Embracing Families with Teens
By Christa Paustenbaugh
What to expect
Do you immediately start sweating when you get an inquiry for a session that includes pre teens and teens? Do you refer out sessions with older children and teens because they stress you out too much? Never fear, this is where I come in! Prior to my photography career, I worked as a social worker in middle and high schools for 10 years and have two teenagers of my own so they hold a special place in my heart! I’m going to walk you through how I prep for a session that includes teens before I even meet them. I’m going to arm you with strategies for your back pocket when things start to go awry. Follow along with me through a full session with 2 teens and how to create beautiful interactive images.

If you photograph families often like I do and freeze when you get teens, go and purchase Christa Kendall Paustenbaughs course Embracing families with teens!
I had a session yesterday evening with 4 boys (ages 15, 10, 7 and 3) and because of her course I didn’t freeze and wonder what I should be doing! The 15 year old was VERY laid back and pretty much did what I suggested but he was NOT overly excited at all 🤣🤣 I have another family session today with some teens and feel more prepared than ever!!
