“Self-esteem is a set of attitudes and beliefs that a person brings with him or herself when facing the world. It includes beliefs as to whether he or she can expect success or failure, how much effort should be put forth, whether failure at a task will “hurt,” and whether he or she will become more capable as a result of different experiences. In psychological terms, self-esteem provides a mental set that prepares the person to respond according to expectations of success, acceptance, and personal strength.”
Do you remember when your tween was little and you photographed every moment? The baby and toddler years are traditionally the most photographed years of a person's life. As the middle school years approach, the pictures dwindle until they reach that important milestone- senior year.
The tween and teen years are such a transitional time in a girl's life. It's a time when they are so impressionable and discovering who they are and what they are capable of. Change happens quickly during these years and they go from being a girl that loves dolls to a young woman with strong feelings and emotions.
Look at the 2 images below of Alexis. These images were taken a short 3 years apart. From an 8th grader that loved to bury her nose in books to a young woman applying for the pre-med program at Princeton. Look at her confidence and how much it has grown in front of the camera. The change is remarkable during this time and it deserves to be captured.
"Tammy gave our daughter exactly what she needed during this transitional time in her life. Everything we wanted for her she took away from her session- feeling beautiful, special and confident. We have continued to have Tammy document Lily's growth over the last four years and now she is a senior! To see her growth and progress through the teen years has given us such joy and created a timeline of memories. We can't thank her enough for the opportunity to have all the beautiful images and keepsakes!"
The goal of our tween and teen sessions are to give our teens a time where they are free from expectations and schedules. This is their time where they can express who they are and what they love at this time in their life. These sessions are all about building confidence and providing an uplifting and positive experience for teens and tweens. We want them to walk away from their sessions feeling empowered, excited and special. Here are just a few peeks into what goes into our sessions:
