Baby Portrait Session :: Twin Boys @ Six Months

Yesterday I had the pleasure of hanging out with the two of the most adorable little men I have met in some time. Baby boys C & L are the sons of Eric & Robin, who were given a Circle of Life Photography certificate as a gift from friends for a baby portrait session (this is an obvious hint/reminder that gift certificates make awesome baby shower gifts!! okay. done plugging now ;-) I am still in amazement at the boys' sweet dispositions and their ability to nap anywhere at the drop of a hat (I saw it happen~ seriously they can fall asleep anywhere, with very little fuss!)

While the boys are identical twins, I was happy to find out that they have enough physical differences for someone with a trained eye to tell them apart~ which helped me a lot in figuring out who-was-who after I got home and started going through the images. After a little dilemma over which ones to post...and trying a few different processing effects, here are the ones I was particularly tickled with... feel free to post a comment if you like one (or more) in particular and I hope you enjoy these little guys~ check out the adorable hats Mom found for them~ accessories like this make a world of difference in portraits and take super cute to over-the-top adorableness!

I know most Moms don't like pics of their kids with Nuks, but this stage
really is so short that it's wayyy cute~ both now and years later!


  1. What a beautiful family :) Those pics are priceless and the boys are precious!!!! Those hats are adorable.

  2. Awe...These pics are absolutely adorable. Makes us miss them sooo much! Love You Guys


This is where you can post your thoughts about the pics! If this was your session, feel free to comment or describe a little bit about your experience. If you're just checking out the post, do you have a favorite image? Thanks for sharing ;-)

Giving Back~ Organizations supported by Circle of Life Photography

In giving back, Circle of Life Photography's main goal is to help those experiencing extreme poverty and nourishing them with food, shelter and spiritual guidance. Education is a big part of helping people learn how to help themselves and change the downward spiral of poverty for a better future for themselves and their children. Locally, a more tangible way of giving back is through using my photography gifts to serve others who are experiencing crisis (see NILMDTS and Pillows of Love.)

Compassion International~ Haiti's Child Survival Project

In 2011-12, Circle of Life Photography makes a monthly $30 donation to the non-profit organization, Compassion International, whose goal is to change Haiti through the rescue, nuture and discipling of children during the critical early childhood years.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation (NILMDTS) gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart for families overcome by the grief and pain of the death of their newborn or infant. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives. I am an active NILMDTS volunteer photographer for Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Lancaster Women & Babies Hospital.

Joni & Friends Family Retreat

I am honored to be a volunteer photographer at the Joni & Friends Family Retreat in the Poconos (Spruce Lake Retreat) for a week each summer (click here for past blog post.) Joni & Friends seeks to serve as a ministry of outreach to people with disabilities and their families across the US and around the world. Families from around the country attend Family Retreats seeking relaxation, encouragement and a time to strengthen their family.
