Quad Cities Photographer
When Marina contacted me to get family photos taken with her husband and twin sons I was beyond excited! I don’t get to photograph twins often so I jump every time the chance comes around. When I was little I had always wished I was a twin and am pretty fascinated by twins! I honestly don’t know why but I think it’s so cool! What’s even cooler is getting to hang out and get to know each person as an individual. Although twins may look a like, their personalities stand on their own! Watching and learning each personality has to be the best part for me during sessions! This goes for any family actually. The kids run the show and I’m ok with that!
We met at Kualoa Regional Park for such an amazing evening session. I love capturing the uniqueness of each family and always try to do so slightly differently. Every family is different. Some like cuddles, and others love to explore. Some families love both! I typically just get a feel for the family and let them lead the session.
These two adorable boys loved both the cuddles, kisses, and exploring! Toward the end of our session they were picking up the biggest branches- yes, branches! Not just sticks!
I had the best time with the Smith Family and only hope that they can cherish these special memories even after they have moved off island- which they are doing soon!
Here’s to beautiful sunsets but even beautiful people, inside and out.
