Here is the thrilling final KHP Senior Model Representative photoshoot for my OPRF 2021 rep; gorgeous high school senior photos at North Avenue Beach!! You may have already seen her golden hour fall senior photos with a guitar, spring photos at Lilacia Park, and cap and gown mini session at Oak Park-River Forest High School!
What’s a Senior Model Rep?
If you’re lost, let me catch you up to speed. I have a Senior Model rep team which is the best freaking deal ever – multiple senior photo shoots for the price of one! In return, the senior posts photos or behind the scenes images from their shoots and speaks up if people ask about a senior photographer in the area. 🙂
One Senior’s Experience as a KHP Senior Model Rep:
Here’s what Solana had to say about her experience as a KHP senior rep:
Being a KHP Senior Rep was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I don’t even know where to start! Planning the photoshoots with Kristen – where and what time to meet, what to wear, etc. – was very straight forward.
Being at the shoots was awesome. Kristen really took the time to get to know me and my interests so she could make the photos more personal. For example, I love nature, so when we went to North Ave Beach to get photos in front of the Chicago skyline, she made sure that we went not only on the concrete in front of the view, but also on the grassy areas with beautiful flowers and trees to make the city pictures more nature-filled to suit my love of nature. Kristen also would ask me if I wanted to do any specific poses, instead of only telling me to do poses she thought of. In doing these things, Kristen made me feel very comfortable and cared for, and allowed me to express myself how I wanted to.
After the photoshoots, Kristen made the lovely photos she captured available to me in a very short amount of time. It’s amazing how fast she can perfect them! I love every single one of the pictures she has taken of me and my family. It’s fun to post them at the end to share her beautiful work with my family, friends, and peers. If you are reading this and considering being a KHP Senior Rep, take this opportunity – it is a truly wonderful experience.
North Avenue Beach Senior Photos
Look at that vibrancy! Chicago shines in the sunshine! ☀️
I love the movement of her cardigan in the wind!
Enjoying the breeze and the sweet, sweet feeling of being graduated!!
Solana has a love of nature, so we made sure to include plants to break up all the man-made lines of the Chicago city skyline!
Doesn’t the water look nearly tropical?!
Yes! The flowers are actually thistles! But they sure do look pretty when they’re blurred out as foreground!
Relaxed and enjoying a delightfully sunny day!
Sorry, if you do a senior photoshoot with me I am absolutely going to ask you to “wash your hair” 🤣
Solana, thanks so much for being my Class of 2021 OPRF KHP Senior Rep!! I loved every minute of photographing you this year!
