Twenty fingers, twenty toes,
Two sweet babies with cheeks of rose.
Born on the same day, two gifts from above,
Lives entwined, two babies to love."

I had the pleasure of photographing Suzi and Jeremy's maternity session in Albuquerque's beautiful foothills with a stunning backdrop of the Sandia Mountians. Although it was ridiculously cold, both soon-to-be-parents were absolute troopers and braved the wind and weather with me.
I was excited to hear that they "definitely" wanted me to photograph their newborn girls. During their maternity session, the couple laughed as they told me about their complete shock when finding out that they were expecting twins! They actually joked with friends the night prior to "pray that there is only one heartbeat".
Of course, they were very excited to meet their precious twin girls. Although the girls came earlier than expected, Suzi and Jeremy would have to wait a little longer before bringing their girls home… The twins were due mid February, but born in early January and had to spend nearly two months in the NICU.
Needless to say, they were no longer "newborns" when their custom in-home newborn session took place. I arrived at their beautiful Northeast Heights home when the twins were a day shy of 2 months old. Being a mother myself, and having a daughter in the NICU, I understood the stress this family endured. I take great pride in customizing my newborn sessions and working with families so there was never a question of "IF" their newborn session would take place - only "WHEN" would be the best time for mom and babies. After all, newborn sessions should never be burden or a stressful experience. I strive on remaining flexible and keeping newborn sessions a priority in my calendar.
These twins definitely rocked their newborn photos! It was such a privilege to be able to photograph their newborn session. Thank you to the Oliver family for allowing me to capture these truly precious moments for your beautiful family! I look forward to watching these girls grow and photographing many more milestones for your lovely family!
