Twinsfest, the three month old edition

You know how you get to be part of these online parenting forums and the people there become your friends online and you wonder what it would be like to meet them? Well, when you’re parenting twins (perhaps even more so than singletons?), my sister tells me that the group of people in her “November 2015 twins” Facebook group are just such an incredible resource for her. I remember when I had my first baby how important my online group like this was to me — they were the ones I’d ask just about every age-related question and get so many helpful, relevant answers.

Well when my sister told me she was going to meet a bunch of the other parents and their twins from her online group the other day and would I like to come carry a bucket carseat and hold a baby, how could I refuse? A room full of babies? What makes me happier?

And then (seriously, I am not kidding – I didn’t think of it until) that morning, as I was getting in the car I realized I should bring my camera. Yes! Document this! Of course! Why didn’t I think of this before?

So here are a handful of photos I took on Saturday when these three gorgeous sets of twins and their mamas and helpers met up for appetizers, wine, and a delicious lunch.

Amazing dimples and grins for mamas abounded:


We had six sets of arms and six babies, but sometimes mamas and helpers had to get stuff done, man. (You know, make lunch? Take photos?) That’s the way it is with twins. Sometimes you just need to let them sleep where they land ;). I love this of D next to the wine glass and the half empty bottle!


At one point the boys even had entertainment from this fantastic great-grandma:


Look at this grin!


Oh those twinkling eyes:


Sometimes you’re not totally in the mood to pose for a photo with a crew of your besties, you know? These guys have a lot to learn before they join Taylor Swift’s group of friends and tweet about their #squadgoals while they walk the red carpet together for photos…


Most of the time there were arms enough to cuddle all – and everybody loved it.



It sure was a room full of adorable.


My niece and nephew were totally cool with the bouncy seats while I shot a handful of photos and their mom noshed some dip. Jack would like some of his mom’s dip, though…


Thanks for inviting me to your party, guys! Can’t wait to watch these guys grow up together. More photos next time, I hope!


Squeezing on that new sister

Because squeezing a nearly six month old sister can’t be beat. And check it out… in two of the pictures you see here, we get one of my favorite things: a surprise belly button sighting. Oh and dimples. Pinch me. Divine.

(Oh, and I had to include a few color ones here, too – because the leaves are just sooooo killer.)

I loved getting time with you guys, thank you for having me!

Dimples and a fantastic smile

This little 3 month old cutie blew me away on Sunday – she was just full of grins and her dimples were perfection. Even when she rubbed her eyes with the universal sign for, “Um, I’m tired, guys” – she still held it together and even gave out a few more smiles.

Wonderful to meet you guys!

Swinging, playing basketball… staying busy

Another incredible year for this guy. Nothing comes easy for him, but you really can’t tell when you spend time with him. He’s six now, and doing so well with his walking, swinging, playing basketball… I just can’t explain how impressive he is. He’s also super loving and having a great time with his fun parents.  I adore so many of these, it’s so hard to pick a favorite.  I’m a sucker for a good tickle picture, but quiet moments like the one where he’s sitting with his mom by the water laughing and looking down and mom is doing the same – the dimple there kills me.  I also keep going back to the one where Dad is handing him the basketball – it seems like the beginning of something :)

Wonderful to spend time with you guys as always!

He gets cuter every year…if that’s even possible! I am not biased or anything… :0)

Three on a hot day

It was warm on Tuesday, and we met up for pictures just about midday – but that didn’t stop these three.  They always have such fantastic energy, and I love this one of the three of them – dimples and all.  But I think my number one picture is the toes one, though.  I really think it’d look so cool printed huge on some wall in your house, Katie – color or b&w – either.  Love it.  The one in the wagon cracks me up, too – the three of them are making such different funny expressions.  And the more stoic ones of each of the kids – the non-smiley ones? I love those.  Eyelashes galore. And the one towards the end where S is crawling across the gorgeous dining room with the cool chandelier? Digging on that one too.

Really fun to see you guys as always!

It’s that time of year – Nursery School photo time!

So this is an old post – I might even back date it to January because I shot these guys on a cold day back then… but I’m finally taking the time to blog it because, come on – these expressions can’t be beat.

It’s the best when you can choose what you wear for school photo day.  Ski goggles? Why not?

Little brothers welcome :)

There’s something so sweet about the angle of this one – I love it.

DIMPLES! (she has great ones, under those poking fingers)

Loads of fun, as always! More info about shooting Nursery School photos (yes, email me, I’m happy to do this at your child’s school next January or February) is available in past posts… from 2011 and 2010.

Two under two, plus a bonus big boy

These guys are card carrying members of the “two under two” club, with a bonus 3 1/2 year old thrown in!  Busy, busy, busy.  And so much fun energy!

20 months old and 6 weeks old. So much love.

There’s something about the lines in this photo that I love.  The artwork on the wall and the bedspread kind of tie it all up in a nice bow for me, too.

Kinda love the mayhem in this one.

Love that dad made this face at/with J:

And so did Mom :)

Dimple :)

Really fun to see you guys as always!


Brothers, eight years apart

Big brother W is eight and a half, and his new perfect brother N was only seven weeks old when we took these photos a few weeks ago.  This means these guys are already fast friends, with little N already kicking W in the face with those strong little legs…

Killer dimples on big W:

He’s enjoying himself a ton with these guys:

Loving his mama:

Had a moment waiting while people put shoes on to go outside, and this guy seemed like he needed a new headshot:

I’m so honored you guys had me come out to celebrate N’s arrival, thank you.

As W tickles N’s foot with his hand in a cast… the expressions in this one just tell such a sweet story.

And lastly – I love Mom’s hand on W’s head here:

Swinging and dimples

Are you kidding me with the matching grins?  And he’s only 4 months old.  Wait, even better – she’s only TWO.  Love, love, love this.


Once we got outside this peanut hopped up on the BIG GIRL SWING (yes, you read that right) and proceeded to swing all the way up to the clouds, like the adventurer she obviously is.  Don’t you love how tiny she is against this huge swingset? Ringlets flying.

Wonderful to see you guys as always!

These pictures make me so happy. They really capture the fun and we can do anything of the R Family. Sweetest girls ever. If I wasn’t an adult, I’d beg them to adopt me.

Questa intervista di Cacciari, sotto la scorza del laicismo nasconde l’inquietante argomento del katechon che a lui sta particolarmente a cuore e non da ora (vedi il prezioso studio di Blondet “I fanatici dell’Apocalisse”). Secondo Cacciari (che definire laico è eufemistico) il katechon deve smettere di trattenere satana incatenato. Anzi, perfidamente Cacciari dice “contenere”… Avete capito?!

Hey, that’s a clever way of thinking about it.

Rolls, rolls, rolls, and even a DIMPLE!

Last Tuesday, just when I thought all I needed to get through the day were some squishy arm and leg rolls, this little ball of awesome showed up and killed me with his dimple. Come ON now with the cuteness.

Now I won’t bore you with my color commentary, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Let me just say… delicious.

Wonderful to see you guys!

How has no one eaten this baby yet?

Kate - July 26, 2011 - 10:01 am

He is just the absolute cutest! Wonderful pictures!

Linds - July 28, 2011 - 11:06 pm

Absurdly cute! Nice work, all around… baby, photographs, the whole package. I’m a big-time fan. :)

A lady joins the boys

It’s been a few years since I saw these guys – and since I saw them they’ve added a lovely lady to their brood.

She’s such a fun addition.

Don’t get me wrong, the boys still have a blast just the two of them…

But it’s fun to see how much they crack her up, too.

Sometimes everyone doesn’t quite jump at the same time.  But that’s OK, because this is pretty fantastic, too…

So fun to see you guys!
