Happy Friday everyone!
If you haven't noticed, I have been doing a lot of maternity & newborn sessions lately...& I'm loving it! Newborn photography is not my specialty by any means, but being invited into someones home to capture a special season in their lives is right up my ally! I've been learning a ton about working with new babes & feel more prepared every time I have to work with them...soooo glad I was able to get lots more practice in before I had double duty with these adorable little ladies! ;)
I had the opportunity to capture Dustin & Amanda's wedding (five years ago this October!) & was thrilled when she told me they were expecting TWINS this summer! EEEEK!!! This couple is just so sweet, down to earth, honest, & fun - working with them has always been a pleasure & I have a feeling it's only going to get better as their beautiful girls grow.
They welcomed their sweet little ladies, Adella Mae & Cecily Claire, into their world about 5 weeks early. Since they had to spend some time in the hospital growing & getting stronger we waited a little while to do their newborn session...they were actually 1 month old when we did these & still so tiny!
You can tell them apart in these two photos...but I was definitely having a hard time keeping them straight during the session. haha
This was a beautiful broach that Amanda actually wore in her hair on their wedding day...she had the idea of putting it on the girls for a few photos. I love how beautiful & special these images are!
Amanda was full of great ideas...she wanted Dustin holding both of them...& then she said, "stack them". haha We weren't sure how it was going to work, but it's one of my favorite images from their session!
I mean, how sweet is this?!
I love love love getting to celebrate more than just weddings for my clients...this was double the sweetness for sure! Thanks for inviting me to share in so many special moments in your lives Dustin & Amanda - it has been such a pleasure working with you & I'm looking forward to many more fun moments with your growing family in the years to come!
