Phoenix Newborn Photography | Twins A and M

Many of you don’t know this but I am a momma of twins, so I get a little giddy when I book a twin session. While they are harder then a single newborn to photograph, I love cuddling me some twins. It brings back precious memories of my twin boys, and then I get to give them back and sleep ALL night LOL. These sweet babies slept so well, and had usual twin behavior. One good sleeper and one that was always fidgeting…they may be twins but their personalities will be quite different and so can a twin photography session. Below are some tips on how to prepare for your twin session.

Tip 1 : Book as soon as you can. Don’t wait until the last minute. I need 2 assistants AND I need to order a few twins pieces. Most custom items that photographers buy take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to come in. Which leads me to my next tip.

Tip 2: Do not wait until your session day to tell your photographer all the props you like from her gallery on her website. Why? Well, photographers rarely have 2 of each item, or closely matching items, so if you come in and say you loved that pink wrap with the pink and gold headband, its highly unlikely she will have 2 for you. Once you book your session, chat with your photographer over the colors you want and what props you like and go from there.

Tip 3: Prepare Prepare Prepare. Twins need double the diapers, burp clothes and swaddles. Mom needs snacks and water for all the feedings. You may need to feed your twins once or twice during your 3-4 hour newborn session. Bring dad or grandma to help. Bring pumped milk or formula so they can be fed at the same time. Oh, and do not forget a pacifier! One of these sweet babies would not have been in the pictures if mom didn’t think to bring one! Non- Nutritive sucking is super important too. Read here for more info on what I am talking about.

I am sure there are more tips but we will leave that for another time. Enjoy the images of Miss A and Miss M.
