Lea, the youngest daughter, recently celebrated her birthday. But that’s not the only reason why we did this family photoshoot! At that time, Lea was also spending her final weeks back home before leaving for New York to join a convent! I admire her so much for making such a big decision at such a young age.
Mikhaela, the second daughter, is an incredibly talented hair stylist and make-up artist at Salon Blue. I’ve actually known her and the family since elementary school, so the photoshoot was also an excellent opportunity to catch up with everyone.
I had such an incredible time taking photos of this family! I honestly wish you were with me during the shoot because it was so beautiful to see all the love and encouragement that they had for each other. During the shoot it became obvious to me that Lea was meant to become a nun, so she could be a blessing to the less fortunate in the same way that each family member is a blessing to the family as a whole.
This was the family’s first photoshoot ever and one of the last times that Lea would be photographed in “regular clothes” before she wears her nun’s habit. They are a gorgeous family and I look forward to hearing about Lea’s progress in New York.
