Well, as I have said before, families of two girls invariably remind me of my own family of origin. And every time I see siblings together I recall how much younger children look up to and want to emulate their older siblings. It is almost a axiom of nature. In my family I was the oldest.
These beautiful sisters are no exception. In these cases the best strategy is usually to engage the oldest in order to make the youngest desperate to work with me rather than resistant. Works nearly every time. E was a little shy when I arrived so A had a “private shoot” while E got ready for her own portraits. In the end, wow, they were both so much fun to play around with and photograph. A was contemplative and revealing and E was a little ham. Then there were the boots! I generally prefer barefeet, when these girls came out in their boots I was swooning. Kids wearing either hats or boots, you can’t really get any cuter.
And after everyone had warmed up and gotten their glamour on, we moved to family photos. These are Daddy’s girls who want their mom to stay real close too. They love piggy back rides and sitting in laps–and most of all, these sisters really love one another!
Enjoy, I sure did.
