Baby's First Year and Beyond

Double the Fun | Connecticut Newborn Photographer


It’s not everyday that a photographer gets to take pictures of newborn twins! For me, it makes the entire session double the fun, because you get to capture double the joy on the faces of the parents, as well as design a unique shoot centered around both of the twins’ budding personalities. Mom and dad (Kim and Michael) have spent 4 years of bliss together, and have a 17-month-old son Thomas, alongside their boy-girl twins, Grace and Joseph. 

Grace and Joseph are two of the most gorgeous babies you’ll see, and I loved the opportunity to get them in front of my lens! We decided on a color palette of whites, creams, and gold, and I loved incorporating these lovely colors into the session in my studio. It gave me the chance to use gold leaves, surrounding the newborns in the wicker basket with the colors of fall and winter. We wrapped them up tight in white; Grace was wrapped in a lacier fabric with a floral pattern and a flowery headband, and Joseph with a solid and cozy fabric.

We got close-up shots of their cute, tiny features. I especially love the shot with the two of them holding each other – there’s nothing more precious! We brought out the golden cream fur, and gently laid the twins one by one on it and got some shots of them individually. It was so fun looking at the two of them side by side and trying to find all the differences. You can tell them apart, but just barely! It was even more fun to have Thomas in the session, what with his joy in being a big brother to two siblings.

All of a sudden, a family of three became a family of five, and it was wonderful to capture the whole lot of them in this newborn session! Mom and dad were overjoyed to hold their babies in their arms, with Thomas between them. Grandma Viet joined in, and I do love the picture with her holding her swaddled grandchildren in her arms. I was able to capture so many precious moments for this beautiful family, and they are so happy to have these moments hung up in their home for everyone to enjoy!
