Why Pre-Teens and Early Teens Need a Photosession.
We photograph our cute little 10 and under girls a ton. Because they're kidlike and adorable. And we photograph our older teens who are taking on the adult beauty and sexiness. So what's with the 11-14 year old gals?! There's often a noticeable gap in photography. Girls even tend to hide from the camera at this age. It's that limbo land between child and woman. We know they're in limbo, they know they're changing. And it shows by ignoring these years in the photo albums lol. No proof so it didn't happen right?!
Parents have to live with this suddenly volatile preteen daughter. It’s a shock I bet! She was so sweet last year and now she's throwing bazerko fits. Good chance she's moody, a drama mama, a tad self-centered, eye rolling, cares about friends and not you, she's back-talking and condescending. Now I'm sure she's also matures, intriguing, unique, funny and all of those wonderful things too. Pre-teens are the amazing combo of toddler and teen mixed together.
Tween’s have developing bodies that are flooded by hormones. Her brain is literally rewiring itself! She needs to discover herself and her place in the world. She's spending all of her energy growing up, gaining independence, and becoming the woman version of herself. She has to figure out if she's beautiful according to societal standards. Is she an athlete, an artist, a musician, goth, geek, basic, preppy girl? It's so confusing! She still needs 10 hours of sleep but is getting like 8 or less! And she might not like to admit how much she still needs and wants her parents to be near and close.
Well, I feel that this group of gals needs some attention. With photography we can show them what we see. They're evolving beauty, they're personality, quirkiness, shyness, whatever neat qualities they have that are lovely. That maybe they don't see. These are rough years. I think that together we can put together a day that's unique just like her. Helps you bond with the young lady in your life. And gives her photographs that depict her correctly at this stage in her life story. She gets to wear her favorite clothes instead of clothes picked for family photos. I have a make up artist available if you want that option. And maybe you get your hair done and do some fun stuff together prior to her shoot. Then, we photograph your dramatic amazing beauty and help her see all that is fantastically gorgeous and neat about herself. Because you know she's amazing. I know she's amazing. But she might not. I'd love to work with these awesome tweens and bust out a great photo session together.
Here's to celebrating all that is beautiful in our kids. From the moody to the amazing. Let's document it.
In love and service, I'm your fan.
