rhys & nate

By this stage of her life Jade would have had about six photo sessions already, but with the boys i have only managed two. With the twins and Jade I just cant find the time! I am already sad they are out of the newborn stage... as far as photographing them goes anyway. Not sad they are starting to stretch their feeds out a bit longer. They will be seven weeks old this Australia day weekend and the time has just flown by in a blur of breast feeding and nappy changes.

I have been trying to find the time ( and the energy ) to do a mini shoot with Jade on location, but I havent quite figured out the logistics of it yet. And its hot.

( Nate is in the stripy blue and white hat, Rhys is in the brown and blue hat ) Speaking of Rhys he is cyring again, so its time for me to go and cuddle babies.

Although I am somewhat behind on posting as the boys are now just over a month old already, but with two newborns and a one and a half year old I usually have my hands pretty full at all times. I have only managed one photo session with them and even that was a struggle!

 The top five questions i get asked as mum of twins :

Are they identical?

Were they conceived naturally?
I think this is a bit of a personal question to ask somebody really, but yes, they were conceived naturally.

Are there twins in your family?
No. Finding out we were expecting twins was a huge shock!

Which ones which?
I think they look really different...

Did you have a cesarean?
No, i delivered the twins naturally at 37 weeks and they chose their own birthdate, although I would not have minded if they had arrived a bit earlier as I as having trouble even moving in the later stages of pregnancy.

and then the one i get asked all the time, "how do you cope?" and I asked a lot of my clients the same question when i was pregnant, and the answer was always the same. " you just do".
