This mama of three, with another on the way, had a simple request for us—“I would love just one photo with all three kids together smiling!” Anyone who has ever photographed children professionally, or just tried to capture an image of their own kids, knows this is no easy feat, but we were ready to accept the challenge!
As parents of twin girls and a mischievous little boy, this family also had the same challenge that many families that come to us have—very few pics of everyone together. The kids were very affectionate with momma’s belly but it was hard to capture these tender moments. One fear that she had (which most moms are also afraid of) was that the kids’ patience when posing for photos would wear very thin, very quickly.
So we left the camera in the bag to start with and just played barbies and dinosaurs with the little ones before starting the session. They warmed up to us and in no time we were all playing games and having fun! It may have helped that Tony has a twin brother and Danielle has twin sisters, so we were able to connect pretty quickly.
We think the photos from this maternity session captured all the fun they had and we got every photo that mom was hoping for.
