Back to school, middle school photos can be a tricky line. I didn't want to be all cheesy, like you can with the younger grades, but still wanted some photos of my daughter. I think the pics that I took are fun, not too young looking, but not any of the stupid fish-lips either. Below are a few of the ones I got, not to mention my daughter is so easy to photograph.
I have to say, an easy subject helps tremendously. My husband and I totally lucked out with our daughter, she is so laid back, hardly any attitude, and she helps out when asked. I know a lot of people with teenage girls, say how hard it is, I (fingers crossed) have had absolutely no major, not even mediocre problems with her! She is kind, hates it when people talk behind others backs, and she is funny! She doesn't always get along with her younger brothers, but that is to be expected, my 5-yr-old did just help himself to her new tattoo kit. I never cared if I had kids, now I have three, the image below sums it up nicely.
