with a FREE photo session for your tween (ages 10-12)
AS A PARENT, I'M SURE YOU STRUGGLE WATCHING YOUR PRETEEN LIVE THROUGH SOME STUFF THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD MAGICALLY MAKE BETTER.
Self-esteem can be developed or crushed in an instant, especially for the preteen (ages 10-12). This is a notoriously rough age, and I'm sure we all have our own "survival" stories.
There's no easy solution to this. But I want to do what little I can with the tools and talents I have, to reach out and help make a positive impact wherever and whenever possible. Getting back to my roots (psychology, child development, art therapy and photography), I am starting a new photo project that I'd love for you to be a part of.
Participants receive a FREE photo session ($99 value),
and $50 credit towards purchase of a collection.
But this is soooooo much MORE than just a photo shoot...

About The Photographer
Hey there... I'm Michelle, the one behind the camera.
Long story short: The camera has been an extension of my hand for most of my life, and I've been running The Suitcase Studio for nearly 10 years now... providing FUN + stress-free photo sessions for the quirky, authentic + AWESOME.
With my Bachelors Degree in Psychology, and a few years working in children's group homes, I've seen the HUGE difference that positive self-esteem can make in a child's life. And I want to do whatever I can with the tools I have, to make whatever difference I can. Funnily enough, I still use my psychology training and insight on each + every photo shoot... calming nerves, connecting on personal level, and showcasing true beauty... both inside AND out!
"That video is amazing! Cadin loved it! He cried. Sweet boy.
Thank you so much. That was just what he needed."
"Oh, my word, Michelle. That was fantastic!! We watched it with Braeden and then I sent it to my sisters and my parents. They all loved it. It was so special! I was laughing, though, because Braeden kept going, 'When did she take that picture?!' And 'I don't remember that!' Haha. He really loved all of the added thoughts from family, too."
"Ok so I'm obviously amazed!
I want the package with the sun, moon and stars... lol."
“Thank you!!! We love the pictures and video. Emily was tearing up while watching the video. She is a very sentimental person so this really meant a lot to her. ”
The "WHO I AM" Project
soooo much MORE than just a photo shoot!
Prior to the session, you'll receive questionnaires to SECRETLY pass out to family + friends. Then the 30-40 minute photo session will take place, showcasing your tween's personality and what they love. After your session, a video will be created, combining the new photos with quotes pulled directly from those questionnaires. Within 3 weeks after your session, you'll receive a link to view all the photos and the VIDEO.
Think about it... if someone surprised YOU with 15-20 positive quotes about yourself, how would you feel?
I bet it would be pretty dang AMAZING!
Qualifying participants will receive a FREE photo session ($99 value), as well as $50 credit towards the purchase of a collection. That's a $149 value, for FREE.
Sessions are EXTREMELY LIMITED.
