15 Hilarious Family Photos Of Couple And Their Fashionista Tortoise

To Kasey Kuchinski and Daniel Rodriguez, their 4-year-old tortoise Ethel is more than a pet. She’s their child!

That’s what inspired the couple from Sonoma, California, to put a comical spin on matching family portraits. As an experienced fashion designer, Kasey quickly got to work creating tiny outfits for her “daughter” so they’d all look the same. The results are as cute as they are hilarious! Check out their 15 best family photos below.
