Last year I was photographing two of my good friends who happen to be twin sisters and noticed there was something special about the resulting images. I saw a beautiful dynamic between two siblings and a uniquely feminine sensibility. The photographs in this project portray the dimensions of sisterhood through the observation of sisters in their natural environments. These images capture the distinct personalities of each set of sisters and how they harmonize to create special bonds. I documented moments in private spaces like their bedrooms, where they cuddle in one bed even though they each have their own; their backyards, where they spend time thinking alone or having fun together; or their living rooms, where they share laughs with their Yorkie puppy. This body of work reveals that sisters share a bond unlike any other.
