Professional family photography NYC – Twins!

UPDATE: since I wrote this post in June of 2015, I’ve worked with many more sets of twins. It’s been a blast, and I feel so lucky to continue to work with such great kids. Thank you! I can’t wait for more.

I’ve updated this post with new images, and will continue to do so.

Here’s what I originally wrote:

I was editing my shoot of  this wonderful family with five sons, and it occurred to me that their twins (below) are the fifth set of multiples I’ve photographed in the last year. How neat!

I’ve really enjoyed photographing twins, and would love to do more. If you know any twins or triplets (or parents thereof) who might want portraits please pass this along – I’d really appreciate it!

Anyway, I’ve always been intrigued by twins. There are lots of interesting facts about twins (for example: did you know a woman can have twins with two different fathers? It’s extremely rare but possible) but I think what’s always captured my imagination most is the closeness and intensity of their bond.

Of course, this is mostly just my assumption, I’m sure many sets of twins are no closer than typical siblings but I suspect twindom comes with its own set of perks and challenges. Maybe it’s because I love my sister so much, or maybe I’m just a raging narcissist and wonder what it would be like to have another “me” around, but I’ve always wanted a twin.

I had such a great time working with all of these families. Here’s a quick retrospective of the other twins I’ve worked with recently.

I can’t wait for more!

Here’s an exciting update, I just photographed a set of triplets. These three hilarious, beautiful sisters and I had a dreamy shoot.

Danny & Sonny have the distinction of being the first identical twins I’ve photographed. I’m proud to say that I could easily tell them apart by the end of our shoot. They were SO much fun, and you can see their portraits here.

Here are Ned and Leslie at Tod’s Point in Greenwich, CT. They brought their parents and their stuffed dogggies, for a family mini-shoot in the fall. Look at how merry Leslie is – you wouldn’t know she was feeling under the weather. I love this hug from Ned.
