Capturing teen girls off-guard when it comes to a photo opportunity is difficult, but Julia Peirone was able to do it in her 'More Than Violet' teen portraits photo series.

When you first see the images in the series you'll probably think they were taken by mistake or that the photographer picked the wrong ones. But that is exactly what Peirone wanted for her 'More Than Violet' teen portraits photo series.

Full of interesting and realistic quirks like hair flicks and eye rolls, the series is designed in a way to portray the "in between" moments of girls from childhood to womanhood. What makes the series unique is the candid vulnerability of showing these young women without the composure and allure they try to portray at all times at that age.
