"I'm anticipating the time When it'll be my turn,
It could be fun to try
I think that I'll save the world As a fun afternoon activity"brooke fraser - saving the world"My" highschool has a really great "internship week" each year. Each highschool student needs to submit a request to a business/career-option they would be interested in pursuing, and then instead of going to school that week, they go to "work" and intern!This year I had (from L to R) Katie, Julia, Emily and Natalie.
We talked a good deal about branding, shoot preparation and "setting yourself apart."One day we brainstormed brands.They each picked words that described themselves.The cut out pictures and created "brand boards" to see what they "looked" like.Another day we worked on logos.Another day they brainstormed for a shoot to do together.The final day they came and got all ready for their little "planned" shoot.It was pretty adorable ;)Mostly their conversations about "girl" things that I loved to eavesdrop on.I love highschool girls haha
Let me introduce them a little more specifically.Emily is "artsy, dorky, young."Probably the most experienced photographically-speaking of all the interns.I loved the new look we came up for her!
This is Natalie.She came up with "joyful, colorful, spunky."I think Natalie is the most driven and most "set and achieve goal"-oriented of all the interns.
Katie is the fire-cracker.And "spontaneous, funky, old-soul."She's for sure the most excited and passionate in the group!
A little spontaneous funk... ... and a little old soul ;)Oh Julia, Julia. ;)Julia actually isn't as interested in photography as she is exploring options.I think she should going into fashion styling.For her age, I think she has incredible taste.I loved her "brand" the best.
OhHEY. It's me!
After the fun little shoot with the girls, we had two bf-gf couples to practice some more on!
It was a packed week, and I went to bed early + tired every night! But it was so worth it. Can't wait to see where these ladies go!You all made me laugh, made me think and made me laugh some more.I had a blast!
Ps. Trying to decide if I should do internships again this spring/summer.Thoughts?
