I Was Humming Taylor Swift Songs All the Way Home

Which was appropriate, since this was kind of a “love story” for me.

I had an absolute blast photographing Britney and Brooke last week. These girls know how to have fun. At times I would forget I was there to do a job, and would suddenly want to throw down my camera and belt out tunes with them while spinning in circles or doing double dutch with the jump rope.
This session totally took me back to being nine years old; dancing to my Whitney Houston cassette tapes, playing store in my room (I really was fond of writing receipts), wearing Dr. Pepper lip gloss and practicing the Running Man and the Cabbage Patch Kid (sadly, I never mastered that … it was predicative of my current dance skills … my husband can vouch for that).
A happy tear or two might have escaped on the ride home from this session.
Thank you Britney and Brooke, for inviting me to hang out with you for the afternoon. I had a great time with you girls! I hope you all enjoy the sneak peek from your session … and just so you guys know, I finally uploaded Taylor Swift onto my ipod – thanks to you! 🙂
We started off pretty calm … quiet reading time in the girls’ room, with sweet little Sadie, their new puppy.

Quiet time did not last too long.

“WHO LIKES TAYLOR SWIFT?!” In case you cannot tell, Brooke – on the left – is somewhat of a fan.

We played a little as Taylor’s music blared out the front door …

Brooke loves to write, Britney loves art …

Both girls are so talented musically …

(Favorite part of this photo … the sweet little toes curling in her tights.)

The end.

Wow! They'll definitely need to create a book out of all of these wonderful shots! In addition to all the framed beauties . . . I love the garden shot with the guitar and all the sisterly fun!

Christie, I'm just now going on your blog for the first time (no clue why I waited all this time) and am blown away by the depth of your photos! These are some of my favorite shots. You really have a creative eye and know how to think out of the box (I know that sounds kinda cheesy, but you get what I'm trying to say) -Kimmy
