'sisters' by rachel ballard

when rachel ballard sent over this photo of her beautiful daughters, i was instantly smitten. i think this might be the sweetest photograph i've ever seen. what is more abundant than having (and appreciating) your loving family?

here is what rachel has to say about the photograph:


my girls inspire me every day. they make me remember what it means to love and be loved.
taken in early fall with my polaroid sx-70.
i almost always have a camera attached to my face. i feel blessed to be able to capture moments of beauty and share them with the world.
i'm a photographer and artist as well as a mother."

  1. yes, this really is the sweetest picture. i just know there are no pictures of my brothers showering love on me like this when we were little! more like wrestling going on. :)

  2. what a lovely polaroid! love the sister love.

  3. Aw, this is lovely! It makes me want to call my little sister immediately!

  4. this is beautiful, not only the beautiful little girls, but the atmospheric quality of the photograph. A moment caught, perfectly, like a memory.

  5. Wow. How beautiful is THIS??!!! I have a sister too & they are THE BEST :) How much ever you fight & can never see things the same way, no one will be there for you like a sister will.
    I love the warm dreamy sunlit quality of the pic too :)
