Sweet Sophia | Photographing Tweens
This 10 year old was such a natural in front of the camera. Sophia is known as a fashionista amongst her friends, so I knew we would be in for fun outfit changes and different looks for her during our session.
Heading into middle school is one of the biggest steps of adolescence, and in that sense this photo shoot came at a perfect time. I absolutely love working with tweens for so many reasons, but one of the biggest is getting to witness their confidence visually grow and change as they get their own shining moment in front of the camera. Nearly everyone feels nervous when they step in front of the lens; it is my job to help calm those nerves, and to guide the process of capturing their essence. The fact that tweens and teens are so early in the process of their own self discovery magnifies that aspect of our work together — and magnifies the reward as well.
