Featured Artist: Linda Brooks

Linda Brooks is a portrait photographer and educator based in Seattle. In her years as a professional portrait photographer, she has witnessed that families often have professional portraiture done of their children when they are babies and toddlers and then not again until they are graduating from high school or getting married!  And, in her decades working as an educator, she has recognized that the tween years are a time of big transitions and a time when self-esteem can be vulnerable.  What if we put more emphasis on celebrating this time?  What if we took an opportunity to reflect back to girls how strong, talented, and courageous they are! Imagine how this could positively impact girls as they head into their adolescent years.  This is how The Empower Project was born!

The goal of The Empower Project is to capture the personality and strength of tweens and reflect back to them how talented, smart, gifted, and loved they are simply for being themselves!  Linda wants to help tweens solidify their self-confidence, realize their true beauty and value, and to encourage them to lead empowered lives!
