Baby Amelia and Baby Selene came to visit my Roseville studio for their newborn portraits when they were 9 days new. Their big brother Levi, was so proud to introduce his new baby sisters. He is so sweet with them and an amazing helper.
By now, you all most know that I LOVE babies, and newborn photography is my passion. Despite my extensive experience with baby snuggles, this was my first time photographing twins. (Well newborn twins, I should clarify. I have photographed a handful of older twins!) I had twice as much fun putting together set ups and matching outfits for the babies, but I was a teeny bit nervous about how it would go when I had to pose them.
Twins are double the cuteness but I figured it would also be double the work. In order to photograph a newborn baby and have that baby appear peaceful and comfy, there is a considerable amount of effort that goes into posing the baby and making sure that every tiny finger and every single detail is in the right place. With the knowledge of the challenge of posing just one baby in mind, I imagined that the two babies would startle each other. I thought they would be constantly wiggling from their poses and that this newborn session would be a tough endeavor. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I found that having the two babies snuggled up right next to each other actually was very calming for the twins, and not at all what I anticipated. These girls were sweet and sleepy dream babies, so I ended up being worried about nothing.
I posed these darling girls on a variety of set ups and pulled out all of my favorite girly props. I am in love with the series of shots that I took of them all snuggled up in my doll bed.
Congratulations Pomato Family! <3
