lauren – 13 years – Tween Portraits

Tween Portrait Sessions

Beautiful Lauren…and lucky me!  I got to have Lauren in the studio for not just one tween portrait session, but two!  And just look at how she has grown, from a cute and spunky 8 year old into a beautiful and sweet young woman of 13.  First of all, this portrait here just makes my heart all sorts of happy since it is snowing buckets outside.  I thought this very fitting!

Now…take a look back at then and now.  We didn’t even plan these similar portraits.  There were quite a few that lined up nicely to really show off how she has grown over the years. 

And would you just look at her hair in her most recent portraits?  The girl does that herself!  I’m lucky if I can get a ponytail straight, she’s incredible. I thought they had a professional do an updo for her portrait session.  Amazing…

Oh my!  Look at that smile, this girl is a natural in front of the camera.  These most recent portraits were done at just the right time because Lauren braces had just come off.

This last portrait was the one that caused her parents and I to stop at their most recent ordering appointment.  We realized that there was a similar image from her first session and I just happened to have it in an album at the studio.  So fun to see the changes and the similarities in these images!

How long has it been since your tween has had updated portraits?  It’s amazing how fast they grow and change.

One of the best parts of being a family photographer is watching these little ones grow up throughout the years.   It is amazing how much little ones change in just one year!  Maddy and Aaron first came to see me when Aaron was still in the womb!  Here are a few from Aaron’s newborn appointment.  So precious and tiny!

And here they are more recently.  Maddy is still the attentive, sweet big sister.  Aaron wasn’t too sure about the lady with the camera at first, but he warmed up and gave us that fabulous smile!  Capturing a successful sibling portrait isn’t always easy.  Typically, you’ve got one kid ready to go and looking adorable, and by the time you capture the second kiddo…kid #1 has gotten bored and wondered off.  HA!  But thankfully…Miss Maddy is a pro and she was ever so helpful as we captured Aaron for their sibling portraits.

While doing a family session, or a sibling session, I always capture some individual portraits of each child.  These tend to really bring out their uniqueness and personality.  I think as children grow older, it’s particularly important to photograph them.  So many things change when they hit that “tween” session.

Just look at these smiles!  I love it when we work hard and get past that uncertain stage where a child is nervous and unsure about me and my camera.  These type of genuine smiles make all of that work so worth it!
