Newborn Twins A & C.| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photographer

Twins are always fun to photograph. I travel to your home and bring the studio to you. The biggest challenge is getting them to sleep at the same time. I typically start with the sleepiest twin for their solo images while a parent is getting the other to sleep. Then I bring them together for sibling images, and finish up with the other twin’s solo images. I really enjoy working with twin families, and have so much respect for parents with twins! Having ONE newborn is challenging, so I can’t imagine what it’s like to have two!

Anthony & Cole are fraternal twins who could not be more different, Anthony is tiny and delicate, about 5 lbs and his brother Cole has about 1.5 pounds heavier. It was so funny to see the two of them next to each other! I just love how genetics work out with siblings sometimes.

After I finished photographing the babies, we moved on to the parent and family portion. There are lots of variations with two newborns that we’ll walk through, and I’ll assess your comfort level in how you hold them. Baby safety is the top priority , , so we won’t place babies in potentially risky positions even in your arms. I am always checking with you to make sure you feel that your baby is secure and that you have a good hold on them. We’ll be in constant communication during our time together about how you’re feeling and if you need a break to sit down and rest. Postpartum recovery is a process, and it’s normal to feel extra tired or to become a bit light headed after standing for a while. A six pound baby might not feel so heavy at first, but can feel like an anvil after ten minutes for a new mom.

Enjoy just a few of my favorite images from Anthony & Cole’s newborn session!

Best Year Yet| Jacki G. Photography| Family & Newborn Photography| Richmond, VA

I still find it mind blowing when I look at all these beautiful babies from last year! 2017 was an amazing year for me and I got to meet so many amazing families and hear their stories. 

So last year I photographed over  65 newborn babies…..65…..wow….I can’t believe it was that many! So many have been back already for their 6-8 month sitter sessions and so many booked in this year! I can’t wait to se everyone again. Newborn Photography is a passion that doesn’t fade with me. I find newborn babies so wonderful and mesmerising! They are each so different and it’s mind boggling that at sometimes just seven days old you can see their personalities emerging!

So here is to another busy year with my newborns – can’t wait to meet you all:)

I'm excited to announce i will be scheduling Christmas Tree Mini's on Nov. 26th & Dec. 2nd location TBD.  I have photographed at a tree farm for a few years now and would like to open it up to returning clients and new clients.  

Mini sessions are great for:

  • Families wanting a few posed and candid images for wall art in the home, Christmas cards, and to give as gifts to family and friends
  • Wanting a quick session
  • Children who are able to take direction or be bribed

Mini sessions are not good for:

  • Families with children who generally need a warm up period
  • Families desiring a lot more candid portraits during the session with activities
  • Families desiring a large number of images in their gallery to choose from
  • Families desiring a variety of poses/groupings within the family

Mini session are condensed sessions. This allows time for 2-3 variations of a family pose, a group pose of children, and one of the parents. If time permits, other variations can be included but are not guaranteed.
