Two of our favorite families from church have daughters whose birthdays are close. Their moms planned a combined birthday/slumber party and I spent the night, too. One of my daughter’s gifts to the girls was a glass picture frame that said “Sisters” in rhinestones. We couldn’t find “Friends,” but loved the idea of “sisters” since they are church sisters. Our idea was for me to take a picture of all the girls and then we would print two copies and deliver them at church.
We went outside for a girls’ photo shoot while the other moms were cooking. I used my 70-300mm lens and backed way off, so they would feel more comfortable. These girls were in such a bubbly mood with a birthday party, big dinner, night out at the movies, and slumber party on the agenda.
I downloaded them to my laptop and let the girls pick their favorite (having no idea what we’d planned). As it turned out, my friend Michelle had a photo printer, so I emailed them to her and she printed them there. They were so surprised – even my daughter – when they opened framed pictures of the photo we’d just taken!
