I started venturing into the Pittsburgh tween photography market earlier this year. It’s an age that I love and I miss connecting with regularly. You see, BK (before kids) I taught middle school art and while it was so challenging, I really enjoyed so many of those kids. Tween sessions allow me to revisit that time I spent engaging with this age group.
I’ve mentioned that I think turning 10 is a big deal. Well, I’m so glad that I’m not the only one and I was so excited when another photographer mom contacted me to do some 10 year old pictures with her son. She told me he was more of a city boy so we agreed to meet down in the Strip District. I’ve been eyeing this location for some time now, just waiting for the perfect subject to shoot down there. Boston was that perfect subject!
This young man was so at ease in front of the camera. I hardly had to say anything to direct him and he loved sharing his posing ideas.
I loved how he would change from the tough guy faces to the smiles so easily. And this one with the shirt over the shoulder was his idea.
We also had to do a few with mom. There’s a special bond between a mom and her boy.
Now is the time to schedule your tween session with Jodi Walsh Photography. Do you have a special 10-14 yr old who could use an updated picture? Now that the kids are older, are your only pictures, school pictures? Schedule a special tween session to update those standard portraits with special images that capture this amazing young person growing up.
