Family Photography Session With Twin Baby Girls
I was invited to shoot a family photography session by the proud parents of twin baby girls. I am a mobile 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 give the girls aeroplanes whilst back to back. This gives a nice symmetry to the picture. It also shows the girls looking at each other whilst up in the air.
Personally I can't get enough of tiny baby feet. I took photos of the feet of both girls. The latter girl is being held by dad, over by the window to give nice natural light.
Next it was dad's turn to sit for his portrait with the girls - one of whom was asleep and one of whom was getting pretty sleepy. It's hard work posing for photos. Although I was quite rightly informed that it's even harder work being the parents of twin baby girls.
Next for some photos of the girls themselves. At this point they were resting on their mother's lap and both feeling very contented.
It was important to the family that mum was able to get photos of herself with the girls. She is the photographer of the family and usually the one holding the camera. And I am sure this is the case with a lot of families.
Below are some individual black and white photos with the girls and their parents.
I am a family photographer based in Glasgow, who also works in Edinburgh. I am a mobile photographer - so I come to you to take the photos. Sessions can range from a more styled look to a 'lifestyle' session, showing off home and hearth. If you are interested in booking a session please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
