024-Cavanough-20-10in

 The pre-teen years where busy schedules and growth spurts go hand it hand. The influence of friends is becoming more important and there is a growing sense of independence, however there is still times when hugs, kisses and praise from Mum or Dad is all that they want.

One of the best stages of life! Everything seems to be going okay, they are at peace with the world and themselves. A good time to be doing environmental portraits at home or the farm, including their hobbies and interests and perhaps even their best mate. At this stage again, we will look at both sibling and family portraits as well as a range of individual studies which will add to the rich history of images that we have produced up to now.

The last session of their childhood portraits, Our twelve year old is about to become a teenager! A gorgeous, happy age where self image is important. By now they are no stranger to being photographed, and it is nice to try and involve them in the planning process for the shoot. What do they want to do, how do they see themselves being photographed.
It is still relatively easy to guide there ideas, but they really appreciate the fact that most of what we do is seated in the plans that they were involved in making. It is just as important to included them in the decision making process after the images have been shot, so that they have a say in what ends up going on the wall - after all, it is their home too, and they will be bringing their friends into the house. The last thing we want to do is to put something on the wall that they will be embarrassed by.
