    Leida and Laelle, 9, are Haitian twins sisters, currently living in Brazil.I became their friend while I was shooting an Haitian wedding. This portrait was taken in the front of their house's wall. As they are very connected to each other, dreaming and making plans for the future together, I asked them to tell through thoughts what is the most appreciate characterisct that they admire in each other. So, while they were doing the toughts transmission I captured their expression.

    I agree completely with Tom Jacob, "Such a great portrait moment, and I love the touch of holding hands." The subtle detail of having the girls touch hands adds an intimate moment between the sisters. Well done, I'm looking forward to more in their series!
