On 15 March 2014, I held a Photo Booth Competition for Canberra and Region Multiple Birth Association members at their annual Fun Day event.  There were some lovely family and twin images and it was a touch decision for the judges. The winners were announced on 29 March 2014 – Grace & Peter ‘Jock’ and their twin daughters Myka & Zoe Today I met up with Grace and Jock and their family in their home to do their photo session. We got some lovely photos in the family home environment and also managed to get some with their two dogs.  Below is a snapshot of some of the fun we had and the images I got for them.

Photographing Twins Isn’t Easy – 7 Top Reasons Why

Posted in Articles, Blog

7 Top Reasons Why You Need A Professional Photographer Being blessed with twins, triplets or multiples is definitely a blessing, but it always comes with mixed feelings. No matter how prepared you think you are, you will be surprised how soon it becomes clear that nothing can actually even start preparing you for the joy you are going to experience or the demand on your patience, stamina and life. It is challenging enough to cope with one baby; with twins or triplets or more everything gets compounded multiple times. In A World Of Twins Photographs Are Memories Forever My mum used to say, “Children are gifts that we get to keep for about 18 years or so; and the time just flies away. Make the best of what you have, for as long as you have with them.”  This is...

Against All Odds

Posted in Black and White Photography, Blog, Featured, Fraternal Twins, Twin Stories, Volume 4 A World of Twins

Never say NEVER – NO means GO!! My last Adelaide photo session  was with Richelle her husband James and their VERY special 14 month old twins Evelyn Jean and Joseph Donald…and Minion their dog! When I heard about Richelle’s amazing story I was so excited to meet this amazing mum and her husband James and twins.  Richelle has not one but two medical conditions ‘Stiff Person Syndrome‘ and ‘Dopha Responsive Dystonia‘ and against all odds of being told she could never have children or carry to full term, Richelle wouldn’t take no for an answer…not only did she fall pregnant but with twins and to almost full term, 34 weeks and 2 days (6 weeks premie) no complications AND to her credit she even managed to have them naturally. Never say NEVER – NO means GO!!  Richelle you are an...

Double Delight – Groch Family

Posted in Black and White Photography, Blog, Fraternal Twins, Funny Twin Moments, Twin Stories, Volume 4 A World of Twins

WOW I thought one set of twins or triplets made me work hard, UNTIL…I met the Groch family from Gowler East in South Australia.  Sarah and Andrew are one of the many SUPER parents who have not one set of twins but two sets of twins, taking the twin dynamics to a whole new level!  Sarah and Andrew’s first set of twins born were Brooklyn and Jordan who are 6 years and then along came Grace and Anthony who recently turned 3 years.  So how awesome is that…to be parents of 2 sets of twins…simply amazing! As you could imagine their house is very busy and I couldn’t help but notice in their kitchen one whole wall decorated with their children’s artwork, awards and certificates of achievements – I could feel the children’s excitement and the parents pride when...

Ayva & Zachary

Posted in Black and White Photography, Blog, Featured, Fraternal Twins, Funny Twin Moments, Twin Stories, Volume 4 A World of Twins

I had the pleasure of meeting Kylie and her two gorgeous 7 year old fraternal twins Ayva Marree and Zachary Ryan (Zach) on my recent Adelaide twins trip.  I received a warm welcome and a little apprehension at first, quiet natural when a complete stranger enters their home.  After being shown around their home they started to warm up to the idea.  On reflection, looking back through the photos while processing them Zach was actually quiet the camera flirt…he made contact and interacted with me and the camera, even when I thought he wasn’t paying attention or looking I always got that subtle look acknowledging he was present!  We started warming up with a few shots in their bedroom. Photo 1:  Love this one, caught them interacting and being themselves with their favourite toy perched beside each of them....
