As my children get older I appreciate more and more just how incredible every stage of development is. Not only do children and teens continue to grow and look different long after they have left the toddler years but it’s within these later years of childhood that their sense of who they are emerges. When our children are little we often believe that the pace of our lives will slow down as they get older but as our lives expand with their growing circles of friends and activities, time slips away at an even faster pace. Sometimes we are so busy in our daily lives that we don’t have the time to stop and commemorate the incredible children that we love beyond measure. Time flies quickly when you are a parent and all too soon your children will have created their own path for themselves beyond your home.
Sessions for children and teens are a chance to record forever their changing personality, unique expressions, and who they are at this point in their lives. When I photograph children and teens I strive to connect with them to elicit emotion and their own unique personality and characteristics. Every youth I photograph is different and I am happy to style their sessions according to their own personality and interests and to create the “look” you’d like for their session.
As our children grow older it can often be challenging to capture just who they are. These years can be fraught with feelings of nervousness, self-consciousness, and shyness. My years of experience in working with children and teens of all ages allows me to help them move past any feelings of self-consciousness or shyness because it's important to me that my young clients not only have beautiful photographs of themselves that they are proud of but also that the session experience is enjoyable for them.
I understand that as children grow life becomes even busier with school, extracurricular activities, and even student jobs making it challenging to make time and prepare for a photo session. I am as passionate about my work behind the camera as I am about making the entire experience easy, fun, and stress-free. My sessions are well organized to make the best use of the time we have together. My detailed preparation in the lead up to your session means that everyone is prepared and on the same page long before your child comes into my studio.
