We know: putting yourself out there is scary. You may not want to join a street team, especially if you’re an introvert. But today, we will be sharing reasons why joining a street or a senior team may just make your senior year one to remember!
-Joining a senior team offers you new opportunities: On our JMP VIP team, you will be able to take part in destination shoots, and various “playdates”. These take place at awesome locations, where we have tons of fun and bond together over new experiences. I think up new themes every year, with each team, in order to give everyone something fresh. We have done vintage airplanes, boho themes, and even been inspired by the cozy Fall season. My senior team members always walk away feeling more creative, and sometimes even come up with creative poses or ideas of their own along the way. These new experiences push you outside your comfort zone, and help you acclimate to things you’ve never done before (a skill you’ll need in college!).
-Joining a senior team gives you new friends: Maybe you don’t think you need any new friends, but I beg to differ. Often, my team members come from different schools, and you may have not crossed paths with them otherwise. Their different life backgrounds and stories can enrich your life with new friendships and fresh perspectives. Although you may already have a close circle of friends, having people by your side who are going through a similar season of life can be truly invaluable. You may be surprised at the people you meet who you will go on to trust, care about, and maintain friendships with.
-You also get to be part of our VIP couture shoot each year: ONLY the members of my VIP team get to participate in my couture shoot, which is truly the epitome of a luxe experience, complete with hair and makeup and a super glam theme. Many of our members say it’s the highlight of their time with me!
-Joining a senior team gives you something outside of school: Academics and college prep can truly consume your free time during your senior and junior years of high school. You may feel overwhelmed and unable to meet the emotional and physical demands, which is why doing something unrelated to school is so important for your physical and mental health. It’s a chance to step away from the many expectations being placed on you as you prepare to spread your wings, and to simply have fun! Of course, one of the biggest perks is that you get beautiful senior photos, but the experience is worth much more than that!
