These amazing little guys were born at 35 weeks, which is considered full-term for twins!
Congratulations to Scott and Janine for bringing such darling little babes into this World. They are so in love with Guillermo and Gregory that they are already talking about giving them a sister — or at least Scott is!
The Best Gift Basket Ever
At 20-days old, Gil and Greg look ever-so-cute in a little basket.
We did the shoot at Tessie’s house (Tessie is Janine’s sister) and her livingroom wall happened to be yellow… as was the basket lining.
Together with the tan and brown bears, you’d think we had planned out all the details of this set.
Here are the fun-loving parents, Scott and Janine, who are enjoying their two gift baskets.
Here’s Looking At Me!
I must’ve taken 20 shots to get this one of them with their eyes open and looking directly at me. SCORE!!!
The parents are looking at the babies and the babies are looking at the camera. I couldn’t have dreamt up a better composition.
A “High Key” Family Portrait
High Key refers to a high contrast, bright (from behind the subjects) portrait.
This is simple to create in a studio, but we were in a house with very little natural light because it was raining and overcast outside.
To get this shot, I put the family in front of a patio door (the brightest area of the house) and I did the rest in post-processing. I looooooove the result!
The straight-out-of-the-camera image looks more like a silhouette of the family with blinds as their backdrop. Most people would discard this image from their gallery, but not I!
Even when I took the shot, I had a high key portrait in mind. And unless I lugged a lot of heavy lighting equipment to Tessie’s house, the only way to achieve this shot was in post-processing. Ahhhh, the power of Photoshop!
I’ll post a “Before and After” blog in the near future to show everyone some pretty cool transformations!
Guillermo & Gregory in the Buff
I love that the twins are completely awake, so you can see their gorgeous eye color.
Little did we know, they were looking all-innocent and sweet, but in actuality, they were peeing on my velvet cloth!
The Proud Parents
How peaceful it is to watch your babies sleep…
When I was going through my photos from today’s shoot and saw this one, I cheered aloud… all alone in the room… like a crazy photographer!
The babies are SMILING!!!!
At this age, they smile as a reflex, not socially, so to have both babies smiling simultaneously for a photo is like hitting the jackpot!
Doesn’t Janine looks fantastic? Who’d know she was carrying twins just 20 days ago?!!
