Twins!!! My favourite!! Being a twin, I really do have a soft spot for those that grace our Melbourne newborn photography studio. What a blessing it was to have Galani call to see if I could photographer her twin girls Diamonda and Konstantina. Whist we had our pre consultation I discovered that Galani and her husband had been trying for 8 years for their baby girls through IVF. This struck home for me, as my brother and I are the first fraternal twins born via IVF, my parents tried for nine years to have my brother and I so can only imagine the world wind of emotions they have both endured over the years. It was in this moment I knew I had to do my absolute best for this wonderful family.
Galani thought she missed the newborn photography stage as Konstantina and Diamonda were already 8 weeks old. Yet If you know me well, you will know that I love a challenge and I believe every family deserves to have the opportunity at having newborn images. I never promised anything but guaranteed I would do my absolute best! When these delicious twin girls Diamonda and Konstantina arrived for their Melbourne newborn photography session, I was blown away at how amazing they were! We achieved the best of both worlds! Asleep just as a newborn and awake as a 2 month old! GOLD in my book! It was fate that we were meant to meet that is for sure. A bond I build with my IVF families is a bond I truly treasure, hearing the stories these incredible woman have been through is nothing short of amazing! They are brave, beautiful, caring, compassionate, generous, and most of all inspiring. Most of the time they hide the emotions they endure along their journey. Being able to see the love they have in their eyes knowing that journey was worth every emotion when they hold their newborn in their arms is a feeling you can not describe, a true honour to witness.
Bring on our next Melbourne family photography session where I get to see how much these beautiful twin girls Diamonda and Konstantina have grown. x
