Most teenagers will be at school Monday to Friday, which I reserve for mini teen sessions. It’s possible to book a slot for after school hours or over school term holidays.
If your photos are for a model portfolio, your teenager or child should keep the outfits simple with no logos or patterns. Model agencies would like simple images that show figure and personality.
I have photographed ballerinas for example and a celo artist. If your child/teen has a skill/hobby or craft then you can bring this to add into the session.
Some teenagers might like the idea of a pamper session before their photoshoot. A make-up and hair artist can be present to get them ready for a fun session. This can also be taken with friends. It works very well for a pre-prom photoshoot with friends.
