Heidi warned me that Lily might not talk much and not to be offended. And at first, she was pretty quiet. Except in the car between locations – according to Heidi, Lily was talking non-stop. In a British accent! She never did share her brilliant accent with me, but Lily must have known how much I adored her because it didn’t take long for her to warm up & talk to me! She reminds me of my little 4 year old girl – they’re both the youngest of four and the only girl in a land full of brothers. Kierstyn won’t talk to anyone at first, either! I hope she develops a British accent one day.
I have to thank Heidi – she saved me from disaster as I backed a truck up and almost hit a utility box. She had my back!
When Heidi and Lily arrived, they went right into the hair and makeup room to get all dolled up. That was the beginning of our amazing mother-daughter journey. They shared so many beautiful moments together, one of which is this black and white image captured as we were winding the session down.
They way they laugh together is contagious. It always takes me a few tries to get a good jumping shot. “It’s just not coming together” was Lily’s input on the experience. When that girl talks, she’s hilarious! She had me doubled over!
Those golden locks and luscious waves atop beautiful faces are just the icing on the cake. Heidi and Lily are one-of-a-kind and full of kindness, love and generosity. It was my pleasure to work with these two – they were up for ANYTHING! Hiking in flip-flops, standing barefoot in the frozen sand, sitting in the midst of hay, climbing towers – it was an adventure I won’t soon forget and I hope they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives.
