I love photographing newborn twins, it’s double the cuteness! When photographing twins it can be scary that a lot more work is involved, a lot of the time there is but it’s so worth it! During a newborn photoshoot with twins I usually photograph each twin separately in each set up and then together. Hopefully when your photographing one newborn twin the other can have a feed and then fingers crossed they will go to sleep together to get some cute snuggly newborn photos. I quite often find when photographing newborn twins they comfort each other and help each other sleep. There are lots of wrapped and unwrapped poses you can do for newborn twins using props as well has posing them on a beanbag.
Things to think about when photographing newborn twins
You have a newborn session booked in and it’s twins….. Great 😊. Before the session you should try and plan a bit what you are going to do so you can be as prepared as you can. You want the newborn session to run as smoothly as possible so here is some tips for you for preparing your twin newborn session.
- Check with the parents if they want matching wraps/outfits to make sure you have what the parents will be expecting.
- Ask the parents if they will be wanting family photos so you are prepared for this as well. You can research different newborn family poses with twins
- Make sure you have a few props that are big enough to fit 2 babies in! A lot of bowls are quite small and won’t work for twins.
- You might want to think about getting someone in to help you. I actually don’t have a helper for twins but if it’s your first newborn twin photoshoot you might want some help.
Poses with props
The main two newborn props I use for twins are larger bowls and beds. There are a variety of ways to pose newborn twins in these props as you can see below. The bowls will be from above but you can use the bed to get a variety of photos from in front and above.
Poses with the beanbag
Posing newborn twins on a beanbag can sometimes be a bit harder as they often wake up if you are doing unwrapped poses after them being wrapped up nice and cosy for awhile. You can also do wrapped poses on the beanbag as well, so I usually start with these.
Newborn twins posed with parents
When you are posing newborn twins with the parents it’s not too different than posing them with one newborn. It can get tricky if the mum and dad are having separate photos with the babies, as it can be hard holding two newborns. It is possible though 😊
Newborn twins posed with siblings
When I am posing newborn twins with a sibling I often start with them posed on the floor looking up. This is a really simple and cute pose to do! If there is time and the babies and older sibling are still cooperating you can move onto some photos with some props as well!
