When I got a call requesting a gift certificate for a baby shower, I was especially excited to learn that it was for a twin baby girls! I added the babies’ due date to my calendar and waited patiently for the gift to be gifted, for the babies to arrive, and for their momma to reach out to chat about the session.
The twins’ newborn session was scheduled for their 17th day. They were so itty bitty and sweet, just over 4 lbs each. They slept amazingly well during the session, and were SO easy to work with. They barely made a peep. They cozied right up to each other, allowing me to snuggle them together in lots of cute and cuddly poses.
We styled the session in creams, baby pinks, purple, and soft green. Their momma requested a mermaid themed photo too, and swaddled in shades of teal wearing starfish headbands, they looked absolutely adorable. Last but not least, they wore a sparkly hats bought for them by their grandma.
