   Jessica St. Johns Photography is now looking for Senior Reps for the Class of 2013!  If you are a high school junior who is graduating next year, this means YOU!

What is a Senior Rep?
What we're looking for in a Senior Rep is someone who is outgoing, friendly, and just an all around genuine person with a great sense of style.  Someone who will represent Jessica St. Johns Photography and ONLY Jessica St. Johns Photography to their friends and classmates.  Basically this means that we'll take your senior pictures for free, then give you some really cool stuff to show off to your friends. We are looking for five Senior Reps who are currently attending high school in Lucas, Monroe, or Wood County, and will accept no more than two Senior Reps per school.

What do you get out of being one of our Senior Reps?
1. Two free one-hour photo sessions. The first must take place by June 1, 2012.  This is the session that you will use in your advertising for us. The date of the second session is entirely up to you, as long as it is completed by the end of this year.  We will decide the location for your first shoot together, the location of the second is your choice!  You may bring as many outfits as you like to change into, and at your second session you may bring along a friend to join you in a few of your photos.
2. One online gallery containing the photos from both of your shoots.  These will be stamped with our watermark logo, and are for you to post on your Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else that you like!  You are NOT allowed to remove our watermark from any of these photos, but you may purchase the digital copies of all of your photos, which will come without our logo and you will be free to post and print them as you like. 
3.  One 8x10 photo, one 5x7 photo, and eight wallets.  You may choose which photos will be printed for these.
4.  A Brag Book with photos that we select from your first session.
5.  50 Senior Rep Cards with pictures of our choosing from your first session on it, and our contact information on the back.  These are what you will pass out to your friends and family when they ask you who took your pictures!  Don't worry, you are NOT required to discuss pricing with your friends or advertise for us in any way that you do not feel comfortable with, beyond passing out these cards and posting your photos with our watermark on Facebook.  Each client who books a session with us (Senior or otherwise) and brings one of your cards will receive a discount off of their session.  And for each card that is redeemed with your picture on it, YOU will get a $10 referral credit to use towards purchasing prints or digital copies from us!

1. As a Senior Rep for Jessica St. Johns Photography, you must agree to represent us exclusively.
2. You WILL need your parent's or guardian's permission to participate.
3. You and your parent/guardian will have to meet with me to sign a model release so that I can use your photos in our advertising.
4. Your first session must be completed by June 1, 2012, and your second session must be booked by July 1, 2012.
5. Your $10 referral credit will only be issued under the condition that the client redeeming your Rep Cards books their session by March 1, 2013.  Credits are only issued once a session has been fully paid for and completed.
6. You must agree to pass out you Senior Rep Cards to your friends, and you may not remove our watermark from the free images that we give you from your session to post online.  The more cards that you pass out, the more chances you have of earning referral credit, so it's really a win-win situation for both of us!

How can you become a Senior Rep?
We've made it super easy for you, just apply HERE!  We are accepting applications through March 31, and we will contact you after that if you've been chosen to be one of our Senior Reps!

Homeschoolers: I haven't forgotten about you!  In addition to the five students that I will be accepting from area schools, I will also accept up to two homeschool Senior Reps.  So if you are homeschooled and meet all of the criteria above, please feel free to apply!

   Chip and Natassia were married at the gorgeous Ramada Inn on Secor.  People, if you are like me and always thought this place looked boring and rundown when you drove past, it would serve you well to give it a second chance-it's BEAUTIFUL inside.

   I shot this wedding as assistant to the wonderful Sarah Modene.  To see her photos of the event, go HERE.
