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.

Two Become Four

This birth was quite special. It was the last birth I documented in 2016. It was the 30th birth that I had documented. And it was the first time I was documenting the birth of twins! Identical twin girls! TWO tiny little squishy babies for me to photograph. It was really adorable and so miraculous!

As always, here's a handful of my favourite images from the big day, and at the bottom of the post you can watch the full 6 minute birth story, which of course is a tearjerker!
