Let’s talk tween fashion.  When you show up for a Kids of Pittsburgh photo shoot, you aren’t wearing your pajamas.  You’ve planned and had help styling what you’re going to wear.   You have to pick something that feels authentic to you and that is edgy and fashion forward!  That can be tricky for some and the number one question I get asked is “What do I wear?”

Well, here’s some ideas!  I decided to use feathers as inspiration this month.  Feathers are really ‘in’ right now and these are some awesome ways to wear them!

Let’s start with hair pieces.  Such a cool way to wear feathers! Front and center, especially in a photoshoot.  This head band adds an awesome pop of color around the face and can easily be removed for different looks.  Feather headbands are all over the place right now and easy to find!

This shirt rocks. It’s simple and perfect for summer with edgy boots and funky shorts.  Add some bangles and this is some serious street style.

This feather skirt with these boots and simple tee could NOT be any more amazing.  Someone please show up to a photoshoot in this.  Please! 😀

Jewelry is a great way to add a pop to your outfit of choice.  This feather necklace is perfect.  I also adore the pop of yellow in with these pants.  Street style doesn’t have to mean black and white and gray….these pants and awesome converse are a great example of how to rock color with an edge.

This look is a perfect mix between street-style and boho.  The feather necklace and tank are great for someone with a simpler style.

The most important thing to remember when looking at tween and teen fashion is to find what works for you! Kids of Pittsburgh photography sessions are edgy, fashion forward and street-styled.  It’s something different from your everyday photograph! Take advantage of that opportunity to capture an editorial style image.  It’s so much fun to feel and look like a page out of a fashion magazine.

Still wondering what to wear?  That’s what I’m here for! When you book a session with me, I provide the opportunity to meet with me to help style everyone involved in the shoot.

If you’d like to book a session, or have any questions about tween and teen fashion, give me a shout! I’d love to work with you to capture something awesome and create an amazing experience for your tween girl or boy.

Inspiration: As with all my tween sessions, I use the girls as my source of inspiration. I’m not a scouter when it comes to locations. I meet my clients somewhere fun and go where the session takes me. This session was about this amazing young lady, Jenna, and her fabulous friends. These girls showed up ready for fun. Their attitude and perfect wardrobe choices inspired me to rock some really intense pops of color and showcase their confidence.

Favorite Element: My favorite element turned out to be this awesome graffiti wall. It brought such a fun element of color to the session. It created that urban, edgy feel, with happy bright colors that still showcased their childhood.

Biggest Challenge: I shoot in full sun and it’s always my biggest challenge. I love it, it works well with my schedule. It helps me creates images with a style I love, but it will always be a challenge!

Final Thoughts: Photographing tweens and teens is so incredibly fun. These kids rock my camera every time and never cease to inspire me to try new things. I tell parents all the time, this age is worth capturing!

The girls met me on Pittsburgh’s north shore.  They had been up extremely late the night before, traveling home from a competition the day before, but you would never have guessed.  They showed up looking fabulous and full of energy!

It’s amazing how much talent tweens have.  They find what they love and the soar. I love to capture that!  This age is when you’re free to explore all different hobbies and activities and find what speaks to you.  Dancing, ice skating, horseback riding, chess, soccer, blogging, skateboarding, who knows! Whatever it is, it’s worth capturing.:)
