Teenagers are a strange kind of alien, they look like us and act like us, eventually they will even become us. That's where it ends ...
So what do you do for a teenager's birthday party, what is different, what keeps them entertained ?
How about letting them live their Next Top Model dreams. A birthday teenager, some friends, a travelling studio, some props and a patient photographer.
And so it was that I was invited to photograph one young teenager and her friends. 6 mostly shy girls entered the room with caution and fear. Oh and lots and lots of bags with clothes and shoes. Whilst I rerranged furniture and set up for the day. What happened over then next 2 hrs or so can only be described as great fun.
As the mother of the party girl said to me
" ... the girls came out of their shells after a very short period of time, you had them all laughing! The party was a great success and the girls had an amazing time, definitely one they won't forget! "
