To have twins in the studio for portraits is such a special occasion. Every newborn session is of course special but with a multiple birth it brings with it some wonderful challenges. Often one little one will be settled only for the other to be wriggling about like a little monkey 🙂 But as you can see from the results, being patient produces beautiful results.
Typically one of these photo shoots takes around 3-4 hours. So it’s always a good idea to bring yourself a few snacks along, plenty of spare nappies, bottles and milk if you are not breast feeding. And just like us, bags of patience because we always go at little ones pace not ours.
Safety is always of the upmost importance here at the studio. We keep the studio at a good temperature during the sessions, not too cold and most importantly not too hot!! Although keeping a baby toasty does help keep them sleepy, too hot can make babies rather uncomfortable.
I am often asked when is a good time to bring my baby in for a photoshoot? Well we say the first 7-10 days is the best time but we are happy to work with babies up to 6 weeks old. It’s just often the older they are, the less sleepy they become. This is how we get those adorable shots but if your baby is settled when awake then we also take pictures of them when they are awake too. If your baby has made an early appearance then it’s always best to give us a call to have a chat and we will help you decide when is best to come in.
