Today’s post is all about twins! I recently took some cute twin portraits for a boy and girl (fraternal twins) in the studio for their 4-month milestone session. These two were actually really sleepy for the session but you can barely tell by looking through the images. I get the opportunity to take pictures of baby twins(click here to see an example) a few times per year and it’s always an exciting challenge for me as a photographer.
