Now that the girls are closing in on being 4 months old, I find it an excellent time to share their "newborn" photo session. (can you hear the sarcasm flowing?)
Since the girls had a long hospital stay, and life was hectic for a couple of weeks after bringing them home, we didn't get these photos made until they were almost 6 weeks old. To our favor with them being preemies, size-wise, they more than acceptably passed for "newborn". We also used this time for our first family photo session and Christmas photo session.
As with our last couple of photo shoots, we relied again on Matt Copeland to capture this special time with our new little family. You can check out more of his amazing work here. He's recently moved to Nashville, so any of you in the area needing an amazing photog LOOK. HIM. UP. It'll be worth every penny I promise. Heck, if you're not in the area and just traveling to Nashville...it's a great city for family photos!
I have had every intention of getting some of these printed for gifts, but it's just not happened yet. To be totally honest, I have three of these on canvas in our house and one frame in the girls' room. That's it. One of these days...I'll get caught up in the photo department.
We did manage to get our Christmas cards out in the nick of time and used photos from this session for our Christmas Card / Birth Announcement. (You can see those here.)
Sit back and enjoy this photo overload...
Matt if you're reading this, thank you for the anxiety reducing chat at Blue Coast Burrito. (I maaaay have started freaking out a tad when the move to Nashville news posted on social media.) Nothing like reassurance over chips and salsa that everything is going to be ok! You were one of the very few people who knew so early about our twins news and our obvious choice for their first photos home! You sir, rock.
It really doesn't seem like that long ago when we had these pics made, but gosh, the girls have changed SO MUCH. I'm learning all too quickly about how "babies don't keep." It's heartbreaking but in the most joyous way possible.
