This session was inspired by the idea of "shattering" the perception of what the world has taught us a model "should" be. These girls not only shattered all of my expectations, they knocked this session out of the park!
Without fail, I hear story after story from teens and parents of teens who are struggling with their self-confidence. The root of it almost every single time? Bullies! In this day and age, teens are exposed to bullying everywhere - bullied by their peers for their physical appearance or behavior, or even seeing (and thus comparing) themselves to so-called "models" they see in magazines, storefronts or online, the teens that we see and interact with everyday are struggling with being accepted and feeling loved for who they are.
Since our high school senior portraits have changed the lives and helped with self-confidence for so many seniors, we felt the best way we could make an impact was to create The Fearless Spirit Project, a project designed to help boost self-esteem, self-worth and confidence. Through the power of photography, we're determined to prove to these teens & tweens just how uniquely beautiful they truly are.
Take a peek and the video, and if you like it, please give it a thumbs up! And if The Fearless Spirit Project is something you want to be a part of, but don't necessarily have a teen or tween who is able to participate, please share it on your social channels for others to see! You never know who's life you could change.
