It's not easy being a Tween... really! Tweens aren't quite little kids, and they aren't quite teens. Age 10-12 can be tough and awkward as they try to make that transition from kid to teenager. I know it was a tough time for me, personally. Because of that, I have a special place in my heart for this age group. In March I photographed nine fantastic Tweens... all the slots I had scheduled for this project! There were so many more people interested in this project that I've open up session times in May.
If you hadn't heard, here's the story behind the Tween sessions:
I'm making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. It’s not easy being a Tween. The goal is to help tweens - both girls and boys - look and feel amazing, and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high and high school… something I lost at that age. Here’s my story…. The “why” I’m doing this project... It Ain't Easy Being a Tween
Who I’m looking for
I am looking for models for my photography project, ages 10-12. I will ask the model and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.
Why "Who I Am"?
I want to capture the the personality of these Tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young adults. I want them to realize how amazing they are so that they are confident in themselves before they hit junior high and high school. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your Tween’s self-image!
Sessions will only be offered the afternoons of Tuesday, May 9; Thursday, May 11; Tuesday May 16 and Thursday May 18, 2017 at this time. Please nominate people you think would enjoy the boutique experience I provide. The in-studio session itself is complimentary and includes an 8x10 print of the Tween’s favorite portrait, as well as their personalized video on the Jessica Guthrie Photography Facebook page (with the Tween's and parents' permission). My goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love and that truly show your child's spirit and soul! Many people like to use these photos as birthday, Mother’s Day, and “just because” gifts. My portrait collections start at $159.
