Welcome! I am so excited you are interested in being a part of the SAS 2021 Team. The 2020 team was amazing and we had such a great year. SO many more exciting things are in store for the 2021 team!
Before we get started I am sure you have a ton of questions so I want to share a few things about the 2021 team.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Being a SENIOR SPOKESMODEL for STEPHANIE ANNE STUDIOS is an amazing experience! Each year, I accept a limited number of high school seniors & juniors to represent my studio. You get to be a part of gorgeous photo shoots with professional make-up, earn cash, get FREE stuff, rep my brand, and best of all, meet new friends! So, how does it work? It’s pretty simple, really. We will have a group photo session this spring with all of the girls. You’ll get to experience all of the fun and pampering first hand, and you’ll have beautiful photos to show off. As the official “face” of Stephanie Anne Studios, you’ll represent my studio and brand by sharing your photos with your friends and by spreading the word about your one of a kind portrait experience. The goal is to get your friends excited about booking their own senior photos with me. When they do, they’ll get a discount on their session and you, well, you’ll get a cash referral bonus or studio credit (your choice) for EACH referral. Not too shabby, huh?
When looking to build our team we’re looking for girls who are excited about being a representative of Stephanie Anne Studios, but also girls who are willing to make time to be part of the team as a whole and open to forming new friendships. We’re looking to build a team where girls are motivated, friendly, encouraging, and outgoing. If you’re any of those things, you should most definitely apply! If you’re thinking you’re not any of those things, but would like to be then you should apply too!
SO, WHAT DOES A SAS TEAM MEMBER DO?
It’s TONS OF WORK! Kidding!!! It’s pretty easy, actually – you just promote Stephanie Anne Studios by sharing the photos from your spokesmodel shoot! Tweet them, Instagram them, Facebook them, etc. You’ll also promote SAS social media posts by simply “liking”, commenting or sharing them, and every now and then, I might ask you to tweet, Facebook or Instagram a promotion or something. You’ll also participate SNP Spokesmodel events and
activities throughout the year.
We’ll have a SAS TEAM Models & Moms event once the team is selected, as well as some fun get togethers during the school year. This year, we’re also planning to do a little giving back to the community by doing some charitable work.
As a class of 2021 Senior, part of your commitment is that you’ll also book your senior portraits with Stephanie Anne Studios. Your senior portrait session will be FREE as long as you’ve had at least one booked referral – that means the money paid now will go towards your products! When it comes time to purchase the photos from your session you’ll get………..You can visit my website to find out more about the SNP senior portrait
experience as well as session and pricing details.
What you don’t have to do is make any certain number of referrals or pressure your friends into booking (trust me, your photos will sell themselves!) BUT you will only be eligible for rep rewards, prizes and discounts if you do make referrals. Again…there is no quota to meet and there’s no selling required on your part. If you don’t have any booked referrals, no worries! You’ll still be able to enjoy an amazing senior portrait experience as a SAS senior client!
WHAT DO YOU GET FOR BEING A SAS TEAM REP?
All kinds of stuff!
First, you will receive a free SAS Team session before the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year. Imagine an all day party full of glamming, your new bffs and lots of laughs..need I say more? You’ll have complimentary professional make-up OR hair-styling done for our team session so you can get your taste of the Elite SAS senior experience, and so that you can to tell your friends about how the SAS senior portrait experience differs from that of other senior portrait photographers.
Not only will you receive web-sized photos from your SAS Team shoot to share on social media. As you make referrals and your friends book their senior portrait sessions, you earn fun stuff, like cash, gift cards to your favorite stores, or studio credit.
2021 seniors: For each booked referral you have, you receive $50 cash or studio credit (your choice). Your friends who book receive a $50 discount towards their senior portraits. After your first booked referral, you’ll have earned a FREE standard session ($200 value). After your second you’ll have earned a FREE Elite Session with the $1500 order requirement thrown out the window ($400 value). Our Elite session comes complete with professional makeup application and hair-styling, for FREE. You’ll also have priority booking status, so you can choose from the best dates available for your own senior portrait session.
2022 seniors: For each booked referral you have, you receive $75 cash or studio credit (your choice). Your friends who book receive a $50 discount towards their senior portraits.
Is There a Limit to the Number of Referrals You Can Earn?
No! The more you refer, the more you earn.
INVESTMENT: DO I NEED TO PAY ANYTHING TO BE A PART OF THIS TEAM?
This opportunity is completely free for 2021 seniors with a commitment to having your senior portraits taken by Stephanie Anne Studios and only Stephanie Anne Studios. Upon acceptance, you will be required to pay your $200 session fee and agree to a package purchase. (Packages start at $545.) For 2022 seniors, this opportunity is a $350 flat fee since you will not be having senior portraits taken yet. Remember, you have the chance to win all of this back by referrals. And if you don’t that is totally okay too. This is a choice to invest in yourself and your team during such a monumental and impactful time in your life!
CAN MOM AND DAD PARTICIPATE TOO?
Absolutely! First, no model is accepted without parent permission. Your parents are encouraged to come to our Spring meet and greet, and even attend the photo session if they’d like to. Your parents may even get referrals for you…it’s not uncommon for me to hear from new clients that it was a mom that referred them! AND, you’ll still earn your cash referral bonuses, also!
WHEN WILL I BE FINISHED AS A SENIOR MODEL?
You will be able to get referrals and the credit for them through May 1, 2021.
AWESOME! SIGN ME UP!
In order to be considered, you’ll just need to complete the SAS 2021 Team Application (link below). To be accepted you and a parent will need to attend an informal interview / information session so we can meet each other in person and find out if we’ll make a good team. The SAS Team will be selected soon after that – and THEN, we’ll make plans for a fun kickoff event and get ready for a fun jr/ senior year together!
Don’t worry, no prior modeling experience is required- I am here to guide you through all the poses. I am so excited to share my passion and start this new adventure with a new team!
