Where do I start…
….the beginning is usually the best. This is the story behind these two angels in their Mother’s words:
After 7 years of hoping, praying and trying for a baby, our prayers were answered with TWO miracles! 7 years…10 inseminations…1 failed adoption…and 4 rounds of IVF. It was the most treacherous path to our amazing destination. The years of procedure after procedure, medications, monthly charting, excitement and let down all got us to this final page. It’s a sad story with such a happy ending! Meet Austin Joe and Amelia June…
Photographing a newborn is a monumental task that takes time, experience and patience. Photographing twins is double the fun and can be very intimidating. So far the twins I have photographed have been rockstars and these two did not break my streak. To set the picture, the session happened on a day that the high temperature for the day was below zero, meanwhile in the studio it was 82 degrees. We spent around four hours capturing all these poses, while taking time to feed and change the babies. With twins you just have to expect that pretty much everything will get pooped and peed on (one of many reasons I make sure all my props are washable), so a couple backdrop changes were mixed in there also. By the end we were all sweating (babies were happy as could be) and ready to walk outside into the freezing temperatures.
