I have been looking forward to this session since August of last year when Katherine contacted me to get on my calendar.  I usually get 2-3 sets a year so I was super excited.  They were expected to arrive at the end of March but we all know twins like to come early.  Fast forward to Mardi Gras break this year and I got a message along with the cutest picture that they had arrived.

Those that know me know that I teach high school biology at an all girls school as well.  One day one of my sweet girls came up to me to show me pictures of her dance team coaches new babies. I said wait a minute…..they looked familiar…and I pulled up the email that Katherine sent with their photo.  Such a small world.  The same girls that I see every day at my other job are the ones that Katherine coaches in dance.

Baby Time!

I have never really used an assistant for my newborn sessions.  I don’t do many prop shots or complicated poses where I would require one but for this session I wanted to challenge myself with a few more complicated poses so I asked my daughter Mattie to help me.  Best decision ever.  Not only was she awesome with the babies, but it was  nice spending the morning with her. And thanks to my lovely assistant, we were able to get this pose:

Forgive me for oversharing this session….but I looooved every single set up.  They loved being snuggled up to each other.

At just about 5 lbs each, they were so teeny tiny and so perfect.  I’m always amazed at how perfectly formed babies are.  Just so small 🙂

My absolute favorite pose to do with boy/girl twins.  I did it for the first time with Roman and Olivia and adored it.

How many smiles did we get from these two?? Too many! I just wasn’t always fast enough to catch!

But I have to say, I think they gave smiles at just the right times….

So much thought and preparation goes into planning a session and work after to make the photos look exactly like my vision.  My absolute favorite part is once I am all done, putting together a collage so I can see everything together.  My favorites:
