Continuing on from my first post, here are the rest of my favorite portraits from my recent trip to see family.
K is almost 13, and is always a patient and natural model for me. I barely have to instruct her, she just changes her pose naturally and holds for a photo.
Just a snapshot of her using her phone, but I thought it turned out prettily.
Next is L, age 14 and looking suddenly so grown up. Don't you love her glasses?
I wanted to take some with L and K together because I have so many of the two of them when they were young. I wanted comparison shots. Look at those girls--they're almost the same height, both over 5'7!! In our family, that's very tall.
For a little comparison, here they are in 2006.
Then I wanted photos of K with N, because they had matchy-match dresses on (actually, all three of the older girls had very similar dresses). This was one of those situations where K was kind of annoyed at the matching dresses, but little N was proud to be matching her big sister. I love how N's like a mini-K in these.
K made sure to point out that her dress had a striped pattern underneath and N's doesn't. So they're not quite identical.
Another family picture of my sister and her girls. E had just woken up and was not super thrilled about picture time, so I didn't push to get a perfect smiling photo. We just let her have her lollipop.
