The ‘Who I am’ Project –tween photography experience

I find myself asking at what age our daughters go from saying I am so beautiful, to I do not want to look at myself. after 20 years in the photography industry I can tell you children are highly influenced in their tween years.

Over the last two years I’ve been working with woman in Australia and the USA on empowering their beliefs about who they, why and how to create self love and belief.  Most of them talk about their experiencing of moving into high school as negative. They lacked self belief and were bullied or followed negative influences to gain peer acceptance. "

 

I am leading gap studios  to make it our mission to show preteens that they have everything within them to create a wonderful, confident woman that embraces her dreams. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit high school.

In comes the “Who I am.” project

I am starting tahe “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 these tweens look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are.

Who I’m looking for

I am looking for girl models for this photography project (boys are welcome too – they just tend to be less interested in getting their photos taken), 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.

Why “Who I am”?

I aim 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 High school.

Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tween’s self-image.

I will capture your child’s personality – whether they are silly, shy or a little bit of both. I also want to capture what they LOVE. If they love to swim, you can bring their goggles and swimsuit, if they love basketball, bring a basketball and uniform. If they love music, have them bring their favored instrument and they can serenade me with their talents. The options are endless!
