Noah and Lenny - Brisbane Newborn Baby Photographer
Lenny and Noah were a special session in the studio, born at 30 weeks they were photographed on World Premature Birth Day, November 17.
Lenny was first to drop off into a sound sleep, he's the smaller one of the two. His "big" brother Noah wasn't sharing enough in the womb and so Lenny didnt grow as much as his brother Noah.
While Noah settled to sleep I photographed Lenny alone, which I think is an important part of twin sessions. These little guys are each their own person as well as part of an incredibly special set.
Despite Noah being noticeably larger than Lenny, these boys are identical twins, which means that one fertilised egg split into two at the very start of their life, and so the boys are identical from looks right down to their DNA.
With Noah settled to sleep we photographed the boys together for the first time, and this moment of two blissful babies sleeping side by side always gets my heart beating loudly, its just so amazing to see them snuggled together like this.
We did family photos next and their parents are so photogenic you would be forgiven for thinking they were models!
It was time to start unwrapping the boys and seeing some of their delightful details, fingers and toes and more. One of my favourite images we captured is where it looks like Lenny is telly Noah a secret! He was even partly awake at the time so it really did look like he was whispering to his brother.
We unwrapped them further and attempted the "twin pose" where they mirror each other while snuggled, however with Noah so much bigger than Lenny they didnt line up exactly, but it was still super cute!
Their mum had requested a specific image of their faces side by side on a poser, so that was next up - and it really shows how different yet similar they are!
The last set of the day we did was in a gorgeous set of clothing that their Nanna had sent them from overseas. The boys must have liked it too because they were both so smiley!
As Lenny was set back into the car seat to go home, I quickly did a set of Noah by himself. He was wide awake from having his clothing changed but he was very content. In fact, he was more than content - he was pumped! This is, hands down, the BEST newborn smile I have photographed and I think it will be a hard one to beat!
The best part? His mum said she gets those giant beaming smiles from Noah all the time, isn't that just amazing!! My heart would explode if my newborn babies smiled at me like this!
