You decide...

This year for Christmas, The Sisters and I are giving our parents pictures. We haven't had professional pictures taken in many years, and thought it would be a nice surprise for our parents. Since my parents do not read my blog I thought I'd have my blogger friends help us decide on the best pictures. Let us know which ones you like....








Thanks, I knew I could count on you guys!

Oh, those are so good!! I love them all, I cannot believe your littlest sister is so grown up. I remember playing with the fart machine with her in the apt. HA!! I like the black and white close up and the last one the best. Your parents are going to love it, whichever you pick. You are all beautiful!!

I like the second one and the last one. Most of the rest seem to "touristy", almost focusing on the landscape/buildings rather than you all as sisters. The second-to-last one, under the arch/bridge is a very fun picture but it doesn't work for me, although maybe it works for you & your parents and that's what counts.

I think out of all of them I'd go with the last one with the three of you sitting on the steps. Maybe it's just me, but IMO that one captures the three of you as not just sisters, but as your parents' children. I think the older we get the harder it is for us to remember that while we may be adults, we're still our parents' children and the last one on the steps seems to reflect that the most...in my opinion :)

I like the last one as well. Very nice pictures!

i like 1,3,4,6.

Renee said...

brutal honesty here...

#1 - there's too much background
#2 - it's okay, but if you're wanting to give a picture of you...not so much.
#3 - I like the pose but not the background.
#4 - I like this
#5 - I like the pose, but it appears that #1 Sister's scarf is coming out of #2 Sister's head.
#6 - cute picture
#7 - I really like this one, but I would probably crop some of the background out of it.

I think the first two are cool, but I think you're parents would prefer a picture where they see more of you and I think the last one is the best for that. I agree though, I would crop some of the background out...takes the focal point away from you all.

I like the 3rd and 4th from the bottom. You are gorgeous! Love the haircut!

Aubrie said...

I like the 2nd & 5th ones. cute!

KC said...

My favorites are the very last one and then the BW with the "state capitol" in the background....I would crop some of the background of this one though to focus more on you gals.

TC said...

I like the second one and the last one the best, but they are all great!!!

I've been thinking we need to do something like this for my parents. Convincing my brother of that could be a tough sell though...

Bone said...

#2 looks like the three of you have formed a band and this is your first album cover. Save it in case that ever happens.

I agree with Renee about #1: too much background, not enough sisters.

How many can we pick?

#4 is my favorite.

#6 is my backup. And #7 is my safety.

Emily said...

I like one of the ones that is closer up of you guys. The black in white is really good!

Amy in Edmond said...

You should probably pick the one that is the closest up of you. As parents age their eye sight goes, so they will be able to identify you and your sisters. Just kidding.

It is fun to see what your sister look like, since I've never met them.

Michelle said...

I like the last one the best, and I'm wearing the shirt you're wearing today! Crazy huh?

Kara said...

Definitely #5. The rest are gorgeous but (from my experience) parents liek the closeups of their kids, more than cool locations :)

BTW are how many years of blogger friendship I've finally clicked as to your name. The whole time I've been thinking okchick stands for "I think I'm pretty alright" (in a good way!) but I've just clicked it probably stands for Oklahoma!!

Chell said...

I like the last two pics...

BTW...step over to my blog when you have a chance... you have an award waiting for you.

OK Chick said...

HAHA Kara you make me laugh.

Thanks everyone for your help. You've helped The Sisters and I out!!

Ally said...

Your parents are definitely going to want more of you guys, less background, so I'd have the first or last photograph cropped. Fun gift idea! And way to think ahead too. Let us now what you use.

Karla said...

As a parent myself...I certainly like the closer ones...I really like #5 and I also like #7. Y'all look great together.
