Family Photography Session With Twin Baby Girls, Glasgow

I was invited to do a photo shoot in Glasgow - a family photography session with the proud parents of twin baby girls. I am an in-home photographer, so I went to their home in Glasgow to take the photos. The girls were 4 months old at the time of the photo shoot. The twins were really well behaved throughout the family photo shoot.

I started the session by taking a group shot of all four family members together. I was informed that the twins had just started taking notice of each other, but mostly ignored one another. I was therefore lucky to get photos showing the girls interacting - even if it was just through meaningful gazes, with occasional cheeky exchanged grins.

I asked the parents to sit back to back and raise the girls into the air. This gives a nice symmetry to the picture. This did bring about a smile or two in the girls and they definitely enjoyed playing peek a boo with  each other whilst up in the air.

As the saying goes - there's nothing so sweet as tiny baby feet. So of course I took photos of the feet of both girls. In two of the photos below one twin is being held by her dad next to the window to give nice natural light.

I took some portraits of dad with the girls - one of whom was asleep and one of whom was getting pretty sleepy. If you book your own photography session you soon find out that it can feel tiring posing for photos - especially if you are a baby. Although I was quite rightly informed that it's even harder work being the parents of twin baby girls.

The sleepiness continued and this photo is of the girls resting on their mother's lap whilst both were feeling very contented. Taking photos of sleepy babies makes for good photos.

One of the advantages of hiring a professional photographer is that every family member can be in the photos. The girl's mum is usually the photographer of the family and the one holding the camera. It was important to the family that she appear in photos too. And I am sure this is the case with a lot of families.
