It starts the minute I walk through the door. Every year, it never fails. I walk through the front door and before I can even give Rich and Melissa a proper hug, I am swept away by these two darling little girls who melt my heart. Sometimes it's quite literal, as the girls grab my hands and pull me into the living room to show me a new toy or their new favorite show. Other times, they're a little more on the shy side and so they simply sweep me away with a smile.
Either way, I know that every fall as I head down to Chesterbrook, I'm in for one of my favorite sessions.
It's hard to believe I've been photographing these beauties since older sister, Sophia was just 9 months old and sweet little Olivia was still "in the land of dreams" (as my dad always used to say).
Every year they get more and more darling, more and more beautiful.
I already cannot wait until next fall!
Keep smiling, pretty girls!
