How Photography Boost Confidence & Self-Esteem in Kids and Teens

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words–so imagine what message you are sending with photos of your children and family placed all around the home. Family and individual photos are a fantastic way to reinforce your child or teens self-image and confidence, from the time they begin crawling all the way up until they are adults themselves.  

Photographs serve as a sort of “proof” that a child’s family loves and cares for them, although families don’t tend to see it that way. They just see the children and young adults that they have raised, loved, and cared for in photos that remind everyone of a special time in their lives. Photographs show children and teens that they are an important, valued part of the family. Taking photographs allows you to make memories with your children and family that you can look back on and cherish in the years to come.   

Inspire Confidence 

Even if children or teens are too shy or embarrassed to fully enjoy photos all the time, professional photographs with touch-ups, hair and makeup, and a curated style or wardrobe can go a long way towards helping them feel more comfortable in front of the camera. 

Photographs allow children’s interests, imagination, and creativity to come to light. When you get professional portraits taken, children get positive reinforcement that they are important, and their presence within the family matters and they are cared for by those around them. 

 A budding teenager or young adult about to enter the next phase of their life can benefit hugely from seeing photos of themselves in a positive and comfortable situation. A growing child can look back fondly on a baby book or album and cherish the unique keepsakePre-planning a portrait session allows everyone to prepare fully and provides high quality images so that kids and teens can see themselves in a new, positive light.  

Take Photos & Gain So Much More 

Portraits have a special kind of power to boost a child’s confidence and self-love. While technology has made it easier to snap photos instantly and upload or save them to social media, a professionally taken profile picture looks much better on social media compared to the usual selfie or awkward photos in low light or strange angles. Professionally taken photos can be used as profile picture on a variety of platforms, can be shared with family and friends, and can be turned into beautiful portraits to adorn the home. 

Photos capture and display memories, and for self-conscious kids or teens a planned session with professional touch-ups can take the stress and anxiety out of being photographed. These photos can serve as both a positive memory to look back on fondly, a confidence-booster, and a small piece of their own history to be passed down. A self-doubting teenager can be amazed looking at their images after a bit of professional hair and makeup and a fun session. 

Here are a few reasons to invest in portraits and documenting milestones of your family, from the maternity stage to when they begin adulthood and have families of their own: 

  • Make family memories together 
  • Boost self-confidence and sense of belonging 
  • Preserve family history 
  • Create positive associations with photos 
  • Build up a sense of self & place within the family 
  • Encourage interests, hobbies, and creativity 
  • Document milestones and growing families
