Yes, that’s right, this session we had not only one but two little bundles of life in the studio.
Baby Mia & Henry.
However, I had the honour of capturing them both inside their mummy’s tummy before they made their appearance. Usually with maternity sessions we aim for images between 32-36 weeks. This is so that bump is big enough at 32 weeks but not too close to their due date at 36 weeks.
After all the guidelines do say that babies can come from 37 weeks +. Not always the case, especially for all you mummies who end up being overdue and dying to meet your little one.
Mia and Henry arrived into the world on the 22nd of February 2017 weighing it at 4pound 10oz (Mia) and 5pound 1oz (henry). Although they were early, luckily for the whole family they didn’t spend a long time in hospital which enables us to get their session in before they became too old.
As with most sessions we do all the usual preparations. Talk about colour schemes, poses, outfits there’s so much to think about when it comes to newborn sessions, let alone have two newborns coming in!!
However, their mummy was really laid back and let us have full rein to just do whatever we thought would be best. It’s like a dream when parents say that, it really lets me get creative with poses.
Most people would think that with a twin newborn session you get just photos of the babies together however that isn’t the case.
During the session we would position one baby first, usually henry as he is the biggest therefore he acts as a support for Mia in some poses. Once we’d capture henry on his own we’d then add Mia, to then take henry away to capture Mia by herself. Doing this way is so much smoother transition and doesn’t disturb ether twin much.
After all they are both their own little human being and as much as they be joined at the hip growing up they will venture off on their own at some point.
For the session we still stuck with neutrals to ensure that the images would suit in with the décor of the home. We added a pink and blue wrap into one of the bowl poses and tie to the end of the wraps together to signify how the twins are one.
We also had two matching grey outfits made especially for their session so that they both had little outfits that matched. And again we ensured we got separate images of them both.
The images speak for themselves from this session, here are my most favourite ones.
The exciting thing about meeting these two gorgeous twins is that their twin cousins will soon be here and I look forward to meeting them and capturing an image of them all together when there older.
