sister portraits in the snow

sometimes photos explain wrinkled-nose smiles better than words do.  sometimes ten minutes in the falling snow means more than "i love you", no, it means "i care about you","i want to spend time with you", and"i want to capture you the way i see you, full of life and innocence and joy."  sometimes sisters look so beautiful in the beginnings of four inches of snow that you have to let the flakes melt on your camera, have to let your hair get soaked, have to capture what you see.
