But choosing the right location for your portraits can be what makes them truly meaningful instead of, "just some pictures of us." So how do you pick the right place?

As adults, there are a few things we can do to repair and improve their self confidence. One of my favourites for those on the cusp of adulthood is to remind them of how spectacular they are. Whether it's by subtly dropping them compliments or creating time to celebrate their achievements, we can help the young adults in our lives recognize how amazing they are and believe it.
