A Holiday Twist

“Taking matters into her own hands, our young daughter grabbed and twisted her brothers ear to keep him still long enough for a Christmas photo. She kept her composure while doing it!! They are 22 and 19 now, and our son still remembers the pain of that twisted ear!”

“Mom had just set the timer on the camera and scooted herself in to the picture. I don’t remember what Ben did, but it earned him a punch in the gut from John and a glare from Jeff. The shutter clicked at the perfect time.”

The Pester Brothers

“You see that girl making the face? That’s me. And behind me are my two brothers who spent the whole shoot poking me the back, pinching me, the typical ‘brother’ things they do. This was caught just as I was doing one of those “Ach, fer crying out loud!” faces.
