Meet the Gierke girls and their mom Tracey. You might recognize Ashten from her engagement shoot a couple months ago. I had so much positive feedback from that shoot, and it probably has less to do with me as a photographer, and more to do with her. She is gorgeous, very photogenic, and wonderfully stylish. Well...it is obvious to see that her mom and sisters are just that as well.
I love photographing sisters. Probably because I have such a close relationship with my own sister. I just recently came across this quote, and it seems fitting for this post.
"A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double." ~Toni Morrison
This stands very true for Carley and myself. We are so much the same in so many ways, but we are also complete opposites in others. I am a creative type, Car is a bit of a nerd. Carley is more of an extrovert, where as I can be a bit timid. She is the more athletic one, whereas I was a cheerleader and golfer. It always amazes me that this is the case, but I suspect it is our differences that make us best friends. We are different pieces of the same puzzle.
I assume it is similar with these girls. Even in just the short time I spent with them, I could see how alike they are, but they are all uniquely different as well.
I could continue rambling....but it is Friday night and my poor puppy has patiently been waiting for some attention all day, I have a wedding tomorrow to prep for, and I could use a little down time. Enjoy your sneak peek girls. I had a blast shooting you!
I love the one below. Definitely a favorite!
Such pretty girls...makes my job easy :)
These would all make wonderful Christmas card photos...Yes I know it is only September, but it is a good idea to book your session now, before the snow falls!
