This is the blog post in which I admit that I approached these gorgeous girls’ Mama about photographing them. I never do that! People generally come to me, that’s how this thing works. It helped that their Mama, Tierra, and I had already been chatting, and she has such a friendly, kind and approachable vibe. I later learned she is a Doula, which made perfect sense! She possesses all the qualities I would want in a Doula.
Anyway, back to these beauties. Tierra graciously agreed to allow me to photograph the girls for a shoot I’d been dreaming up for a while, we chose the Arboretum as the location, and loose curls and white dresses. Alayah was so sweet, and mothering to her younger sister, definitely an old and gentle soul behind those beautiful eyes, and Jaela is spirited, temperamental (as all 4 year olds are!) and ridiculously cute.
Tierra, Alayah and Jaela, thank you for the honor of photographing you!
