Lifestyle Newborn Session: Maxime + Cedric

Okay, so, remember the post from yesterday where I asked which was better, a family with three kiddos with twins as your first pregnancy, or twins as your second? Well, here’s the interesting thing (from my perspective at least), I got to see both sides of it within just a few days of one another. I had a session with toddlers twins and their newborn sister, promptly followed up with adorable Big Sister Mila who was more than happy to show off her new baby brothers, Maxime + Cedric. And although I still don’t know which is the better situation, I can tell you wrangling one toddler was definitely easier than wrangling two, haha!

Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn Session: Audrey

At the end of her baby girl’s session, Sylvie and I ended up chatting about what she thought the best way to have twins was – meaning, is it better to have them first and then follow-up with a third baby, or have one baby first followed by twins. And honestly, I don’t know the answer.

Ottawa Studio Twin Newborn Photography: Charlie + Lily

Ottawa-Twin-Newborn-Studio-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI’m not going to lie, I was equal parts excited and nervous for Charlie + Lily’s newborn session. Although I had done a twin session before, I was super nervous that maybe it was just a fluke that I got through that previous one on my own, or really at all. And then of course, Dave’s question of whether or not I needed an assistant didn’t really help since he asked it the morning of the session, like 2 hours before the babies were due to arrive (he was really just being curious and not trying to be critical at all). But as it turns out, these little cuties had no plans of making things too hard on me, and their session was pretty amazing, if I do say so myself!

Ottawa Arboretum Lifestyle Family Session: The Hatches

Ottawa-Arboretum-Lifestyle-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI sometimes marvel at just how small the world really is, or at least just how small Ottawa and the surrounding area is. I grew up in a small town and went to school in an even smaller area. So when I moved to Ottawa for school I had it in my head that I would likely never see people from my hometown. Thinking back, this logic makes no sense whatsoever. My hometown is less than an hour away from Ottawa, and I knew of multiple people who were coming to the same university, or one of the other post secondary schools in the city. But, nonetheless, it was the idea I had in my head, so when I just kept running into people from back home, I found it weird.

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Twins Zoey + Skye

Ottawa-Studio-Newborn-Photography-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-identical-twins-girlsEven after photographing the session, editing the photos and now writing the blog post I am still having a hard time believing that I got to work with twins so early on in my studio newborn career. And I am in even more disbelief of how well the session went. But what I have absolutely no questions about whatsoever is how insanely adorable these identical twin girls are! Zoey and Skye were such troopers during their session, and I am so grateful to have been able to capture these precious photos of them for their amazing parents.
