Junior Prom with my Little Sister

I had the chance a few weekends ago to photograph my beautiful 18-year old sister going to her junior prom. Although she was over an hour late, I got a small window of opportunity to photograph Erica & Austin going to their first prom together. I was a happy big sister that day, as my little sister looked like a fairy-tale princess.

I Heart Faces - Motherhood Photo Challenge

This week over at I Heart Faces is the motherhood photo challenge, and even though I am not a mother, my little sister is a wonderful mommy. She is also great practice for me! She approached me one summer day last year and wanted to have some pictures taken with her son (my nephew) Tristan. This is one of the pictures I framed for her during the holidays. I just love their faces.

Hope on over to iheartfaces.com to check out the other wonderful entries.
