Ava and Harper

Meet Ava and Harper, two of my newest buddies, and join me as I relive the awesome adventure it was hanging out with them. Ava is 5, sassy, playful and the most dramatic 5 year old I have ever met, and I mean that in the best way possible. Harper is 2, sweet, silly, and LOVES to dance. Harper was initially frightened of this strange person who showed up taking pictures of her (me), but, she warmed up to me shortly and I was known to her not as Nicole but “Conan” ;)  Crystal and Nick are amazing parents! All day I watched them nurture their girls’ individuality, provide them with tons of experiences, and simply let them enjoy being kids (with rules of course).  I hope to show all families that they don't need to coordinate clothes and pretend they are always smiling and happy to make beautiful photographs of their life. There are so many social pressures to be perfect all the time, we forget that the way we are right now is as perfect as it is going to get. Strip away the guilt and just be yourself. The real you is the one that your children will want to remember forever. These girls will always have a special place in my heart and I’m so excited to watch their personalities develop and to document many more memories along the way.
