At the end of June, we kicked off the Class of 2020 Style Squad HS Senior Model Team year with a fun “Heathers” themed group shoot. For those not familiar, “Heathers” is an 80’s cult-classic movie starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. As a teen growing up in the 80’s this movie was a must-see! In recent years, it has gained popularity as a high school musical featuring angsty teens struggling with fitting in. “Riverdale” even got in on the action, devoting an entire episode to “Heathers”! Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie, check it out!
This shoot was oh so much fun and a great way to kick off the year! It was a hot day in Greensburg where the shoot took place, but my team rocked it!! They showed up looking the part and rocking the ‘tude which is totally needed to pull off the “Heathers” vibe. Dom even wore a leather duster jacket for some of the photos and, despite the hot temps, he wore it like a boss!
This was our first official shoot with the Class of 2020, but despite working together for the first time, and working with me for the first time everyone nailed it! Emma had the attitude down perfectly and Kylie had the “smize” going all day. If you don’t know what “smize” is, Tyra Banks coined the term on “America’s Next Top Model”. It’s “smiling with the eyes” - that look that draws you in and makes you wonder what is going on behind them.
After the shoot, we all went to Parkwood Inn in Greensburg for a pizza party! I gave the team their highly coveted Swag Bags, we got to know one another, and enjoyed the out-of-this-world cupcakes! Shout-out to Emma’s Mom, Courtney, who owns Coralee Cupcakes in New Kensington.
I LOVE my group this year! Both teens and parents are wonderful and we all hit it off from the start. I can’t wait to work with each of them and get to know them better over the next year. Look for their individual blog features coming over the next few months! Plus, follow along on our journey - there are a lot of fun things coming for this team (most of which they aren’t even aware of - shhhh!).
If you or someone you know is a junior this year, have them shoot me an email to get info on next year’s Style Squad! I’m also still scheduling senior sessions for this year’s Class of 2020 so reach out to get your session scheduled! I love to create sessions that are unique to each senior and can’t wait to get started on yours!!
