REP INFO

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!

01 and 02 HELLO 03 and 04 Investment 05 and 06 Details 07 and 08 Reps and FAQ

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!

Emily is one of my current senior reps! She attends Oberlin High School where she is a member of Living Healthy Club, Fellowship of Christian Students, and a part of the Literary Rally team. She enjoys competing in pageants and fishing. Emily said she chose Photography by Hailey to take her senior portraits because “there is no one else that I would want to take my senior pictures.” I chose this wonderful senior to be a rep due to her beauty, style, and fun personality.

Emily’s senior session had so many componants that I’ve been DREAMING OF for so long! I’ve been wanting to do a shoot involving a car. Check. I’ve wanted to do a new spin on the whole “glitter blowing” trend. Check. I’ve been NEEDING to do a dramatic senior series with the model in an evening gown. Annnnnd check.

To add to the fact that I was able to exercise some pent up creativity, this session also had GORGEOUS sunset light, one of a kind locations, and stunning hair and make up- all of which made for a killer session!

Here are a few of my favorites:

First up are a few from Emily’s hometown. Shooting in an area that is unique to your town is awesome! Even if the location doesn’t look like anything special, it will be perfect! A location like this makes your session unique and sentimental.

Then, we went to Emily’s dad’s land where he has rice bins. Yes, this is a type of location that I use a lot, but it never gets old! This is especially cool when it relates to the client’s family so that it is meaningful as well as cute!

Then we went to Emily’s cousin’s house. Again, meaningful AND gorgeous. I’ll never say no to a field of flowers!

And now… Seriously. Want for me to overload you with tons of extra photos because I simply cannot narrow down my favorites? BRING AN EVENING GOWN! Whether it is a prom dress, a pageant dress, or just a dress you love, it looks AMAZING in pictures. And hey, we can still get the traditional pictures later on in the session. This will just give your senior photos an added level of creativity and uniqueness to look back on for years!

And then, we went to Emily’s grandma’s home – another sentimental location with stunning views, trees, and areas for props. Besides just the evening gown, crown, etc., Emily also brought a hat, her beloved car, and a fun surprise in her high school colors to use as an alternative to glitter and/or balloons.

And then there ended up being a paint war because why waste all of the other colors that came in the pack?! Haha!

To Emily & her mom (& Brad)- Thank you so much for including me in your senior year! This was one of my favorites sessions EVER and it is because you guys put so much thought and effort into it! Thanks for helping to make it special! (And for holding my reflector to get all of that gorgeous highlighting! ;)

Readers, there is even more senior goodness to come! This has been an AMAZING senior season and I am so happy that it is not over yet. ;)

Oh, and no session is complete without a few behind the scenes photos. I’ve been slacking on sharing those lately, so here are a few from this session:
