Wesley Chapel and Tampa Child Photographer – Twin Birthday Portraits
Last Saturday I blogged an image from a Funtabulous Twin Birthday Session. I promised the mom I would post a few more sneak peeks before she comes in this weekend to view and order her images. How can I refuse when her daughters are so cute! I think photographing twins are my new favorite thing. I love getting the interactions between the siblings and being that they are the same age, they are doing the same sort of things, so it is really cute. It makes me want to have twins … well not quite, but close. LOL
As I had mentioned in the last post, I knew we wanted to do the cake portion of the session out doors. However, wind and heat would be our big challenges. Linda and I went to Publix to buy bags of rice to weight down the backdrop stands. (The background stands held up the pieces of flowing fabric you see in the background). Nothing would end a session quicker than if that fell over on the babies! Great thing about rice bags … you can eat them later and they are really cheap I also tried to weigh down the fabric so it wouldn’t blow so much in the wind … well that didn’t work as the fabric was flying throughout most of the session …. The wind outsmarted me. Luckily we were able to reset the fabric periodically and the flowy-ness added to the whimsical nature of the session.
It was hotter than you know what outside too. Mom and Dad kept the girls in the air conditioned car while we set everything up. I am sure it was quite amusing to watch us out there with a pair of scissors cutting down the really tall weeds Once we were ready to go, they brought the girls to the set. My biggest fear from the heat was either the balloons popping or the cake icing melting. I said a prayer to the guy upstairs before the session and lucky for me he answered and all went well!
I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. The images in the studio were a lot of fun too! I love the onsies that Heidi had made for the girls. Who can pass up a cute image of the diaper butts?
Thank you Heidi for bringing your girls to the studio for their birthday session. It was a true pleasure photographing them and meeting your family! I can’t wait to watch them grow. Enjoy your sneak peeks!
