Most of the families I photograph have young children. When your babies are little you are constantly taking pictures, documenting their milestones and ever changing looks. The truth is children never stop growing, and maturing. You might think you have missed the perfect time to photograph your family, but the best time is NOW. Your "children" are never too old to exist in photographs.
Photo shoots with teenagers are just as fun and important as capturing them when they are little. The older your child gets, the harder it is to spend uninterrupted time with each other. They now have their own lives to live. Family time becomes more valuable. When your children have moved out and are all grown up you will love reminiscing on these days and remember how they looked at every stage in their life. When Sasha contacted me last year to photograph her growing children I was so excited. This shoot was even more precious as it included three generations! I absolutely love it when extended family members get involved.
There is probably many other things that your teenagers would rather be doing than having a photo shoot, but for one hour of your time you will get a lifetime of memories!
