01 Oct Sasha & Willow are TWO!
Somehow it didn’t dawn on me until after they were actually born that having twin girls is a photographer’s dream come true – to play dress up with not one but TWO willing little accomplices, well it almost seems to good to be true!
The downside to having twin toddlers is that they are such a handful that I need TWO assistants to shoot them, so I only do about one “formal” shoot with them a year. So for that one shoot a year we go all out, and you’ll have to excuse me if I go a bit overboard with the number of images.. I just can’t POSSIBLY narrow them down anymore than I already have. Mommy goggles are in full force!
If you’ve made it this far, thank you for letting me share my three greatest joys on this bittersweet occasion of my last babies turning two. I am so, so proud of the little girls they are becoming but it’s all going a bit too fast for my liking! If only I could bottle up their sweet babyness.. at least I’ll have these images to remind me of this incredibly precious time.

HI Ariana, I love your blogs and photography, really very special. I have a 4 year old boy and 2 year old girl (a few months younger than Willow and Sasha) so I can relate to it all. Very little time for my own photography but seeing your photos of the children, there is no time to waste. Was wondering what lens you advice- did you shoot the outdoor (sunset?) photos with the telelens? Would you use that lens for most of your shoots?
I have the same camera, a 85 mm which is very sharp but wondering whether the 50mm (1,4) would be something I would use a lot (much cheaper than then 80-200mm)?
Also any tips on keeping them interested in posing? Malena just moves around all the time and Max has lost his interest in being photographed…(especially inside).
Anyway, thanks so much for sharing
