This Overland Park, KS Tween Session was one of the first in my Who I Am Project. I started the “Who I Am” photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal of this project is for pre-teens to realize their inner beauty and be confident in who they are. Having a tween of my own, I am realizing how FAST time is passing and how much she is changing from little girl to young lady.
Overland Park, KS Tween Session: Meet Lindsay
Lindsay is a sweet 11 year old that attends 6th grade in Overland Park. She likes the color blue, pizza, reading and tap dancing. On weekends she likes to “relax”. I love this photo of Lindsay relaxing on the couch because I feel like you can look into Lindsay’s eyes and see right into her sweet soul.
Lindsay describes herself as happy and that is exactly what I see in her in this photo of her coming off a big twirl. Her mom says, “Lindsay makes friends easily. When she goes to a summer camp, or new class, she always has a new friend by the end of the first day.”
I loved reading the questionnaires that Lindsay’s family, friends, and teacher filled out about her. So neat to learn about a person, then meet them and see those qualities in them. The absolute best part was seeing Lindsay read these quotes for the first time during the viewing of the Session Premiere slideshow. Psst: if you are considering doing one of these tween sessions for your daughter, the questionnaire part is a big secret until the Session Premiere!
Three good things to not live without: animals, books, imagination.
I can see why Lindsay’s grandmother loves her beautiful smile, as seen here in this photo. I saw lots of smiles and laughs during this Overland Park, KS Tween Session!
