The Empowerment Project

Tucson tween child photographer black and white empowerment quotes for girls

We say it all the time! 


"Where does the time go!?" 


As I stare at my own tween, thinking this very thing. I realize that I had few images of her right now.


Babies are so cute, new and chubby. Toddlers have those big, bright eyes and lets face it, they just do the darnedest things. But those tween ages are often forgotten. At ages 10-­12, kids aren't children anymore but aren't quite teens.


I decided to do something about that for my own daughter, and the results on her self image became so evident in her eyes and on her face.


How had I almost missed making an impact on such an important stage in her life? Showing her all of her beauty.  I knew then that this was something I wanted to do. With a little tweaking and a little finesse, this could be something amazing for young girls. More then just images. But something positive and incredible for self image. 


It's time to empower our young girls.

Empowering them when they are young begins building that important

foundation to become teens who have a positive self image

and incredible confident women in both life and workplace



For this reason,  I'm making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high. The goal is to Empower them.


In comes The Empowerment Project We are starting the Empowerment photography project to fill in the forgotten photo years while enriching the lives of pre­teens. The main goal is to make pre­teens look and feel beautiful and be confident in who they are.


Who we're looking for We are looking for female models for our photography project, ages 10-­12. We will ask the model and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.


Why Empowerment? We want to capture the the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they hit Junior High. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tween's self ­image.

Most Empowerment clients choose to spend between $800 and $1200 on additional product, Some substantially more, some choose to spend less, there is no minimum purchase requirement.
