Portraits of Kelly and Auntie Boho

I am swimming in Kelly goodness. She's a wise soul at the age of 16. I love that my nieces are my close friends. They are kindred spirits that I can laugh with, philosophize with and get a bit sassy with.

Let's see...so far we've swam far out into the ocean and dove under big waves for a few hours. We've shopped loads of vintage boutiques, talked of our dreams of traveling the world at an Italian cafe, picked up some art supplies, made a necklace to adorn her neck, and tried some daring cuisine.

Wanted to share the love:

Here are a few of the many pictures I took during a photo shoot with candlelight. She is so natural in front of the camera:

Your photography is so awesome. The colors, contrast, everything is meticulously put together.

So glad you could enjoy such an awesome time with your niece. She looks very happy with her auntie too!!

I agree with the discussion of the photography above! One reason why I visit your blog is to see what you have managed to draw out of yourself in the portraits. Today, the extra bonus of watching what you can do with a separate subject from the other side of the lens. Beautifully done--so much mood and power, even in the candids! Your niece is a lovely girl...

You two look like you are having such fun! My favorite times were visiting with my aunties. My first roomate was actually one of my aunts:)
The portraits are beautiful too! She is breathtaking in the black and white one especially.
