Do I really need to explain how stoked I was to shoot twins?
Their mother, Jessie, told me that the girls had just started discovering and interacting with each other. Sometimes one would look at the other as if to say, "Hey wait a minute, you're a tiny person too, hi."
And other times one would look at the other as if to say, "Hey wait a minute, Ima just eat your foot real quick k thx."
First Lucy ate Tessa's foot...
...and then Tessa returned the favor.
There was a whole lot of gnawin' goin' on.
Now, having experienced the challenge of caring for an infant, I was curious to see what it was like to care for two at once. While daddy was still sleeping, mom did the only thing a mother of twins could do: adopt a one-in-one-out policy.
So while one was playing with mom on the couch...
...the other waited patiently in the bouncy toy for her turn.
But once it was discovered that they were out of coffee, it was decided (okay, mostly by me) that it was time to wake up Dad so he could make a Dunkin' run.
And what's the best way to wake up Daddy? Why, with a pile of infants, of course!
So, Jessie scooped up the chillins...
...and then we had a baby dog-pile on top of Pa.
Soon after daddy went off to fetch the coffee (yay!) it was time for the girls to take a little nap. But no worries, filling in as entertainment for the morning was Rocko Yorko-Way. Loved by many...
...loathed by others (totally unbeknownst to Rocko).
After the girls fell asleep I was thrilled to discover that it was wash-the-dog-in-a-ridiculously-huge-bathtub time.
Once the girls woke up they spent the rest of the session playing.
...and their cousin/nanny Emily (the most enthusiastic nanny on the planet!)
My first twin shoot was just as fun as I'd imagined and I hope it's not the last. Thanks Yorko-Way clan!
