I was so thrilled last week to get an email from fellow neighbor Lisa Wagner with a special request. She was seeking an on location photographer to come take holiday photos of her family including her newborn twin girls.Â Because these little ones were premature they are on strict orders to remain at home until the flu season passes.Â Amazingly our schedules aligned so I was able to do the photos while grandma, grandpa, and great grandma are in town for Thanksgiving which made this session even more special.
We spent a lovely morning at the Wagner household and I was very impressed with how after moving into the house only a month ago Lisa had already managed to locate her holiday decorations and get many of them set up for today!Â It made for a very festive backdrop for our picture taking.
I want to thank the entire Wagner family for being so patient with me as I worked with them and their girls on my first newborn portrait session.Â I was hoping for some sleepy baby pictures, but these girls were wide awake and alert the entire time! In the end I am glad they were, baby Rachel and Elizabeth were beautiful models and I ended up with some really nice shots of these wee ones.Â
(Just don’t ask me which one is which. I am certainly glad their mom and dad can tell them apart!)
Wagner family, I hope you enjoy your session preview as much as I do. These girls are just precious and I had so much fun working with you all today. Thanks for all the ideas, help with wardrobe changes, posing, and props! I’ll be in touch after the holidays with the rest of your photos from our morning together. Happy Thanksgiving!
