As they grow up, teenagers can become more reluctant to pose for a camera, and I know this from my own experience of trying to photograph my own son, Tom. He literally hides when I reach for it and only lets me photograph him if I bribe him with money! But also because it is such a rarity that he relaxes in front of the camera for long enough mind you, he did only give me five minutes to take it! Thankfully my daughter, Lizzie, is far more cooperative than Tom usually is. Of course, as a child and family photographer, I have years of experience photographing children of all ages. But this is particularly important with teenagers. As Tom did, they will likely only give you a few minutes to take the shot, so make those minutes count! Older kids want to feel they are not being patronised or spoken to like a child. So, when photographing teenagers, communication is key.
