When you have twins, you’ll likely receive more than your fair share of advice and comments from family, friends and even strangers. People will want to know if they are identical or fraternal, how you manage two babies at once and whether or not twins run in your family. With all the inquiries, it’s nice to have a time and place all your own to announce the special arrival of this pair. With twin birth announcements, you get to choose the style, photos and information to reveal to the world.
If your family has been blessed by the arrival of two at once, you
have many unique adventures in the next several years, from double
strollers to twice as many hugs. When it comes time for newborn photos,
consider calling in some backup to make the day go smoothly. An extra
set of willing hands, be they grandma’s or just a friend’s will surely
find plenty to do during the photos. Keep the room warm so both babies
are comfortable during the session. Consider these other tips for a
successful photo shoot:
• Schedule early for the best availability
• Choose neutral colors, but avoid black and white
• Feed the babies about 30 minutes prior to the session
• Find a sitter for older children
• Make your bed for those cozy family shots
While many newborn photographers suggest taking photos within the first two weeks after the birth of a child, don’t fret if your twins need a few extra weeks in the hospital. Darling poses and props make beautiful pictures possible at any age.
You will likely want to enlarge a few newborn shots for the nursery or other rooms in the house. Canvas prints are a great medium for displaying tiny fingers and toes and work well in any home. Consider preserving all your favorite shots with a custom photo book. The kids will love flipping through pages of their tiny selves for years to come.
