Ahhh, twins – there is something very special about them, something that will always make people stop and smile. I have photographed quite a few toddler and preschool age twins in the last couple of years and they are always a delight to capture portraits of. But up until recently, I had never been lucky enough to do a newborn twins Photo Session, and it was definitely on my wish-list! So, imagine my delight when I was contacted about doing a very special Gift Voucher for some twins who were due to arrive in early 2012.
As always, I pre-advised the parents-to-be that we would need to do the Photo Session within the first 2 weeks, if they wanted to capture the really sleepy, lovely, newborn stage. And a few weeks later, on one slightly snowy morning, I set out to Horsham, feeling very excited to meet this little baby boy and girl.
As with all my Photo Sessions, my aim is always to capture a little slice of your family – your life how it is. And, as you can imagine, with newborn twins, life is pretty well turned upside down! I always reassure parents beforehand that I will work around both the baby’s and the parent’s needs and I allow plenty of time, especially for newborn Sessions. This makes for a relaxed, stress-free and enjoyable experience for everyone involved. I love to capture not just beautiful portraits of your baby, but also the connections between baby and new parent, the little details that you may well otherwise forget as time goes by. My style of newborn photography is not about trying to create a sometimes unrealistic image of the ‘perfect’ baby, but instead to tell a little heartfelt and genuine story of your brand new family.
It was incredibly difficult to pick my favourites from this Photo Session! I will leave you with the lovely feedback I had from the parents – feedback like this is what makes it all worthwhile for me.
“OH MY GOODNESS! My heart is melting!! You are SO clever – these are so beautiful… I don’t know how we can ever thank you for these!“.
Enjoy… K x
