The Who I Am Projects  have been such a success and honestly the highlight of my year that I am offering them again this year.  Tween ages are often forgotten. At ages 10­-13, kids aren’t children anymore but aren’t quite teens. I’m making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves as they enter and navigate middle school.

I can talk at you for hours about the positive affects this session will have on your girl.  But I think this year I will ask their loved ones to do it for me.

"I loved the “Who I Am” project for our daughter! We bought it as a 12th birthday present for her in 2016. Deb Hanna made it such a fun experience for all of us and the end result was a book and memories of beautiful words from our family members and friends, that she can (and does!) look at often.  Deb was able to make our daughter laugh and captured her smile and fun personality and all the while, made sure the focus of this project truly was on my tween.  The tween stage of a child’s life can be a trying time and I appreciate the opportunity to show our daughter how much we all love her. We loved every minute of her experience!  Deb, you are a consummate professional and we shared some fun laughs in the process."

  Thank you, from the Libby family, Ludlow, MA


The whole experience was great! Deb really worked with my daughter to make the shoot special and fun.  The pictures Deb took really captured her personality.  The quotes from family and friends really tie the project together. My daughter just recently pulled out the album to show relatives during the holidays. It still brings a smile to her face when she's looking at the album and reading the quotes.


I could keep sharing- Moms emailed or stop me in town all the time telling me how great this experience was for their girls or their friends.  In fact just a week ago I had a lovely conversation with a grandmother of one of the girls from last year.

How does it work??

I am looking for girls ages 10-13. I will ask the model and their parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art.  We want to capture the personality of these tweens and record the last stage of their childhood before they become young ladies. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves as they travel through middle school.   Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your tween’s self-image.

Please contact me by January 15th, 2018 if you are interested in having your daughter participate.   These sessions will occur January through March 2018.  We will take the pictures at your home or a studio I am borrowing for this purpose.  The session itself is complimentary but I am asking for a $100 deposit to secure your spot, and will be taken off your final order. Our goal is to create a gorgeous group of photos you’ll love and that truly show your daughter’s spirit and soul! Many people like to use these photos as birthday, holiday, and “just because” gifts for their daughter. These sessions will lend themselves best to Albums and Images boxes and those collections start at $250.

I look forward to hearing from you!
