This session was more of a soul session than a shoot. I love when that happens. That rare magic of having 2 little girls walk through the door, shy & not sure they’re really into having their picture taken, and after an hour of twirling, giggling & running through a sun drenched field, we can’t help but end the shoot with a group hug & high fives all around. That’s what this job is all about for me…connection. Capturing the connection that exists between the people in front of my lens, and creating a connection with them in the process. Lila & Mirielle are such beauties. They’re the perfect combination of silly & sweet..being with them is like opening a giant bottle of sunshine. As I watched them running through the field, all elbows & knees, it reminded me of the carefree, dizzy fun of being 9 years old. Childhood is such a precious blink of life, I hope these images give you glimpse into the girly sweetness of Lila & Mirielle…

  1. My cheeks hurt from smiling…once again. You surely did capture the fun of this day. Love what you said about capturing the connection. You absolutely do that in every single one of your photos. That’s so important and it’s most definitely a gift and a special skill from the photographer. You were born to do this. These shots actually made me able to escape this mound of papers on my desk and feel like I was actually out there in that field. Beautiful work Kellie.
