Mommy's Best Friend

When I arrived to photograph these (adorable) sisters, they asked me if I was their mommy's best friend... I didn't quite know how to answer this question -- do I lie?  Crush their dreams?  I started to (I thought) delicately tell the truth, which was that I was their mommy's good friend, but that I believed her best friend was (insert name here), but then their dad jumped in with "five year olds have, like, ten best friends... just say "yes"..."  The real truth is, I've known their mom since we were kids.  We used to vacation together and play at our swim club together, and I believe they had a doctor's kit at their house that her older brother (who was my age) and I would play with together.  So all that said, it is such a joy to photograph this family, again and again, and watch these girls grow... We had a fun morning at the park, and a lot of laughs...
