Greta + Piper : Minneapolis/ St. Paul Newborn Photography

Remember this fabulous family of three that I visited earlier this year? You can see them (pre-babies!) here.

Only a few weeks later, they added TWO sweet-as-sugar baby girls to their family! When I got the note from their Mama announcing their arrival, I shrieked with delight and happiness. Greta and Piper are utterly adorable and their personalities were already apparent at two weeks when I met them for the first time. Greta is more quiet and reserved, while Piper definitely lets you know she's around! As her Daddy said, "she's a Piper for sure!"

Although I knew I was about to see two girls instead of the usual one newborn, my heart still skipped a beat when I approached their crib and found TWO babies in it! LOVE LOVE LOVE. I couldn't wait to get my camera out - I was ready!

These girls stole my heart instantly - this first image completely inspires me and reminds me why I love this "job" so much: the first love we know in life comes from our family. Greta and Piper will forever and always be linked to one another and as daughters, sisters and friends, they'll always have the other around to love and to grow with. My heart soars when I think about all that lies ahead for them. And I'd be lying if I said I wasn't partially jealous - I always wanted a sister! (but to cover my bases, I really really love my brother!)

Greta is already such a willing subject and excellent listener - she fell asleep almost instantly, while Piper kept an eye out for me and proved to be pretty sneaky! Kate and Tom will definitely have to be on their toes with these two around :) And big brother Will? Adorable as always and you can tell he loves his baby sisters so much, even if he wasn't quite able to tell them apart just yet.

To Greta and Piper - thank you for being my first-ever newborn twin clients! You're gorgeous and sweet and I can't wait to watch you grow into lovely young ladies. Watch out world - this is an unstoppable team!

  1. Oh my gosh, this picture are just way too precious! I love the ones with Will in them, especially the one of him with the two girls on either side and the one of the two girls where it looks like they're holding hands. Gorgeous. Brought tears to my eyes. :)

    PS: So glad you're doing this full time now- what a gift to the world!
