ARLINGTON FAMILY SESSION - AVA, ROSA (& LUCY THE PUG)
Ava is the coolest 9-year-old around. Her birthday is on Halloween, and this year she went as Harley Quinn the crazy lady villain from Suicide Squad (her favorite movie.) She loves gymnastics, hide and seek, and wants Chewbacca as a pet. Rosa is the most awesome mom to have created such a smart, creative kid. Lucy is their pug, whose tongue is too long for her mouth, so it ends up just hanging out most of the time. When Rosa reached out to me to do a family shoot, I couldn't have been more excited.
I hung out with Ava after school until Rosa got home from work, and we just explored around the neighborhood, doing cartwheels, climbing anything and everything, and taking Lucy for a walk around the block. When Rosa got home we found some more cool portrait spots around the house, and after all that exhausting smiling and climbing, we skipped dinner and went out to get frozen yogurt.
It's so beautiful to see that special mother-daughter love. I'm so excited to have the opportunity to share these photos with them!
