Newborn Twin Brothers Ethan & Eli | Clarksville Newborn Photographer


Newborn Twin Baby Boys These twin brothers stole my heart and the public spotlight more than once over the past few months.  Considering that their mother and father were both soldiers in the Army and served together in Afghanistan, I should have expected these precious little “military brats” to take charge and steal hearts along the way.  Born micro-preemies, the boys were 9 weeks old by time they graced me with their presence.  Even so, they were each approximately 5 lbs at the time.  Tiny!

To honor their dual military parents, we incorporated Mom & Dad’s Uniform Shirts atop the separate tiers of a miniature bunk bed.  The setup proved to be not only meaningful and PERSONAL to the family, but also a big hit with the public.  BEST NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHERS featured the image of the boys on the bunk bed on THE BLOG and their Facebook Fanpage on December 2nd, 2012.

This image was featured at BEST NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHERS as well on December 29th, and proves to be a favorite image for many (including me).  I plead the 5th on which brother this is though – I refuse to play favorites!

Since the boys were photographed in MOvember {November} and have a grandfather with a famous ‘stache, we decided to run with it and photograph them supporting the cause as well.  It became another little personal touch that tells a story about their family, which is an important part of what I strive to give each client.  Here they are pictured with their Grandfather:

Twin newborn babies and their mustaches for MOVEMBER

Apparently the newborn ‘stache picture was appreciated by more than just the family it represented.  Plenty of giggles and comments came about, and BEST BABY PHOTOGRAPHERS shared the picture on their Facebook Fanpage on November 28th.  How fun!

Being the middle of the holidays, we put together a very fitting Facebook Timeline Cover for Mom & Dad too – it still makes me chuckle 🙂

Silent Night?  Yeah Right!  Newborn Twins

When Daddy & Mommy were deployed together in Afghanistan, Daddy gave Mommy a teddy bear lovingly named “Beans”.  How appropriate that Beans be photographed with the boys now!  I wonder what will become of Beans once the boys are old enough to realize there is only ONE Beans?  I think we may have to check back with the parents in a few years to find out.  Until then, they were perfectly content sharing him in sweet slumber.

Here are a few more favorites from our time together, including this adorable shot with tiny little newborn baby fedora hats from Kasey’s Creations!  (She makes the infamous little newborn Army caps as well).  You can follow her on Facebook too if you like, tell her I sent you!

All in all, it was a wonderful session!  My dear friend Jasmine over at The Jazzy Peony Prop Shop assisted with the babies, stop by her Facebook Fanpage and give her some love if you get a chance!

Last but not least, I must include the obligatory sleeping parent out-take that so many of you love.  With twins, I expected Mom to be knocked out much sooner and for much longer, but I will take what I can get 🙂

Last Day of MOvember, Newborn Baby Style! | Clarksville Newborn Baby Photographer


newborn twin boys wearing mustaches for movember

I have to admit – this was the first year that I heard of MOvember at all.  The month long event takes place each November and involves men (possibly some women?) growing out and sportin’ moustaches to “change the face of men’s health” and raise awareness about men’s health issues.  A handful of clients showed up to their sessions this month with new (and temporary) moustaches for the event.  It was fun to see the participation spread to people of all ages.  When newborn twins Ethan & Eli came to visit me for their newborn portraits, I was tickled pink to learn that Mom brought along a few costume type moustaches for the baby boys to wear.  She explained that her dad was an infamous man known for his ‘stache, so she wanted to photograph his grandsons rockin’ their very own.

I’m not sure about you, but I can already see the resemblance!  Apparently the newborn twin boys’ picture was a hit because it was featured over at Best Newborn Photographers | Baby Pictures this week too.  How fun!  I can’t wait to share the rest of Ethan and Eli’s twin newborn portraits with all of you.

Did you rock a ‘stache for MOvember too?  Show your support in changing the face of men’s health, and share your moustache picture on the Facebook Fanpage wall today!

Little Patriots – Fort Campbell Newborn Twin Photographer


I had the honor of photographing these two little sweethearts today.  Ten days new and just as perfect as can be – they barely made a peep throughout the entire session.  They were born into a military family, and being so close to Independence day, I found it fitting to really deck them out in some American pride {loooove this hat by Kasey’s Creations }.  It’s no wonder that they were so resilient today – military children learn some pretty amazing coping skills from birth apparently 😉

America – home of the free because of the brave (and their families)

A big thanks goes out to Jackie of Photography by Jacqueline for assisting today!  I love having wonderful photogra-friends here 🙂
