In 1999, we started photographing the Gudex and Reich kids. I painted a background that went with the dress that all the girls wore as the years went by (the dress not the background). Last year we photographed the last of the kids, this time a boy. (No he didn't wear the dress.)
Anyway, Mali, the first girl in the family, is a junior this year. I sure hope we get to photograph her senior portraits. I think it would be a kick to photograph them all as seniors with the same background too (assuming I don't kick the bucket by the time the last little boy turns 17.
Mali came over today as a response to an offer to juniors to do a quick, free session in the apple blossoms.
So was Mali cuter as a kid or is she prettier as a teenager? I say its a tie!
(Oh, and sorry about that last one.)
