"Its Not What We Have In Life,
But Who We Have In Life That Matters." -J.M. Laurence
While I sit here as Hurricane Harvey starts to invade my area, I find myself longing to return to this lovely day on the beach with Julie and her family. There are not many thing I'll wake up before daylight for, a sunrise photo session one the beach is on of 'em.
"Sisters are like flowers in the garden of life" -unknown
These sisters had my heart from the very beginning of their session. Whenever I'd tell them to do whatever they want they would instantly hug. It was so very apparent how much sisterly love they had for one another. I so enjoyed capturing their sweet spirits witch each click of the shutter as we danced around Helen's Garden and League City Park.
I know I'm a little behind with the whole "year in review" thing but I figured as long
as I published this before February 1st I was still good...!
In no particular order, here are my top 16 portraits of 2016 and
why they were my favorites of the year.
My sweet little nieces get more adorable by the day. Maddie is the cutest little stinker however I feel like Penny is going to give her a run for her money! A couple of months ago when I was in town, I photographed these two in their sweet little sister outfits. A favorite moment from this session was when we were trying to get Maddie to hold Penelope. All she wanted to do was to run around so we talked her into holding her Anna doll which totally did the trick! She posed with Anna for a few photos and then we swapped Anna out for little sister. It was hilarious and precious!
These two have my heart completely and I adore being their Aunt C. Every photo shoot is more special than the last. Their mommy, my sister, told me that recently Maddie told her, "Aunt C come over? Photos with Penny P?" I love that she loves being in front of the camera for me and that she loves posing with her sister (even when we have to bribe her with Frozen dolls and mini pink marshmallows!)
"Sisters are different flowers from the same garden."
Seeing as yesterday was National Sister Day today, I thought it would be fitting to post Maddie and Penny's very first Sister Portrait Session.
9 times out of 10 Maddie loves to get her photo taken and she was in an extra good mood during this session. She did exactly as she was told and was especially excited to hold her baby sister, Penelope, for the very 1st time. Becoming a big sister has been quite an adjustment Madeline who's used to have all of the attention ALL the time but you can tell that she really loves her new little sister. I love to think about the sweet friendship these two sisters will develop over the years and hope that they look back at these photos and hold them close to their hearts.
Happy Sister Day to my 3 older sisters who lovingly accepted me as their baby sis. I adore each of them so much and treasure the times we spend together!
