Pink Flowers and Little Sisters

The other day when we had our little Labor Day adventure I did a rather cute photoshoot with my little sister Carmen, if I do say so myself. 🙂 I just love how the pictures turned out, and I can’t wait to show you guys!

When I saw all the pretty pink smartweed flowers, I knew they were just begging to be in a photoshoot. Heh heh. I asked Carmen if I could take pictures of her and after a few tries she reluctantly agreed… and then once we got started she didn’t want to stop. XD If you love photography and have siblings, especially younger siblings, a photoshoot is a really fun thing to do with them!

Ahem. And now for the pictures (and there are a LOT). XD

Aww, isn’t this so cute?

“Oh, Carmen, you look creepy!”

*laughs* “Yeah, I meant to.”

So cute! ♥

I took a lot of pictures with Carmen in the background because I thought the lighting and bokeh made it look lovely. 🙂

Oh my goodness, isn’t the setting perfect for these? The lighting… the flowers… ahh!

Carmen found a hollow stump and wanted me to take pictures of her in it.

HA HA! This one’s one of my favorites. XD She just looks so relaxed and nonchalant. I don’t think she even knew her feet were that dirty. XD

It looks like she’s in a wooden bathtub or something. 😛

Okay, now these next few pictures are some of my favorites from the shoot!

I LOVE this one!

Dirt on her knee and a grin on her face. 🙂

I LOVE THIS ONE! Isn’t it so fun when you can capture a moment of genuine, candid laughter?

“Allison, you should take a picture of me bending down, like I’m finding something on the ground.”

DSC_2179 (853x1280)

Ha ha, so she wanted me to take a picture of her on that long, horizontal limb in the last picture, and I agreed. But we had quite the struggle to get her up there. XD I hung my camera on a branch and tried boosting her up, then letting her climb on top of me, and after several tries and much laughter we finally succeeded. XD

I forget if Carmen or I had the idea for these next pictures… I think it was me. Anyway, they turned out so cute!

She was a bit uncertain of how to pose without jabbing herself on the barbed wire fence, but she figured it out. 😉

And we shall end with another of my favorites:

There we go! I hope you had as much fun looking through the pictures as I did taking them. 🙂 Which was your favorite (if you have one)? Have you ever done a photoshoot with a younger sibling? This one was quite fun and if I started to run out of ideas, Carmen gave me an ample supply. XD

Thanks for reading, my dears, and have a lovely day!

      Yayyyy, I’m so happy you like them! Yep, she is a great model – she takes it very seriously and thinks of poses she could do herself. XD Ha ha! Well Carmen did that too, sometimes. XD

      1. No problem! Yes! You guys look more alike to me then I look like my brother, and everyone says we look like twins (I dont see it though) 😊


  4. Oh my gumdrops Carmen is the CUTEST LITTLE GIRL EVER!!! 😀 I LOVED this photoshoot, she looks like a fun and happy little sister! She resembles Megan a bit, did Megan look like her when she was little? 😉

    I’ve never done a photoshoot a with younger sibling since I don’t have any little siblings, haha! 😦 I loved all the pictures, but especially the ones of her in the big wooden “bathtub” (it really looked like one) and on the big tree limb! 😀

    1. HA HA! XD Yes, it was so fun! 😀 Well she is sometimes more than others, of course. 😉 Yeah, actually Megan and her looked a lot alike when they were little, but they don’t look as much like each other now.
      Ha ha, well that would make it difficult, I suppose. 😉 Hee hee, I like those too!
      Thanks for commenting, Livy!

  7. So fun!! The coloring is so pretty, and you got some great pictures! I was opening photos in a new tab so that I could comment my favorites as url’s… well I guess I should narrow it down because I ended up with about 10 tabs XD
    Here are a few of my favorites…
