Today we’re featuring our senior photo shoot with Allison who’s just about to start her senior year at Cary Grove High School!
Allison loves photography and normally is more comfortable behind the camera, but her experience as an nFocus Model Rep gave her a chance to be in front of the camera for a change and she was a natural! We ended up with a ton of great photos and I loved helping Allison and her Mom narrow them all down to choose their favorites for their album!
We sat down with Allison to talk about her experience with nFocus and our Model Rep program and here’s what she had to say…
nfocus: How did you first hear about the nFocus Photos Model Rep program?
Allison: I heard about it through Faith Poppe who just graduated. She spoke very highly of the program and couldn’t say enough good things! I was very intrigued
n: Did you enjoy being a rep?
A: I loved being a rep! The photos all came out absolutely amazing and I loved seeing my photos on the nFocus Instagram as well!
n: Is there anything you wish you’d done differently either to prepare or during your shoots?
A: Definitely pick out more fun accessories, maybe some fun hats or glasses, something to spice up the photos even more!
n: What was your favorite part of your shoots?
A: Just how much fun they were! Everything was very low-key and I didn’t feel pressured or nervous during any of the shoots.
n: Do you feel like you were adequately coached through the shoots?
A: I was definitely adequately coached. Going into them I was quite nervous, but Nick knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable in all the photos. In the beginning of the indoor shoot I felt awkward, but that very quickly went away.
n: Your Mom was at your shoots. Did you feel like it was a good bonding experience for the two of you?
A: It was a great bonding experience for us! It was very fun picking out my outfits for it as well as at the shoots listening to her advice and compliments.
n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?
A: No! They turned out WAY better than I expected! All the colors in nature mixed with my many different outfits created beautiful photos I will love forever!
n: Would you recommend nFocus to your friends?
A: I would definitely recommend nFocus to anyone who is looking for beautiful photos with an amazing photographer!
n: What are you looking forward to your senior year?
A: I’m definitely looking forward to the football games as well as all my classes as this is more of a low-key easy year for me.
n: What’s something most people don’t know about you?
A: I absolutely love drawing! Art for me is so much fun and so calming.
n: I know you like taking photos. Which do you prefer, being in front of or behind the camera?
A: I love being in front of the camera. Photos are something you can cherish forever and as much as I love making memories for others, I have to say I like being in front of the camera more!
n: Do you remember your first favorite song?
A: Not my first favorite song, but my first favorite artist was Taylor Swift. When I was younger I loved her music so much.
n: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I hope to someday be a nurse practitioner. As of right now I’m on the path for that.
n: If you had a week to go anywhere, where would you go?
A: Bora Bora! Just relaxing there in the turquoise waters sounds so beautiful, especially with family.
