Caitlin's Story | Superior Senior Rep - Suwanee, GA

A few weeks ago I had a message from a young lady, who is a Senior in high school and will be graduating in 2013. Caitlin wanted to find out my prices for a Senior Portrait Session and she had been referred to me by a client. (I love it when this happens - this is exactly the way I want to run and grow my business - and I love my clients for referring friends and family.)

After some correspondence I found out that Caitlin's Dad had recently suffered a bad stroke and since he was a single parent the family (she has 3 siblings) relied on him for everything. Caitlin told me that she was looking for a "non-budget-breaking way" of taking some nice and personalized Senior Pictures. I can't blame her.

The next day I was in the yard doing some work, when it suddenly hit me. To help Caitlin and her Dad I would offer her to be my Senior Rep. This was divine intervention. After offering her the opportunity, things went super fast. We met for coffee 2 Saturdays ago and we had our session together this past Saturday.

Let me tell you, this sweet girl has got it together! She has a top academic record and is all set for college - she knows what she's going to study and she plans to take it all the way to a Ph.D. She is beautiful inside and out and was willing to move the world to get some great shots - and did we get some great shots! Oh.....my......word!

The day after our session I went to work on editing some of the pictures and at times I thought I'd died and gone to photographer's heaven - these images have soul, they have pep and they are classy. I believe our story is reflected perfectly!

I feel very emotional about Caitlin and her situation. I look at her and in a way I see myself at 17 when my mother suddenly passed away and I had to grow up from one day to the next - although I think she's far more focused than I was.

I'm hoping that many of her fiends and family will book a session with me, so I can help her get her image CD and prints and perhaps even other products for free through my Rep Program. This is me giving back to my community in a very personal and relevant way. 

I look forward to getting the calls and emails! Let's show this girl how much we care - Caitlin deserves it all and more.

And now, here are some images from our session. I'm sure you'll agree that they are spectacular.

Katja Wright Photography - Calling Senior Reps - TWENTY {13} THIRTEEN

  senior rep

You don’t look like everyone else, why should your photos?

Katja Wright Photography is kicking off its Senior Rep Program and you could be one of our spokes models for the class of 2013! If you’re not familiar with a senior rep program, it’s a way for seniors to have a fabulous FREE senior portrait session with the opportunity to earn additional discounts on prints and products, just by helping me get more clients through referrals.

{How it Works}
You complete a 1-2 hour senior portrait session with me – up to 3 clothing changes in various locations. After the shoot you will receive some “senior rep cards” that will have a photo from your session on the front, and my contact information on the back. It’s basically like your own personal business card. For each person you refer, that books and completes a session with me, you will receive additional discounts and credits towards your CD of images and print order. The more you refer the more you receive. It’s like having a really fun part-time job and you get back what you put in!!

{What you Get}
  • A Free on-location Senior Portrait Session tailored to you.
  • 5-10 watermarked web images to use on Facebook so you can show your pictures off to your friends.
  • 50 Rep Cards with photos from your session to hand out to your friends and family.
  • Opportunity to earn additional “referral points” that you can use towards a CD of your images, prints and products.
  • And of course a fun experience and chance to feel like a model and work it in front of the camera.

{Referral Points}
1-5 Referrals – 10% off print order and 10 points per referral
6-10 Referrals –10% off print order and  15 points per referral
10-15 Referrals –15% off print order and 20 points per referral
16-20 Referrals – 20% off print order and 25 points per referral

{1 point = $1}
{Requirements & Responsibilities}
In order to be eligible to be a 2012 rep for Katja Wright Photography you must be a student graduating in 2013, must be active and involved in your school and community, have an outgoing personality, fun style, and most importantly, must be willing to spread the word about Katja Wright Photography to your friends and family and anyone that will listen. ANY session booked and completed from your referral – whether it’s a baby, family, couples or another senior session – will count towards your rewards, so tell everyone you know about your session and of course SHOW them your photos!
·        You or your parents (if you are a minor) must sign a model release.
·        You must use my watermarked image as your Facebook picture until you graduate.
·        Reps that have ZERO referrals by December 31, 2012, of their Senior Year, will be required to pay the $250 session fee that was waived at the time of their original session.

{How to Apply}
If you meet these requirements please send an e-mail containing your NAME, AGE, CITY, SCHOOL, a FEW SENTENCES EXPLAINING WHY YOU THINK YOU WOULD BE THE PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR THIS PROGRAM, and HOW YOU ARE INVOLVED IN YOUR SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY.
