Lola & Mick

This twosome came in front of my lens for some El Corazon photography recently. The expressions I was able to capture between the two were simply divine. Incorporating animals into portraits adds such an evocative element when it's done right. Ten year old Lola is just on that cusp between child and teen - it's a tender and powerful time. With her grandmother and mom giving her support, ideas and hairstyling Lola had this fabulous opportunity to collaborate on costumes, masks and hairstyles. Almost like a dress-up play date with some of her favorite women on the planet. It was terrifically fun.
