There's Something So Touching About Tween Portrait Sessions
My daughter. The perfect window into a tween portrait session. Her young adulthood reveals itself in her movements, her expressions, and in the way she interacts with the camera. This particular photograph takes my breath away. It gives me, her mom, the opportunity to lovingly see the beautiful woman she is becoming.
Tween portraits are powerful not only because of the way tweens can grow up right in front of your eyes, but also because these kids have a full, dynamic personality that is still connected to their childhood as well.
When I am creating tween portraits, in one moment I am transfixed with the ease and grace of emerging young adulthood, and the next moment, I am delighting in the way they bring forth the innocence and the sheer magic of childhood. It is a stunning ebb and flow that reveals the essence and the inner workings of this in-between age.
This session was inspired by lace, sparkly soft eye shadow (that looks a little bit like unicorn dust), pink lip gloss, and a well loved white Siberian tiger kitten. It is a perfect fit for the ever-growing-ever-changing sparkly personality of this little soul.
When she was a toddler, this little one used to call me "Mama Kitty." Can you imagine the tenderness I felt when she told me she wanted to incorporate kitty whiskers?
It's a gift to see both sides of my sweet daughter. If you have a child that is growing up in front of your eyes, I would love to help you create something beautiful and lasting. We can capture your child in a way that touches your heart the ways these portraits touch mine. Reach out if you have questions.
