Spokesmodel Team

A unique senior experience full of friendships, laughs and memories that last far beyond your senior year

What's a spokesmodel team?
Being a part of the of SRP spokesmodel team is a unique experience that gives high school seniors an opportunity to be a part of my business. They represent SRP in their schools and communities and they get to participate in styled photoshoots and other activities that build friendships and create memories that last far beyond senior year.

Not at all, you make friends! That’s what the whole experience is about...going out of my comfort zone took me places before & I knew it would with this too. 

My favorite part was the styles shoots!! Everyone getting ready together & having a great time!

If I had the chance without a doubt #srpalumni

Styled shoots are amazing, you feel so gorgeous & everyone else is having such a good time & you get the prettiest pictures for your instagram. 

There was never any drama, thank god we’re all pretty level headed & all grown. 

My SRP spokesmodel team experience started with me applying & getting picked obviously, but it turned into so much more than that. I gained 11 best friends, and became best friends with Serena! I got pretty pictures for my Instagram, & overall became so much more confident about myself!

Not at all, we all really opened up to each other when we met the first time. Of course you’re nervous, but you get over that really fast. 

All the different people you meet. I would’ve never met any of these girls if it wasn’t for this and honestly i’m thankful. 

Definitely! It’s a fun time and you also get the perk of having cute pictures to post. 

Styled shoots are a lot of fun/a cool experience. First, you get your hair & make up done. Also, everyone comes in their pj’s and it’s almost like a giant sleepover. Then you get to go out and just take a bunch of cute pictures and there’s always good food. 

No

The beginning is of course a little awkward. You have to take pictures with people you just met as if you’re best friends. You also are doing all these weird poses that you’re not used to. The end result is always what’s in mind though. You get used to the new people and they soon become friends. You’re all in the same boat in so many ways it makes it so much easier. The group is filled with so many bright, caring, supportive, and positive people it’s crazy. To be a part of it is something to be thankful for. The overall experience has been really good for me. I would recommend this to anyone even considering it.

Yes, because when you first meet people it’s always awkward but I definitely feel like once you get to know everyone you feel more comfortable and all the awkwardness just goes out the window.

I honestly think my favorite part was just meet new people and getting to learn how to be comfortable in front of the camera and learning what poses are best for you and your body language and the amazing pictures you get out of it.

They are super fun I love how we all just bring our closets and how we basically pick and choose what we are gonna wear and even if you feel like you have nothing to wear it’s good to know the team has your back and you will find something to wear that makes you look great in your photos

Styled shoots are amazing, you feel so gorgeous & everyone else is having such a good time & you get the prettiest pictures for your instagram. 

I don’t think so I didn’t have any drama with anyone. All the girls were super nice and supportive. 

My experience with the SRP team was a great experience all around wouldn’t change anything about it. I’m so glad I got to be apart of such an amazing team and I’m so glad I got to work with an amazing photographer who makes you feel so comfortable when you are in front of the camera. Everyone was super supportive and I definitely know I’ve made life long friends.

It was only awkward when we first met but once we started shooting I was a lot more comfortable. 

Having a lot of options during the shoots and being encouraged by Serena.

Yes because it was really fun and I made good friends

They’re really fun because you get to dress up and take pictures in fun locations

No

I had a lot of fun because I really enjoy modeling and and dressing up for a shoot. Serena is really encouraging during the shoot and helps everyone pose. I made friends and it’s really fun to hang out at the locations.

At first it is, but after like 5 minutes of hanging out with everyone it’s not at all, especially if you’re outgoing!

It was definitely getting to meet new people and make new friends, and of course the amazing pictures that come with it.

Yes, no doubt about it. It’s such a fun and unique experience that you can’t really find anywhere around us. 

The styled shoots are super fun and a great time where you get to hangout with your friends while getting ready for the shoots, the environment is great and of course you get free food.

Literally never, we all have fun together and so there was never any issue with drama.

I had a lot of fun being on the team. Serena makes everyone feel comfortable off and on the camera! She’s super personable and isn’t just focused on the pictures, she truly cares about everyone’s well-being.

Not at all!! I think us all being nervous actually helped to break the ice. And we did a bunch of group activities when we first met that helped us to get to know each other. 

Geesh. This is a hard question because every part has been really nice. But I'd say my favorite was probably our mini session because i feel like we all got to know eachother really well!! 

I definitely would. When I joined I was excited for the pictures but even more so the friends I'd make and these girls have been so kind and welcoming that I'd 100% step up and do it again. Also its just something so unique that not very many people get to do. 

Styled shoots are so fun. Its cool to be able to see everyone's transformation from their pajamas to done up really nicely. The car rides to the locations are also really fun because even though we all see eachother at the house and while we're taking photos its nice to be able to sit down and just listen to music together. Also every shoot just feels like a big adventure and i love adventuring. 

Not that I know of. The only drama i guess was trying to figure out what to do with our hair. Everyone on the team gets along really well and is just so nice. 

Well when I joined it was a time in my life where I felt really lost. I didnt really have that many friends at the time and I was trying to figure out exactly who I was (typical 16 year old girl problems). And so becoming a part of Serenas team was kind of like a blessing. Everyone was so so nice and i didn't feel like i was alienated or like people thought I was weird or anything. I just felt super accepted. The shoots are so much fun, and especially the senior session being able to hangout one on one with Serena was so nice. I just am so thankful for gaining a really great group of friends and a wonderful role model who I can talk to about anything.

Not at all. We all bonded very quickly

Getting full glam and hanging out with the team all day!

Absolutely

So fun! I love going to the different locations

Not at all

The overall experience was amazing. I’m so happy I got to meet so many beautiful girls who I never would’ve known if it wasn’t for the Team.

not at all! it was so nice and refreshing to meet new girls. After a few minutes being together we were already comfortable and laughing uncontrollably! 

My favorite part of being a SRP Spokesmodel was how instantly comfortable i was in front of the camera by all the positivity and having serena and all the girls hyping me up! 

Most definitely! Girls nowadays aren’t able to expirence things like this so having the opportunity to be apart of a team so loving and having it be a no judgement zone is so nice! 

Styled shoots are sooo much fun! Every styled shoot there’s a different theme and the good thing about the team is that we all basically bring our closets and pick our outfits together so we all look good together! 

There is never any drama within the team! We all come from different schools so we don’t see eachother everyday to know everything about everyone.

SRP Spokemodel Team is a group of amazing and uniquely different girls! With Serena’s amazing talent behind the camera she captures beautiful pictures of everyone and shows every single one of us how truly beautiful we all are inside and out! Once you are part of a team like Serena’s it’s hard to find something else that compares because it’s such a great and enjoyable expirence!

I wouldn’t say it was awkward just intimidating because there was girls who already knew each other. 

Meeting all of the girls!!

100% it was such a cool experience I met girls I never would of if I didn’t do it. 

SO FUN!! you get to get ready with all the girls and talk and then go take pictures!!

NO!!!

Overall I met some amazing girls and am so happy I stepped out of my comfort zone and applied to be a spokesmodel.

At first yes because we didn’t know each other but then we grew to be good friends

My favorite part was the other girls, we have so much fun at the shoots and when we hangout! 

Yes I would, I wouldn’t have met the girls if I didn’t join and I love them all, I think the experience is just so fun and you get super cute photos as a plus:)

They are so much fun!! Everyone talks to each other and laughs and has a good time and is super comfortable around each other.

No not at all

I love this team. The girls, Serena, the atmosphere, it’s so great. I’ve never had so much fun I love everyone in this, I wish it lasted forever.

Kinda at first because all of my friends are usually guys, but after meeting the girls it becomes so fun!

Spending time with these awesome ladies and having good pics for the gram 

Yes! 100 times yes!! It’s been such a fun and “get out of your comfort zone “ experience if you aren’t used to being in front of a camera. 

So fun! It’s such a good experience and it’s a big confidence booster. 

No

It’s such a fun experience. I’d recommend it to anyone with even the slightest interest. You become friends with people you would’ve never spoken to. You also get confidence about yourself. Serena takes fabulous pictures that you can’t help but want to share.
