Belle & Piper

This marks my fifth total session with these chicas over the years, starting in 2012 when we all lived in California and they were just wee little lasses and stretching to now, when we meet up to shoot photos as often as we can when they’re back in the midwest. It’s so fun to look back and see how much they have grown, and also SO crazy to look back at how my photography has changed (and improved) over the past seven years. For this session, it was just us girls, hanging out at Ritter Farm Park in the southern Twin Cities. The loving dynamic between these two is as strong as ever, if not mixed with a bit more wrestling (lots of noogies and upside down dangling) and little-sister-constantly-annoying-older-sister-ness. Oh, and racing. Lots of racing. And dancing; I learned what the dab is, and I think the fact that I had never heard of it before makes me officially old. And man, can these girls make each other laugh. You’re both the cutest. It was so wonderful to see you 💕
