one image at a time!
Self esteem can be developed or crushed in an instant, especially for the preteen (ages 10-12). I'm sure we all have stories from this age, and if you're a parent, I'm sure you struggle watching your preteen live through some stuff that you wish you could magically make better.
There's no easy solution to this. But I want to do what little I can with the tools and talents I have, to reach out and help make a positive impact wherever & whenever possible. Getting back to my roots (psychology, child development, art therapy and photography), I am starting a new photo project that I'd love for you to be a part of.
Introducing the "WHO I AM" Project.
I'm making it my personal mission to capture photos of those preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful (inside & out) and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high.
Want to Participate?
Who this is for:
I am looking for female or male models for this photography project, ages 10-12. I will ask the model (and SECRETLY, their parents and others close to them) a few in-depth questions, then combine the quotes and photographs to create one impactful piece of art for you all to enjoy together.
Why "Who I am?"
I want to capture the the authentic personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood. I want them to realize their true beauty (inside and out) so that they are confident in themselves. Imagine the impact a single beautiful photo can do for your tween's self-image, especially when combined with unexpected words shared from the people they love the most.

The session itself is complimentary (a $99 value). My goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love, that truly show your tween’s spirit and soul! Many people like to use these photos as birthday, Mothers Day, and “just because” gifts, as well as keepsakes for their kids. Portrait collections start at $299, and a la carte purchases can be made, as well.

If you're interested in a session like this for someone OTHER than a tween, or would rather pick the date/location of your choice instead, I am happy to schedule a custom WHO I AM session for you for $99 (available in Bend, OR only). TRAVEL sessions are also available with enough interest, though travel fees will apply.
