It’s always such a joy when I have the chance to photograph close friends and family. For this session, these beautiful girls and their parents have been close family friends for many years, and I am amazed by how much they have grown since the last time I saw them. Bela and Dakota are twins, and they are two of the sweetest young ladies I have ever met. Their godmother gifted this unicorn-themed mini session to them, and we allhad a blast with it.
At the beginning of the session, both girls were just a little shy to be in front of the camera, but it didn’t take long for them to warm up and start having some fun. The donned their cute pink and purple tutus, unicorn headbands, and plenty of sparkles and started to dance. I loved having the two of them together for this session because they played off of each other, adding an extra confidence boost. It was so great to really see their individual personalities shine through. They might be twins, but each girl has her own style and flair. Watching them dance made me want to get out on the floor and join them!
Both girls loved twirling together, and I was able to get some great shots of them clasping hands and spinning in circles – so cute! But I think their favorite parts of the session were the glitter shots. They filled their hands with glitter, and on the count of three I had them blow it toward the camera. It was awesome!
I know that their parents and godmother will love these photos, but I also know that these close sisters will be thankful to have documentation of their younger years together. When they are both thirty years old, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that each one of them still keeps a framed photo of these sweet moments together!
