We moved to San Antonio in October of 2013 and immediately I claimed a part of the house as my home studio (details on that later!). I was, and still am, so in love with the idea of being able to work from my home. I’ve always said I’m a wife and mother first, photographer second. I can take care of my two little rascals, cook dinner, and finish editing all in one place. To be a stay-at-home mom is such a gift and blessing. ANY WHO, back on topic; now that I had my own space and was going to be posing newborns instead of lifestyle sessions, I needed more props and accessories. Done and done. Now? Well, now I needed a cute little bitty baby to model for me so I could show off my new things! I posted a model call and got a response from an expecting mama wanting pictures for her newborn twins! TWINS?! I was so excited, I had never done twins before. I had recently attended a newborn workshop and we definitely went over posing multiples, but I had yet to put my knowledge to work. Stephanie, the mama-to-be, was due in March, but was having the twins via c-section in January due to them being momo twins (look it up, it’s rare. and her twins are boys, even more rare!) January came and went, and the boys were released from the hospital and went home in February. Days later they became my little models and were my first newborns in my new home studio.
Even though it was twice the work, they weren’t too hard on me. Besides their little legs that they loved to stretch and keep stiff haha. These guys were just too cute and I’m so glad they were my first babies in my studio!
