“It doesn’t happen all at once,” he said. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Watching these two girls become young women is a privilege. In our 20 minute sesisons there are about a hundred things they do that are just plain cute. I imagine spending the day with them would be much the same. They are sweet and charming, complex and unique… as all daughters can be. I was thrilled to photograph them once again. Thank you C family for coming my way.
