The teen portrait experience

Teen Portraits

As a professional portrait photographer, I can’t stress enough how important teen portraits are in boosting your confidence and celebrating your unique journey. 

Whether you’re a high school senior excitedly stepping into the next chapter of your life or a teen exploring your passions and interests, capturing this incredible stage is a must.

 During our portrait sessions at Sarah Marshall Photography, I create a safe and empowering space where you can be your true, authentic self. 

I believe that each of you has a story worth telling, and through these portraits, we capture your vibrant personality, inner strength, and undeniable beauty. 

These images serve as a powerful reminder of your worth and uniqueness, building self-esteem and empowering you to embrace who you are. 

So, let’s celebrate this exciting chapter together and create stunning portraits that will make you feel confident and proud. 

Reach out to me today and let’s capture the essence of your incredible journey!


Showcase your talents

Showcasing your sport, hobby, or creative talent can be incorporated into your teen portrait photoshoot. I would love to hear about some of your favourite things. 

Here are some ideas: Dance, Gymnastics, Skate Boarding, Roller Skating, You with your musical instruments, painting or drawing, or perhaps you play soccer or netball and we can photograph you in your sports uniform.


I can’t wait to photograph you and spend the day celebrating you and everything you’ve achieved so far!

I just know that after your Photoshoot you are going to feel incredible, confident, and ready to take on the world!

What a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday, end of high school, or showcase your talent in sports or creative arts.

Send me and email or give me a call. If you are a parent booking for your teenager then please let me know their age and any else I need to know. If you are 18 and booking your own photoshoot please let me know and we can plan it together.

Here are some ideas:

A ball dress / party dress / formal suit

A cute cardi / chunky sweater / fav jacket

Make sure you bring undergarments that go with the outfits so that we cannot see bra straps for example.

Think about shoes that go with each look and make sure they are clean.

Make sure clothing is clean and tidy, ironed and all the buttons are attached, etc.

Try some things on, bring a few options and we can decide on the top 2-4 options before we start.

Client Review

“Sarah was so amazing throughout my whole teen experience photoshoot. I loved getting my hair and makeup done, which made me feel confident in myself, and after being so nervous and awkward at the start, by the end of the photoshoot I was super excited and was amazed by the end results. I enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend it to others”




I would love to hear from you!
