There is nothing more precious than a newborn.  They are squishy, tiny, love to sleep and dream of whatever babies dream about, they make adorable noises and their toes are the tiniest, sweetest things on the planet.  It was such a joy to photograph this sweet family in their home just a few weeks after their sweet twins were born.  Yes, twins!  Double the sweetness.

I also really loved this session because this family allowed me to do what I love to do with families.  They let me document a little sneak peek of their lives with these two new tiny people in the midst.  I used to not have as good of an idea how to approach newborn sessions.  There many people who are amazing at getting those “perfect baby” shots.  And that is their artistic eye and talent, but it is not mine.  I’ve discovered with newborns that I don’t like to bring a lot of props, and backgrounds, but just photograph them as I would other subjects.  I want to photograph them in the natural state, at home, being welcomed into their family, with their parents learning the ropes.  Parents who are so in love, so tired, and so beautiful.  This shoot was a really great experience for me, and I hope for the family as well. Also these two twins were beyond precious.  So so so cute!

YES! i hate having to tell people, "no, i don't have a prop bag, or hats or blankets that i bring to your house." i use what you have or nothing at all. and i catch life as it is. happy to take some "posed" baby shots, but it will not be be perfect like a studio. those are beautiful, but not my style." this make me so excited for our twinsies! except i have two more older crazies jumping around. great work!
