"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. Mom why didn't you comb my hair?!  

We all know babies are cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the craziest things....or at least my little guy does.  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 AWESOME and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high.

In comes the "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 make pre-teens look and feel amazing and be confident in who they are.

Who we're looking for

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

How to participate or nominate a friend:

Please e-mail us by Friday, March 10th if you are interested in having your child participate in this project, or if you would like to nominate a friend or family member of yours that you think would be perfect for this. Please nominate people you think would enjoy the boutique experience we provide. The in-studio session itself is complimentary, a $125 value. Our goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love and that truly show your daughter or son’s spirit and soul!  These photos would be great as birthday, Mothers Day, or “just because” gifts for their daughter/son. Our portrait collections start at $189.

After you email us at jpetrickphoto@gmail.com, we will send you specific details and you can decide if this project is perfect for your son or daughter.
