“Hi Julie, this is …. & we need photos & we have TWINS!”
Fear always creeps into my photographer heart when these words are uttered from the mouth of a client. These shoots always leave me exhausted & sweaty, but the resulting photos are tender & nothing short of a miracle. Shooting one baby is hard. Shooting two babies is …whoa.
If you have twin babies & you are planning family photos, here are a few tips:
1. Plan on the shoot taking extra time.
2. Be patient with the kids, yourself, & the photographer. Remember, all you need is one good shot but it might take 25 to get that one good shot when twins are involved!
3. Smile even when you don’t feel like it. Oh, & have fun. Photos won’t look fun unless you’re having fun!
Don’t forget the most important relationship in the family! Your spouse! It’s what got you into this situation in the first place! Document it!
