Three years ago these two had their first baby, and, you know, she’s totally adorable, with a sharp mind and a sweet disposition (and some killer curls). It’s a thrill to raise her and, for me, to watch her grow. And then they decide–she’s so fun, let’s try this again! And lightening struck twice. Another girl–sweet, adorable, and clever. And the curls are on their way.
I have been photographing these girls and their super-star parents for more than two years. The girls know me. Big sister threatens not to smile, but ultimately she starts to have fun, to smile and, mostly, to reflect glow of her parents’ love (occasionally being reminded of the ice cream she has been promised, of course–she is a three year old after all!). And the little one. She had me wrapped around her finger right away. Full of the most hilarious expressions and infinitely kissable. She reminded me so much of the big girl when she was the same age.
They are girls with a dad who beams when he looks at them. Mom with a huge heart and a great zeal for all that the parts–delightful and frustrating–of raising girls. The house is filled with princesses, babies, girly-clothes, and lots of hair accessories. And two girls who are making off with hearts.
