Professional Portrait Photographer for Teens
Let’s talk about the forgotten years. You know you have thousands of pictures of your firstborn as a young child, but what happens as they approach those awesome teenage years? Yes, I did say awesome? Perfect? No, but definitely worth remembering! I’m so thankful that we took Skylar out to celebrate turning 13. She hasn’t had professional portraits taken in years and her senior pictures are still a few years away.
Right now she is an 8th grader who just got braces. She’s a competitive swimmer with MAC. And did I mention she’s just an all around wonderful young lady! She definitely found her inner model! Here’s shes showing off this darling daisy top and sunglasses! Super cute!!
East Mesa Locations for Professional Portraits
If you know me at all, you know that “locations” aren’t really my thing. If everyone shoots there, why would I want to go there too? I prefer to use at least some out of the way pretty spots that most people don’t even think about for pictures. And yet they are stunning!!! This is just in one of the nearly neighborhoods in East Mesa. Nothing fancy, just our typical desert brush with gorgeous afternoon sunlight. But look at this stunning girl when you put it all together!
Style Closet Dress & Accessories
Skylar has an awesome sense of humor. She’s goofy and really enjoyed the fuss being made over her…once she got the hang of it! When she found out about our Style Closet, she was thrilled! She chose this darling dress which just happens to have a belt that can be used in multiple ways. So when Skylar first tried it on she came proudly dancing out of the bathroom with the scarf around her neck like a celebrity! It is something that I know her mom won’t soon forget. It is about the experience, enjoying this age, and making some time to remind your teenagers how much they are loved. Sometimes that gets lost in all the hustle of school, sports, friends, and teenage drama.
Yes, the hats are a must with all my teen and senior girls! This particular blue hat is always a favorite and looks gorgeous with Skylar’s beautiful long curls!
Such a cute session and great to do sessions with teens! I love the hats too!
Omg this is an awesome session!! Love her hair and hat – perfect combo!!
Thank you Jane!
Wow! Your teen portrait sessions are so beautiful and special!
Michelle has such an amazing talent! Hands down the best photographer that I have found! She brings out the best in the kids she photographs and that can be seen in the photos! Michelle sits down with the kids to take the time to know them! That reflects in the photos that are taken!
I can’t wait to take Skylar out again! We have so much fun together!
Adorable girl and beautiful portraits! Great job!
These are stunning!
WOW! She’s only in 8th grade? She’s gorgeous!
Right?!?! She is such a sweet girl too!
These are beautiful! Her smile and spirit shine as bright as the sun!!
