So… this is Willow’s babysitter. I love her to bits and so does Willow. She asked me to photograph her. My response…. OF COURSE! She is a lively, beautiful spirit, so it was fitting that we chose a location and time that made the most of the gorgeous late-summer sunlight. I wanted to incorporate something sort of whimsical and ethereal for her portraits.. hence, the butterflies. I even got the chance to bring out Mama Cass (my old vintage clunker of a cruiser bike.) (With the front wheel held on by a wire tie… shhh, don’t tell her parents they’d kill me!).
I’ve always seen her as a little girl, but in these photos she looks so grown up! She’s such a beauty, and just as radiant inside as outside.
Audrey Hepburn once said “Happy girls are the prettiest” and she surely makes a case for this statement.
