Mama, Mimi and the twins

You guys know me, I always post too many favorites when I take pictures of twins. I just love them – and these two girls were just too much fun.  They were both born tiny, back in mid-November, but came home from the hospital just around the new year.  Now they’re three months old and getting bigger every day.  And they have two times the cute grins, two times the cuddles with mama and Mimi (namesake!); it’s just the best. And my very favorite? The one where the eyelines (the invisible lines that are created by the direction the people in the picture are looking) are crossing – Mimi looking across and Mama looking across, and the babies meeting the eyes of the person who’s not holding them.  I mean, come ON – how fantastic is that? Oh, and then we have the grins – don’t even get me started. The one on one shots are wonderfully sweet too – Mimi holding her namesake and Mama loving on little E.  I adored meeting you girls, thank you so much for inviting me.

Wide open, at six months

So I never say I love the everyone looking at the camera and smiling picture – I always take this one, but I rarely mention it as my favorite.  It’s a gimme – you know? I mean, you want it, for the frame, for the grandparent gift… but it isn’t the most artistic shot, so I rarely adore it the way I adore this one. But this one? It is awesome.  Where, oh where, did little Miss M get the idea that opening your mouth is part of smiling for the camera?  Can’t imagine :)

But this six month old sweetheart was just perfect.  I got to meet her last weekend and she kept me smiling the whole time. The closeup of her fingers in her mouth kills me.  I also really like the one where she’s looking at herself in the little mirror.  And the one where her mom is totally cracking her up with a silly face is just the best.

Wonderful to see you guys!

These pictures do a wonderful job capturing the beauty of this growing baby, her large bright eyes, alert expressions and smiling reponsiveness in the playful interaction with 2 parents who are clearly involved in a “love affair” with her. Great photographic work !

Oh my, what sparkly, sparkly eyes!!

Thank you so much for sending me to this blog.


Love you,

We’re talking a lot about bellies around here…

You know what’s fun? Showing up at a family’s home after I’ve done maternity pictures for them, and getting to meet the little person who’d been inside that belly.  Even cooler? When I get to do it again a second time.  I got to visit with 20 month old E this past weekend because his baby sister is arriving soon, and I’d taken pictures of his mama’s belly when he was in there, too.  Super cool.

There are so many here that I love – when he lifts his shirt to show us his belly… (we seem to be discussing bellies a lot around here, wanna see mine?), his kiss with his mama, his hand and his feet and his hugs on her belly… the list goes on.  Enjoy :)

Wonderful to see you guys again!
