Top 5 Tips
Twin baby photography, my 5 top tips.
Twin posing for newborn baby photography needs planning. I usually have a shoot list created for my client after having an online or phone consulation. This with incorporate any styling wishes, which props and blanket colours to be used.
Remember with Twin baby photography every baby pose the larger twin should be placed in position first.
Try to get some single images of each baby, per pose. Think about hands, if the babies can be tweaked to eithe cuddle, hand touch, or even look like they are in conversation. It gives the images more emotional connection.
