Photographing a family member....

I have always wanted to photograph a family member, yet get turned down all the time by my 4 sisters.  My cousin Amanda (14 years my junior) was in town, I showed her the studio and suggested I take pics of her.  She jumped at the chance and we set up the shoot.

Emily came to do her hair and makeup (did another amazing job) and I brought this little black dress of mine for her to wear.  Since Amanda was traveling, she didn't have heels with her.  We made it work.

Looking at her through the lens I kept seeing me, my youngest sister, my Dad and my uncle.  It was an experience to view your own mannerisms and looks through a member of your family.  I loved photographing Amanda and think she did wonderful!  Hopefully now my sisters will let me get them in front of the camera.... hint..... hint!
