My newborn shoots and senior sessions often get a lot of attention – babies are universally CUTE. And seniors LOVE sharing their photos on social media, which capture their personalities at such an important time in their lives. But it’s not like there’s just *nothing* between being born and graduating from high school. So I want to share a type of session we haven’t promoted much at The Camera’s Eye – the tween session!
Carli’s mom Traci wanted something that captured her daughter’s personality better than the usual posed school photo. She wasn’t even sure if they had had Carli’s photos done professionally since preschool…probably a common story for many families! This particular age is a great choice for a photo session, because it gives a wonderful hint of the adult your child is growing into 🙂
In this case, capturing Carli’s personality meant including Nittany, the horse that Carli rides. Riding is a huge part of who Carli is right now, and we did this session at the same place where she rides, Meadow Pond Farm in Little Meadows, PA.
As a professional photographer, it’s my job to capture the personality of my subjects – and that includes animals! I think these photos show the relationship between Nitanny and Carli so well, including when they are being silly and affectionate with each other.
I’m loving doing tween sessions at The Camera’s Eye! This age is a time of big changes, so it’s a lot of fun to capture these young men and women in the moments that show their true passions and personality.
A big thank you to Carli (and Nittany) for such a fun outdoor tween session 🙂
