    Default Trying to get 52 weeks of a teen.

    I started a 52 week project with my daughters on their birthdays last year, anyway I mentioned to my older daughter today that I needed this weeks photo and she says to me "only one more week" it made me sad to think that she doesn't want to do this again, shes grown so much in a year and I love being able to look back over it. Any ideas on getting a 13 year old eager to do a weekly photo?

    Show her some cool 356 or 52 projects from other people... she might be inspired! I have my teen go through fashion magazines and style most of her own shoots... Then it is more fun.

    This is what I was going to suggest. Have her style the shoot herself. Beth, Drea was exactly who came to mind

    I think if you do show her some projects then maybe she could get excited about it. If not, go with the bribery. Good for you for taking a photo once a week!

    Yup, I agree with all the pp. I use fruit snacks as bribery for my little guys

    I really do think she'd get into it if she felt she was in charge though. I remember being that age and feeling like I had no control over any choices in my life. Hope you can figure out something that works!

    Here is a girl that was featured on framed for her self portrait work http://www.flickr.com/photos/kelseyphoto/ Might appeal to that age!
