Someone recently asked me what was my favorite thing about my job, and there are several things that I absolutely adore, being able to set my own schedule, seeing the results of what I’ve been able to build (through the grace of God). photographing families when I know the images have a special meaning and so many more. However, one of my absolute favorite things is taking pictures of young people, especially girls. Senior pictures and teen/tween shoots! We live in a society where everything is so visual. Our kids are inundated with what they should or shouldn’t be all the time. They have peers who are posting their “highlight reel” all the time and more often than not, our kids, our teens are not able to get a break from all of that. They wake up, look at their phone or iPad and see what their friends are wearing or (not wearing) and immediately they have a self-judgment. There is so much pressure on them, even at the earliest of years. So when I have the opportunity to show teenagers how truly beautiful they are (because they are amazingly beautiful), it makes my heart so happy. I just love that Sara-Anne Photography has evolved into a teen/tween photographer.
The process of one of these shoots (our Teen Shoots) is so much fun. Hair and makeup (that is age-appropriate) to start with. We have several awesome artists that we work with! Then we help to choose outfits for what looks best in front of the camera and even better when they come with a “plan” for their custom shoot! I love it, because my goal is to capture their personality, the specific stage in life, and hopefully glimpses of their heart! They often come into the studio just a bit nervous, not knowing what to expect, but by the end, we are rocking and rolling and they are comfortable. Then….the fun of seeing their pictures!
I will continue to do hold the teen/tween shoots for as long as I continue to shoot!
Why are these shoots so fun? Because what girl doesn’t like to get all dressed up, wear her favorite outfits, have her hair and makeup done by a professional stylist, and have some awesome pictures to show for it? We think that every girl needs to experience this at least once…why?
