I have to give my brother, Mark, credit this year for coming through on some excellent gift ideas for our parents. For our father, an ipod dock for his newish car. For our mother, pictures of the two of us in a cute digital picture frame.
It’s not the first time we’ve given this gift, but the last time was likely over eight (or more!) years ago. I do know that last time we used film. As we get older and into decades past our Sears portrait years, it’s really special to have these fun images of the two of us together.
My brother’s girlfriend, Jerisse, was sweet enough to do the photo shoot for us. She shot over 200 pictures and so many of them turned out really great. Last time we just set up a tripod in the forest and used a remote control. (Also, lots of fun!) We’ll have to remember to do it again sooner. It ends up being a treasured gift for all of us.
