The Teen Parent Portraits

I began photographing teenagers with a parent when my son Dante was 15 years old. I was witnessing the amazing changes that happen around this age. There is a beautiful spiritual as well as physical growth and unfolding as teenagers step more and more into themselves. 

This is one of those transitional times of life, strong emotional connections are obvious in the teen parent relationship, yet life for all is on the cusp of change, as the child becomes an adult and the adult relinquishes their child.
