Tampa FL Model Call | Awkward Photos inspire “Who I Am” Project


“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. Ah, sweet innocence.

Babies are so cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and let’s face it, they just do the darnedest things. 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 beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves.

In comes the “Who I Am.” project
I am starting the “Who I am” photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of preteens. The main goal is to make preteens look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are. I want to capture their personality and capture what they love.

Who I’m looking for
I am looking for female models for my photography project, ages 10-12. I will ask the model and their parents some questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art. My goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love and that truly show your daughter’s spirit and soul!

Why “Who I Am”?
I want to capture the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies. I want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tween’s self-image.

How to participate or nominate a friend:
Please contact me asap 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 I’m looking to provide. Many people like to use these photos as birthday, Mother’s Day, and “just because” gifts for their daughter.


*These initial in-studio sessions are complimentary and includes $50 in product credit (a total $200 value).
Once I fill the dates and time available, Who I Am Sessions will be offered at my normal session rate.
