Spring is around the corner here in the midwest but the morning of this family session the wind was FEROCIOUS so we opted to hop into the studio in O’Fallon and it ended up being absolutely perfect! While these twin girls are identical, their personalities are not and it was so fun to photograph each of their feisty traits. Typically during a 12 month session we laugh and reminisce about how wild and crazy the first year of a baby’s life is. In this case, we laughed REALLY hard because they had it twice as crazy. I don’t think they see it that way, though. The way they love on their girls makes it clear that they wouldn’t have it any other way.
As for the cake? Well. They weren’t super interested. Isn’t it funny how that happens? They brought two cakes for their two gals but they were both so delicate and more interested in painting with the frosting so I sent them home with one smashed cake and one unopened cake. So tell me-who’s the real winner there?! I’d say mom and dad! Anywho-all cake aside, it’s been a real treat getting to know this family as a family of four this past year. We already chatted about our plans to get together again in the fall but until then, these images will bring a huge smile to my face. I hope they bring a smile to yours as well. If you can’t get enough of them, I don’t blame you! Their 6 month session was equally as darling and can be found right here so no one will blame you if you need to jump back in time to get your fill.
If you’re inspired by this family session, let’s chat! I would love to serve you + your family while capturing your magic along the way.
