What is our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience?

Our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience is a journey of self love and self acceptance.  It’s a celebration of our teen and tween girls learning to accept who they are in a world where one’s beauty and uniqueness is all too often criticised.  

Our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience is so much more than taking pretty pictures.  It’s about empowerment and confidence. It’s about knowing that she is good enough just the way she is right now.

Our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience is about helping your daughter boost her confidence and feel more positive about her body image through a photography experience that will change the way she sees herself.

It’s about the transformation that takes place from the moment she walks in the door of our studio to when she walks back out that door at the end of her photo shoot. It’s a journey of self love and self acceptance!

I promise to show your daughter a version of herself that is not only beautiful but is empowered and confident!

I want to show her that she doesn’t need to change who she is so she can be like other girls. She just needs to be herself!

Who is a Teens and Tweens Photography Experience for?  It’s for all teen and tween girls who want to have the courage, confidence and self esteem to chase after their dreams and live a life they love without a lack of confidence holding them back from reaching their full potential.

I still remember that feeling of not good enough...

I am on a mission! 

I want to show every teen and tween girl that she doesn’t need to change who she is so she can be like other girls. She just needs to be herself!

Oh doesn’t that sound wonderful!  I only wish that I had been given that opportunity when I was young.

Unfortunately for me I was not one of the popular girls.  I always felt like I wasn’t good enough.  Terribly self critical I saw myself as too fat, not pretty enough and I honestly couldn’t see anything positive about the girl I was and for that reason I never had many friends.

I compared everything about myself to other girls and came to the conclusion that I just wasn’t good enough.  I grew up having no confidence at all.

Looking back on my teenage years I can still vividly remember those feelings and it can bring tears to my eyes all these years later.

To be honest, those insecurities are still with me today, though not as bad.  With age I believe we slowly learn to accept who we are and how we look, but it doesn’t mean we forget how we felt as a teenage girl growing up with all that uncertainty and self doubt.

Perhaps as you read my story, it may remind you a little of your own childhood.  It may also reflect what your daughter is experiencing…right now.

We can’t go back and change our past but we can show our precious girls that they are indeed beautiful and just as good as any of the girls they are comparing themselves to.

Image how your daughter’s life will be if she is given the opportunity to see herself in a positive way while she is still young.  Imagine her having the confidence to chase after her dreams and live a life full of happiness, love and freedom to do what she loves.

My goal with every tween and teen girl I photograph is for her to walk out of my studio feeling empowered and confident.  I want her to have photographs of herself as a constant reminder that she can be strong and confident to live her life and chase after her dreams without a lack of confidence stopping her from reaching her full potential.  I want her to know that she is perfect just the way she is right now!  I want her to be excited about life and learn to love and accept who she is.  

When I receive testimonials from clients like the ones below, it enforces that what I do is making a huge difference in our girls lives.

What Amy had to say about her experience - Zoe & Elly's Mum

“My two girls had the opportunity to have a photo shoot with Mandy and what an experience it was!
They couldn’t have loved it more!
From picking outfits, styling, hair and make up to the photo shoot. Mandy guided the whole process, made it age appropriate and a whole lot of fun.
The photos are absolutely stunning.
The girls started the year on a high and full of confidence. It’s an experience they will never forget.
Thank you Mandy 💕” 

What Jane had to say about her experience - Brooke's Mum

“Mandy has a way of making Brooke feel special and good about herself, not only through her brilliant photography, but also in her personal interaction.

What Brooke has learned from Mandy about the different techniques for posing in front of the camera has been invaluable and has completely lifted Brooke’s confidence.

Brooke said she just loves it and it makes her completely happy when she is doing it”

What Sonia had to say about her experience - Arabella's Mum

Mandy Lee, your vision for capturing the essence of young people is beautiful and a gift! When we first viewed your pictures of Arabella, we were amazed!


We know she is a pretty girl but you managed to capture her in a way that highlighted the beauty inside and out!

I hope that more young people get to experience what Arabella did in your caring and artistic hands! ‘WOW’

We are so excited to announce our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience.

We are looking for teens and tweens to go on a journey of self love and self acceptance.

Our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience will give your daughter one of the most amazing gifts she could ever receive – a feeling of knowing she is good enough just the way she is…right now.

It will change the way she sees herself.

What's included?

Style Consultation

We start with an in person consultation so I can get to get to know you a little before your photo shoot.  This also helps my clients feel a bit more comfortable on the day of their photo shoot.

I help you to choose the perfect outfits that will compliment your body shape and we talk about how you would like to be photographed.

At this time you will see the beautiful products that will be available for purchase after your photo shoot.

Studio Wardrobe

Each of our clients has their own personality and we believe your photography experience should reflect that.  We believe limiting to one outfit restricts our ability to capture the real you.

We will photograph you in as many outfits as we can fit into the allocated time for your photo shoot.

We have a large studio wardrobe that we are constantly updating. You are welcome to have a look through our wardrobe and use for your photo shoot or combine with your own outfits.

Professional Hair & Makeup

I love that we offer professional hair and makeup for every client so that you can look your best during your photo shoot.  

Knowing you look your best also helps you to feel more confident in front of the camera. 

As an added bonus, seen as you are looking your best  you may as well take advantage of that and go out for lunch or dinner after your photo shoot.  

You are also welcome to ask my makeup artist anything you would like to know about teen makeup application.

 

Fully Guided Photo Shoot

One of the biggest concerns we hear from our clients is that they don’t know how to pose for photos.

I can assure you that I will shape you and move your body down to the last finger.

I have studied this for years and I’ve been taught personally by who I believe to be the best women’s portrait photographer in the world.

You do not need to know how to do this.  I will guide you through the entire process.

Portrait Reveal

This is when you come back to our studio and view your photographs for the very first time.

It’s my job to take the most beautiful photographs your daughter has ever seen of herself that will make you both go WOW!  We want to own them all.

But if you don’t like them, you don’t have to buy them.  You only buy the photographs that you love. 

All of our photographs are printed and come with the matching digital file.

We offer an interest free payment plan through PayRight, if required, so you can purchase all the photographs that you love.

An Experience Like No Other

Our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience is like no other.

We want to ensure that your daughter walks out of our studio feeling more confident and positive about her self image and we have spent countless hours perfecting what we do.

This experience is one your daughter will remember and treasure as part of her life story.

How does our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience work?

Register your interest…

If you are interested to see how our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience could impact your daughter please fill out the form below and I will be in touch to start the process.

It starts with a phone call…

It all starts with a phone call. We chat about your daughter, your hopes and dreams for her and what you hope to achieve by having your daughter experience a Teens and Tweens Photography Experience with Mandy Lee Photography.   

It’s also a time that I can get to know you a little and we can decide if we are good fit to work together to give your daughter an experience she will never forget.

If we decide that I am the photographer for you and your daughter, then we will book you in for a style consultation. 

The style consultation… 

This is a time when I get to know you and your daughter a little more and we start to design your daughter’s Teens and Tweens Photography Experience.  

We will have a look at some of the photographs I have taken and see what shots resonate with you both.

We get your daughter to bring some of her favourite outfits so we can have a look at them.

We also have a studio wardrobe for her to choose from to wear during her photo shoot and/or combine them with any of her own outfits. 

I will offer my expertise on which outfits will work better and photograph well.

By the time you leave we will know exactly what your daughter will be wearing during her photo shoot.

It is at this time that you will be shown our products and we will answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Shoot day has arrived…

The day of your Teens and Tweens Photography Experience has arrived!

I’m sure your daughter is feeling excited and nervous all at the same time and maybe you are too.  That is completely normal but those nerves won’t last long for either of you.

On arrival you will be greeted at the door.  Your outfits will be taken from you and hung up on our clothing rack.  

Then the fun begins. 

You daughter will be directed to our makeup chair.

We offer professional hair and makeup for every client so that you can look your best during your photo shoot.  

Knowing you look your best also helps you to feel more comfortable and confident in front of my camera. 

You are also welcome to ask my makeup artist anything you would like to know about teen makeup application.

Hair and makeup will be styled relevant to her age.

The photo shoot…

Upon finishing in the makeup chair we are on to the photo shoot.  This is the fun part.

I will have drawn up a shot list with each outfit, pose and backdrop we will be using.

I will direct and guide your daughter into age appropriate poses and help her with her expression for every shot I take of her.

I am patient and I will help her to feel comfortable in front of my camera, no matter what it takes.

During the photo shoot there will be a time when you will see your daughter’s confidence grow.  It’s amazing to watch! 

She will go from being the nervous and shy girl that walked into my studio to looking like she’s been in front of the camera hundreds of time before.  She will look like she’s a fashion model doing a photo shoot for the cover of a magazine.  

You will be so proud of her.

Your daughter will more than likely talk about how much fun she had during her Teens and Tweens Photography Experience for a long time to come.

It truly is an amazing experience.

The portrait reveal appointment…

7-10 days later you will come back to our studio for your portrait reveal appointment.

Your photographs will be ready waiting for you to view and choose your favourites that you would like to purchase.

This is such an exciting time when you get to see your beautiful photographs for the first time.  

We get so many different reactions to this.

We hear lots of oohs and ahhs and many gasps of wonderment.

We have tissues on hand because this can be quite emotional for both our teens, tweens and their parents.

Gallery Events, Blog Posts & Advertising…

We periodically host gallery events where we showcase some of our tweens and teens photographs.

When this occurs you may receive an invitation to one of these events. The invitation would be for you, your family and friends to enjoy and celebrate the amazing, beautiful girls who chose self love and self acceptance over criticism and self doubt.

Your daughter may be featured in our blog posts and our advertising.  We find this really helps to boost confidence and reinforce the girls experience with us.

To register your interest in our Teens and Tweens Photography Experience please fill out the form below and I will be in touch to answer any questions you may have.

Conditions apply.  A model release form is required to be signed prior to your photo shoot.  You may be required to provide a testimonial about your experience being photographed by Mandy Lee Photography. Before and after makeover photos will be taken.  Your portrait may be showcased at our events.
