Over the years I have been blessed to photograph many twins for their first birthday cake smash session! What a celebration for the parents as well, as that first year was more than busy! Some of the families who have come to our studio had been here for their newborn, but not all. With our new studio here in Charleston, SC we are rebranding to focus on 6 months, first birthdays and stylized child prtraits.
At Bella Marie Styled we have so much to choose from in our Client Closet for the babies. There is always something to coordinate for twins. We do suggest coming in closer to the 11 month mark so that your images can be ready for their actual birthday or for a birthday party. These darling dresses are handmade in Europe by the talented Handmade by Lululu. We have been buying from her for years and she never dissappoints!
Of course we have outfits for the boys! I know the girls always seem to be in the spotlight, but look how cute this little twin boy's romper is? This was made by one of my favorite baby venders ever ~ Mia Joy Studio in Canada. She is no longer making baby clothing, so I really cherish what I do have from her! I love the neutral colors that this mom chose for her babies! The colors are classic and teddy bears never go out of style.
For twins, some parentsbring two cakes and some choose to have one cake for the twins to share. Either is fine, as long as they coordinate. It is fun to watch any baby interact with their first birthday cake! All reactions welcome here in our Goose Creek studio! Babies may cry, they may wipe the icing on the floor, they may wipe the icing in their hair.... we welcome it all and prep our parents! We are capturing the memories of this first birthday milestone.
Sometimes babies dive face first into their cake! For me that's the best! Why not? So much fun to capture in camera. We are making memories!
Baby girl's outfit above is a confetti first birthday dress by the talented Cora & Violet. She is another favorite baby vender of mine whom I have been buying from for over 7 years. Her twin brother is wearing a soft romper from Arlo and Pine.
