Do you have a teenage daughter? One that is transforming in front of your eyes from an innocent child into a beautiful young lady with a world full of adventures ahead of her.
She may at times be grumpy, argumentative or even belligerent and she is no doubt finding her friends, her style, her opinions, her interests and her independence. She may even remind you of how you felt as a teenager and it is possible that you may be feeling nostalgic.
This is a magical and special time in her life and I would like to invite you to celebrate this unique and wonderful moment with a Quintessential Teenage Shoot (QTS) by capturing some beautiful portraits of your daughter as she is right now so that these precious moments can be celebrated for ever.
A QTS is great fun to do – from the initial consultation to planning and preparation, the shoot itself to images selection and then the excitement of receiving the final product – albums and wall installations.
Georgia decided to do a shoot to celebrate her 14th birthday. As part of her birthday celebrations her mother took her to Top Shop for a personalised shopping experience where she bought a variety of different outfits and accessories (I always advise my client to keep the labels on in case they want to return anything). On the day Georgia also brought along some of her favourite items of clothing too. I love seeing what a client brings for their shoot and it reminds me of being a kid again and going through the dressing up box!
We started by styling various outfits and accessories and then Georgia had her hair and makeup done my one of my fabulous makeup artists, Amanda Durkin, as her mother and I sat and chatted away.
Once Georgia was ready and looking absolutely stunning, her mother went home, and we went off to Holland Park to capture a variety of exquisite portraits in different locations incorporating nature in all its vibrant colour. We then returned to the studio to change Georgia’s look and outfits to get a different type of shot, slightly more edgy and grown up then wrapped up the shoot with some exquisite innocent and beautiful portraits. What a fabulous day we all had and Georgia and her parents were delighted with the portraits.
If you feel that this is an experience your daughter would enjoy then please contact me. You may even wish to do a Mother & Daughter shoot together.
