{Raleigh NC Newborn Photography} Twin Girls In-Home Session

August 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I love photographing multiples.  I don't get the opportunity very often, maybe once or twice a year.  Oddly enough, all of the sets I had photographed before this set were twin boys.  I met this wonderful family at their home in Raleigh.  The girls were so adorable and petite, even though they were born right on time.  It was so much fun to see how different they were in personality.  Mom told me that Nora, shown below, was the calm, laid-back, easy baby.  She mostly slept and barely made a peep the whole time I was there.

Her sister, Ani, on the other hand, had some spunk and loved to be more alert and watchful.  She did fall asleep for quite a bit of the session, but she didn't appreciate being moved or handled.

Ani had quite a head of hair for a newborn baby.  Mom said that all of the babies born in the family (these girls have a big brother and sister) came with a head full of hair.  I loved that their mom loved keeping a very simple style with the girls.  We only used a few hats and headbands, and for the most part photographed the girls with a very simple style.  

While I love the traditional little newborn poses that show off their cute little features, sometimes it's nice to photograph newborn babies more simply.  During this part of the session, we let the girls curl up in their own positions, relax, and move how they wanted.

Big brother and sister were busy as can be during their little sisters' photography session.  They looked on quietly and came and went to play with their toys and eat lunch.  When it was their turn to pose with their sisters, we used a spare bed in the home.  These siblings were so little themselves, but they did such a great job holding their sisters.

My past experience with twins had been that they tend to calm down quickly when they are placed together.  Not true for these girls.  They wanted their space and didn't always want to pose together.  Here they are swaddled and relaxing together for a few minutes before one of them woke up.

A portion of the girls' newborn photography session was done outdoors at a Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh.  This beautiful garden near the fairgrounds was in full bloom.  We immediately found a beautiful patch of echinacea.

This newborn photo session was so much fun.  Everything, from the beautifully simple colors and poses to the more vibrant portraits done in the garden, came together so nicely.
