Tween Sessions & The “Who I Am” Project

In my studio, I see many sweet little ones, many high school seniors, many entrepreneurs – all coming in for portraits to tell the story of these important times of life. Celebrate achievements, get those “have to” images, and capture times we typically think of capturing.

What I’m finding, in my years as a pro photographer, is there’s this big age range that gets overlooked – that Tween age that starts around 9 until hitting the official 1-3…and teenagerhood. This time of life is also a huge transition, as I’m sure we can all remember. It can be confusing, and self-confidence and self-image can get shaky.

For me, personally, this was a time of braces, permed hair, shoulder pads (ugh) and huge pink glasses that allowed me to see the chalkboard. I felt like the opposite of beautiful. I was lacking in confidence and in self-belief. Looking back at those images of me now, I see so much there – so much beauty, so much ability. I wish I could go back and give Tween Me a hug and show her how great she really was and let her know that everything was going to be a-okay and to not worry so much.  


With this project and with these sessions, I’m making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high or middle school.


In comes the “Who I am.” project and Tween sessions

We are starting the “Who I am” photography project in tandem with Tween sessions to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal is to make pre-teens look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are.


Who we’re looking for

As I begin these sessions, I am looking for female models for our photography project, ages 10-12. We will ask the model and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.


Why “Who I am”?

We want to capture the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they hit Junior High. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tweens self-image.


How to participate or nominate a friend:

Please e-mail us or fill out the form below by Friday, January 29th if you are interested in having your child participate in this project, or if you would like to nominate a friend or family member of yours that you think would be perfect for this. During this kick-off period, please nominate people you think would enjoy the boutique experience I provide. During this model-search kick-off, the in-studio session itself is complimentary and includes $50 in product credit (a total $200 value). Our goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love and that truly show your daughter’s spirit and soul!  Many people like to use these photos as birthday, Mothers Day, Valentine’s Day and “just because” gifts for their daughter. Our Tween portrait collections start at $500.


After you email us or fill out the form below, we will send you specific details and you can decide if this project is perfect for your daughter.
