These days, it’s all about girl power, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Girls have gone too long being told they are “too much”. Too loud, too quiet, too heavy, too slender, too smart, too flighty, too driven, too ambitious, too introverted, too loving, too much. I don’t believe any of these things are true. The girls I work with need to be told they are not too much…they are ENOUGH, just the way they are, and their personalities are perfect just the way they are. Of course, I believe in self improvement, and in working to be healthy, responsible, and kind. But working on yourself starts with self-acceptance. When we believe that who we are is perfect and wonderful, we actually will want to work on improving ourselves even more, because we are worth it!
Piper is one of my teen clients, and she is amazing. She is full of confidence, and has a rockin’ personal style. Piper has an incredible smile, a huge laugh, and a hilarious sense of humor. When I set up a session for my clients, I make sure we have the best playlist, great wardrobe choices, and an atmosphere where they can truly let loose and be themselves, free of judgement. That’s what my teen sessions are all about: fostering confidence, just like my senior sessions. You don’t have to be a senior to have a gorgeous photo session to remember the fun teen days. In fact, many seniors don’t have professional portraits done between elementary school and senior year, which is such a shame. You change and grow so much as a person during those formative years…let’s celebrate them!
