Senior Model Program

Now recruiting for 2025 High School Seniors in Northwest Arkansas, join the model program and be one of 10 Seniors to be the stars of Hannah Golden Photographs.


A great way to document your Senior year and prepare for life after high school, you get a custom senior photography session and the opportunity to participate in themed group sessions throughout the year such as for holidays, spring florals, graduation, and more.

Why be a Senior Model? 

This program is about building confidence, happiness, and life skills. 

  • Meet other local high school seniors who you may not have met otherwise.

  • Prepare for graduation as a community with monthly "life lessons" from local leaders.

  • Receive invitations to attend quarterly group events such as volunteer hours, ice cream socials, celebration dinners, and more.

  • Have a 1:10 chance to win a $1000 scholarship for vocational school or college. 

Who Should Apply?

  • Anyone who wants to document their Senior year, whether you love being in front of the camera or you need the confidence boost.

  • Hannah Golden Photographs is committed to diversity and to equal opportunity. I do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, height, weight, or physical or mental ability.

  • You want to prepare yourself for your future in ways you may not have considered before.

  • You are willing to sign (with a parent or guardian) a photo & video release.

  • You are willing to commit 2-5 hours a month towards this program (photo sessions, trainings, events, etc.) with dates given in advance. School always comes first and I know with jobs and extracurriculars, life can get busy, so you can commit to attending every session that works with your schedule.


What are the application requirements?


Parent/Guardian & Senior Virtual Information Call
