I Am projects
When I was 11, I started a new school with high hopes, no friends & one bully. I quickly forgot ANYONE loved me. So when my kids entered the tween years I started photographing their peers, making â€˜I Amâ€™ projects for kids 10-20 yr. old. It blows me away every time I see a tween look up & see they are important & that they have people in their corner!
I want to give kids a boost of confidence when they need it most.
An â€œI Amâ€ project is… a collection of portraits & personalized affirmations for your tween. I photograph each tween in my home studio while parents reach out to family, friends & teachers to privately tell me how your child lights up the room or give words of wisdom to help them through life’s rough patches. A final collection of between 17 and 20 strong, beautiful portraits is presented to your child with the unexpected addition of quotes from their favorite people.
Who is eligible? This project is for adolescents starting at 10 year old through to young adults and even parents and grandparents can be given an I Am project.
What happens after? After I compile the quotes and sort the images I create a presentation of your child’s “I Am” project. You and your child return to my house for the screening to see the images in a multimedia presentation (tissues included).
How to participate… If you want an I Am project for your child, I will be photographing projects through the Spring HolidayÂ and have space for only 5Â tweens. I will take bookings until this Friday, 18 September by midnight… Email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Print collections start at $450 (AUD). This would make a great birthday or graduation gift. But, really, this is a perfect ‘just because’ gift.
Spread the word…Â I am very new to Australia and I know very few people… if you could spread the word about my “I Am” projects I would be very grateful.
