Kiss Middle School Troubles Goodbye | Kat Oswald Photography - Albuquerque Tween Photographer

I hear it all too often...

"We'll wait and have some pictures taken when she's out of her awkward phase."

"This probably isn't the best time for her to have photos done, let's wait until she gets her braces off."


Mom, what if you embraced the imperfect, and empowered your daughter, RIGHT NOW, just as she is?

You see, the very things you're waiting on are the very things she may be most insecure about...  The things that stop her from seeing her true beauty and feeling confident in her own skin. 

I know she doesn't see herself the way you see her.  Perhaps she can't get past her mouthful of braces and is self-conscious about her knobby knees or that recent growth spurt.  Guess what...  We can do something together right now to help her through this stage, to give her confidence.

What is the IMPACT Portrait Project?

The IMPACT Fine Art Portrait Project was created to empower young girls in a season of life where they often feel vulnerable, insecure, and self conscious.

As a part of this project, your daughter will identify a positive trait that describes her through a pre-session questionnaire, and I will capture this favorite trait in real, honest portraits of her. This project will highlight her true beauty, and will give her a visual reminder of the very best she has to offer: Herself. Because she is so much more than beautiful.  


What are the Details?

Sessions typically take place in our beautiful studio, located just outside of Old Town Albuquerque behind Ponderosa Brewing Company.  A pre-session questionnaire will be emailed to you a few weeks before the session.  Approximately 10 days after your 30-minute portrait session you will be invited back into the studio to view at least 20 of your images on a slideshow to music where you both can select your favorite.  While viewing these images, beautiful heartfelt quotes will come across the screen - messages from Mom, Dad, Siblings....  

Your daughter will receive (1) 8x10 Print (of your choice), printed with her “I AM…” text, for display at home where she can be reminded daily where her true beauty lies.

Prints & products available for purchase during the viewing appointment.  There is no minimum order amount and no purchase required.  You only buy what you absolutely love.
