“Family and Not”
by Susan (Rosin) Hembree.
These three beautiful girls are my two nieces (1st two on the left), Natalie and Kailyn, and their friend, Caroline. Caroline has known my nieces since they were babies and so is almost like another sister to them--so she is NOT really family, but is. They all get along so well and really are best friends to each other. For this, the girls played dress up and then wanted to do a photo shoot, which I had no problems complying with. Another note: my nieces are gymnasts (since being toddlers) and have competed at the National level several times. They are very, very good!
