What must it be like to be the parents of twins? As many twins as I’ve photographed over the years (and that’s quite a few), I’ve always wondered what it must be liked to be their parents. I wonder if the intensity is really double what it was like for me when I had my first baby. I wonder if it’s really twice and much work, twice as much joy, twice as much fun, twice as much exhaustion. I assume that it’s like being a parent for the first time – something one simply cannot understand until they’ve been there.
Twin photo sessions also make me think about how incredible genetics are, and these two boys were even more thought inspiring than usual. Each one was so completely unique, so individual from his brother. They spent many months together in the womb, but they clearly are their own little people with their own distinct features and their own unique personalities.
And, lastly, I think about something I think about often… the gift of having a sibling. It seems like having a twin would be the most special sibling gift of all… to have known each other from truly the very first moments of existence in the world – how could there ever be a closer bond? These two sweet boys will truly have been there for each other their ENTIRE lives… that is some sort of miracle, isn’t it?
