2013 Junior Model Shoot [Clinton County Illnois Senior Photographer]

We planned for months, sent out a casting call and received tons of responses. We sorted through, drew names, and here they are – The 2013 Junior Models. This shoot was a big deal to us – I, Hillary, have been doing this (and by this, I mean dressing my friends up and photographing them) for years. I literally use to invite my friends over for sleepovers, knowing we were going to play “fashion shoot”. And, like I said on Premiere night, here we are 15 years later, still doing it. And still loving every second.

Afer we announced who would be our Junior Models, we held a Model Meeting. At this meeting we told them what it was all about and how the shoot would go. The day of the shoot, hair and make-up was completely provided by Perfectly Polished Salon (We can’t say enough good things about them, we seriously love them to peices). We had the girls bring multiple outfits and Amy, our Creative Director, and I sorted through the many duffel bags and laundry baskets to coordinate the perfect outfits. What we ended up with is even better than we imaginged.

After styling, hair and make-up, we took the girls to an outdoor location, where a dinner party was all set up for them. Although, we didn’t have dinner, we had cupcakes. But, that’s better, right? 😉 The scene was complete with gold chairs, gold glitter vases, pink flowers, pink cupcakes, and even a gold chandelier which hung from the tree above. We photographed as the sun was setting and the light was perfect! We had all the moms carrying bags and holding reflectors as they watched the entire thing (THANK YOU, MOMS!!!!). It was truly something I’ll never forget.

Then, we invited the girls back to the studio for PREMIERE NIGHT! Premiere night was everthing you’d expect. Lots of people, a red carpet (Well, ours was pink;)), door-greeters complete with a velvet rope, lots of cold drinks and shelves of amazing chocolate-covered snacks (Thanks Covered in Chocolate!) like strawberries, pretzels, oreo truffles and more. I spoke, gave out a few awards, and we dimmed the lights and watched the video we created that day. (Check it out here!) Then, we debuted the magazine and it was a total hit! I’ve always wanted to do a magazine (in keeping with my slight magazine addiction, as my husband) and I’m so happy to check that off my professional bucket list – We absolutely can’t wait to do another! The magazine will be circulated around Clinton County so be sure to keep an eye out for it! Or, come on up to the studio and see it yourself 🙂

  1. Dear Hillary, I can’t begin to thank you for the experience this has been for Makenzie. We have loved every second of it. I love the talk you had with the girls on the night at the premiere about following their dreams, and being passionate about the careers they choose. I hope they were all really listening to you, that advice was golden. and I thank you for that. It was so nice to have these little moments with Makenzie again. With school, jobs, friends, boys, and everything else that drags teenage girls in the thousand directions they go. It was so much fun seeing her be excited about something. (It was like Christmas morning when she was a little girl) and I got to share that with her. Thank you for giving me that. This who experience has been wonderful. And I promise by word of mouth & social media. I will sing your praises, not just for being an awesome photographer, but for really listening to these girls and making them all feel like beauty queens inside and out. Merry Christmas Hillary. See ya for Senior Pictures!!!

  2. Dana – I don’t even know what to say! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Your words are so sweet and meaningful! I had a wonderful time working with all the girls! Makenzie is beautiful girl, inside and out and I’m so glad she was able to be a part of this with us! Her sweet personality and quick jokes kept us all laughing, for sure! I can’t wait to see you guys in the spring! Happy Holiday to you and your family!
