What is the Katie Powell Photography Spokesmodel Team?
The Spokesmodel Team is made up of high school girls who are graduating in 2019 and 2020. The spokesmodels will represent Katie Powell Photography for the duration of their junior and senior year (depending on what year they graduate). They will be featured in much of the marketing material that I create throughout the year and will help to spread the word about my business. In exchange, Spokesmodels will receive tons of perks including the opportunity to participate in a variety of photoshoots, tons of digital images to keep and share, fun team bonding activities, giveaways, and get their very own senior portrait session.
How much does it cost to participate in the Spokesmodel Team Program?
The program fee is $375 (the cost of a senior portrait session). This is the ONLY fee that is ever associated with the program and can be earned back through referrals. A referral is defined as a senior session that is booked with a signed contract and retainer. Every time a spokesmodel receives a referral, $50 from their original $375 payment will be returned. Each spokesmodel has the opportunity to earn back all of the money that they originally paid to participate in the program. If desired, spokesmodels can choose to receive their money back in the form of print credit ($50 value). Print credit can be used towards purchasing products such as photo books, canvases, prints, and graduation announcements.
When is the program fee due?
The $375 program fee will be due once you have officially been accepted to Spokesmodel Team. After that has taken place, I will send you the Spokesmodel Team contract and an invoice for the program fee. The program is non-refundable unless earned back through referrals. If you have additional questions about the program fee, feel free to contact me by phone or email.
What is included in a senior portrait session?
Senior sessions last 2 hours and take place at the location(s) of your choice. Sessions include 2-3 outfit changes, a minimum of 30 fully edited high resolution images, a beautiful online gallery, a print release and an 11×14 print of your favorite image. Professional hair and makeup is not included, but can be added for an additional fee. Parents, siblings and best friends are welcome to tag along at the session for encouragement and a quick photo or two.
Photo books, prints, graduation announcements and other products can be purchased at an additional price.
Senior sessions for spokesmodels who are graduating in 2019 will take place this upcoming summer/fall (May-Oct.), while senior sessions for 2020 graduates will be scheduled for the summer/fall (May-Oct.) of 2019.

What is the purpose of the mini sessions?
The mini sessions will be the first photo shoot that we do together as a team. Professional hair and makeup will be provided as a special treat and we will get images of the entire team as well as headshots of each model. All of the girls will get to keep the images from the shoot. The images will also be used to introduce each model in a blog post feature on my site. This will be a great time to bond as a team and to get used to jumping in front of the camera.
What are styled photoshoots?
Styled photoshoots are primarily used for marketing purposes. They often entail collaboration with other local vendors and have a specific theme. The photo shoots often include professional hair and makeup and props. The images from styled photoshoots will be used in marketing material for my business, and may be submitted to blogs and magazines such as Senior Style Guide and Modern Teen Style that specifically feature senior portrait photography.
What type of personal development activities will the team participate in?
It is important to me that each spokesmodel ends her time with Katie Powell Photography with more confidence and a greater understanding of her strengths, interests and goals. Occasionally, we will get together as a team to activities like the Strengths Finder Test, creating vision boards, learning how to set and achieve goals and how to have healthier lifestyles. On top of all this, we will also spend time doing fun things together like bowling, hiking, family dinners and holiday parties throughout the year.
