Ohhh where to start with these 3 ladies…..actually make that 4, I have 4 people to gush about for this shoot. Four years ago I had little experience shooting kids and in an effort to change that I said to my sister “hey, can you ask your friend Susanne if I can take pictures of her girls” and I am so glad I had the gutts to do it, because it started one of my favorite yearly traditions! When I think back to my first shoot with these girls, I can’t help but giggle about a few things….little Emily was so shy, and I think she only liked me because I gave her gum. 😉 She was so little and now, the girl who used to not speak gives me ideas, tells me what shots she think would work great and pretty much talks my ear off! Myla is still sweet as ever! I’ll never forget the purple tutu she wore at our first shoot and the dance moves she showed me on the beach! She is always SO polite and kind to her sisters, you can see she loves them so much! And those dimples?! Ahh, they just melt my heart! And then there’s Natalie….who was missing her two front teeth the first time I took her picture 🙂 I’ll never forget the sweet shoes and leg warmers she wore to that first shoot, I told her I wanted some like hers and I think that won her over! She was the leader of the pack then and still is now. Big sister, always on the lookout for her little sisters. I love it when she gets the giggles during our shoots, once she starts she just can’t stop! Laughter is contagious and when she starts all her sisters start…all I have to do to get these girlies to giggle is say “look at your sisters” and for some reason just looking at each other brings out the giggles, the jokes, the tickles…I love it!!!
This is one shoot I scheme and dream all year for, I save up my ideas and send them to Susanne who works her magic and brings the ideas to life with her special loving touch. She is so creative and so imaginative! One of the things I love so much about our shoots is watching her as she see’s her girls laughing, enjoying and playing in the little world she created just for them. It’s so hard for me to walk away at the end of our shoots, I could snap and snap and snap. I never want them to end because it means I have to wait 365 more days to do it again.
Thanks to the little ladies for stepping in front of my camera and thanks to Susanne for trusting me with capturing her girls year after year. Love you all!!!
Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!!!
