As promised here are a couple more images from the portrait shoot in San Diego. After getting the images of Adil, his amazing sister, Asiya, walked into the room, and I pounced on the opportunity. Asiya has a very graceful air to her, and - as I had just learned from the family portrait - is a natural at posing. (Check out the blog post about the family portrait - her comfortable pose on the right edge of frame is a total anchor for the photo.)
When Asiya joined her brother for these shots, she instinctively sat down with her back to him - and leaned against him. To be honest, I might never have thought to pose her that way, but it was completely perfect. It created an immediate connection between the two, while simultaneously conveying their closeness.
