Abigail and Charlotte | calgary twins portraits

Little Abigail and Charlotte made their appearances in to the world a little bit early and had to spend some time in the hospital before getting getting to come home.  Because of this they were already a month old when they had their portrait session.  I was a little nervous going in to this session because portraits with twins can sometimes be a little bit tougher than with one baby.  When Jenelle and I arrived and found there  was no power (Okotoks) I started to panic.  How do you keep two one month old babies warm without being able to plug in a little heater?  Dad saved the day with a rechargeable power bar that we could plug in to for a short period.  Thank goodness!  We warmed things up and unplugged and hoped for the best.  Thank goodness Jenelle from Beauti Photography in Cochrane was there with us to help out!  I think that helped me to stay calm as well.

The good news?  The power came back on shortly after we started shooting.  I was soooo grateful!  I think we all were.

Charlotte and Abigail are tiny identical girls and there is only 1 pound difference between them.  What a difference that makes!  I can’t wait to see what they will look like when they are a little older as right now it is so easy to tell them apart.

Mom and Dad were awesome and you can tell that after only a month they are already seasoned parents and just kind of go with the flow.  Nothing fazed them… nothing.  I’m not going to go in to much detail but I’m thinking that Dad may have needed a shower by the time we were done.  He was super cool about it all.  That’s a Dad of twins for you!

Enjoy your sneak peek!
