Twins, Basil! Leila, Calie and the whole Burgess Clan
I don’t know what to claim as the coolest part of this dynamic duo-the fact that they are identical twins, or the fact that they are Hawaiian, OR the fact that they are fiercely funny? These girls are JUST amazing.This here is Leila. Leila is fearless, clever and full of sass. She is totally the ringleader in all dealings of mischief. She has a personality that is larger than Grant Park, and a spirit as free as can be. She has energy that stretches to the ends of the earth. Little lady is totally unstoppable. Then there is Calie. Calie is just the sweetest little slice of heaven you will ever meet. She is friendly as they come and a mini little empath. At one point during our shoot, Miss Leila was quite upset. Calie hated seeing her sister that way, so she quietly drifted away and returned later with a flower she picked for Leila. She is full of love, hugs, and kisses all the time, and there is no one that she adores more in this world than her sissy. Calie is heart melting. The two of them together are just the most adorable sight. They want to do whatever each other is doing and be wherever the other one is. Over the course of our shoot, there was laughter, tears, fights, and love. Coming from a house full of sisters myself, I couldn’t help but find great amounts of joy in observing their interactions. There is no better way to spend a summer night than laughing until you fall over into the cool grass next to your sister.
