Class of 2014 Senior Spokesmodels! (Lowville, Carthage, Beaver Falls, Copenhagen NY Senior Photography)

Everyone meet my 5 awesome Senior Spokesmodels!  Last week they got the full treatment…hair and makeup, limo ride, swag bags and a fun group session in the studio!  We had a blast!  These girls are all so lovely and were a breeze to photograph!  I really enjoyed talking with them and getting to know them!  This year they will be working for me by passing out cards to their friends and telling them all about our studio!  I’m really looking forward to an awesome senior season this summer!

Right now is a great time to start booking your 2014 senior session for this summer!  I have a great discount running that will ONLY last a few more weeks!  All session fee’s are 1/2 off and if you book before June 30th you will get 20% off any print collection and 2 free sets of wallets!  This is a great deal and it definitely won’t be offered again for the rest of the summer!  SO take advantage now!
