Often it comes knocking at the strangest moments, but, for whatever reason, it's been a perpetual visitor lately. Perhaps it's the approach of a milestone birthday or the bittersweet pleasure of watching my own kids grow, knowing time is moving forward, regardless, stopping for nothing.
One of my very favorite childhood memories is frequenting the carpet wall-covered skating rinks that used to pepper our region-- many of which, have since been torn down or converted into different spaces. Lucky for us, we still have an incredible roller rink relic nearby and my daughters get to experience it regularly, in all its terrible snack bar glory. :-) It seems the rollerskating culture has had a resurgence in recent times and, so, it seemed like a perfect way to commemorate my sweet girls' annual birthday shoot. It's no mystery that my girls and I love color and live colorfully whenever possible; hence, rollerskating + graffiti + bubblegum + a retro-rainbow wardrobe= a perfect storm for a shoot.
These are my Rollerbabes. :)
