A Group Photoshoot: All the TN Girls

Hello everyone! It's Melodie. Here is the second post as promised in our last post. I completely meant to post this yesterday. I had it all set up and all I had to do was hit "Publish", and then life happened and I was busy watching little siblings. So, back to this post. It's going to be kind of short, but I hope you enjoy seeing out little photoshoot.

So, before Christmas we got together with all our friends to take one big photo. We have a ton of friends, so it made it a little complicated, but we did get two amazing photos. I'll add the names from left to right so you know who is who.

From Top to Bottom, Left to Right:

Riley, Sierra, Briana, Morgan, Hazel, Kariss, Melodie
Emily, Kaitlyn, Cameron, Sam, Lexi, Charlotte
Elizabeth, Anna, Audrey, Gracie, Ariel, Ella. Ariana, Summer

Here is the last group photo we all took. This is from 3016, I believe. Everyone from the previous photo is in it.
From Left to Right:
Charlotte, Sierra, Morgan, Riley, Briana, Sam, Emily
Kariss, Hazel, Kaitlyn, Cameron, Melodie, Lexi
Ariel, Ella, Gracie, Ariana, Anna, Audrey, Elizabeth, Summer

From Left to Right:
Melodie, Lexi, Briana, Kariss, Gracie, Hazel, Sam, Elizabeth, Anna
Charlotte, Morgan, Ariel, Elizabeth, Anna, Audrey, Riley, Summer
Emily, Sierra, Cameron, Kaitlyn

After we took the first photo, we decided to take another one. This time, we had everyone positioned in order of how we met them. It goes oldest to youngest within families. It's kind of complicated, especially since people were adopted, so I'll link a post about how we started our blog. Another way you can see who is related to who is our Friends and Family page.

We hope you enjoyed our little photo shoot.

Kaitlyn and Cameron's Christmas

Hello everyone! It's Morgan. We are sorry we didn't post over Christmas break, but it was hectic, and then we all got colds. We're all feeling better now, so we're back to post. Kaitlyn and Cameron took a lot of pictures of their Christmas, so we decided to let them do a photostory about setting up their tree, as well as showing us what they got. Enjoy!

"Cameron, the tree's up!"
"Great, let's arrange the branches so it's looks good."

"Doesn't it look beautiful?"
"Why did we get a silver tree again?"
"Because it was what they had. It was that or a gold one. I think this one is much prettier."

 "Cameron, help me get these lights untangled."
"I think we're stuck."
 "At least we know they work. That's a good thing, right. Cameron?"
"Why did I agree to this?"

"Finally, we got the lights on! Thanks for helping me, Kaitlyn"
"No problem. Should we turn them on?"

"They look amazing!"

 "My ornament is an orange M&M peeping out of box. He's so cute. What about you, Cameron?"
"Mine is the green M&M with a Santa hat. She looks fabulous, just like me."
"Oh Cameron."

"This looks really good. How does it look from your side, Kaitlyn?"
"It looks amazing. Kinda patriotic, with the red and blue. But I like it."

"This looks so pretty. I put up the little angel over here. Can you see it?"

"And from my side you can see the yellow and blue M&Ms. The tree looks absolutely perfect!"

 "We did good, Cameron."

"One last look to make sure everything is perfect."
"The blue and red are so pretty, and I love the combination of both shiny and matte ornaments."

"One... last... one."
"Kaitlyn! It's done."
"Okay, okay. I think you're right. Besides, I don't want the tree to fall down."

 Christmas morning the girls gathered around the tree to open presents.

A closer look at the presents.

 Kaitlyn got a sleep mask, scarf and headband from her parents and a spa set from her sister that included a pillow, soft blanket and lotions.

Cameron also got a sleep mask from her parents, as well as a headband and scarf, except hers has penguins on it. She got a crocheted pillow Kaitlyn made with the word "amour" (French for love) on it.

Both girls also got Christmas dresses from their gradmother, but they didn't take pictures. They did wear them in a Christmas photo we took (stay tuned to see a post about taking a big group photo. We'll try to have it up by tomorrow night)

I hope you enjoyed seeing how the twins celebrated Christmas. Comment below what your favorite gift was.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Twin Power: A Photoshoot

Hello everyone! It's Morgan with a photoshoot of the twins; Cameron and Kaitlyn. They took this photoshoot a month ago, and I was finally able to get the photos, do a few edits (such as lighting and color) and post it. Enjoy!

The original twin sisters of the blog (click here to see the first time I ever posted about these beauties)

Black and white. I love the look of a classic black and white photo.

Brighter lighting. I love how their outfits nearly match. Pink bottoms with teal/blue tunics

Black and white with a different top. They really are best friends like the shirt says

Brightened the lighting slightly, as the original was very dark. Don't they stand out against the beautiful green and brown in the background?

The original (no edits). I love how the light hits their faces from this angle.

I loved getting to post an amazing photoshoot of my best friends. They make our lives so much better.

Which photo was your favorite?

The Finale of the Arkansas Trip

Hello everyone! It's Sierra. I'm sorry that this is up later than we meant it to be. I wanted to the last post with Emily, but it isn't going to work out. I want to do a recap/extra photos soon, so Emily will MOST DEFINITELY be in that post. Anyway, so if you haven't seen our other posts, click here and here.

So, Emily and I didn't take any photos of our adventures on Wednesday, or Thursday. Wednesday we were gone all day with friends, and I didn't take any photos. Thursday was a typical Thanksgiving with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (Dear Evan Hansen's song was the BEST),  The National Dog Show, which our dogs loved 😉 (anyone else watch this?) Turkey with all the fixings, and spending time with family. Emily and I had such a great Thanksgiving together, and I was so happy to spend some quality time with her and my family and her family.

Friday we decided to go out for breakfast. Emily and I got up early and were ready before everyone else, so we decided to take another photo shoot for fun.

Best friends, best cousins

I am wearing a pink shirt with gold words that say "Best Friends" on top of a diamond, black and white striped leggings, new pink combat boots and a gold bow headband (you can see it better in the next picture. Emily is styling a pink shirt with grey cats all over, a dark jean skirt, zebra patterned leggings and new blue shoes that have stars on them (even though you can't see them in the picture)

Oh yeah, Emily is also wearing a peach colored bow on her ponytail. It's really hard to see because of the camera. You can see my headband here though. We put on our jackets cause it was kinda chilly.

Me from an angle. I love this picture and may use it on the "Friends and Family" tab.

The always amazing Emily. She looks like a sassy diva here, but that's just for the camera. My cousin is the kindest person ever.

I am so thankful for my cousin. Lots of love.

Together we reach for the stars. Emily is so creative and fashionable, and I enjoy finding art through photography.

I hope you enjoyed our little photo shoot on our last day in Arkansas. We had an amazing trip seeing our friends, spending time together and just getting out for a week. We've enjoyed getting to share our experience with you, and hope you enjoyed getting to be part of our trip.

Hopefully we'll get to post some extra photos and comments about our trip soon. I have thought about also showing some cute stuff I got while on the trip. What would you guys like to see? Comment below what you want me and Emily to post about to recap our trip.

What was your favorite part of Thanksgiving, and what do you want to see in our next (recap) post?

Stylin' for the Camera

Hello everyone! Sierra and Emily here. If you haven't seen our last post, click here to read about why we're posting. This morning we decided to go take photos outside of our cute outfits. Enjoy!

These trees are perfect. Emily is styling a purple cat sweater and a gold bow, while Sierra is wearing a Eiffel tower shirt, pink leather jacket and a camera.

Now you can see the rest of our outfits. Emily finishes her look with a jean skirt, lavender tights and tan fringe boots. Sierra has patterned leggings, black boots and sunglasses.

The two Arkansas besties!

Sierra, Brownie, Snickerdoodle, and Emily. Our puppies are the sweetest things and we love them to pieces.

Emily in a tree. Sierra is behind the camera for a little while. Isn't her outfit amazing?

A closer shot of Emily. Her sweater is the cat's meow.

Different tree, same sweet girl.

Sierra climbed up high so we could get this shot. She looks like she's flying!

Stark contrast photo. Doesn't Sierra pop from the background?

Best friends and cousins forever

Emily with some pretty pink flowers.

Emily with a plant. She looks fabulous against all the green and red.

Emily says the best part of our trip so far has been going to the old boutique yesterday. She really enjoyed getting to look through the clothes and help out like she used to.

Sierra against a brick wall. She really enjoys getting a stark contrast to pop out from.

By some greenery. Sierra says her favorite part has been seeing some of her best friends while she's been out.

Little girl on the prairie. Just kidding. We found a field and Sierra had to take an artistic photo.

We hope you enjoyed our photoshoot. We are going to post more of our adventures while we're here, so keep coming back to see what we're up to.

What's your favorite thing to do while on vacation?

We're Going Home!

Hello everyone! It's Sierra and Emily, not Morgan or Melodie. We are officially in our hometown in Arkansas for Thanksgiving!!! We are so excited to be back and getting to see old friends and visit our favorite places. We are going to be collaborating on posts, so Sierra will write in blue and Emily will write in pink.

(Note from Morgan: Sorry we haven't posted in so long. Enjoy hearing from our Arkansas besties!)

Ok, I gotta admit, I did not see this coming. My parents completely surprised me by saying we were going back to Arkansas for a week. I may have screamed for a solid minute ;)

I was super crazy excited when my parents told me! I hugged and kissed my puppy a gazillion times.

I had wanted to go back over the summer, but it never worked out. We were busy and then school started up and we couldn't go. I was disappointed, but I understood. So, you can imagine how excited I was to hear we were going!!!

I already have a list of things to do while we're here. Visit friends, take a ton of pictures (obviously), and have fun! What about you, Emily?

I can't wait to visit my old boutique, share my new styles and see my old friends!

As you can see, we're super excited to be home. We'll post during the week and show you what we're up to!

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
