This is an entry I can really sink my teeth into. Love shooting teens, having two (almost 3!) of my own. The mecurial moods and going-100-directions-at-once can make it a challenge, but when you get that one image that shows a fleeting moment of what it feels like to be a teenager, it seems to stop time. Shows you a glimpse into that world while simultaneously transporting you back to your own time spent in those short, magical years. I know many parents complain that their teens never want to be in photos (mine included) and it can be frustrating, but keep mentioning it every once in awhile. I recently was thrilled when my oldest asked if I would take a few shots.
Below is my entry for I [heart] faces: Celebrating Teen. Just a capture of that interaction that I really loved.
Who doesn't love a good play photo? For I heart photos: Play entry this week, I had lots to choose from, an enviable position, I know, but ultimately went with this one. A favorite, it's of my two oldest daughters playing around, sitting practically on top of each other in one chair. Doing what sisters do best: being silly.
For "yellow", below, is one of my favorite photos of Carsey. We were at grandma's house, where there is NO CELL RECEPTION, and lo, what a travesty that was for a 15-year-old. She "allowed" me to take a few photos since she "had nothing else to do." LOL, when she's my age, she'll crave being somewhere with no cell service.
Yes, she was really crying. Upset because she didn't come home in time from playing and knew she'd missed dinner. (Not that she couldn't still have it, but it was her favorite thing and she didn't like it as well reheated.) And just so you think I'm not completley heartless, she had already calmed down and this was the last residual tear. I was already out shooting when she came up to me and I stopped, talked to her first, then shot this.
