When my friend Kara contacted me about doing a last minute photo session fro her daughter’s, I was so glad I was available. I’ve seen how stunning they were on Facebook, but knowing Kara, I knew they’d be sweet too. See, I’ve known Kara since elementary school. She was always one of the nicest people I’ve ever known. Her and her family live out of state now, but she was going to be visiting her family, most of whom still live on Long Island. After we messaged about the session, she then asked if we could change the session to include her nieces and nephews, as a gift to her mom. So we wound up doing two session, back-to-back. First we did the cousins, her mom and sister and brother’s families and then we did a session of just her and her girls.
We were SO lucky we had an insanely gorgeous day the day of the sessions. It was warm, but not humid (a rarity for Long Island summers) and we had beautiful skies during the big family session and one of the most incredible sunsets I’ve ever seen in my life during her and her daughters’ part of the session! And I was right, Kara’s daughters were two of the smartest, most beautiful, sweetest and funniest girls I have met in a long time. I had so much fun hanging out with them and getting to know them. And best of all, I got to re-connect and catch up with an old friend. I love how this job brings people back into my life over and over again.
I loved that both of these girls were completely comfortable in front of the camera. They were excellent models:
