Ya’ll have heard of my Senior Squad. This group is for high school Juniors but I’ve always felt bad leaving out the rest of the teenagers. In the past few years, I’ve gotten asked over and over if I had a group for middle schoolers through 10th grade. So this year, we’re doing it!
Teen Squad will open in early February. This will be for anyone in 6th-10th grade and the group will be up to 10. Much like Senior Squad, Teen Squad will have group photoshoots, community service events and individual portraits.
Senior Squad has been great to prep high school juniors for college but probably not in the way you think. Senior Squad girls get to meet people from all over the Portland area they’ve never met before. So if you’ve gone to the same school with the same people since 1st grade, meeting new people can be daunting. And when you go to college, you usually go without friends.
Meeting new people and doing photoshoots with crazy themes that push you a bit out of your comfort zone helps build your self-confidence. I want younger teens to have the opportunity as well.
High school can be tough. Middle school is tough too. So let’s celebrate who you’re becoming, let’s build that confidence so that when opportunities arise, you say yes! You try new things, meet new people and don’t worry so much about what others think. Because what really matters is what you think about yourself.
More details to come!
