These 2 identical twin sisters were 1 month old during their newborn photoshoot. Usually I photograph newborn babies during the first 2 weeks of their lives, but It is very common to photograph newborn twins at a later date as they are usually born prematurely and many spend some time in the NICU (just like these 2 beautiful sisters did) and you can check out their NICU session here.
The girls were born with 1 pound difference in their birth weight and it was still very apparent during this photoshoot. Paige - the older (by 20 minutes) and the smaller twin was born weighting 3.75lbs and Quinn was at 4.88lbs. They were born at 35 weeks and 4 days.
It is very interesting to observe their personalities that start to develop so early in life. Paige is small but mighty - she is the feisty one - she doesn’t like to sleep much, she is often alert and ready to rock n roll and party, whereas Quinn likes to sleep, to be held and loves the attention. I wonder if their personalities will change in the future or will evolve. The photo of Paige “telling a secret” to Quinn and Quinn is “looking at her invisible watch” is one of my favourites from this session as this is so true to their personalities at this point of time.
We had a great session and big brother Liam was absolutely awesome with them - he is super gentle, caring and loving. I can’t wait to take more photos of these adorable identical twin sisters in the future.
