Teen Photo Shoot | Sycamore Senior and Teen Photographer

Did you know that there is an age group known as the “lost generation” to photographers? Most parents love to capture the toddler and newborn years, often clamoring to schedule lots of professional shoots, complete with poses and lots of cute outfits! Of course, school photos cover much of the next years, and then before you know it, it’s time to start planning senior sessions. But, what comes in between? Those years are often skipped. In the age of smart phones, maybe a snapshot here and there capture the growing-up years, but I believe teens should have professional photos long before their senior sessions. Of course, capturing the baby years is important, because they change so quickly, but equally important are the teen years, fraught with hidden, more subtle changes. They may not change as fast, but having that excited teen smile, celebrating a driver’s license, or a sweet sixteen birthday captured with portraits is just as important.

I recently had a giveaway for a BFF giveaway shoot, and these are the beautiful images that resulted! Right now, you can book a BFF shoot like this one for just $99! You receive 20 minutes of shoot time, and 5-7 beautifully edited images to keep. This would be perfect for a tween, teen, or even two seniors before they go off to college. Find all the details at my special events page!
