Twin Birth + Welcome Home

{birth story}

If it's not their first born, then it's not uncommon for parents to want their children to witness the birth, or be there soon afterwards to meet their new sibling, or in this case, siblings! But sometimes it's just not possible. Either it's a c-section or the birth happens in the middle of the night, making it tricky for children to be present. Many of these families add a Welcome Home session. Which means I will meet them at their home as they arrive from the hospital or as the grandparents bring the kids back home, so I can capture those moments where siblings (and/or other family members) meet the new addition(s)! That's what I did with this family!
Scroll down to see some of my favourite images from this birth and from when the siblings met, and don't forget to watch the full Birth Story at the bottom.

Adelaide's First Roll of Film

Adelaide got a toy film camera for her birthday and she was so eager to use it. Since it was a toy camera that had no flash and required no batteries, we had to wait for a sunny day. A few days later was gorgeous! It was +14C in early December. So we went to the park and then took a walk down the path. I snapped some photos of Adelaide with my Pentax K-1000 as she snapped photos with her pink plastic Barbie camera. Scroll down to see Adelaide's collection.

***The pictures you are about to view were taken by my 7 year old daughter Adelaide Von Bargen.***

You must view these images with a more artistic eye. This camera is completely manual meaning she has to wind the film between snapping pictures which resulted in some magnificent double exposures. With a plastic toy camera also comes beautiful light leakage creating perfect flaws in the images. I am completely in love with these pictures. And I have just stocked up on so much film, so there will be much more to come!
