The Hess Family | sisters

Sometimes you meet people who you just click with, and in the case of Teresa & Corey Hess, it's as if we have walked similar paths leading us to this moment. Teresa and I figured out that we are both from Minnesota, around the same age, and as I imagine it, rolled around the same Minneapolis lakes with our home-girls singing Bone Thugs-N-Harmony or Black Street's No Diggity. (Okay maybe that was just me) But in truth, our husbands worked the same farm job, delivering the same vegetables to the same Minneapolis cafe's, about six years apart. Such an interesting web to find ourselves now living on the relatively remote Whidbey Island.

Teresa recently gave birth to the sweetest little angel baby, Simone Sparrow, who could not be more loved by her two older sisters. It was my goal to capture that love exchange. In fact, the whole family exudes love that is infectious and genuine. And maybe it is because I have a sister who is a huge part of my life, or maybe it is because I have two little girls of my own, but I have a soft spot for sisters. There is nothing like having a sister so share with, steal clothes from, work out insecurities with, or confide in. Sigh. Sisters.

A huge thank you, Teresa, Corey, Rose, Fiona & baby Simone, and big love to you five.
