Ali Johnson Photography – Senior Models | Class of 2018

It’s hard to believe it, but it’s already time to start thinking about my AJP Senior spokesmodels for the Class of 2018!

AJP Senior models receive all kinds of perks including free sessions so if you are currently a junior in the Charlottesville area and will be graduating high school in 2018, then check out the information below!

What is an Ali Johnson Photography senior model?

A senior model is basically a spokesperson for Ali Johnson Photography. I’ll use them for my marketing materials throughout the year and their job is to spread the word about my photography business.

What does an AJP senior model receive?

  • A free mini-session during the spring or summer before your senior year. This will be combined with all of the other AJP models and will be a great opportunity for everyone to get to know each other.
  • An extended senior session, including your yearbook photo.
  • A free stylized mini session based on the theme that we decide on. For my 2016 reps, we had color inspired sessions, for 2017 reps we’re having icon sessions …who know what we’ll come up with for the class of 2018! 🙂
  • The opportunity to participate in free mini-sessions with me through out the year. I often want to test out new lighting techniques or backdrops. This year all of my 2017 models received extreme sports sessions as an extra perk!
  • A password protected online gallery with the digital images from your sessions. You will be able to download the photos from the gallery and your family can order quality prints and products from my professional photo lab!
  • A personalized mobile app with photos from your sessions throughout the school year.
  • All in all you’ll have a blast and will receive TONS of amazing photos to document your senior year!

  • Modeling experience is not required!
  • I want you to have a great style, an outgoing, friendly personality and enjoy being in front of the camera.

How do I become an AJP senior model?

  • If you’re interested in being considered as an AJP senior model for the Class of 2018, fill out a Model Application .
  • This is your opportunity to let me know all about you! I had a record number of students apply last year and the decision process was extremely hard! Part of what helped narrow it down was what they applicants had to say! I’m looking for people who are from all walks of life so be sure to tell me about your thoughts, hobbies and interests…anything that makes you tick!
  • Though my senior models consist mostly of girls I have two guys on my 2017 team and would love to have more with the Class of 2018!

Aurora & Savannah | FCHS | 2017 – Charlottesville Senior Portraits

Tonight on my blog we have Aurora & Savannah, two of my senior spokesmodels from Fluvanna County High School’s Class of 2017. Between my busy schedule and theirs, we had the hardest time getting them in front of the camera! A few days before Christmas, we had a break in the cold weather so I got the two of them together for a mini-session. After they had their make-up done, we headed over to Food Lion. Now before you think I’m crazy, just hear me out! A few days earlier, I was driving around looking for interesting locations when I drove past the Food Lion. Behind the store there was this really cool , weathered retaining wall. I thought it would be a great place for a few photographs and Aurora & Savannah were down to give it a try!

When we got there, we also found a truck parked in the loading dock and a set of stairs we could use. It was perfect! Because we going to be changing locations so quickly, I decided to shoot these photos using only natural light. That may not seem like a big deal to some of you but I use my lights during every single session so it’s really rare for me! One of the benefits about using natural light is the incredible catchlights you can get in your subjects eyes. Aurora and Savannah have beautiful eyes on their own but with natural light and a reflector? They looked over to top gorgeous!

We then drove over to Lake Monticello Rescue Squad. Another unusual location, I know but I’d spied a interesting looking place behind their parking lot. The sun was starting to set and it turned all of the dead grass and trees the most beautiful orange color…Aurora & Savannah looked fabulous! At the end of the session we headed back to my neighborhood for a few shots in the pine trees. Last but not not least, the girls pulled out their Christmas sweaters for one of the cutest shots I’ve ever taken! I had SO much fun with you Aurora & Savanna! You guys made the afternoon an absolute blast and I can’t wait for your next sessions!

Yep, these were shot beside a Food Lion truck! Sometimes you just gotta step outside the box and try a crazy idea! 🙂

Aurora is always happy and smiling so serious photos aren’t really her thing. I always take a few though. Can you blame me when she looks like this? Aurora you are stunning!!

We’d been talking about taking this photo of Savanna with her fur hood for months. So glad we finally had the chance to shoot it. Savanna, you look absolutely amazing!!

Grace | GHS | 2017 – Senior Portraits Charlottesville

Tonight on my blog we have Grace, my senior spokesmodels from Goochland High School’s Class of 2017. I always have so much fun photographing Grace! She is one of the most laid back, easy going people I’ve ever dealt with and she’s always up for anything!

We had her session in downtown Charlottesville. I love all kinds of sessions but urban senior portraits are my favorite because two of them are never the same!! You never know when you’re going to find an awesome brick wall covered with ivy or an alley that you’ve never noticed before. Both of which happened during Grace’s session! We finished up her session at the IX Art Park  to take advantage of the incredible graffiti. I loved the new addition of “Lead with Love”…that’s some seriously good advice!  Thanks for another fabulous session Grace. I look forward to the next time…including your Gwen Stefani Icon Session!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year! This fall was my busiest season ever and I am honored that so many people have chosen me to take their senior portraits in the Charlottesville area!

Tonight on my blog we have Matt, one of my senior spokesmodels from Fluvanna County High School’s Class of 2017. Matt is so awesome in front of the camera, seriously it’s like working with a real GQ model!! 🙂 I love his serious model stare so much, that it’s a struggle to remember to tell him to smile!

We had his session in downtown Palmyra area. I love that within this small location, I can get so many different looks out of a session. We were in the middle of the County but managed to get a little of a natural and a little of an urban feel to the photos. It was the perfect combination with Matt’s awesome style. Thanks for another fabulous session Matt…I look forward to the next time! Especially your John Mayer Icon Session!

Kristen | WMHS | 2017 – Charlottesville Senior Portraits

Tonight on my blog we have Kristen, my senior spokesmodels from William Monroe High School’s Class of 2017. We started her session at the Dell at the University Of Virginia. Talk about a great location! I’d been here before but this was my first time going in the fall…what a difference! Tons of beautiful fall foliage, dried grasses and red berries. This time I even found a big rock structure. It was beautiful! While I’m on the subject of beautiful things, check out Kristen’s eyes! I’ve photographed her a few times before (one of the perks of being an AJP model) and every time, I freak out about gorgeous they are! 🙂

After we finished up at the Dell, we moved on to Darden, another one of my favorite locations. Kristen loves reading so we wanted to take a few shots of her with some of her favorite novels. I always try to make the tone of the photo match the expression and surroundings of the subject. When you’re holding a copy of Peter Pan, you probably want to be smiling. On the other hand, Les Miserables, pretty much demands a serious expression! 🙂 As always, thanks for a fabulous afternoon Kristen. I look forward to your ballet session in February!
