Anyone that follows Jenny Hooks Photography knows that it is usually young kiddos, babies, and expectant mamas that I’ve got in front of my lens most of the time. Every once in a while I get to shoot tweens and teenagers, and it is such a joy. This shoot was the first of five from the 2013 I Heart Faces Conference at Cherry Valley Lodge here in Columbus from October 4-6. I would love to do tween and senior photography more often!
This beautiful gal got a photo shoot with me for her fifteenth birthday, and it was SUCH a fun diversion from photographing babies and toddlers. Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE my babies and toddlers, but photographing a teenager is fun on an entirely different plane; you can converse with them, direct them, laugh with them. Miss M brought her best friend and family, and everyone at some point participated in the shoot. The star of the show was definitely Miss M; she was really a natural in front of the camera and brought new meaning to the concept of “smiling with the eyes”. Here are my favorites from the evening. You’d never know it was cloudy and cool, would you? I hope you love them!
This shoot was so, so much fun for me to do. It was my first senior session, and though I positively love photographing babies and small children, it is a complete game-changer when your subject is old enough to follow your direction and interact with you creatively! Miss K and I had such a lovely morning. The air was clean and bright, and there was just enough breeze to make some lovely flutters of her pretty dark hair. Here are a few of my favorites.
