The Vybz Tryb Team

What is the Vybz Tryb?

Visionary Youth Believers is a select group of teens and their parents coming together to promote a positive social environment for teens both online and inperson. I believe in using God's word to promote a positive body image and attitude in young adults. I provide empowering photo session for high school teens and help them share their story to make an impact on the world and in their community.

Please note: The VYBZ TRYB TEAM is my exclusive model rep program and is by INVITE ONLY. Please do not share this information as it is only available to Melonie Marie Model Reps.

A model rep for Melonie Marie Photography is essentially a representative who helps to promote my photography work to potential clients. Model reps act as a liaison between 30A Vybz and potential clients, helping to identify and recruit high school teens for photo shoots, or they may help to market my services to families and businesses. My model reps are passionate about promoting my work and in return will get coaching and mentorship in marketing and public relations for social media branding.

There is a $250 fee to join the team. This fee covers your first photo session with (2) outfits at one location. Plus you get your own phone APP* for sharing all your images.

At our tween, teen & senior photography studio, we know that word of mouth is one of the most powerful marketing tools. That's why we've created the vybz tryb team. We reward our team reps for helping us spread the word about our services.

the experience

My mission is to empower teens with leadership skills and self-worth. I believe in helping teens realize their full potential and true authenticity. By promoting a positive body image for both guys and gals, my goal is to cultivate their inner self so that their true authentic self can come through and flourish.


What's in it for you?

In additional to the fun photo shoots and cash earnings, you also get Branding Colabs!

Did you know statistics show that teens can generate $2000+ a month by collaborating with brands. Now more than ever, todays teens are self-confident entrepreneurs before they graduate high school.


But how do they get started?

It all starts with having a positive body image, a sense of self-worth...and the knowledge to connect and create brand deals on social media!

The BIG answer to WHY become a rep... the modeling events!

As a Photographer for over 20 years, I can tell you that the fun part of working with a photographer is all the chances to "act" or "dress" in a fashion or theme that you may not of ever thought of. From Victorian Age Steampunk of the 1850's to modern trends, we have ideas for everything in between.

Modeling opportunities for Parachute dresses are ONLY available during non-peak season.
