These baby girl twins stole my heart right away. They are both so beautiful, with big, bright eyes and beautiful smiles. They are at the super fun stage of cruising the furniture. They were constantly on the move, crawling, pulling up, trying to walk. It was so funny how one would do something, and the other would immediately try to do it too – like pulling up on mama’s legs and reaching for her hands in order to try to walk. I love this stage of development. I loved playing with these little girls, and I look forward to playing some more!
The first time I’d seen this done, an example of it was brought to me by my seven year old daughter. It was inspired by photographer, Jennifer George, whose fine art portraiture takes my breath away. My daughter had found her book, The Art of Pregnancy Photography, while we were browsing through the local bookstore. My daughter and I both thought the technique was absolutely beautiful, and I was eager to try it out. Being a mom, and loving the ultrasound images I have of my own babies, this image of the baby seemingly in utero (albeit, in the breach position instead of vertex), just elicited the same feeling of awe that 4-D ultrasound images did. However, a few of my friends have thought it was kind of creepy.
This is my first attempt, and I’m pretty pleased with the results. So is my daughter. She told me this is one of her favorite photos I’ve done. It doesn’t hurt that the model is gorgeous, who I have featured here before, as well as her adorable, newborn baby boy. I will be posting more images of him soon, but I needed to get this one done for a school assignment, so I had to bump it up a bit in my editing queue. Anyway, I would love to get some feedback on whether you think this is Beautiful or Creepy?
Oh what a fun little set of twin babies these were. I met with them one afternoon at the park .
They are 6 months old and just getting comfortable sitting on their own. We used some little black buckets for them to sit in, and they were perfectly content. When we wanted to try some other poses, little boy, “I” decided he didn’t really want to participate any more, so we tried with little girl “I” and she was happy to pose. They both loved their big brother “D” so much, they were constantly trying to see where he was. I also loved how little boy “I” was reaching over and grabbing his sister’s hand. SO sweet!
I am so blessed to be allowed to spend some time with Sweet Baby S today. Baby S is only 9 days old today. I love holding babies, and she was a joy to photograph and to hold. She only fussed a little, but quieted down so easily. She didn’t really like to pose too much, but that’s OK, we were able to capture some pretty pictures anyway. I can still smell her wonderful, newborn smell. Sweet, sweet, Baby. Thank you for being my model today.
I had the opportunity to capture images of these twin 10 month olds who are are at the pulling up and cruisin’ stage in their life. They came along with big sis, “A” who was bright and energetic and happy to pose. They all had bright beautiful eyes, and such happy smiles. It was a little cold that morning, but we made it work!
