Newborn Twins | Eden & Ivy | Greater Toronto Area Newborn Twins Photographer
OK, I'll admit it...my heart always skips a beat when an inquiry comes our way for photographing newborn twins...there's just something about being in the presence of twin babies that feels a little bit magical!
When I first met Eden & Ivy's parents, I sensed right away that we'd be a good fit. They were both super relaxed and down to earth, despite the fact that in a few short weeks, with the arrival of their twin babies, they'd be parents of three girls under the age of 16 months (deep breaths, deep breaths!!)! They were looking for a vintage, rustic and down-to-earth photography style for their babies, which aligns perfectly with what we offer!!
At Waterson Photography, we'd best describe our newborn photography style as vintage and timeless with a touch of whimsy. But we rarely know exactly what that whimsical touch will be, until we meet our little clients. In the case of Eden & Ivy, however, our touch of whimsy quickly became apparent. You see, Mom and Dad dropped by our studio a few weeks before the babies were born, to take a tour and say hello. It was such a great first meeting! After learning that Dad hailed from Huntsville, Ontario, and was an avid outdoorsman and hunter (with his own collection of antlers, no less), we agreed that we had to incorporate antlers into the babies' newborn session. So we made this happen...and we completed the vision with custom-made newborn bonnets, which had beautiful pink flowers and their very own teeny, tiny antlers on top! Could it get any cuter than this???
Because they are so identical in physical appearance, we colour-coordinated the babies during their newborn session...Eden was photographed in purples and lavender tones, and Ivy wore pinks. That's Ivy on the left and Eden on the right (see how easy that is?)!
Both babies, weighing in at just over 5 pounds each, slept like little champs throughout their entire session. This made our work easy and fun (I send out a big thank you to Lyndsey from Elle Marie Photography for assisting with this session). We ALWAYS have an extra set of hands - ideally another newborn photographer who understands the intricacies of newborn photography and posing - when we have twins or triplets in the studio, as this ensures the safety of the babies while being posed (and it gives us another set of hands when baby snuggles are needed).
Eden & Ivy also have a gorgeous big sister, Willow. Sporting dangerously cute dimples and bright blue eyes, Willow is an absolute delight, with a personality to match. At only 16 months, she's already an amazing big sister to her tiny siblings, and we can only imagine how strong their bond will be as these beautiful girls continue to grow.
We can't wait to see these lovely little girls again for their Milestone Sessions!
