"Self-esteem is a set of attitudes and beliefs that a person brings with him or herself when facing the world. It includes beliefs as to whether he or she can expect success or failure..." Stanley Coopersmith, Coopersmith Self-esteem Inventories Manual
A study in Murfreesboro Tennessee shows evidence that personal photography of children seen and enjoyed in a specific way can help boost a child's self esteem.
The key word here is SEEN. Yes, your photos can be seen on a tablet or phone, but placing a photo somewhere in the home where the child can see it everyday without having to turn on a device really can hit home for that child a sense of reassurance and comfort. A large photo on the wall signals visually and subconsciously that you are PROUD of them and PROUD to have them as part of the family. It lets them know in a very visual sense that they are loved and cared for.
Our Power of Prints portrait series is the foundation of our business model. We are all about trying to boost children's self esteem. The fact that we can help a child, even just a little bit, feel better about themselves through a printed photo on a wall brings us unequivocal joy.
Photo sessions in the power of prints series are shot in classical black and white. We add a bit of snap for a modern twist.
