Three days before we left for a weekend in Kalamazoo, MI we received a text from Brad (the best man in our wedding). He was stating that his newborn twin boys were coming home from the hospital and ask if we were going to be in the Chicago area anytime this year to take their family portraits. We decided on an impulse to leave from Kalamazoo on Sunday morning head to Highland Park for their family portraits (a suburb of Chicago). After all the best time to photograph newborns is within the first few weeks of life.
It’s rare that we photograph newborns, but we loved photographing these twin boys. They are so calm around each other and are adorable beyond words. Their little coos and subtle facial expressions were beyond precious. In between the feedings, diaper changes, and cuddles with the twins we also got to photograph the twins older brother. He was excited to show us around the backyard and play with his dog. We were warned that it may be hard to get a good smile from him, but he had nothing but smiles the entire session. Shortly afterwards the entire family joined him outside for family portraits. To see the entire family interact with one another was delightful. Brad and his wife Amy are incredible parents. It’s amazing to watch them with their three boys! Even though they are now outnumbered they are cool, calm, and collected.
Huge thanks again to Brad and Amy for allowing us the opportunity to photograph their family and for the perfect excuse to head to Chicago. Enjoy!
Such a sweet moment of the entire family. We adore this image in black & white.
This picture makes us laugh and say awwww at the same time.
This photo is too cute for words.
