Milestone Birthday - Tween Portrait Shoot - Buffalo Portrait Photographer

Tween girl portrait shoot by Buffalo Portrait Photographer Natasha Staszak Photography

As our children grow, there are a few moments where photographing them is particularly special…

Newborn, 6-9 months (sitters), 3-5 years and High School Seniors. Now, I’m not sure if you noticed something as I listed those special moments, so I’ll just go ahead and point it out. Do you notice that there is a large gap between the 3-5 years and the Senior portraits? That is exactly why I believe a Tween shoot is so important! Tween is an awesome age because they are on the cusp of something new - they are not quite children, not quite teens. A Tween portrait is the perfect time to see a little bit of both worlds in your child - the bridge where you can still see your baby, but also begin to see the young woman she is growing into. This is exactly what I mean by gone with the wind - the child is leaving so quickly and it is the optimum time to capture her before she is gone.

A little bit of child, a little bit of teen - tween portraits.

What is fantastic about a Tween portrait session is that you can see a little bit of child in some photos and a little bit of teen in others.

“I booked a photo shoot with Natasha for my daughters 13th birthday. Natasha really went out of her way to make it a special day, [with] hair and makeup professionally done. It felt like the perfect birthday gift for a teenager, a fantastic celebration of this milestone in her life and awesome memory, as Natasha's photos from the day are just beautiful.” Ms. E

for me, The aim of a tween portrait session is the same as any other portrait session - that is to take gorgeous photos that show a little bit of soul - the eyes have it.
