Heit Twins

These are some photos that I took of my co-worker's new twins. They were about 2 weeks old at this point, so we weren't able to get those cute posed shots that some people get. Newborn photography is DEFINITELY not my forte. There are some people that really have a gift for that, but my talents are elsewhere. I think these still turned out well for documenting this fleeting moment in their lives. Babies grow up so fast!

Meet Leila and Allie Kate. Allie decided to be awake the entire time, so she's always the one with her little eyes open. Leila, on the other hand, slept through the whole shoot! I really enjoyed getting to hold them and play with them. I think 0-6 months is my favorite age for kids. I'm sure my opinion on that will change when I actually have kids :)

That last shot is one that I entered to a contest with JPG magazine. Here it is on the site: Twice Blessed. I don't know a lot about the contest, but I'm crossing my fingers that I win! My entry is a little cliche, so I may enter another photo as well that's a little more of an abstract interpretation of the theme ("beginnings"). 

That's all for today! We're in for a long night of storms, plus I just started getting a cold. I just hope the storms pass quickly with minimal damage so I can get some sleep!
