Wow. I’m not even sure where to start. One of my professional goals for 2012 was to tackle my first set of twins. I knew it was going to be a challenge, but I also knew it was going to be rewarding. Sometimes getting one newborn sleepy and posed for a session is hard work. Two is obviously harder. Twice as many feet and hands to wrangle, twice the poop and pee, and twice the bottles. It was a good thing I had an extra set of hands to help me. A super big thank you to Laddy Kortekaas for coming all the way from Charlotte to help me out!
Sweet baby “P” and “T” are identical twin boys. They were just 4 1/2 pounds when they came to see me. By the far the tiniest babies I’ve had to date. They were so sweet and I was simply amazed by watching how they interact with each other. When one grunts, the other responds. When one moved an arm, the other would move theirs – and this happened a lot. The only thing that wasn’t always the same was that one seemed to always be awake while the other was sleeping! We kept them swaddled for most of their session as it seemed to be the only way to keep them both sleeping at the same time. For my first set of twins, I think I did ok! I learned a lot, and hopefully will be able to put that into practice for my next set. Thanks to mom and big sister “B” for helping with the sweet boys and for trusting me with them. This isn’t the last you will see of them, we’re going to do their family shots in a separate session so stay tuned!
Sweet baby “T” and his smiles! He was full of them for us!
