What is an MWP Model

An MWP Model is a spokesmodel for my business. A person who shares their experience as a model with their friends and classmates and getting your friends to book their photos with MWP and spreading the word about how fun and exciting your senior session was.

Senior Model Benefits

* A Discounted Senior Portrait Session [Must pay $100 retainer and if you get at least two referrals you will get that back in print credit]
* Be a part of several styled group shoots throughout the year
* $25 cash for each friend you refer that books with MWP [they have to pay their session fee for you to get credit]
* Featured in MWP Marketing and Advertisements
* The chance to be the cover of our MWP Magazine

The Scoop:

MWP Models need to follow the application process – this will be done during your Junior year of High School. Fill out the application and make sure you are following me on all social media:


Several students will be chosen from each school to represent MWP and I can’t wait to read about all the applicants. Unfortunately, I can’t choose everyone who applies – the successful applicants will be those that really take the time to answer the questions, put thought and creativity into their answers; and are spokes models who will best represent my brand and business.

The criteria I am looking for are:

Involvement in Sports, School, & Community
Religious activities
Active on Social Media
Fashion Interests

You must promote MWP exclusively – this means if you are chosen, you may not work with any other photographer through the end of your senior year. Exception: Class photo through the school photographer.

You must promote and talk about MWP on social media at least 3 times a month

Attend all group shoots and meet ups

Please fill out the application below and make sure you involve your parents, this is an important time for you and they should be involved. If you are chosen to be an MWP Model, there will be a meet/greet for models and parents which is mandatory.

I was so excited to shoot these photos. I love shooting with Erin; she is such a classic beauty and this is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with her. Her versatility is amazing and I seriously could have shot her all day long. We had the pleasure of working with La Cle Jewelry, by Deanna Saracino and her collection of key necklaces. I love Deanna’s vision because her necklaces are built on a platform of building confidence and self-esteem. This is exactly the foundation that I built my photography on – making girls feel beautiful and building confidence.

Please enjoy some of my favorites from my session with Erin and these super cool necklaces. You can find La Cle Jewelry here:

When I started my photography journey, I photographed many genres but recently decided to focus my attention on High School Seniors. I have been talking for some time about adding a tween program to my list of adventures and I am working on that. I hope to launch that in Spring 2015. I will be looking for young girls ages 12 – 15 to photograph and add to my portolio. Seeing young girls thrive, have confidence and self-esteem is very important to me. Every girl needs to feel beautiful and my dream is to make them feel that way. Look for more information this winter. God Bless.

Thank you Meagan for working with me to capture these photos – they make me happy and you look beautiful! xoxo

Thank you so much to Style Redefine [formerly known as High In Style] for the interview feature. I can’t believe I forgot to post this. It has been a very busy and crazy summer and I am looking forward to a little down time soon. Fall is my very favorite time of the year, because I love apple picking, pumpkin spice latte’s, Halloween and Thanksgiving.:)

Please enjoy my interview here with Style Redefine and much love folks.
