Pre-teen photos are not always the easiest. This is the age when they are often the most uncomfortable and awkward. Exhibit A: show me your middle school photos.
The key to getting the best photos of your tween is to work with a family photographer who is skilled in posing and knows how to work with kids that age. After six years as a middle school teacher, I get those little weirdos. They don't want to be talked down to like a little kid, they want to be recognized with the adults. We'll do that. They'll feel seen. And maybe they'll let their wall down and get a little silly with us.
