Recently flipped through a childhood album. Baby pictures where I'm cute and cuddly. Big smile and matching belly sitting in a basin. Holding a water hose soaking my new Sunday shoes. Birthday parties and unwrapping Christmas gifts.
But then there was this huge gap.
It was as if I never existed in middle school. Just an album page of school photos with awkward expressions, cowlicks and a rooster tail to document the next 3 to 4 years of my life. What I remember most about middle school is not being a member of the of the cool kids group. Plus I was constantly growing taller so my pants were never long enough. Always good for a joke at my expense.
Those middle years can be tough. Tweens don't feel like a kid but are not yet considered a teenager. Peer meanness is unchecked in social media. Add in hormones, body changes, acne and braces, then remember that their self-esteem is being built or broken at the same time.
Can you imagine what an amazing image could have done for you when you were that age?
Make a difference for your tween.
Replace those awkward school photos with ones where they look like a model. What kind of impact will it make on their self-esteem if they no longer see too fat, too skinny, too many freckles, hair that is too short or curly; but only see themselves as beautiful or handsome?
Whether your child is outgoing or shy, into sports or fashion, the session is catered toward them.
