“There’s a lot of pretty girls in this city, there’s a lot of pretty girls in this town…” Love that song! I just started thinking of it when I began this post because I have had so many beautiful girls from Albert Lea, MN this year! Must be something in the water, as they say.
Lovely Miss Paige here is no exception to the rule. She is simply gorgeous without trying very hard. I couldn’t hardly tell if she had makeup on, she just radiates a natural beauty.
I’ve known Paige and her sister for a while now… ever since I discovered their little boutique in the upstairs of their parent’s furniture store, Brick Furniture.
I was there looking for a mattress for Collin’s big boy bed and I had to just browse around at all the eye candy they have. (I love how they arrange their store, and their window displays always, ALWAYS, catch my eye because Kari picks out some great items.)
Anyhow… in the store there is a loft, they call BG Loft (Brick Girls), where they created a shopping area full of great tops, dresses, scarves, jewelry, and belts that I go ga-ga for every time I visit. They carry a limited supply of each item, which I really like because then you know you’re not going to run into a lot of people with the same thing. (What can I say, I like to be unique!)
But, back to the portraits….
I have so many great options for Paige to use for her yearbook, which was the main focus of the session.
Her mom encouraged her to choose some classic sweaters and then after that, she did a more fun, ivory top. And I have to say, those are my favorites, but I love them all!
Are you ready for a serious dose of sweetness??? I just wanted to warn you because you might get a toothache. These two are just so sweet, I wanted to snuggle with them all day long!
Little Leah has the cutest cheeks, she gets those from her daddy and Emma has the little chin and pouty lips from her mama’s side.
Can you tell them apart? It’s really not that hard.
I just love the pictures of them on the little bed with their matching hats that their mommy brought along.
I am almost glad I didn’t know if I would be photographing boys or girls until the week before, because that would have given me enough time to spend way too much time and money ordering matching girlie things.
But, once I knew they were both girls, I was rifling through all my hats trying to figure out what I had that would coordinate… not that you always have to match with twins… but it’s nice when you’re trying to do a wall collage.
I’d been wanting to try my hand at making flower clips for headbands for a while, so I got out my sewing machine, glue gun, ribbons and fabric scraps and whipped up several coordinating options. (I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself!) 😉
Well, back to work.
