I don't often photograph seniors...

In fact, I usually refer them to other amazing senior photographers in the area...

ut when you've been photographing a family for a long time, you make exceptions. :)

I photographed Brooke and Melinda's older brother, Nath, in 2013... and apparently his little sister twins have been excited about their turn ever since!

Nath, Brooke, and Melinda's parents are from Sri Lanka, which is just a hop, skip, and a jump from India! (Where my awesome father-in-law is from!)

We had a lovely and rich conversation about culture, tradition, multi-cultural marriages, and traveling. 

Both these girls are already world travelers - having been back to Sri Lanka many times with their family. So jealous!

And of course, in beautiful Asian fashion...

They even invited me over for dinner. :)

Brooke and Melinda, I was so bummed when we couldn't do dinner together with your family! Next time Sunil and I are up, we'd love to hang out with you. :) Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your beautiful faces and I can't wait for all the exciting things that are in your bright futures!
