I have had the privilege to photograph so many twins over the past few years, but this is my first time with newborn twins! I had so much fun with these miracle babies! I call them miracles because the mom had a C-section at 36 weeks and the girl baby was 3lb something and the boy was 5lb something. They both started eating really well, didn’t have to go to NICU, and they went home in a normal time. I took these pics when they were 9 days old. You’ll see the boy looks really healthy and is pretty normal sized. The girl however, is the smallest baby I have ever seen! She was just 4lbs at 9 days old and didn’t even seem real. This is an amazing family and I’m so excited for their journey with these twins (and their two other big girls). It is going to be an amazing ride!
Babies are unpredictable. This little guy was just one week old and awake the entire session. I think we made the most of it though. I will post more on Facebook, but here are a couple of my favorites, the one on the left that looks like he’s smiling and the adoration of the mother on the right is heartwarming.
I love it when I have repeat clients many times over several years. It is fun to see their families grow and their children’s personalities form. I remember when this family only had two children and their baby brother was just born. The older boy was so active and wouldn’t sit still for more than a second. Now he is a big brother again and seems to be so grown up already. They are such a sweet family and we have fun every session!
I’m taking a quick break from family activities to get some editing done from last week. This family was super cute. The older daughter was having a great time and making her own poses and everything. She was adorable. The younger one wasn’t interested for long, but we definitely snagged a couple framers before we lost her attention.
Newborns sessions are so rewarding. I love capturing the perfect shot that the family will cherish forever. This session could not have went more smoothly. The two older siblings were very cooperative and this (not even one week old) little guy did amazing as well. You may be wondering what is that shot with the goggles? Well, his father is a college diving coach, so we thought it’d be pretty adorable. What do you think?
It is no surprise that many men do NOT like having their pictures taken. I know my minis are great for these families because the wives just say, “It’s only 15 minutes!” This poor dad was tricked on his birthday, but was a good sport about it. His wife told him she booked them a room for his birthday in Saugatuck. When he was excited about it, she also quickly mentioned that they’d be stopping by the beach to get family pics before dinner. The birthday dad was a good sport and what a great family photo! I also really love is this mother/daughter shot! I think it really shows the love that mothers have for the children, just the look of complete adoration and unconditional love. Love it and would love a shot like that with my three girls!
