I first met Henry and Jimmy long before they entered this world when I had lunch with their mama. She had just found out she was pregnant and said she felt nauseous. Me, with 3 kids, said, “You’re 4 weeks pregnant. It’s in your head. Or it’s twins” and then I laughed and laughed. So I was pretty shocked when a few weeks later, I got a text from her to the effect of “It’s $*%&(ing twins”.
Henry and Jimmy came into this world a lot sooner than planned. They were so fortunate that their NICU stay was minimal and they did not experience the setbacks many other children born at the same gestation have - but that doesn’t mean it’s been an easy path. After their first birthday cake smash, their mom decided to have a portrait session every year for their birthday - and to include their NICU pictures with it. I love this tradition and I am so honored to have been able to capture it.
