Why should you become a SCC Senior VIP?
SO MANY PERKS! If multiple photo shoots throughout your senior year sounds right up your alley, then you should definitely become a Senior VIP client! A limited number of Senior VIP spots open each January and are first come, first serve. Be sure you join the waitlist to make sure you receive your exclusive invite!
SO WHAT IS A SENIOR VIP PROGRAM?
How does it work? It's pretty simple, really. You'll have a studio photo session before you start school senior year. You'll get to experience all of the fun and you'll have beautiful photos to show off. As the official “face” of Shana C. Carter Senior Portraiture, 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 senior portrait experience. The goal is to get your friends excited about booking their own senior photos with me. When they do, you'll get a $50 cash referral bonus or studio credit (your choice) for EACH referral. Not too shabby, huh?
WHO CAN BE A SENIOR VIP?
Any high school junior getting ready to start their senior year! I look for high school senior girls (or guys) who are outgoing, involved in school, community activities, and who are just all around nice people! No modeling experience is required; I’m looking for natural, genuine high school seniors who love to be photographed!
WHAT DOES A SENIOR VIP DO?
So what does a Senior VIP have to do? It's TONS OF WORK! JUST kidding!!! It's pretty easy, actually - you just promote Shana C. Carter Photography by sharing the photos from your shoots! Tweet them, Instagram them, Facebook them, etc. You'll also promote SCC 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 have the opportunity to participate in extra photo shoots throughout the year.
As a Senior VIP, part of your commitment is that you'll also book a full senior portrait session with Shana C. Carter Photography. You can visit my website to find out more about the SCC 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 cash rewards (or studio credits) if you do. 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 SCC senior client!
WHAT DO YOU GET IN RETURN FOR BEING A SENIOR VIP?
All kinds of stuff!
First, you will receive a free mini studio model rep session before the beginning of your senior year. You’ll also receive web-sized photos from your shoot to share on social media.
Plus, all of my Senior Reps will get to do their senior sessions first! Plus, if you choose to do a second senior session later in the year, you will receive a second gift voucher for $250 savings - that covers your entire session fee!
You will also receive two additional free mini shoots! You choose what type of shoot - BFF, cap & gown/college tee, sports, sunflowers, it’s up to YOU!
After your official senior shoot, you will have the opportunity to participate in extra shoots as they are scheduled. These shoots are totally optional.
Another perk, and this one is really for mom, is special VIP pricing for a photo shoot for your family. Senior VIP families have the opportunity to schedule a fall family mini session with me. I usually only open these to former clients, but this year I am including my Senior VIP families, too! Of course, this is totally optional but I know how important it is to capture that family portrait before you graduate.
HOW DO REFERRALS WORK?
As you make referrals and your friends book their senior portrait sessions, you earn CASH!
For each booked referral you have, you receive $50 cash or $50 studio credit (your choice).
Is there a limit to the number of referrals you can earn? Nope! The more you refer, the more you earn. Can my mom and dad participate, too? Absolutely! First, no VIP is accepted without parent permission. Your parents are encouraged to come to all photo shoots. 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!
You will be able to get referrals and the credit for them through May 1 of your graduating year.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?
Beyond the senior session, it’s up to you! You will have the opportunity to participate in shoots throughout the year, but nothing is required. You’re busy. I get it. You may be cautious that becoming a Senior VIP may take too much time out of your already jam-packed schedules. I assure you my Senior VIP program is simple and easy. All of the extra sessions are optional so if you don’t want to participate or have other plans - no worries! There aren’t any mandatory informational meetings, meet and greets or huge group shoots like some of those other teams you may have heard about.
DOES IT COST EXTRA TO BE A PART OF THE SENIOR VIP PROGRAM?

WHAT ARE THE EXTRA SHOOTS?
Any small group sessions or themed sessions that I plan throughout the year. I like to call them “pop-up shoots”. When I plan a session, I will reach out to all the Senior VIPs to see who is able or wants to participate. These will be first come, first serve opportunities. These are fun, creative shoots!
For extra sessions you will receive an app with web-sized digital image of each finished image from your shoot. These images are meant for sharing online, through email and social media and are not intended for printing.
I WANT TO BE A VIP!
Each year, in January, I open my Senior VIP program for the next class. I begin by sending out exclusive invites by email only to those who are on my WAITLIST. What does this mean? You HAVE to get on my waitlist in order to receive your invite! You can add your name to the waitlist below!
