Well, I have something just for you...

Desiree Ortman Photography is looking for members for the Class of 2022 Senior Rep Team!

So if you're new here, you might have some questions, and here are some quick answers to the most frequently asked questions...

What is the DOP senior rep team?

The DOP Senior Rep Team is a group of seniors who are selected to represent Desiree Ortman Photography leading up to and during their senior year. Reps help spread the word by sharing photos of their experiences on social media and referring friends.

What are the requirements to be a DOP Senior Rep?

You must currently be an up and coming senior for the 2022 school year. You must attend high school in Harford, Baltimore, Cecil, Anne Arundel or Howard Counties. You must be a positive role model in your school and in your community and you should also must be active online on social media, specifically Instagram. Upon being selected, you are required to sign an agreement committing to only work with and promote Desiree Ortman Photography through the entire school year, schedule your own senior session with DOP, and agree to participate in your assigned styled shoot.

Does it cost anything to be a DOP Senior Rep?

There is no fee required to submit an application; however, if you are selected, you are required to book your senior session with Desiree Ortman Photography during the 2021-2022 school year. Senior Collections currently start at $425 and DOP Senior Reps are eligible to receive discounts on their session based on the number of referrals they acquire.

Do I have to bring in referrals?

Absolutely not! The primary purpose of this program is to spread the word about Desiree Ortman Photography and spread a positive example both at your school and in your community. If you send referrals, you are rewarded, but they're not required.

What do you receive as a DOP Senior Rep?

As a DOP Senior Rep, you receive priority scheduling with Des. What does this mean exactly? Before Des opens up her shooting calendar for the 2021-2022 school year, reps have the opportunity to secure their date before anyone else. But the BEST part is as a DOP Senior Rep you will have the opportunity to participate in a styled editorial shoot (some reps have the opportunity to participate in more than one). Reps also participate in various community service opportunities, receive some DOP swag, and have the ability to earn a discount on your own senior session!

How many reps will be selected?

Des will select between 15-20 senior reps for the 2021-2022 school year!

How will I be notified if I am selected?

Reps will be announced on March 1st, 2021 on social media and also notified via email.

So what's it like being a Senior Rep??

Here are what some of Des' 2021 reps had to say...


“I’ve never been too photogenic, so I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone and decided to apply to be a senior rep! Desiree is so energetic and friendly that it truly brightens the experience. The other reps are so supportive, too! I am so glad I had this experience, and now I feel comfortable in my own skin”

She ensures that you feel your most confident and beautiful self when you shoot with her. She is so talented and so much fun, and it truly shows in the final product of her photos!”
