Having a sister or brother means being born with friends. Sure, siblings know how to push each others buttons and there are bound to be fights, but no one else can understand a person or her history the way a sibling can. Rachel, Alex, and Marissa are prime examples of siblings who are also friends and I had the pleasure of photographing them this week. All three of them are kind, funny, intelligent, and gorgeous. I loved watching the dynamics between them ... they have a million inside jokes, love to rough house, and are always looking out for each other. From Alex warning Rachel not to sit on a thorny bush to Rachel fixing Marissa's hair without being asked ... the love emanating from them was so clear! Especially evident was the way Rachel and Alex feel about their little sister, Marissa. They way they look at her and watch out for her ... you can just tell how much they adore her. Rachel, Alex, and Marissa - thank you for being so easy going and fun to photograph. Thank you also for loving one another so much! You are very inspiring and I hope someday my children will love each other as much as you do. I hope you enjoy your pictures!
Umm ... I am pretty sure I was no where near this beautiful at 11 years old!
Rachel, you are gorgeous!
Rachel giving Alex bunny ears and Rachel laughing hysterically at herself. :)
Alex was a crack up and kept sitting on Marissa! That's what older brothers are supposed to do though, right? :)
