Newborn Twin Boys in Neutrals and Burgundy {Henry & Emerson}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Maternity & Newborn

Oh, my heart!  How sweet are Henry and Emerson.  I have a confession… this is my first ever photo shoot of twins!  I have to say I was a bit nervous but… wow, I loved it.  I thought newborns were fun, twins are even better.  (“Twice the fun if you will.” 😊) What I loved about it (besides all the cuteness of newborn babies) is that you can capture the connection and interaction between the two babies and the bond they share.  It is so amazing.  Ask their father Greg how long I patiently waited to get the shot of them holding hands… it was a little while, but oh so worth it.  So, bring on the twins!  I love photographing them.

Proud parents Jessica and Gregory did a wonderful job curating their photo shoot.  We chose to go with a color palette of burgundy, grey and blacks. (And a few creamy neutrals too.)  So, we did two styles for Jessica’s maternity session, a classy traditional black background in-studio set and an outdoor winter scene in a red dress.  Both turned out great and gave us a variety of looks and moods.

I loved that the black background studio images gave the feeling of a classic movie star.  It reminds me of the era of Frank Sinatra, in fact we listened to Frank Sinatra as we photographed that session.  Greg and I agree that Jessica has some great classic movie features.  And this next image is one that I am very proud of.  In my continuing research to become a skilled newborn and maternity photographer, I noticed I am drawn to old master painters, think of Vermeer, Rembrandt and Caravaggio's work.  The paintings with dark backgrounds and very dramatic light.  I also love the Renaissance attention to fabric.  As I study those images, I have been working on creating that style in my maternity studio work.  I think it gives maternity images a timeless class and I think I achieved it in this following image.  What do you think?

For the winter outdoor photos, I wanted to find something that complemented Jessica’s beautiful red hair.  I found some red colored brush that made for a great background for the photos.  And it happened to be a cold crisp winter day, so we had a big blue sky and bright sun to give us some amazing contrast and color in the outdoor images.

We finished the maternity session by inviting the whole family back to the studio in the evening to get a family photo with all the kids.  Jessica’s beautiful children joined in and we got this awesome image of her big loving family!  And I got the chance to photograph each child and show off their personality.  A bonus for me because I love photographing kids of all ages.  Look at her sons giving her lots of love, how sweet.  And those beautiful twin daughters!  This is Jessica’s second set of twins, you go mama!

And now beautiful babies Henry and Emerson have arrived!  How incredible, babies will always amaze me.  I was please to create several matching images of both boys to be able to design a beautiful album for the Healey boys.  I just love using soft cream backgrounds with babies, it looks so good on their skin.  And we brought in the burgundy reds too in order to coordinate with the maternity images.

We did the family photos in a soft grey to balance out the color palette and give variety.  Some of my favorites are these images where they are looking at the boys.  That connection is all about LOVE.

And here is a fun one to note, this is Jessica’s belly cast.  Her other kids helped her make a belly cast and we photographed the twins in it.  Greg had a wonderful idea of using blue and red fabric inside to mimic what would be in the womb (good to have a doctor’s perspective, I would not have thought of that.)  Isn’t this such a neat and meaningful idea!  Let me know what you think.  I would love to see more belly casts.  It seems like such a wonderful personalized prop.
