The Best Way to Boost Your Teenager’s Confidence

Part of being a professional photographer is providing amazing images to my clients, but even more important is the confidence boost I want every single one of my teenagers to carry with them throughout high school. You don't have to wait for senior year to celebrate your teen!

Goal: Always Building Confidence For Teens

Part of being a professional photographer is providing amazing images to my clients, but even more important is the confidence boost I want every single one of my teenagers to carry with them throughout high school. Teen Years Magazine, the sister magazine to Senior Year Magazine published 5 images of my teenage clients! Even though I’ve been published many times over the years, it is always exciting to show off my clients in these magazines. So let’s get to it and announce the teens who have their images in Teen Years Magazine! Congratulations!!!

Sarah McDonnel

It doesn’t surprise me one bit that this image was chosen. By the end of the shoot she was feeling extra confident and looked gorgeous showing off this jacket from my Style Closet. Being selected for publication was icing on the cake for this young lady!

Marissa Storrs

Marissa is a talented young artist who was lucky enough to have her aunt set up a photo shoot during her visit to Phoenix. I love the variety we got and these are only two of the images from her session! The Style Closet came in handy and provided both of these cute outfits!

Note: I often hear moms say they want to wait for pictures until braces are removed. Heck, I was one of them! But braces are part of them for just a short time…don’t let that stop you from showing them how beautiful they are—braces or no braces! Be sure to check out more of Marissa’s fun teen photo shoot!

Arizona has some beautiful locations for senior pictures in the East Valley. Recently, I talked to Marissa, who graduated from Red Mountain High School in 2020. It's always great hearing from my grads! Marissa is just oozing with personality, so her family chose the ultimate senior portrait session which includes both day time and night time pictures. Such an epic session I thought it was time for an update!

From a photographer's point of view, San Tan Village in Gilbert, Arizona, is a modern, open-air space that’s full of opportunity. It's a venue that's quaintly decorated with charming lighting, eclectic chairs, textured walls, modern patterns, unique storefronts, and a pretty footprint that provides lots of symmetry and lines for framing the perfect shot.
