Newborn Twin Girls – Baby Photography Session
Posted on 22 Mar, 2018 by Sarah Hart
Last month, The Good Birth Practice – who offers relaxed private and group courses in hypnobirthing – were running a week long giveaway and I gladly donated a prize for a newborn mini session. I was doubly thrilled to hear that the winner was expecting twins! Super exciting for me as, whilst I’ve photographed newborn twins several times in 2016, I hadn’t had any newborn twins to photograph last year.
When new parents, Lois and Mark arrived at the studio with their gorgeous girls, I talked them through how my newborn photography is completely baby-led and that, as this was a mini session, the emphasis would be on capturing the girls just as they were – i.e. probably awake, moving & wriggling – and it was unlikely we’d get any posed newborn images that I achieve in my full newborn photo shoots. WELL, blow me down – these little girls were SUPER easy to photograph, as they were practically asleep the whole hour! I also captured some fabulous windy smiles 🙂
I started off by swaddling both babies in a lovely tight and secure wrap – this helped to keep them lovely and sleepy. And then I unwrapped them to get some simple blanket shots of them both together and individually. Here are some of the beautiful images we achieved in the mini session:
If you are expecting and would be interested in capturing the tiny details of your baby (or twins!), I take bookings any time after you’ve had your 20 week scan and would love to hear from you. Or, if you’d like to learn how to swaddle like a pro, have a read of this quick blog on swaddling (with a FREE downloadable swaddle guide)
