I’m pretty sure that I have previously expressed how much I love photographing teens… at least once or twice (please humor me and pretend this is the first time!) You would think the Selfie Generation would be immune to the impact of photography, no matter how great, just because of sheer exposure. However, I would say the opposite is true. I find that these kids value photography more than many other age groups. These teen girls love striking a pose and love even more seeing a gorgeous photo of themselves. The impact of a great portrait on a girl this age can go a long way. If I can help boost self -esteem even a little bit, I am a happy photographer, mom, and girl at heart. Our society loves to tell girls how to look and act, instead of boosting their confidence in who they already are!
This session was in honor of “J’s” 13th birthday and she brought out a whole crew of besties to celebrate with her. Considering it was January, the weather was beautiful beyond what we could have ever hoped for. The girls were so much fun with the giggles and playfulness. These sessions really are so much fun and I hope to do many more of them. Birthday sessions are a great way to celebrate a milestone, and how fun for your teen or preteen to be able to look back and remember her friends from that time in her life! Let me know if you’d like to schedule a birthday session, whether it’s a first birthday extravaganza or a 50th birthday bash, we can bring it to life through photos!
