Calgary Newborn Identical Twins Photoshoot - Paige and Quinn - Calgary and Airdrie baby photographer by Mila Boekestyn

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.

Finn, Grayson and Ryder by Mila Boekestyn

I LOVE meeting my newborn clients after a certain time, seeing them grow up into adorable babies with their own unique personalities.  You may remember these cute twins from my earlier blog, they are 10 months now! A very happy and smiley Finn, a very serious Grayson and a very busy Ryder :-)  Julie and Eric have their hands full with these little champs! 

Aby and Rory - 1st Birthday - Cake Smash photoshoot by Mila Boekestyn

I can't believe it has been a year!  Abygail and Aurora (Aby and Rory) were my very first clients, here in my new home - Calgary, Alberta.  I did their newborn photoshoot last year, and look at them now!  Wow, time really does fly - so capture this moment to last forever!!!  It was really interesting to see how their personalities have developed - Rory (in purple / green) is much more daring, a "go-getter", this little girl knows what she wants and goes for it! Aby is just a gentle soul, so sweet and so tender. Together, they are: Yin and Yang. Happy 1st Birthday beautiful girls, thank you for allowing me to be part of this very special moment in your lives!

Abygail, Aurora and family by Mila Boekestyn

This was a really exciting photoshoot as I not only got to see my newborn clients completely transform into the most adorable babies, I also got to meet their extended family - cousins, aunt, uncle and grandparents! What did you do since last August? Well... Aby and Rory (on my very first blog) were very busy growing up and learning how to sit and crawl.

Twins Twins Twins, there must me something in Calgary's water :-)  I was so lucky to spend a warm autumn day with these cute "almost six year olds" brothers.  They were just so full of energy and happy, it is contagious!  Had such a great time during this photo shoot!

Finn and Grayson by Mila Boekestyn

Last photo shoot I was fortunate to photograph 2 adorable twin sisters and this time, I had an honour to spend some time with these handsome twin brothers. I was fascinated by their names - so original and unique :-), so I looked up the meaning ... According to Urban Dictionary:  Finn: "a bad - ass dude with brains and brawn" and Grayson - "a rare boy, with the ability to love with all his heart". Can you guess who is Finn and who is Grayson looking at those pictures? ;-)

Recently, I was fortunate enough to photograph these adorable twin baby girls.  They were just over 2 weeks old and were soundly asleep throughout the whole session.  I brought my 8 year old daughter to the photo shoot with me and she was a great help! Now she is writing a letter to Santa asking him to bring her a real big camera for Christmas, just like mommy's.  Uh oh :-)
