Senior Models

A once a year opportunity exclusively at J&A Photography

Due to an overwhelming response applications are no longer being accepted. Thank you to all that applied!!!

Class of 2020 Now accepting applications!

We have an exciting opportunity for you soon-to-be High school Seniors!  Every year we have what we call the J&A Photo Senior Model Program that allows us to promote business while working with fun people and exploring our creativity in our photography!  The past few years, rather than doing the typical Senior photo shoots, we chose to do something a bit different and creative. To view more photos of our lovely models from the past please continue reading below. We've done this type of shoot for 3 years now and are so excited to continue it for the class of 2020! đź™‚

Tell me more about becoming a J&A Photo senior model

A Senior Model is someone who LOVES to have their photo taken and to be pampered by the best professional hair and makeup artists. Someone who is looking for something unique and once in a lifetime. Who is fun, outgoing, loves having a good time and loves telling their friends about it. And of course, someone who is going to promote J&A Photography to all their friends and classmates. Our hopes are that once your friends see what we can do, they are going to come to us for their senior pictures. Though we would love to take everyone who applies, only one or two students from each local high school are selected to be Senior Models for J&A Photography.  It’s not that we don’t love you if you are not chosen, it’s that it is so, so incredibly tough to choose and we’re looking for applicants who we think will also give us a good return in promoting our business.
