Is your daughter at the stage in her life where she is either not talking to you AT ALL or texting you every other minute to help her troubleshoot some small detail? Alright, full disclosure, I am the mother of a teen myself and know firsthand what kind of weird animal I am talking about here. Or as friend of mine once said, you never know what person is going to come downstairs today, the same as yesterday or a totally different one.
Looking for a new personal and professional project to immerse myself in for 2015 I developed the idea of the “my daughter myself” portrait. It is aimed at moms and their teenage daughters. Through photography I would like to illustrate what the tender relationship is about.
My goal is to give both sides of the relationship a voice. One part of the portrait will be set up according to the daughters ideas and the second part according to the moms preference.
Both of the subjects should really want to participate.
Who should apply:
All Moms who believe that this is the time to take some classic portraits of themselves and their teenage daughters (we can discuss taking pictures with multiple children during the same session). The kids should be from tweens to young adults.
You and your daughter have to commit to a photography session of approximately 2 hours. We will take two portraits to illustrate your relationship. One set up or location is chosen by the daughter, the other by the mother. Ideally they won’t be too far away from each other. I will also offer some shots in a studio setting on a day TBA.
- $225 for the first three people to sign up
- $350 and up on a sliding scale for everyone else. You will be given at least two professional files and/or prints, additional prints upon request.
