I am still so in love with photographing the tween age group. Why? For one, I don't have to chase my subject and resort to silly games to get their attention. Kids 9-12 years old actually listen to instruction and are so easy to have a conversation with. I love asking about their favorite things from sports to celebrities. I love to ask about their relationships with friends and family. And they like to share and be heard.
Plus, they are not too old or too cool to dance in the middle of the street or lie in the wet grass. They are open to new things and having fun. They really are just kids after all.
Here is one of my favorites from a recent session with a 5th Grader. Her sense of style and confidence were amazing! More of this beauty to come….
