5 pickles in a field

a play on my sister’s last name that only my family will {potentially} find humorous…

I am no longer the worst sister in the world. I have officially finished editing my sister’s family pictures I did on Christmas Eve and mailed the cd to her just 2 days ago. A 3 1/2 week turn around ain’t too shabby.

I jest. {have no fear Michelle, I won’t take that long on yours.}

The day couldn’t have been better. G-man and I had driven in from San Francisco with an hour or so to spare before meeting up with my sister and adorably as we were getting in the car to head over, G-man tells me to pop the hatch without looking.

He slides something in, closes it and jumps in the passenger seat. As I’m going down the road he tells me I should pull over to open up a small little box all wrapped up, saying it was a ‘personal gift’ he wanted to give me just the 2 of us.

I open it, eager, and it’s a remote control for my camera. {clearly he was joking about the personal part} but he thought I might want to use it for the photo shoot. I thought that was so sweet. When we got to my sister’s house, he opened the back and there sat a tripod for my camera. Love that man!

Unfortunately, I didn’t use either that day but love them all the same and have used them since!

We met up on someone’s property with pretty trees and a beautiful line to the sun setting.

My nephew cracked a joke which had them laughing up a storm. It was about diapers, in case you’re wondering.



We could discuss why I kept them in the dirt and not on the pretty field behind them, but let’s just pretend I wanted to be “different” and “artistic” with it, and not a complete rookie with a lot to learn. They’re still adorable in my book.

This has to be one of my favorites from this session. I love my niece’s face and my brother in law looking at me with a peak of my sister’s smile.

..and of course this one is among them as well.

A shoot can’t go without kissing, in my book.

Hello, my beautiful sister.

I absolutely love my niece with her, ‘just one minute, please’ finger. I respectfully waited until she was done with her call before we resumed.

She still didn’t want to part with the phone though…

A big hearty thank you to my sister and family for being so willing to let me practice on them. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I sure learned a heck of a lot.

I hope you lovely ladies have a wonderful weekend. Drink some coffee for me..sans creamer of course. *wink wink*

Why is your family so cute?! I think your favourite is my favourite too. Such a sweet picture of your sister, bro-in-law and your littlest niece.

I have enjoyed catching up on all the posts I've missed out on. Your friend's hubby's martial arts/painting is awesome!! What a gift!
