Hopefully your head is not spinning from the bouncing around from session locations yet. There is a reason I’m doing this. It is purposeful: in big part not to bore you with the same location a whole bunch in a row.
This post wraps up my Menlo Park mini sessions at El Palo Alto Park. It was an awesome one that I’ve been waiting at the edge of patience to share with you. It’s finally time!
It feels like 2014 has been a year of twins for me. I don’t know how it happened, but I’ll take it! I got to witness the birth of twins, photograph their newborn session, then two sets of twin siblings over summer for There With Care, and of course these two lovely ladies. I’m digging it and saying “bring on more twin siblings!” There’s a different relationship between twins that I see that feels … different. Sure I’ve seen siblings be best friends: but in the event of older/younger siblings I see a lot of respect & protection to round out the sibling experience. With twins it feel more of a balance & partner in crime. Still a ton of love; still a sense of “best friends forever”… but it is just different.
I loved working with the C family! I could tell some of the things that I asked them to do didn’t feel very natural at first, but they embraced it and responded with such honest expressions, that I still can’t get over it. I’m referring to the photos of D&D (aka Mom & Dad) holding each other while laughing. I can still hear their giggles in my head. I hope as they look back on these photos they do too.
Their daughters were incredibly awesome to be around and photograph: they were good natured, and the perfect blend between spunky and polite. I posted a very quick teaser of them peeking through mom’s arms, and this image remains on of my favorites to this day.
