Okay folks, lemme tell y'all something. These girls. I mean, THESE girls are super awesome, gorgeous, fun, and freaking adorable!
I have been watching them grow up in front of my lens since they were babies. I'm serious. The eldest is just about the same age as my eldest and their dad used to be my boss and mentor when it came to photography (still is BTW). He is also a great role model for any young, up and coming leader in today's society.
Then there is their mother. A gorgeous, creative, smart and goal-driven woman who knows what she wants and gets after it. She also knows the strengths of others (even when they don't see it in themselves) and helps them achieve their own goals. I'm telling ya, these girls have fantastic parents to look up to. I wouldn't be surprised to see these girls succeed in whatever they put their minds too. I mean face it, their mom and dad have pretty much did any and everything while finally figuring out what they wanted to contribute to today's society. (though, I'm pretty sure once they succeed or tire of that, they'll move onto another challenge! I just know it)
But when I found out they too were moving to El Paso the same time frame as I was, I was completely over the moon. Not only would I know at least ONE other family here in El Paso, I would be able to see these girls grow up! (and the fact that I get to photograph them again, I mean BONUS!)
I mean come on?! Look at them! They literally just had to LOOK at my camera and make my photographer heart swoon! They (and their momma) definitely took my simple theme and WORKED IT!
The two above pictures make me giggle. Why? Because they are each wearing something they didn't want to but the crazy photographer wanted to just "try it out and see how it goes." LOL The eldest looked at me strange when I tied the scarf around her head. <3 Uh, but look how good she looks?! Then the littlest did NOT want to wear the tassel necklace ... LOL ... like nope. haha! But she looks fantastic and rocked it!
I made the "dreamcatchers" that hung in the bushes behind them as well as the flower crowns and the leather headband. I brought the vests (minus the fur one), everything else was their momma's eye and the help of their own style. I mean, I couldn't have dreamt this session going any better! <3
Above we tried the whole "wind blown look." But of course when we tried it, the wind was no where to be found! haha! So little sister held out the scarf for big sister and viola!
One request momma did have was to get some sisterly images for her. And I hope I did just that. These two may bicker with one another like all siblings do but the love they share for one another shows in each of their sister portraits! <3 Thank you for being creative with me!
