I honestly have no clue where to begin on this adorable twin newborn session! These boys brought a new-found joy to my life that I didn’t know was missing. From their darling bowties and news hats, to their Spiderman covers, these boys were both dapper and heroic.
The Simmons family came in to my life unexpectedly. I started training at Art of Fitness in Doctor Phillips in April of last year. Puja and Michael both train with one of the other trainers there, Matt. Matt and his fiancé, Sandra, had a maternity session with me in January and Puja asked about a newborn session. (If you haven’t seen their session, go check it out AFTER this one!) Her and her husband were expecting to adopt twin boys in early March and wanted to capture this precious time in their lives. Of course I said yes!
Ari and Kai ended up being born on February 18, 2018. They were premature and extremely tiny, but oh so adoring! Austin and I travelled to their home in the Doctor Phillips area for their session. As soon as I laid eyes on them, I was in love! I had never seen anyone so tiny! Along with their news hats, bowties, and Spiderman outfits, each boy had a little white bear hat and matching teddy bear. We incorporated grays and blues into their session as well. Everything was so big on them since they were premature, but that didn’t stop us!
Kai was wide awake and curious for our entire session, while Ari was sound asleep. Nothing was going to stop Ari from getting his nap on! They usually had the opposite personalities, so it was a change for Puja and Michael. They couldn’t stop admiring their new children and I was so honored to be a part of this moment in their lives. Babies, especially newborns, are so unpredictable, but that is life and what makes these sessions so special. The Simmons family booked a Grow With Me package which includes a newborn session, 6 month session, a one year session with a classic cake smash, and a family session! You will be seeing much more of these twins in the next year, so be on the lookout! For now, enjoy the handsome twins, Ari and Kai.
