Thank you for your interest in our “Who I am” project - our 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.
These portraits will be taken in our portrait studio in Pakenham, just outside of Bury St Edmunds. We will capture your child's personality - whether they are silly, shy or a little bit of both. We also want to capture what they LOVE. If they love to swim, you can bring their goggles and swimsuit, if they love football, bring a football and uniform. If they love art, let's include some artwork and maybe splatter some paint on a white background! We can really be creative with this.
Words + Imagery
Beautiful artwork mixed with words can be so powerful. Before your child's session, we will ask you and a spouse/partner questions about your child. We will also see if they have a best friend and any coaches that might also be willing to answer a few questions. We will mix words and text with a final image.
Sh.......it's a secret
We want the interviews to be a secret to your preteen, so that we can reveal all the positive things you and others have said about them when we reveal the photographs. They should have no idea this is going to happen. We will interview them with a few questions, so they will think any words will just be things they said themselves. We feel this can have a really positive impact on them. Think about it - if someone surprised you with 15-20 positive quotes about you, how would you feel? I bet it would be AMAZING!
After the project.
We plan on using these images to start spreading the project even further in our community, so we can make a positive impact on as many tweens as possible! We will use your images combined with your quotes to create one impactful piece of art to use in our marketing. Because of this, we do require that a model release is signed, so we have permission to use these photos on our website (and tag you in them on facebook!)
This "Who I am" photo session, normally £125, will be complimentary, and our gift to you for being part of the project you will receive a £50 credit toward anything you would like to order. About 1-2 weeks after the session we'll have you come into the studio to pick the images you like and use your product credit.
Many people like to use these photos as birthday, Mothersday, and “just because” gifts for their daughter. Our portrait collections start at £195, and portrait albums start at £295. We are also creating an exclusive album specific to this project that includes beautiful imagery on every page mixed with quotes and words from our interviews. We have never offered this product before, and are excited to see what people think about it, and how your preteen feels when they see the compliments others have given them.
When will this happen?
These sessions will take place on weekdays and selected weekends between 11:00 and 17:30. Each session will last 60 minutes. We have set the times to allow after school photos, as well as offer parents the option to get their child out of school a little bit early if their child is in after school activities.
Is there a day in that range that would work best for you?
What if I like more than one photo?
In order to take advantage of the £50 product credit, any order must be placed with payment at the presentation which we will schedule together 1-2 weeks after the session at our studio. This is when you will also choose what you want to order with your £50 portrait credit. This is also the time your tween will get to see ALL of the photos, set to music, with all of the amazing quotes presented in the slideshow.
We can’t wait to hear back from you on a great day that works for you, and learn more about your child!
