Piedmont senior Kaitlyn Cornman, 17, was recently chosen as one of 35 girls, recognized internationally from the website www.seniorsignite.com as a model.
Cornman’s photographer Jen Basford of 3 Girls Photography in Edmond submitted her photos into the Seniors Ignite contest.
Basford said the contest is an elite contest and it is an honor for Cornman to have been recognized out of a group of more than several hundred girls nationwide and from Canada.
Basford said Seniors Ignite is an organization that educates and trains the next level of high school senior portrait photographers.
Seniors Ignite will host an international contest to be held in the spring in San Diego, Calif. where the photographer selects the best model for the event.
Basford said 3 Girls Photography entered Cornman into the contest and entered 43 other girls, and Cornman was chosen out of the 43 models who entered to attend the Seniors Ignite Models contest in San Diego in the spring. She will take photos March 3.
Basford said Cornman will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Paradise Point Resort in San Diego in March and gets to be photographed by some of the top senior photographers in the nation.
Basford said ultimately Cornman will get a modeling portfolio out of this contest and if she does well then she may even get a career out of it.
Cornman’s mom, Susan, said she is extremely proud of Kaitlyn.
“She deserves it because she is a good kid, and not just a pretty girl, but a good girl,” Susan Cornman said.”
