Photo session with a teenager

November 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I love working with teens. I like their energy, creative ideas and hearing what they have to say. I recently had the opportunity to work with Carolyn who's 14. We met at a local park after she got out of school. With the late fall sun we hit perfect lighting around 4:00 but it was windy, I mean the wind was whipping at times. Carolyn has long pretty blond hair so we decided to play with the wind. I like that teens are open to fun ideas. So we played with using the wind and tossing her hair around. I LOVE this shot of her

There were some periods when the wind died down and we got this really pretty shot. I like her relaxed yet serious kind of look. She has a very old soul kind of feel to her.

As the light was going down fast we headed over to the pond to get a few last shots. The lighting here changed dramatically and this was one of the last images that I got. She looks so pretty in this lighting with the fall colors behind her.

I had a lot of fun working with Carolyn. She shared an interest in photography and we chatted about cameras a lot. I explained to her a lot of what I was doing and why so that it might help her to pick up some ideas for her own work. I think when working with teens it's important to let them participate with ideas. They need that space to express themselves.
