We moved!

We are now officially residents of Highland Park. Other than having some lame neighbors we are really loving the place. I snapped some pictures of the ins and outs of my new office, my very own new office, while the light was good.

What does is mean to turn 10? Some of the girls rattled off phrases to me that were important to them like, “double digits”, or “oh my god! You guys we are PRE-TEENS”. I am pretty confident, although I don’t know for sure, that these phrases would never come up at a boy’s 10th birthday party. So, what is it about young girls wanting to look and feel so much older than they are? Is it just me or is the age in which you begin to wish you were older gotten younger?

The 10th year of life for girls is important, to them it's a pivotal time, and I really like the idea of meeting up with these girls and documenting their 10th year.

Here are some more photos of the girls from Friday night. Hopefully their parents will allow me to photograph them again.

(these last four images were taken during a game of "paparazzi", where the girls run around posing and screaming while they pretend that viscous photographers are after them)

I want to be clear that these girls didn't show up to the party like this. They are normal kids who if given the opportunity would probably dress and look like this everyday, but they aren't so they don't. I didn't give them the cell phones, the ipods, some of the makeup and most of the clothing, or the sassy attitudes, but this was a birthday party where dressing up was the main attraction.

Thanks for looking!

This past weekend I had the honor of spending time with my niece, Chloe, at her 10th birthday party/sleepover. Other than Chloe I don't think I have spent any time with another 10 year old. I planned on taking some photos at the party but was pretty shocked to discover than 10 year olds are kind of insane. They are nothing like I was when I was 10, but I was a tomboy who dissected bugs for fun. They texted, sang Justin Bieber, liked makeup and high heels, basically they are 10 going on 18. Here are two photos from Friday night, more to come tomorrow....

oh ya and they look 18 too...
