Kristin and Kayla: A Tale of Two Sisters


The new year is a good occasion to make promises and look towards better times ahead. It's an even a better occasion to look back at the past and see how much you've accomplished since then. Photographer Jason Lee won't have a problem with the latter as he's recorded almost every moment of his two proudest achievements, his two daughters Kristin and Kayla, through an ingenious photoblog, the tale of these two happy sisters.



Jason Lee is a professional wedding photographer but he has become more famous because of his photoblog detailing the accomplishments of his his young daughters. While other photographers (and dads and moms in general) are content with posting each and every picture of their kids, Lee took it up a notch and created fantastical worlds for his two daughters through the lens of his camera.

Thus, you might find Kristin and Kayla dressed up in Angry Birds costumes and re-enacting  their favorite level one day, and then see them playing the role of Little Red Riding Hood chasing away the Big Bad Wolf another day.



Lee began his photoblog in 2006 when his youngest daughter was still a baby. He mentions that he initially intended the blog as a way to capture the lives of his daughters for the benefit of his mother who couldn't visit them often. Five years later, his short blog has grown into an inspirational website featuring the lives of two amazing young ladies.


Not all photographs are as wacky and quirky as these few selected images. Sometimes, there are pictures taken on Kristin and Kayla's first day of school or dance class, or just ordinary days when Lee's girls are just having fun and enjoying life.

While his crazy ideas are fun to look at (and probably a hundred times more fun to create in the first place), even the reflective moments when the young ones are all quiet can have an equally powerful impact.


There are more wonderful tales of these two sisters over at their blog, Kristin and Kayla. Jason Lee's professional website is here.
