Teen portraits with deeper meaning are not just pictures OF her. I want to take pictures ABOUT her and FOR both of you. I want her to walk away feeling seen and celebrated.
Teen portraits at the beach
I’ve been revisiting some of my favorite beach photoshoots and then realized that I haven’t posted a bunch. I’m kicking it off with Eleanor. We took these photos in Nantucket (of course I’ll travel to a beach for you!).
How to get rid of the nerves
She’s a teen, not yet a senior and had never had professional photos taken. So, yes, she was a little unsure of what a photoshoot entailed. Being at the beach is one of the best locations to feel more at ease. We also made it super simple, meaning no hair and makeup, 2 outfits and no assistant. Her mom stood in for my assistant (and had a blast watching the experience that was unraveling before her eyes).
Getting “honest” photos
Teen portraits with deeper meaning entails, NO cheesy smile, NO duck lips, NO kooky angles, “just” your teen. Teen portraits of her completely at ease and happy! You can go here to see just how freeing it is to be on the beach for a photoshoot.
What to do next?
When was the last time you’ve had “honest” photographs OF her, ABOUT her, FOR both of you?
This is my specialty…giving a teen the space to be exactly who she is, capturing her personality.
