MY LITTLE SWEETS
My two little sweets. This is where my heart resides, my inspiration.
Sylist:Penélope Elizabeth (I had all sorts of ideas, but on her own she came up with this and it was so much better than my ideas)
Outfits: There’s nothing wrong with thrift store finds, hand-me-downs and things already in one’s closet! (G’s yellow skirt was new from Target.) Next time Penélope will be directing the whole thing again and save me a whole lot of mula.
We walked through a field by Bush Lake and I simply followed them around. This is my most favorite way to shoot: minimal direction, being fully present in the moment through my lens. That beautiful moment came to an unannounced halt 14min into it when Baby G saw the playground. Without any hesitation, she turned around, walked down the hill and didn’t even look back.

Miss Penélope caught up to Miss Geneviève and I frantically ran down ahead of them like a fumbling idiot and caught a couple more shots. By this time the light was golden.
Even though Baby G was prancing down the sidewalk toward the park, I couldn’t resist another shot of Penélope since she was with me having long been abandoned by her baby sister.
We played in the playground and the sun had just set. The light was so perfectly warm and diffused that I asked Penélope for two more minutes. This is what she gave me. Am I lucky or what?
She couldn’t contain herself and she burst out laughing.
And blew me a kiss.
We went home.
I needed more G time, so a couple days later we went back in full sun. This photo shoot lasted a full non-consecutive 1min and a handful of seconds.
I even tried the old snack trick.
But you see, her life is so much more interesting than silly picture taking. (Notice Miss Curious’ bruise on her forehead)
Different shoes this time around since in her haste she lost her sparkly one on the hillside which I never did find.
My Joys. My Loves.
