I first met Mandy at Effie’s Bachelorette Party photo shoot. She said she had so much fun and wanted to do another shoot with her family. It had been years since a family photo was taken – tsk, tsk! ha! Last minute we added in her sister and her nephew. One of the things I love about Harkness is the variety of settings…beach, gardens, trees, bricks, stairs, cool buildings…the options are endless. We wandered all over the park – they were troopers for sure. Silas wasn’t sure he wanted to cooperate but we made him play anyway! And Amelie was just like a little model…and so fashionable with her leopard print shoes. I really want to get myself a pair. I think Silas and Amelie definitely look like they could be siblings…they’re not. They are cousins and best friends. Speaking of best friends, it was fun for me to watch the relationship between sisters Mandy and Krista…I sure hope that someday my girls will will have a relationship like theirs!
