We had such a great time creating images for Peyton’s modeling portfolio. Her agency asked for a variety of shots so we do full length, 3/4, headshots, smiling photos, and serious looks. She ended up with enough shots to get a really great start to her book!
Ok, so sure… a model needs this as a tool to get her work – but what about how wonderful it made her feel? How high did it boost her self-esteem?
When Peyton and her mom came back for their selection appointment, they absolutely loved all the shots, and pretty much ordered every one of them for her modeling portfolio, but Peyton especially flipped over one, and her mom over another. Both ladies just HAAAAAD to have these shots on the wall!! So mom chose her favorite, to be printed as a 16×20, and Peyton chose her fav as a 24×30 which will definitely dominate her bedroom wall! 🙂
Sure, her mom spent more on those extra shots, but she realized just how amazing it would be for her teenage daughter to have these gorgeous images of herself, to remind her every day, just how beautiful she is, inside and out. Since it was a bit more of a stretch on the portfolio budget, Mom told her she could have the big print as her birthday gift! Peyton was just over the moon!!
I just got the prints back from the lab. When I opened that big box and saw that stunning print, I was so overwhelmed that I actually said aloud, to myself, “Her friends are going to be sooooooooooo envious!”!!! Oh, they will be! They are all going to be want to do a modeling session!
Why not? Why can’t her friends just do a session for the amazing experience of having incredible images of themselves, that make them feel like a supermodel? Maybe they aren’t the one-in-a-million girl who makes it to the magazine covers… but why can’t they have that same experience of a supermodel and feel what it’s like to have everything focused on making them look and feel amazing? Imagine what that can do for the typical teenage girl who is so unsure of herself. Imagine the confidence it can build!
That’s why I’m inspired to tell all the moms and dads out there to give the amazing gift of a strong sense of self-esteem to your daughters! Give them the opportunity to shine, and celebrate them with images of them that are absolutely radiant! Help her discover her true beauty – perhaps even for the very first time! Isn’t she worth it?
