Christine is as cute as a button. While I was trying to put her lash back on in the make up room, I felt like I was doing make up for my daughter. I mean, I technically am old enough to be her mother haha. Today is her 16th birthday!
The first time I met Christine was 2 years ago when I did Thamar's (her older sister) 16th birthday shoot. It's amazing how much she has grown since then! I'm so happy she was able to do a birthday shoot of her own.
Christine made this wild face while pretending to take a bite out of the cake, and it cracked us all up. We were laughing like it was the funniest thing on the planet. But it was so perfectly captured! I promise you--she only made that face for a split second, and I somehow captured it. Shoutout to the Canon R6 for the quick focus. The R6 is a real one.
Thamar's Godfather, Richard, was present and he gave a lot of posing ideas that I appreciated. He had a unique way of getting Christine to exude certain emotions and all I had to do was press the shutter button. Yay team work!
Of course I had to get some beauty shots. There's just so much pink in these photos, and it makes my heart happy. Also, work that face, Christine!
I hope you had an amazing day, Christine! Happy Sweet 16!
