Emily McLaughlin Photography’s 2022 Model Team

This application is now closed.

As a senior photographer, my senior model team is one of my favorite ways to get to know my clients and form relationships with them. I still keep in close contact with many of the girls from my original team, and it’s been amazing to see them thrive after high school. If you love adventuring, being creative, and taking pictures; this team is where you belong!

Have a question?

What is a senior model team?

A senior model team is a group of seniors who represent a senior photographer. In this case, the seniors would be representing my brand, Emily McLaughlin Photography. Seniors on my team get perks like a free photoshoot before their senior pictures and opportunities to get discounts on their senior package. 

Who can apply to be a senior model?

If you are in the Class of 2022, you qualify! Most of my work is with young womxn, but people of all gender identities are encouraged to apply. 

How much does it cost? 

Senior models pay the same amount as any client, but you get exclusive perks like the ones mentioned below. You can see a full list of my pricing by clicking here.

What characteristics are you looking for?

You must be active on some form of social media and be willing to post photos I take of you before your senior shoot. However, it is most important to me to have creative, intelligent, and kind young humans representing my brand. You must be committed to lifting others up and helping them find their own power. After all, we are all on the same team! 

What kind of perks do senior models get?

All senior models are guaranteed one free mini photoshoot before or after their senior pictures. We will work together and create some awesome images you can post on social media to let people know about Emily McLaughlin Photography. 

For every referral that ends in a booking, senior models get $50 off their own senior session.

Senior models get first dibs on senior session dates so they can pick the perfect time for their senior pictures.


I also try to plan group activities, but that idea was trampled by Covid.  We'll see how the world fares this year, but we'll still have a fun time either way!




Working with Emily for my senior photos was an absolute dream and I loved shooting with her. I was first drawn in by the tones & uniqueness of the photos but I also loved how much effort she puts into representing the client authentically. She also goes above & beyond to make sure the client is comfortable during the shoot which was huge for me. Being in front of a camera & having to pose was SUPER intimidating, however Emily made the experience 100% easier by being the best hype woman I could have ever asked for. I felt very comfortable communicating what I liked/wanted for my photos and I am so happy with how they turned out. I would recommend her to everyone — she is a phenomenal photographer & person.
