP PROGRAM
Hello there! Welcome to the informational page of the Happy Out Photography Senior Rep Program. I'm your photographer, Katie, and I am so very excited to be launching this program for 2019 seniors. I can't wait to meet with each of you at the upcoming informational meeting, but I wanted to provide a "home base" of info about the Senior Rep Program Experience to get us started.
I've constructed this Senior Rep Program to offer the BEST, most EXCITING incentives and overall meaningful EXPERIENCE for my #hopseniors.
But first, let's talk about what being a Senior Rep means and what all it entails.
WHAT IS A SENIOR REP?
A Senior Rep is someone who is eager to be a part of something more before high school has wrapped up in 2019. You will be trusted to represent the Happy Out Photography brand. My Senior Reps are first in line to get their senior portraits taken, which then you can promote the services and talents to other prospective seniors! By making referrals, you'll earn credit incentives, make new friends, and get some pretty stunning senior photos while you're at it. Senior Reps will also get the opportunity to do group shoots with other Senior Reps throughout the school year as well as construct a fundraiser of your choice as a group (just to name a few added bonuses)!
DISCOUNT & THE SENIOR REP PACKAGE
For starters, Senior Reps receive ton of incentives beyond the financial bonuses. After you choose the level of participation that works best for you, the ENTIRE amount is applied to your reveal party order! That includes all wall art, albums, other products, + digital files of your sessions over the course of the year.
- A pre-consultation to get things going; we'll talk about your style, ideas, + other details
- Professional hair and makeup
- A 2 hour photo session
- Up to 4 outfit changes
- Up to 2 locations
- Wall art and album design to compliment your favorite images in your space
- Custom-designed graduation announcements to announce your accomplishment in style
- Group photo shoots with other reps throughout the year which will be creative and fun!
First of all, you have already received discounts which are never offered to seniors outside the rep program. When you make a referral to another senior and they complete a session, you will earn $50 toward your reveal party or a gift card of your choosing! Additionally, I am happy to write my senior reps references, letters of recommendation, etc. for any kind of program/college/sorority/organization applications.
There's nothing I love more than pampering my Senior Reps! But, each Senior Rep is responsible for remaining in the program by meeting the following requirements:
- Remain exclusive to the Happy Out Photography brand. This means you may not book other senior photos with another professional photographer during your senior year.
- Schedule your senior session with Happy Out Photography before the beginning of your senior year.
- Following the session, you must publish at least five photos to your social media outlets throughout the course of the school year. Each post must properly tag @happyoutphotography on Instagram + other participating vendors.
- Promote and refer other seniors to Happy Out Photography for their senior photos!
- Perform well in school and follow the good behavior clause as stated in our contract
That's it, really! The amount of incentives you earn is dependent on how many people you refer and if they book!
Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, let's get to the fun stuff!
At our informational consultation meeting, we will get to know each other better, address any questions or concerns, go over the Senior Rep requirements and the contract, and book your session. I like to ask that you bring a parent/guardian to your consultation if you are under 18 years old-and if someone else is responsible for financial decisions in your household.
BEFORE YOUR SHOOT
We will meet an hour before your shoot for your makeup and styling session. During your makeup, we will plan out final details of the shoot, choose which outfits to wear according to your locations, and chat until you're all dolled up and feeling great.
This is the fun part! I pride myself in making each and every one of my clients feel comfortable and relaxed during their session. I'm huge on teaching a few tips on posing to start out your session because it makes photos feel less stiff and my seniors more comfortable in front of the camera. This helps to get the session going and ensure your senior photos are just as amazing as you! Your natural self will soon blossom during the shoot with lots of laughs and killer shots! I'll bring a mobile changing tent to make switching outfits as easy as possible, and a small speaker so we can jam out during your session!
FOLLOWING THE SHOOT
After we've shot your beautiful senior photos, we will schedule a time for your reveal party! This is some of the most fun to see the finished product and all of the gorgeous photos of yourself in this stage of your life. This is when you will choose your wall art, graduation announcements, and album designs with me to help guide you.
After you've received your photos and products, and the 2019 Senior Rep Program has concluded, I will send over a super short survey to share your thoughts about the experience. You can earn an additional referral just by taking a few minutes to fill out the survey!
So, how do I apply?
I will ONLY be inviting 5-15 senior reps to join my exclusive senior rep squad this year from all areas in and around Pittsburgh, PA. If you are a current junior and enjoy pampering yourself, meeting new people, being in front of the camera, and having a great time: I encourage YOU to apply!
