This is the age of the selfie. Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook all urge our teens to snap a selfie and post it, and so these years are flying by, “documented”, but without true lasting photos. So, it feels pretty awesome to take a beautiful teenager, dress her up, have her hair done, and show her just how special a photograph can be! A teen studio portrait is not only timeless, but also helps boost the confidence of teens during a time in their life when they are receiving so many messages about self-worth and appearance. Selfies, after all, are a dime a dozen, but a fine art portrait is a piece of beauty that can be passed down through generations.
Photographers such as Olga Topchii (which you can find at www.olgatopchii.com) often enjoy making fine art portraits to highlight the beauty of women at all stages of life, pregnancy is one of her focuses, which could serve as an inspiration for all teenagers that there is a wonderful life ahead of them. If they are struggling to balance all of these messages about self-worth and appearance. Having some fine art of themselves to treasure for decades to come should help. Olga does great work but I think if a teenager wants to feel pampered and highlighted for her current appearance she should come to me.
