These beautiful women are my mom and sister. I took these during a short vacation trip to AZ earlier this month and it was a blast to do. My sister is the mom to my 4 year old nephew and he is one the cutest kids I have ever seen! I may be a bit partial though 🙂 She is a wife, full time worker, cleaning goddess, chauffeur, etc and I wanted to give her a few images that she could enjoy for years to come as well as pictures to give her son as portraits are a timeless capsule that are cherished for a lifetime. Our children need to see us and hold portraits of us. It is so easy to get lost in our daily lives and to not take the time to let our beauty shine. She is guilty of doing just the same thing. She has never been a makeup girl and tended to be more on the tomboy vs me who was the girly girl so I was tickled pink when she agreed to letting me do a quick makeover of her and have this mini photo session. While doing the shoot I showed her only a couple of images off the back of my camera and she said she couldn’t believe how beautiful she was. What a light bulb moment I think it was for her. She saw what we have all seen for years. She saw her beauty shine! Please don’t think it was simply the hair and makeup that makes her beautiful but it was an amazing transformation for her to see it too.
My mom also allowed me the chance to do a quick makeover on her as well again (you can look back at my previous blog to read more about my awesome mom). We laughed so much while doing this and I really wish I could see them more than once a year but it was an amazing time.
Love you both!
