Lifestyle photography is such a fun way to capture images of a family! When mom contacted me about booking a lifestyle newborn session for her twin baby boys, I was excited because I do not often get requests for twin sessions. The Sylvester family was really excited to welcome Rowan and Rory to their family and to join big brother Camden!
When I arrived to their home, I immediately felt welcome as we walked around the house looking for the best spot to set up for photos. Mom wanted to use the twin's nursery, which was adorably decorated in a blue and gray dinosaur theme! The room had lots of great natural light, which was just what we needed for their lifestyle session. As Camden is just around 1 1/2 years old, he was a little shy so I took time playing with him and letting him get used to me being in his home. I encouraged Mom and Dad to sit on the floor with the boys and asked them to just play and engage with Camden and the babies so I could capture some of those real moments among the family. Camden, typical toddler, did not want to sit down on the floor so we let him roam around the room and play silly games. This was the perfect chance to capture those playful, silly expressions that I'm sure his parents love!
Next we moved into the parent's bedroom where once settled into their Mom and Dads's laps, the twins fell asleep. But by this point, Camden was definitely more comfortable with me and my camera so he ran around the room and crawled on the bed, giving the best smiles and expressions! As the twins were asleep, we decided to go downstairs to let Camden play with some of his toys. He played with his trucks on the floor while his parents looked on lovingly and Rowan and Rory slept soundly. The boys were napping well, so Mom placed them on a beanbag chair in the playroom while Camden showed off his golfing skills. Rowan and Rory were so cute together, sleeping and cuddling next to each other. I took this opportunity to capture little details, such as their hands together and their little toes peeking out of their denim overalls.
It was so wonderful capturing this time with Rowan and Rory at home with their family. Big brother Camden was so much fun and I loved how playful he was during the session. And lifestyle photography was the perfect type of session to capture life with a busy toddler and twin baby boys!
