Today we’re featuring photos from our senior shoot with Haley who was one of the hardest working nFocus Model Reps ever!!
Haley’s a senior at Hampshire High School where she’s on the dance team with her younger sister. She’s also a huge Cub fan and really wants a dog for Christmas!
She was also a total blast to work with! She brought a great variety of clothes including a couple different hats (my favorite), a tutu and her poms uniform! Haley was very comfortable in front of the camera and brought a bunch of different looks to her photos. She was just amazing to work with!
I had a chance to sit down with Haley and talk about her experience with nFocus and our Model Rep program. Here’s what she had to say…
nFocus: Thank you so much for being one of our Class of 2020 Reps! How did you first hear about the nFocus Photos Model Rep program?
Haley: I first heard about the model rep program through Instagram. A friend on my dance team posted her photos and it made me so excited to be a senior and to join the program!
n: You did a great job getting referrals. What’s your secret?
H: My “secret” to getting referrals is posting on social media!! Remind your followers and friends where your pictures were taken when you post and remind them that they can mention your name to get a discount!
n: Would you recommend the Model Rep program to your friends who are Juniors?
H: I would definitely recommend the model rep program to anyone considering it. I had a ton of fun working with Nick and received senior photos I will treasure forever.
n: What was your favorite part of your photo shoots?
H: My favorite part of my shoots was finding the perfect pose and angle for every picture. Nick always found a way to get the best angle and photo possible.
n: Is there anything you wish you’d done differently either to prepare or during your shoots?
H: If I could go back I would not change a thing about my model rep experience and prep for shoots. Nick gave a ton of tips on what to wear and how to prepare for my shoot.
n: Did you ever feel nervous during your shoots?
H: Since I did dance photos it was sometimes difficult to find the perfect pose. However, we were able to find ways to showcase my talent in the best ways possible.
n: Did the final photos turn out the way you had hoped?
H: My final photos are everything I could have ever hoped for! I am very happy with the results and I can’t wait to give them to my family members.
n: What are you looking forward to your senior year?
H: I am most excited for my senior nights! I am lucky to have two, one for football season dance and one for competition season. I have had to send off so many amazing teammates since my freshman year and it is crazy that this time it’s my turn to be sent off. I am going to miss my amazing team (which includes my little sister!) and all of the memories we have made together.
n: I know you’re a Cub fan. Do you have a favorite player?
H: Yes I am a huge cubs fan! My Grandpa grew up on the north side and has passed down his love for the team, it’s a family tradition. He used to sneak into games with his friends as a kid with the help of sailors from navy pier! I know that if he were here now he would still be a huge fan! My favorite player is definitely Javy Baez.
n: Do you remember your first favorite song or band?
H: Since I have been a dancer since age 3 I have had the opportunity to dance to so many amazing songs, but one that sticks out is “Tomorrow” from Annie! I performed this solo for my 6 year old competition season and absolutely loved it.
n: If your parents got you a dog, what kind of dog would you want?
H: I have always dreamed of having a dog!!! Unfortunately, this dream has yet to come true for me and my little sister. If I did get a dog I would want a golden doodle. They are big, playful, and have a great personality.
n: What do you want to be when you grow up?
H: When I grow up I want to be an elementary school teacher. I have always loved kids! I think this is because I am one of the oldest cousins in my family and I have been surrounded by babies my whole life, I am so lucky for this. I found my passion for teaching my junior year in a foundations to teaching class and I knew I wanted to do that for the rest of my life.
