Be Awesome. Be YOU {tiful} Teens and Tweens

February 2, 2018

Hello friends!  I’m very excited about my new Poppy and Nash Photography T-Team, a unique photo-based program for teen and tween girls age 8-14, designed to help develop self-confidence. Through three portrait-party events, girls will get a view of themselves through a new lens, one which shows that their strength, personality, and character are the real measure of beauty.

I didn’t have much self-confidence growing up. So, when I launched my photography business, I knew that it was important to me to work with teens and tweens.  I believe that portrait photography can reveal true inner beauty, and by showing girls beautiful pictures of themselves, whether they are in a t-shirt or in a fancy dress, it helps build self-esteem.  With so many negative influences out there, even with the utmost family support, it is easy for teen and tween girls to lose sight of their strengths, beauty and character.  I want to be a small part of contributing to a positive experience which may help these girls to become confident, strong, influential young women.

Here’s the scoop on the program details. The first event is April 28 from 2-4 pm. Moms and teens come to the T-Team welcome party!  We’ll talk about what beauty means to us and take some fun portraits.  Mom too!  Then on August 18 from 1-5 pm we will have an afternoon of “Gloss and Glamour” with celebrity stylist Debbie Dover*, who is the mom of two teenage girls. Debbie will provide some lessons on how to be age-appropriate with hair and makeup and then give them a little-makeover before the portraits.  Girls are encouraged to wear their favorite outfit that shows off their individuality!  On Sept 8 or 15 at 10:30 am we will have a field trip to the carnival to take whimsical, colorful portraits. The girls will reflect on the experience with new friends and then they will set goals for the coming school year.

The Details:  Cost for the program is $265.  All the photos will be available to the parents via an online link with a photo release. Email Cindy Finke at for an application. Applications for the Poppy and Nash T-Team with full payment are due in order to hold your spot.  Spaces are limited!
