I have a soft spot for sisters.
Ever since my own daughter became a big sister I’ve been sensitive to the tenderness between oldest & littlest, especially with an age gap wide enough to stall squabbles. (For now, true true. haha) I’m the baby in my own family, lucky to have big sisters I can lean on, so I get it. I think for a long time I did not, but I do now. And in these two, I see it.
ANOTHER soft spot: Mom in the picture.
We met up for this shoot before dinner on Father’s Day in between family get-togethers. I think it capped off a pretty good day for this Dad of two girls. I hope every kid remembers being carried by their dad like this…
At first, she hid from me. Through some family photos & while I took pictures of her cool-as-a-cucumber sister, she gently avoided me. And then while I pointed the lens at her parents she twirled & ran around in the sea breeze, non stop. At 3 & 1/2, I expect nothing less & loved watching her. I happened to be on my knees in the sand when she plopped herself down in front of me in the warmest light & gave me 4 seconds to take her picture, no more hiding.
Big thanks to this family for laughing at & with me during our time together. This was a really fun shoot, thank you for enjoying the moment with me!
Happy to be so,
