I am absolutely in love with these girls! With their fiery red hair, gentle spirits and hot pink pants, who wouldn’t love em! Jayden is the eldest and I’ve had the pleasure of working with her for a few years now. Kendall is the newest addition to the family and this was her first shoot. She was a pro though and of course she was able to rely on big sis for any tips of the trade.
Our location for this one- the family’s new Manhattan Beach home. It. Was. Gorgeous. And empty. So it served as a great modern/monochromatic backdrop. The kids loved it because due to it’s lack of furniture and appliances, it allowed their imaginations to run wild. Three floors of empty halls and open walls. You couldn’t contain their enthusiasm. They definitely kept me on my toes for this one.
My favorite part?… when mom had the genius idea to bring up this basket and use it as a photo prop. OMG, we played peek-a-boo for a good 15 minutes. We couldn’t get enough. I’ve always said that I get the best workouts on my family portrait days but not just because I run around and play with them, it’s also because I laugh the entire time. Best ab workout ever.
“Sisters don’t need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks – expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs – that can undermine any tale you’re telling.” – Pam Brown
