It's My Personal Mission to Capture the Lost Preteen Years.
"Did I not exist as a tween?" I think to myself as I flip the plastic pages of my parents' family photo album. One of the few photos that exists of me as a preteen is a traditional school photo. You know the one, that head and shoulders pose with the cheesy grin. My teeth are slightly too big for my face and my hair isn't combed. Ah, sweet innocence.
Babies are so cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the cutest things. But those tween ages are often forgotten. At ages 10-14, kids aren't children anymore but aren't quite teens.
I'm making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves before those difficult teen years.
GAWKY PHOTO INSPIRES ‘WHO I AM’ PROJECT
The "Who I am" project is designed to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal is to help pre-teens feel beautiful and be confident in who they are. And, we also want young men to feel confident in who they’re becoming.
WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for both girls and boys to participate in our photography project, roughly ages 10-12. We will ask the participant and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.
WHY "WHO I AM"?
We want to capture the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies and young men. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they hit the teen years. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tweens self-image.
Sessions take place at our lovely rural studio just outside of Bury St Edmunds.
The in-studio session fee (normally £125) has been waived, and as a special thank you, we're also including £50 print credit to spend on your favourite photographs.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
