Twirly at Two: Raleigh Children's Photographer

We all know I'm a sucker for matching kids outfits so when these two pretty girls popped out of their car and into their sweet smocked, monogrammed dresses my heart started to smile. While I complain about boys clothes often, and find myself swooning in the girls sections of clothing stores, I do love that I have two boys close enough in age to still dress alike. So when I get to photograph matching siblings, I do really enjoy it! I don't usually advocate matching for family sessions, but sessions for birthdays and kids only...bring it on!

We fretted off and on all day about the session and whether or not the weather would cooperate. It did, and as a bonus we had practically the whole park to ourselves. What a treat. I spent the better part of an hour chasing these happy girls around the fields and barns, watching them twirl and dance and play. It was magic and my favorite type of session to shoot. Often my favorite types of pictures are the ones where kids are just being kids. Is there anything better?

Having big sister there was such fun too!

And the eyelashes on these two....I die.
