I was lucky enough to have Carla and Natalia find me on Facebook and ask me to do a model shoot for them. Two beautiful sisters The Gonzalez Girls were amazing to work with – smart, funny and willing to try anything for a great photo. They have since moved farther south and I will miss them – Thank you both for such a fun shoot!
I asked Carla to tell me a little about herself and her sister:
Carla is 15 and is Sophomore Class President at Winter Springs High School. She is Cuban-American and born in Miami before moving to Winter Springs, FL. She has 3 younger sisters and enjoys doing community service. Carla is a leading team captain for the annual Winter Springs Relay for Life. She is on the girl's varsity golf team and is very outgoing. Carla is an outstanding student, taking part in many clubs at her school.
Natalia is 14 and like Carla, she is in student government and also services the community as a Relay for Life team captain. Born and raised alongside her older sister, she has always matched Carla in academics and club activities, yet she plays lacrosse rather than golf.
Carla and Natalia have been modeling for a little over a year. A friend introduced these sisters into modeling. They began modeling as a pair because of their similar appearances and eagerness to help each other learn to pose. They are not only Irish twins, but also best friends.
Carla and Natalia love to model because they love seeing themselves change in front of the camera . The two fancy the artistic aspect of modeling. Carla and Natalia both enjoy photography and the collaboration of creative ideas that go along with every shoot they do. They use modeling as an outlet to express themselves.
Carla and Natalia are always looking for new photographers to meet and work with. That so happens to be why they discovered Kelly Canova Photography on Facebook. The sisters hope to be in print one day! They look forward to showing girls that you don't have to be the perfect stereotypical model figure to get into modeling.
