Who I Am Project

It's My Personal Mission to Capture the Lost Preteen Years.

“Did I not exist as a tween?” I think to myself as I flip the plastic pages of my parents’ family photo album. One of the few photos that exists of me as a preteen is a traditional school photo. You know the one, that head and shoulders pose with the cheesy grin. My teeth are slightly too big for my face and my hair isn’t combed. Ah, sweet innocence.

Babies are so cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the darndest things. But those tween ages are often forgotten. At ages 10-12, kids aren’t children anymore but aren’t quite teens.

I’m making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high.

Gawky Photo Inspires Who I Am Project

We are starting the “Who I am” photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre-teens. The main goal is to help pre-teen girlss look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are. And, we want young men to feel confident in who they’re becoming. ***NEW this year, we’re adding boys to the project.

Who we’re looking for

We are looking for both male and female participants for our photography project, ages 10-12. We will ask the participant and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.

Why "Who I Am?"

We want to capture the the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies and young men. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they hit Junior High. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tweens self-image.
