Harris&Epley|Family Portrait Session|Morganton, NC

So… Jessie and my daughter, Grace, met in 6th grade in middle school and became friends.  I remember Jessie’s mom, Melanie, calling to invite Grace to Jessie’s birthday party.  In talking, we figured out that I knew Melanie’s sister, Shanda. I used to work with Shanda at a day care when I was 18! I remember when she and Russ started dating.   Shanda married Russ and now they have two beautiful daughters, Lillie and Caroline. Ok,  I know that was a lot of information… and I promise I am going somewhere with this so, bear with me.  Melanie contacted me a few months ago wanting to do a portrait session of Jessie.  She also wanted to bring Shanda’s family along to do some pictures of all 3 girls together.  They wanted to re-create a picture of the girls from years ago.  A picture of all 3 cousins in a tree.(shown below)


This is the photo we were trying to re create. From Left to Right: Lillie, Caroline, Jessie.
