It’s almost back-to-school time, which means it is almost time for those wonderful school photos. Ok, so I said that with some sarcasm, but when my oldest graduated from elementary school this past year and they presented me with a card with all of her school photos from kindergarten through 5th grade, I have to admit I had a new appreciation for these so-so photos. Still, they don’t always show your child’s personality or remind you of who they were at that age. That’s why I love the idea of Tween and Pre-tween sessions!
When babies are first born we take photos of every milestone. Sometimes even monthly photos to show how much they change and grow from month to month and how their little personalities are changing. But then, things tend to take a break. Sure, there are vacation photos, selfies, sport events, etc. to capture moments, but seldom portrait sessions until they are seniors in high school. That time in between sometimes seems like a blur with busy schedules and trying to balance fun, responsibilities, etc. It’s such an exciting time watching them try new things and figure out who they want to be though! I want to capture who they are at these fun ages. That’s why I have started doing some Tween and Pre-tween sessions with my kids.
I’m sharing this one that captures my son at 8 1/2 years old perfectly. We did this spontaneously today for some artwork for his new room plans. Messy hair and all of his favorite things…so him! Love them!
