This past spring I shared my embarrassing “gawky” photo story. This winter, I’m sharing it again, in hopes that I can make the Who I Am project even BIGGER and make a book out of it!
"Did I not exist as a tween?" I think to myself as I flip the plastic pages of my parents' family photo album. One of the few photos that exists of me as a preteen is a traditional school photo. You know the one, that head and shoulders pose with the cheesy grin. My teeth are slightly too big for my face and my hair isn't combed. Ah, sweet innocence.
Babies are so cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the darndest thing. But those tween ages are often forgotten. At ages 10-13 kids aren't children anymore but aren't quite teens.
I'm making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high.
Last springs project was a HUGE success, so we are doing it again this winter and are making a hard-bound book out the photos from this winter + last spring.
In comes the "Who I am." project
We are continuing the "Who I am" photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal is to make pre-teens look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are.
Who we're looking for
We are looking for female models for our photography project, ages 10-12. We will ask the model and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.
Why "Who I am"?
We want to capture the the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they hit Junior High. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tweens self-image.
