Teen Portrait Photography

For this contest, we invite you to share your best teen portraits. Teenagers enjoy capturing their youth through photographs, and taking teen portraits is a creative way to do just that. From classic poses in the studio to candid captures on the street, teens have the opportunity to explore a range of photographic options. Studio settings provide the privacy and control to set up the perfect portrait backdrop or composition, while incognito shots often reveal more natural expression and surprise during candid moments. Exploring different types of photography can help capture a variety of memories and emotions, creating portfolio pieces that can last for years.

Teen Portraits Photo Tips

Taking portrait photos of teenagers can be daunting, especially when you consider how quickly they can change. To obtain the best photographs of this age group, it's important to establish trust and a sense of comfort. Start by talking to the teenager—ask them questions that will help make them feel understood and relaxed in front of the camera. If possible, take photos while they participate in activities they enjoy, as these often yield more natural smiles and expressions. Lastly, don't be afraid to get creative during the session. Incorporate bright colors and fun props if that is something your teen subject is interested in. By taking your time and exploring what makes them unique, you'll ensure gorgeous photos that show their personalities at their very best.
