Do you worry that your tween is losing her confidence?
Those tween years are really tough! There’s a lot of pressure to fit in with the “cool” crowd and to act more grown up than they are. Not quite children any more but not teens either, many kids can be left feeling lost and lonely.
What if you could celebrate and empower your child to grow her confidence? To let her feel just how much she means to you and to all of the people in her life.
The goal of the be.Tween Project, by Silent Poetry, is to create portraits that celebrate children aged 9 – 12 for who they are and not just what they look like. With a 3 step system, we show kids how special they are in their own unique way.
Step 1 – Questionnaires
Who are the important people in your child’s community? Her parents, a favourite teacher, maybe a coach and a best friend or a sibling. Each of these people will be asked to complete a questionnaire about her. And we will ask her to answer a few questions, as well. This helps us to really get to know your child and to plan the perfect session for her.
Step 2 – Portrait Session
Your child will feel like a star at her own custom portrait session! This session is all about telling her story in a way that is fun and natural. Without stiff, uncomfortable posing, these sessions are pressure-free and result in beautiful portraits that capture her spirit.
Step 3 – Presentation/Ordering Appointment
At this appointment, your child will view their portraits for the first time. Presented as a beautiful slideshow, the portraits will be paired with quotes from all of the most important people in her life. Can you imagine how it would feel to read powerful, moving quotes from the people you love alongside incredible portraits that celebrate the real you?
The be.Tween Project is Silent Poetry’s gift to the community and there is no cost to participate. It is open to both girls and boys and each child will receive a credit of $100 toward the purchase of a keepsake from their session. Wall portraits and albums will also be available for purchase but there will never be any pressure to make a purchase.
Celebration, Diversity and Inclusion are some of our core values and it’s important to us that this project is available to children from all walks of life. This would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, including Flying Unlimited and Hawk Inspired.
