Dear Mom of a Tween Girl... | Albuquerque Portrait Photographer Kat Oswald Photography

Dear Mom of a “Tween” girl,

This is such a powerful and vulnerable time for your daughter. I can only imagine what it's like for you to watch her as she navigates this pivotal point in her childhood. I know it's hard to find the balance when you want to protect her, yet you need to let her start doing more on her own.  I so remember when I was that age… The growing up, figuring out my place in life, dealing with "mean girls" and the pressure to fit into crazy standards destroying my own sense of self…

I remember all too clearly the stress and insecurities of that time in life… In fact, that is exactly what prompted me to write to you.

You remember it too - those elementary school and middle school days, don’t you?

The searching… wondering if you would get it right… the glances in the mirror, do you fit in, are you beautiful, are you enough?

Stop for a minute, and imagine the impact of being able to help your daughter see TODAY that who she is is indeed enough.

The Impact Portrait Project was created to empower young girls in a season of life where they often feel vulnerable, insecure, and unseen.

Together with your daughter, you will identify a few words that describe the best of who she is, and I will capture these traits in a series of honest, real, fine art portraits of her, highlighting her true beauty and giving her a tangible and visual reminder of the very best she has to offer: Herself.  Because she is more than beautiful.  She is more than enough.

No glam dresses or tons of makeup...

Just her… As she already is.



I know you already see it in her… NOW is your opportunity to help her see it in herself:

I am beautiful. I am strong. I am unique. Smart. Funny. Fearless. Powerful. Magnetic. Creative. Generous. Honest. Talented.  Brave.  Authentic. So loved...

 I am a world changer.

I am…… The possibilities are endless.  Think of the impact this will have on her...

Don’t wait.
