I remember being mesmerized by the idea of being captured looking beautiful, having your hair done and dressing up for the pictures, how exciting! I convinced my mom to take me to get my eyebrows done, my hair straightened and to find something to wear. I was so excited, I felt like I was going to matter, like I was an adult.
A few days later the pictures were ready for pick up! The envelop was heavy with 40 wallet size prints and 2 5x7 for my mom. We open the envelop and pull out the print oh so carefully to find that I hated everything about me. I saw the image and began to cry. As a 12 year, old, I wanted to look like the images I see on Vogue and I got the cruel reality of who I was at that age. It broke my self-confidence instead of building it.
A portrait session should be had every year of life not for vanity or documentation but to inspire the vision of who you will be tomorrow. Portraits that reflect your essence and accent your natural beauty are images that will empower your belief in yourself.
If you or your child can relate to this story, I invite you to call me for a consultation so we can speak about how to best represent you in your prints.
