I know how precious sibling photos can be — precious not only for their sentimentality, but also in scarcity! I can only say that, where sibling photos are concerned, the old adage “The cobbler’s sons have no shoes” rules. Oh sure, I have candid shots, mostly taken with my phone, but wall-quality portraits? Naw. A good sibling photo (where young children are concerned!) is hard fought for, and usually requires a tremendous amount of patience (or possibly luck) on the part of the photographer. When said photographer is doubling as mother, patience can be in short supply! Luckily, I have managed that elusive shot for many clients this year — here are a few favorites!
Crazy how close Christmas is! With the nice coating of snow on the ground here in the Washington DC metro, it’s certainly feeling a lot like Christmas. We even have our very own, approxiamtely 1 foot high, “Frosty the Snowman” [attempt] in our backyard! Stay tuned for winter snow pictures (probably coming in January), and more immediately, tomorrow’s Day 7 post, where I post pictures that don’t include people!
