So this will be my first year really focusing on senior portraits. This is something I have been wanting to step into, but never pulled the trigger. Now, it’s time to bite the bullet and get to it! I know I am going to just love it! I have so many awesome ideas that I cannot wait to share with you guys.. but first… I am going to need some help! So with that said….

I am now accepting applications for 2013 SENIOR REPS!!

A Kristina Kerns Photography Senior Representative is a High School Senior or Junior (Males AND Females) who want to have their senior portraits taken (free of charge) way before anyone else. Senior Reps have the advance opportunity to show off their senior portraits to all of their classmates, friends, relatives and Facebook friends. A Senior Rep is a spokes model for Kristina Kerns Photography that creates a buzz about their photography experience promoting using Kristina Kerns Photography. A Rep is not asked to be a sales person; the photos sell themselves, but is asked to work hard to earn REP Credits. Senior Reps simply show off their portraits and tell their friends about their portrait experience, and then hand out Personalized Senior Rep Cards to those interested. The more sessions we book in the Rep’s honor… the more credits earned toward prints and enlargements. (Please note: Kristina Kerns Photography Senior Reps are NOT models. We are looking for fun, everyday people who are outgoing, fun and motivated.)

Requirements? A few, but they’re super easy.

  • Be a rising senior in the Richmond area (Chesterfield, Henrico, Richmond, etc.)
  • Have great style, lots of personality, and enjoy being in front of the camera
  • Be available to have one session completed by June 1, 2012 in order for Kristina Kerns Photography to create personalized promotional samples for reps to show and distribute to friends
  • Receive parent or guardian written permission to use personal session photos for marketing material
  • Represent Kristina Kerns Photography exclusively
  • Like my Facebook page
  • Agree to tell your classmates and friends about Kristina Kerns Photography and share your portraits with them

What’s in it for you?

  • The chosen seniors will get a free 1-2 hour photo session
  • 40 wallet-size rep cards with your favorite photo and my business information to hand out to your friends and classmates. For every portrait session completed in your honor, you will receive REP credits towards prints and enlargements.
  • A disc of low resolution images (with logo) to share and promote online.
  • A password-protected online gallery of all images (without logo) that can be shared across social networks
  • Ability to print photos, canvases, etc. from the online gallery
  • Kristina Kerns Photography will arrange a cosmetologist to do your hair and makeup prior to your portrait session (optional, must be scheduled ahead of time).

More Information…

Once you are chosen by Kristina Kerns Photography, we will schedule your session date. All rep sessions must be completed by June 1, 2012. The full session will take approximately 1.5 hours. You can bring as many clothing changes as you want and it would be ideal if you brought something that reflects your personality as well (instrument, sporting equipment, props, accessories, etc!) We will take all portraits at the location of your choice. Our goal is to show lots of variety and to capture as many looks as possible in your session. Your session will be unique to you and your personality. You will receive your rep cards approximately 2 weeks after your session, then, it’s time for you to go to work! Promote, promote, promote! The rep cards allow us to track the rep generating the lead for correct ‘compensation’. Without a rep card given to us by the client at the time of their photoshoot, no REP credits will be given.

The goodies…

  • Your first 5 paid referrals that bring your rep card will get 10% off their session
  • For each paid referral, you will receive 10 REP credits that can be applied towards buying any photos, canvases, etc. through your online gallery.
  • Your 10th paid referral earns you a stretched canvas print of your choice (up to an 12×12).

The ultimate reward…

You will be competing with the other chosen senior reps for a chance to win a $200 VISA gift card. Earn the most REP credits* (must be 100 or more) and receive a $200 VISA gift card.. to use how you wish, where you wish!!
