For Halloween this year my sweet little nieces Maddie and Penny dressed up as the White Swan and the Black Swan. These sisters love ballet so much just like their mama. Halloween morning came and even with a bit of rain we ventured to Clear Lake Park for some quick pics.
I want to remember how Maddie kept asking if that was real water.
I want to remember how Penny was a bit OCD about keeping the white and black feathers together.
I want to remember how Natalie critiqued Maddie's "swan" arms.
I want to remember how Penny kept her headband on though she usually can't stand wearing things on her head.
Can't wait for many more Halloweens with these sweet, funny girls!

Every time I photograph Sophie I'm sure of a couple of things: 1) We are going to have a lot of fun & 2) She's going to work the camera! For Sophie Fall session we used her lovely backyard for a backdrop, taking in the beautiful greenery and waterside. I have the pleasure of teaching Sophie at Feijoo Ballet School and week to week I see her grow as a dancer. However it's during these seasonal portrait sessions with her that I step back and see how much she's growing and maturing in a lovely young lady! And of course Bear, her large furry companion, joined us for a few shots, making the session even MORE fun. Looking forward to the next one with these two!
