Any time I take annual birthday portraits of a child, I just can’t resist taking a few sibling photos as well.ย  I love how these girls can act so silly, sweet and loving with each other.ย  I remember that their mother used to sing “You Are My Sunshine” to them when they were babies, so I love the fact that the sun came out for a few photos with the girls.
