Emo Girl

Emo, a genre of rock music and affiliated fashion styles and attitudes...Emo clothing is characterized by tight jeans on males and females alike, long fringe (bangs) brushed to one side of the face or over one or both eyes, dyed black, straight hair, tight t-shirts which often bear the names of rock bands (or other designed shirts), studded belts, belt buckles, canvas sneakers or skate shoes or other black shoes (often old and beaten up) and thick, black horn-rimmed glasses.

A certain phase my daughter took up in her teen life, it was a state of mind, a lifestyle, a fad? Whatever it was it was so significant it became a big part of her growing up life. In this session we imortalize that moment, that phase, that time when she was what we call "The Emo Girl".
