What does it mean to be a part of the SLP VIP Team?

The SLP VIP crew is a program designed for High School teens of all ages living in central Illinois. Sweet Lemonade Photography is located in Mahomet, just west of Champaign & primarily serves teens in the Illinois communities of Champaign, Urbana, Bloomington, Decatur and surrounding areas. While the majority of VIPs are within 45 miles of Mahomet, past members have traveled several hours to participate.


If you do, then you’ve come to the right place. Destination teen sessions are my jam! SLP VIPs are incredibly talented teens who, in addition to balancing school and extracurricular activities, make volunteering a priority in their communities. SLP team includes teens that are outgoing, have an adventurous spirit, loves to travel, visually represents Sweet Lemonade Photography and are eager to share their experience with friends. These amazing teens attack life with a fierceness that can’t be squelched, own their unique style, and are always ready to make new memories.
