My mom has a big family...I have 5 aunts and uncles. The youngest one, Cristina, is almost my age. Growing up we were like sisters since we lived with my grandparents for many years after my parents divorced.
In the last years she has discovered a new passion: belly dancing. It was weird to me when she first started to belly dance, since she never was interested in dancing growing up. However, this last June I saw her in action and was quite impressed. She is not just good, but she loves it so much it radiates excitement and happiness when she is performing. It makes me so happy to see her reinventing herself at our age and discovering a new strength. She just loves it and her eyes sparkle when she talks about it.
My brother and I had a photo shoot with her that showcased this new talent. It was so fun to work with my brother and to experiment with a type of photography I had never done. I think the images came out great and I am quite proud of them. For full gallery go here.
Here are my favorites:
Titi, I hope you love your photos. I think you looks gorgeous!...enjoy
