Senior Model Team | Destination Session in Hastings, MN

It was a beautiful summer evening for an adventure with my five Class of 2016 Monda Goette Photography Senior Model Program team members! Part of my senior model program Level 2 was to include a "destination session" somewhere. I had many different ideas - ranging from a day road trip to the Duluth area to the outskirts of southern Minnesota. There were so many great locations to choose from! Ultimately, I made the decision to go to the Little Log House property in Hastings, MN.  A private vintage village with fully restored old buildings and replications of many historic sites. 

Check out our video with some highlights from this mini-road trip with my 2016 senior model team! The gals named our day "Girl's Day and Hunter!"

The clothing and accessories the ladies wore were graciously provided by my friends at ApricotLane Boutique in Mendota Heights. (Thank you one million times, Kati and Kristine for your generosity!) Awesome location for ladies trends and fashions! The ladies looked like superstars! Hunter had trendy picks from Kohl's and was just as stylin'! Make up artistry was done by the talented Miss Petra.

2016 Senior Model Team looking fantastic!

With this being my first "go" at a newly revamped year-round model program for high school seniors - I wanted this team to feel  like royalty on this destination adventure to provide an epic full senior experience! A Mercedes Sprinter van/bus transported us to and from our destination to our hotel suite where the team got ready. (The team even managed to get "selfies" with Adam, our Sprinter driver!) 

There were goodie bags for the team, a team building game, and of course plenty of fun images from the location site, and some pizza from Old World! 

Getting ready in our hotel suite!

I am glad I am able to finally share them with all of you! What an awesome team I have this year! This year's team has helped to pave the way for senior model programs to come! 

Ebonie, Emma, Hunter, Kaitlin and Maddie - you are all fantastic and I can't tell you how much fun I had doing this destination shoot with you!
