I love this family to itty bitty bits. Nazzie and Brian have been my friends since college but since they’ve had these two little girls, Ariana and Leila, my love for them has grown deeper. Not long after Leila was born, I headed over to their house with my camera to hang out and ended up with some of my favorite photographs I’ve ever taken. Just them being them.
Nazzie and I had talked about meeting up for some new family portraits and when an opportunity presented itself, we took advantage of it. I often forget how different children are, how curious they can be and how fast they can walk away between sessions. Leila fast reminded me. But even though Nazzie was concerned because all she remembers is chasing after her girls, I was happy to show her what we captured.
