“It’s double the giggles and double the grins, and double the trouble if you’re blessed with twins”
As a professional photographer, I always get to work with some of the most amazing clients! It is true, I have been blessed with meeting some of the most incredible people that have become very dear to my heart. Working with families is a passion of mine, as seeing them grow and evolve is so exciting to me. Although I love working with older children, newborn photography has always been one of those things that just stand out to me. I absolutely love capturing sweet newborn moments. Their cute little features, their innocence, pure love, all it fills my heart with so many emotions. Photographing these little ones can be challenging at times, but over the years I have learned many tips and tricks that helped me become successful at what I do.
One of the biggest difficulties and blessings I have faced is working with newborn twins. Many people think that if you can photograph one, you can photograph two. However, this is not always the case. Working with two babies at once is much more difficult, but if your photographer is educated on newborn twin photography, chances are they love being a part of it! If you are expecting twins and want to document their first few moments, be sure you choose a newborn photographer who is specialized in twins.
Let’s face it – newborns are unpredictable, and they have to be in charge of the session. Twins are twice as unpredictable, so I have done lots of research and used lots of experience in perfecting the art of photographing these sweet babies! For example, I always ask mamas which child settles easier. I will make sure to lay the more stubborn twin down first, and then the mellow one later. This will usually calm the babies down and allow them to rest. Also, keeping the twins close together also calms their little nerves, as they spent 8-9 months together in the womb! Intertwining their little bodies can make them very comfy and put them right to sleep. I have many other tricks up my sleeve to help me in photographing twins.
If you have twins on the way and are interested in booking a session, please reach out! I would love to capture your precious babies!
