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
DSC_2159 (1280x853)
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!



Sisters Photoshoot #2

A little while ago Megan and I decided to do another sister’s photoshoot! (See the first one here. Oh yeah, she’s gotten contacts since then!) I don’t take pictures of people very often, so I thought it would give me good practice, and not to mention Sisters Photoshoots are really fun. 😀 They are certainly not the best portraits ever, but I had fun experimenting and I thought I’d show you guys the results. 🙂

Megan wanted me to get some pictures of her in a tree with the golden sun shining through the leaves, so I did… but they didn’t turn out quite as golden as it seemed like it should. XD

This is a random photo I took of Megan for a co-op thing. :

 I really like this picture! I took it when we were on a nature walk when I also got a lot more pictures, so I’ll hopefully post those soon. Dandelions are so fun!

Ha ha, I *think* I caught Megan when she wasn’t looking. 😉

She was certainly looking here! No, I just scared her and she jumped. XD I love taking jumping pictures! Apparently Megan does too. XD

After that, Megan took some pictures of me. I was inspired by Loren’s gorgeous post to make a crimson clover flower crown. 😀 Heh heh, it was a bit too sunny so I’m squinting a bit and my smile looks kind of pained, but otherwise I like these pictures. XD XD XD I’ll keep trying… 😛

After that I took some pictures of myself with the timer on my camera, since I don’t have a remote. I kept running back and forth until I wore a path in the triticale field (and got my capris rather green). XD

I did get one that I liked enough to be my profile picture, as you might have noticed.

There we are! I hope you enjoyed these photos. 🙂 Do you like taking pictures of people?


P. S. Well, I am officially 17. I feel old. XD And I had a wonderful birthday, thanks so much for asking! 😀 Would you guys like to see a “haul” post? (Ugh, I really don’t like that name for some reason, so I shall change the title if I do it. 😛 ) This feels like an awkward ending now so… um, thanks for reading. XD
