I never get tired of photographing this crew. These girls are so sassy AND sweet- and getting to photograph them year after year has been such a treasure because their personalities are so different and both so much fun. Plus, their parents are pretty cool, too.
I love the way Jessica (my awesome and talented hairstylist) styled everyone this year- both girls have their nicknames on their shirts. Jessica's grandmother passed away this year and she wanted to honor her by taking a few photos with a framed photograph of her grandmother rocking an amazing beehive- the coolest! I thought it was a great idea. We also did a throwback to her grandmother's time when kids played with tin can phones- can't believe they really work!
Thank you, Cortez family, for being awesome and for a great shoot!
