Class of 2018 – it is almost YOUR time! As a senior portrait photographer, I’m sure that I’m ALMOST as excited as you are that it is time for me to proceed with booking for my 2018 senior season! I am beginning my search for my 2018 senior reps NOW!

I have been SO BLESSED to have amazing senior clients. All of them – especially my reps – have been the cream of the crop. They’ve been beautiful. They’ve been involved. They’ve been spectacular. I’m looking for those types of guys and gals for this next year. 

Do you love taking photos? Do you love representing your city or school? Do you love to be a part of something special and elite? If so, then you are EXACTLY what I’m looking for! Want to sign up? Here are the details, requirements, perks, etc. of being a Photography by Hailey senior rep:


I am taking applications for the next MONTH! I will being reviewing these applications in search of the next set of teens to join the Photography by Hailey senior class. The reps will be announced shortly after the deadline which is June 20th.

After that, I will be e-mailing all of my new reps to get all of the details in order for our first task- the SENIOR MODEL SHOOT on Saturday, August 26, 2017! This is a mandatory shoot for all senior reps, so if you are applying, put that on your calendar NOW so that you can be available if you are chosen. Trust me- it is an AMAZING experience and you would not want to miss anyway!

Additional FAQs:

“How many reps will you choose?” - Honestly, I have no idea. Some years, I pick 3. Other years, I pick 13! It really depends on the diversity of applicants, schools represented, etc! We shall see. ;)

“A lot of people from my school are applying. Will you pick more than 1 rep per school?” - I am definitely open to having more than 1 rep from a school. I have picked as many as 7 reps from a single school before, so definitely apply! Hey- who knows? Maybe you’ll all get chosen and get to have even more of a bonding experience as reps!

“I’m a little shy. I don’t know if I’d be comfortable working with the other seniors. Do you think I’d enjoy being a rep?” - Trust me, you will LOVE it! A lot of the reps are shy at first, but it wears away quickly. Once the first few photographs have been taken, you get use to being on camera and around your peers. And plus, you’re all in the same boat, so just that gives you plenty to bond over. I’ve never had a rep leave the shoot feeling anything other than excited! (& maybe a little tired haha!)

“Where will the mandatory rep meeting / shoot be located at?” - The rep shoot will definitely be in the Lake Charles area (where I am based at). The specific location/ time details will be released via e-mail to the senior reps after the deadline for applications.

“What kind of senior do you chose to be a rep?” - Well… All kinds! To see photos from past rep sessions, click on the “senior” section of this blog. You’ll see a ton of fabulous guys and gals. You may even see someone you know! 

You KNOW you want to be a part of this, so e-mail me TODAY at photobyhailey@yahoo.com to start the process of being a part of the rep experience!

Austin is another one of my Kinder seniors!

He was such a great sport and even included a few of his own ideas! To top it all off, he was so sweet and didn’t laugh at me too hard when I fell in the mud during his session. ;)
