Galilea and Lupita are the best friends and they were just the cutest friends. When Galilea called me, I could hear her excitement through the phone and when they showed up for the session they were both so excited it actually woke me up. I love it when people are excited about what I am so excited about everyday! They were just awesome and so wonderful to photograph.
Galilea has such a wonderful attitude. So often teenagers are so self conscious and reality just seems cruel. But Galilea was very confident and apparently very hard to embarrass. She fell in the water and I felt so bad, but she got up and brushed herself off and on we went. Later on she laughed about it and I was so relieved! Personally, I think I would have been mortified and had a hard time recovering from it.
Lupita was very sweet and kind (especially to Galilea after the water incident.) She was so eager to get started. She said she wanted to pose on a rock across the water and as I was thinking of the easiest way for her to get there, she not only got there, but posed herself and was ready before I knew what happened! Such fun!
I love these pictures in front of the waterfall!
Here they are with another one of their amazing friends! She was such a great help and such a great person to help out as much as she did! I love that the three of them were so helpful and kind to each other!
