Double the fun {Seattle area twin photographer}

Best Blogger Tips
Pin It I got an email from an "online friend" via facebook to see if I would be interested in doing a newborn twin session that she was going to 'gift' to the new parents. She said to me, "I don't know if you'd want to drive all the way to where they live though".
For twins?? Of course I would!
And how lucky are these parents that they have such a good friend who would not only pay for their session, but give them print credit too?
And how lucky am I that this is the second time this generous gal has used my services to buy sessions for her friends! The last time it was for this session.

So 50 miles away were 12 day old Lilly and Sarah. It was so worth it to drive a 100 mile round trip to meet these 2 beautiful little girls and their Mom and Dad.
The session time was about 4 hours, and you would think that within that 4 hour time frame, those 2 cuties would have been asleep at the same time for at least 5 minutes! No such luck.
When one was awake the other was asleep.....ooh the fun life of parents of twins!
I sure do give you guys LOTS of credit for handling them so beautifully.....and on only about 1 1/2 hours of sleep the previous night!

I hauled lots of props up there with me, only really used a few though. Their little heads were too small for even my newborn hats.
They did fit together perfectly into the old antique Coke crate that I brought. These turned out to be my fave shots.

And while I was doing an internet search of Coke slogans just for the fun of it, I found the Wikipedia site with slogans beginning from way back in 1886!!! Is that amazing or what?

So here's some of the one's I think go with these photos....
1937 - America's favorite moment
1963 - Things go better with Coke
1979 - Have a Coke and a smile
1989 - Can't Beat the Feeling

One more thing before the photos....
I thought it might be fun to further help out these parents with a little blog ♥ love ♥

Seeing how MANY diapers they went through, and how MUCH formula they use...... I wanted to make it even easier for them to get nice photos and extras with this session.

So I decided that I would give them a couple 3x3 mini accordion albums if the comments here reached 25. And if it reaches to 50, they will get a 5x5 book of proofs, perfect to use as a brag book.
So come on everyone, leave a comment and share this post with your friends and tell them to comment and share. Lilly and Sarah will love you for it:)

(your comment only counts once, and I will count them when their online gallery reaches it's expiration date)
