It means so much to me when my families that I have photographed over the years come back when they have another addition to their family!!

Loved getting to meet Miss Charley while her mom and brothers were visiting from Taiwan. What a doll!! It’s so fun to see a family that has boys finally get their girl and to see the similarities and differences. I can’t wait to see the whole family this summer!!

Ahhhh love these guys. Jackson makes me smile every session b/c he is so silly and he loves showing off for the camera (plus he can rock a pair of red pants!). Tristan still takes a bit to warm up and then when he does it’s all huge smiles and giggles :) This year we braved the mud for some Christmas trees and got so lucky with a beautiful evening.

Birth photography is AH-mazing. A twin birth is a whirlwind! I am so honored that this wonderful family invited me to document their first son’s birth (also a c-section) two years ago and I have gotten to photograph him over the years. Now getting to photograph their beautiful twins…I couldn’t have been more honored.

When I got the call (at o-dark-thirty) that it was time to head to the hospital all I hear her say is “I will try to hold them in… hurry!”. When I arrived, it was GO time, I just had enough time to get my scrubs on and grab my camera. Once we got into the OR it went so fast, so much going on, so many doctors and so little room to move! Their baby boy was out within 2 minutes followed by his sweet sister. The morning was full of happiness of having the babies but with a bit of uncertainty as their baby girl was having a hard time breathing.

It was decided that she needed to head over to the NICU for some extra attention and the family soon followed. Since we have been documenting their family grow over the years, this was such an important part of their story that I asked if I could come back and take some shots of them at the new hospital. I met up with them at the NICU a day later. It broke my heart to see them separated, to see her all hooked up and in her own room but so great to know that she was only going to be there a short while.  

Two weeks later I was back for their newborn session and  both babies were doing great!  storyboard0013 A Birth Story x 2 | Birth Photography | Portland Or. Birth Photographer| Laura Santos Photography
