Japan House + U of I Arboretum, Urbana, IL
Spring can be hit or miss. When the flowers come in bloom, they can last for weeks or days, depending on weather. So when the trees began to bloom at the U of I Arboretum, I knew I wanted to spend as much time there as possible. I texted both the 2017 and 2018 spokesmodel team to see if any of the girls would be available for a quick pop-up shoot, and we had some of each! Ashlyn and Kaylee are both spokesmodels you’ve seen before, but today I get to introduce you to four of the 2018 senior spokesmodels! Lindsey, Sidney, Kalista, and CJ are all PBL juniors who are excited to start their senior year! I was so happy to get to meet each of them in person and work with them for a bit!
This shoot was so special to me because it somewhat represented the next chapter for each girl. Ashlyn and Kaylee are quickly nearing the end of their senior years and thus, the end of their tenure as Mager Image Spokesmodels. It was so nice to see them again and it’s a little bittersweet knowing that it’s almost over. It was also an amazing learning experience for the new spokesmodels to learn from Kaylee and Ashlyn, as they talked and got to know each other and shared tips, advice, and tricks for everything from modeling/posing to how to get the most out of their spokesmodel experience. These girls all hold a very dear part of my heart, and I can’t wait to see where their journies end up!
