This is Mr. Z! During his photo shoot he was amazing! I loved photographing him. He is 11 years old and some of his favourite things are.
TV. Show: Alaskan Bush People
Food: Ice cream (who doesn't love ice cream right!)
Colour: Red or Blue
He describes himself as kind, funny and helpful. One thing he cannot live without is "Oxygen hahaha"
"Zach is our oldest kid. He's a very caring person, an all around wonderful person to be around. He likes being outside, spending time with his family, and he loves to learn. He has an amazing ability to talk and connect with all different types of ages of people. He can play with a toddler just as easily as he can sit down and visit with an 80 year old." - Mom
"Z cares so very much for other people's feelings. He tries never to do things that hurt anyone's feelings. Sometimes he, C and I are in the kitchen doing painting or crafts and he will see his Grandpa sitting in the living room by himself. He will go and sit down and say "So how was your day Grandpa?" He is just very thoughtful of others." - Grandma J
"Even though you don't make every shot I know you've given it 110% and you come and say to me "Sorry I missed my shot". When the opposition team makes a good shot you always acknowledge it be telling them "That was a good shot"." - Coach Wayne
"The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make the most of yourself." - Wallace Wattles
The inspiration behind The Who I Am Project!
Ask yourself what are the things you've always wanted someone to say to you, but no one ever has. Ask yourself how many portraits were taken of you when you were a tween (ages 10-13). I know for myself there are not very many. Quite often when I am visiting my Mom I dig out the old photo albums and look through all the pictures of when I was little. There are many photographs of me as a baby and a child but not too many of when my siblings and I when we were in our tweens or teenage years for sure. In came the idea for the Who I Am project. This is a project for tweens to celebrate who they are and what they enjoy doing currently. This project is paired with beautiful portraits and quotes from loved ones about the tween.
