Goodness gracious! I am so excited to write this post!. I adore this mother and her new twin girls! These two cuties were full of spunk and they were sure to show it during our session! That's actually why I LOVE doing lifestyle sessions! I mean, I get really excited for them thinking about the possibilities. Don't get me wrong. I love the posed newborn images. There's something about a beautiful baby curled up in just the right position and tucked in with a layer of blankets strategically coordinated to the environment. It's just that it takes HOURS to make that happen. Sure, you can have good days and happy babies that cooperate. But that doesn't come by frequently. Most of the time, that sweet bundle of joy is content in mom's arms and wails when put on a cloth. It takes patience, sweat, a very heated room and a lot of changed diapers and milk supply.
For my newborn sessions, I have taken on an adapted approach. Our sessions usually are a little over an hour and focus on baby's temperament at the time. If baby wants to be held, we take some pics of mom or dad holding the baby and go with that. If baby is fast asleep, we attempt a cute pose or try a few creative ideas. It's great! It takes a fraction of the time and you get a variety of fun pictures.
This twin session was a great example of just that. A little bit of everything. Sugar and Spice and everything nice.
The above pictures are pure spunkiness. They were totally messing with us….and I just love their personalities captured here!
Guys, I never get tired of these. A simple background with precious babies is always a win.
Then we got creative and went outside!
I can't get over this mama of four. She's a beautiful and amazing woman and these children are so blessed to have her. Here's to years of diapers, giggles, late nights, knock knock jokes, tiaras and kisses. It's a great adventure, indeed!
