I had a message from a mom wanting to know if I could photograph her daughter, who was turning 13, as a fun gift for her. Of course! I think that is an AWESOME gift for girls who are brand new teenagers!
That teenager thought so too. :-)
In fact, she's only 13 and a day! A brand new teen-aby!
And can I just add a PSA here? I remember my oldest's 13th birthday. And it feels like it's been nothing but pedal to the medal since then. So my advice is to photograph them every chance you get...professionally, with your phone, snatch her selfies.....but collect those photos. Because they're literally on their way out the door, it feels like.
Can I even go so far to suggest that you do something THEY love, and take photos of that? I know not every teen loves having a photo shoot of their own, but find what they do love & do it with them. Because they're only "officially a teenager" for so long.
Great job to this girl's mom today! I know she had a blast, has some great memories, and now some fun snapshots to remember this special age. You can see a few of those here.
Happy 13th Birthday E!
