while in brazil last year, i had the priviledge to shoot my cousin ellen's cute family. ellen is so dear to my heart, we've been "best cousins" since we were 4 or 5 years old. when we were kids, we would write each other letters all year long in anticipation for our summer vacation. i spent every summer of my childhood at my grandfather's farm with my cousins. needless to say, these are the best memories i have of growing up, and ellen is a huge part of them.
every time i go to brazil i stay at ellen's house, she treats me like a queen, takes me around, and fills my cavities for free (she's a dentist) :)
she had felipe in 2008 and he's the sweetest boy ever! i also love her husband lindolpho, he's so chill and laid back.
here are my favorites from the shoot...
and this is her sister evelyn... i'll post pictures of evelyn and her husband soon :)
i love you lenlen, see you in may :)
