As parents, many of us recognise the importance of professional photography at the exquisite ages when children are newborns or cheeky young pre-schoolers. But there is something very cool about capturing the independent spirit that shines through in older children. Maggie (12) and Leo (8) came into the studio for a session that was really focused on reflecting them as the individuals they are...and are becoming. Strong, a wee bit pre-teen grunge (I remember those years myself!) and in Maggie's case especially, honestly and determinedly breaking the mould.
