Your sister—she’s your best friend, partner in crime, and arch nemesis all rolled into one. From the hair-braiding to hair-pulling, you’ve have some pretty amazing times over the years, and formed an unspoken bond. Celebrate your special connection with some ideas and projects from Paper Coterie.
1. Hair to the Throne
Whether it’s a trip to the salon or a DIY makeover, be sure to get some before and after shots of you and your sister’s new dos. Or dig through old photos for some of your most regrettable hair don’ts!
2. Dressed to Impress
While you wouldn’t be caught dead in the same outfit today, as kids you probably insisted on it! Flip through your parents’ old albums for photos of you and your sister in matching outfits.
3. Girls’ Night Out
Hit the town for a sisters’ only night on the town, with camera in tow. But be kind to each other, and keep all those unflattering photos you don’t want anyone else to see just between the two of you.
4. The Big and Small Of It
As the older sister, you’re jealous of all the attention your younger sister gets; as the younger sister, you’re jealous that your older sister gets to be the first one to do everything. Is there a photo that depicts you taking good care of each other?
5. Photo Shop
Have your own Pretty in Pink moment together, trying on different outfits and photographing each other. And don’t be afraid to try on something ridiculous. (Tip: vintage stores can have some awe-inspiring get-ups.)
6. It’s for You
You probably spend a lot of time on the phone with your sister, right? So why not take pictures of each other talking, frame them, and set them up by each other’s telephones. It’ll be like she’s right there with you for every conversation.
7. Team Work
Are you an unbeatable team when it comes to euchre? Are you a force to be reckoned with on tennis court? Or are you the go-to girls for fashion makeovers? Get someone to catch the dynamic duo in the act!
8. Sister of the Bride
She’s probably your go-to-girl for maid of honor. So be sure your photographer knows that when it comes to capturing the big day, she’s high on the list.
9. Re-creational Activities
Look through old family photos for that one iconic photo of you and your sister (or even sisters, if there are a lot in your family). Try to recreate that photo today, right down to their hair and clothes!
10. Aunt Trap
In addition to being a great sister to you, she may also be a great aunt to your children. Photograph all the fun from their first introduction to slumber parties and play dates.
