Twin Senior 2016 Shoot

I photographed my first set of twin senior girls last week and they were so cute together! They were so sweet with each other especially when we did their sister shots together. They giggled together, held hands with out me asking them to and just hugged on each other. I might've over stepped my boundaries when I asked them to go nose to nose. It took them awhile to get there plus had a lot of laughing involved but made for some cute shots. Seeing their relationship, reminds me of me and my sister's relationship. While we may not have been that close in high school, we grew much closer in college when my big sis who was a junior took me under her wing when I was a freshman and showed me "the ropes" at Mizzou. We even signed up to take Geology together! Ha! We had our large lecture class together and then we signed up to have our lab together, too. That way we saw each other every day for class and then were able to study together for exams. Having that time together when we didn't have our small town friends around us to lean on helped our sister bond grow. When my sister graduated with a fashion journalism degree, she decided to go study at the Paris Fashion Institute for several months so we knew we wouldn't see each other for a long time and I will never forget that good bye. This was back in the day when you could actually walk your family and friends to their gate at the airport. Right before my sis loaded the plane I gave her a journal that I had started with entries and photos in it and then I wanted her to write about her European adventures in it and share it with me later. We both boo hooed like the biggest babies at the gate and could barely let go of each other. Life takes us on interesting journeys and it's always more fun to take those life journeys with your sister! These twins have many life journeys ahead of them and I'm sure they'll have fun doing them together.

Here's a shot of the journal I gave my sister to take to Paris and when she brought it back to me she had filled the entire journal with all her adventures
