Are you interested in applying for the 2018 Hope Taylor spokesmodel team? You've come to the right place!
The Hope Taylor spokesmodel team is a group of local high school seniors that represent the face of Hope Taylor Photography for the duration of their senior year. Spokesmodels are chosen through an application process and receive countless perks including participation in photoshoots, digital images to share on social media, complimentary hair and makeup, group activities and events, cash bonuses, styled shoots and more!
With over 100 applications each year, the spokesmodel team is an exciting and highly-anticipated opportunity for many local seniors. Representatives are chosen based off of their involvement in their community, outgoing personalities, dedication to the Hope Taylor brand and excitement about their senior year!
The session was exactly what my business needed, we went over everything; shooting, editing, marketing, taxes, and ended with a photo shoot. She gave me everything I needed to move my business across the country and thrive! Mentoring with Hope was the best decision I made for my business this year!
My mentoring session with Hope has spun my whole business around. I am branding, I am booking and best of all, I am working on cohesiveness and confidence and everything in between. When I walked in to our meeting, it was my "last hope" -- I was literally considering dropping it all! And now, I've booked 10 weddings for next year in a city I've only lived in for 4 weeks!”
During our mentoring session, Hope encouraged me to raise my prices, which I was nervous to do, and not even two weeks after I met with her I have already booked someone at my higher package. My experience in doing a mentoring session with Hope was very beneficial for me and I only wish I lived closer to her so that I could do it again.
I had been wanting to start my own business but had no idea how to go about it. The mentoring session gave me all the knowledge to start and run a photography business. I left with so much confidence and felt SO inspired! Taking a mentoring session with Hope was one of the best decisions I have made for my business!
I hadn't officially started my business before our intensive, but working with Hope gave me push of confidence I needed to make things official. She taught me about running a business (things I'd never even considered) and during the sample photo shoot, gave me tips that boosted my confidence in interacting with clients. I couldn't be more grateful for Hope's support and encouragement!
Being a 2017 spokesmodel has exceeded my expectations times 1,000,000!!! I have had such a blast meeting all the girls, and have become close friends with quiet a few of them as well! Getting to know Hope has also been such an awesome experience, that I honestly wouldn't trade for the world! Being on the team has made my senior year so much fun, and I hope goes the same for the new 2018 team as well!
Everything from participating in styled shoots and modeling for mentoring sessions, to creating amazing friendships with the other spokesmodels, and gaining a further appreciation for what goes behind a photography business- being a Hope Taylor Spokesmodel was an incredible experience! Hope does a wonderful job of making everyone behind the camera feel confident and comfortable, which made all of the shoots so much fun. She has an exquisite eye for detail and all of the styled shoots/events we were able to participate in were perfectly planned.
From the very beginning to the end, my experience was full of memories, meeting new friends, and of course taking pictures with other gorgeous girls. Hope makes you feel glamorous inside and out, no matter who you are or what others think of you and that is what I loved most about being apart of the spokesmodel team!
There are no hidden fees or events that require payment as a part of the spokesmodel program! However, you are required to book your senior portrait session with Hope Taylor and pay the full cost of that session ($600) upon signing the spokesmodel contract. This fee can be earned back through referrals!
Spokesmodels will be chosen by March 1st , and all members of the team will receive an invitation in the mail to the spokesmodel meet & greet event on Sunday, March 19th! This event will be held for all spokesmodels and their parents at the Hope Taylor studio in downtown Fredericksburg.
Your number one responsibility as a spokesmodel is to refer friends and family to Hope Taylor Photography for their senior portraits. This includes sharing on social media frequently, as well as excitedly participating in spokesmodel-related events.

I will reach out to your parents about the spokesmodel program if you are chosen as a part of the team to ensure that they are on board and aware of your responsibilities as a spokesmodel. Let them know about your application so they aren't surprised by my email!
