The weekend before last I had the supreme pleasure of traveling to Syracuse to meet Allison Rumble, a fabulous photographer and new mom to two of the tiniest, sweetest little girls I have ever seen.  Knowing how hard it was to photograph baby Jack after a very easy delivery, I couldn’t imagine trying to photograph twins after months of bedrest and a cesarean section.  I hoped that my schedule would allow me the opportunity to make the trip to finally meet Allison in person and to help her capture some images of her girls while they were still sleepy and tiny.  Avery and Emmy were monoamniotic twins, meaning they shared an amniotic sac, and were delivered at 34 weeks.  I met them on day 16 and they were weighing in at 4 pounds 5 ounces and 4 pounds 10 ounces respectively, and absolutely darling.  It’s quite possible that I might not ever meet such itty bitty people again and it was a joy to spend the day with them.

Allison and I are both fans of Carrie Sandoval and Brittany Woodall of Baby as Art, and this was my first opportunity to photograph twins since attending their workshop.  We tried to channel a bit of their amazing ability to show the connection between these little babies who began their lives as closely entwined as two people can be.  It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of capturing this sweet relationship, one that is already many months old.

I just love ending a session with a smile:).

Allison, it was just wonderful to meet you.  You are truly a beautiful person inside and out.  Thank you so, so much for sharing your perfect little ones with me–I loved every minute!
