I had a blast over the weekend with my two cousins - Hannah and Becca. They stopped over at my home studio for some headshots as well as some "drama" lighting test shots by my request. I got some really great shots...with a few outtakes of course! And even I got in on the action with a few headshots of my own! (Thanks, Hannah!)
I remember the day Hannah was born...it was a hot August summer day. Her and I are about 8 years apart in age. I used to babysit her and her brother Mo in the summer...we used to do goofy things like make cassette tape-recorded soap opera shows, and play "store" - and one time, believe it or not, I had Hannah and Mo do a nerdy little photoshoot for me when I was babysitting them, along with my baby brother Barney at the time! Mind you this was like 1986-87...who knew the foreshadowing of a passion of photography would be rekindled for me in my later days!
[editors note: Hannah's mom - my aunt Fran, used to use me as her photo subjects when she was taking photography classes in college! Hannah also studied photography and has been my second shooter a few times!]
It was always so much fun to tell people growing up that Hannah and Becca's mom (my aunt) is my mom's younger sister, and she married my dad's older brother. A special bond between families if you may! I have always loved genetics. I can also remember the first time I had met Becca shortly after she was born. "A porcelain doll," I told my aunt. Yet so similar to how Hannah looked when she was little! And when you put all of the "girl" cousins together - we all look alike! Both of these gals have grown up to become beautiful young ladies!
The one on the bottom right has that porcelain look to it, just as I remember Becca when she was a baby. Love it! Overall it was fun to spend time with family while working. Thank you, ladies for coming out! Let's do it again sometime soon! Love you guys!
