"Did I not exist as a tween?" I thought to myself as I flipped the plastic pages of my parents' family photo album. One of the few photos that exist of me as a preteen is a traditional school photo. You know the one – the head and shoulders pose with the cheesy grin. I am wearing glasses too big for my face and my hair is cut soooo short; I remember thinking that I looked like a boy!
Babies are so new, cute, and squishable. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and let’s face it; almost anything they do is adorable and picture perfect. But the ages between 10 and 12 are often forgotten.
The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high.I'm making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years.
In comes the "Who I Am" project
I am starting the "Who I am" photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal is to make pre-teens look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are.
I am looking for female 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.
I want to capture the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies. I want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they hit their middle school years. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tween’s self-image.
