From the moment you’re told there’s more than one heartbeat, the entire experience of pregnancy, birth, and parenthood shifts. It can sometimes feel like your life becomes a sideshow, and for good reason.
Parents of multiples experience parenthood differently. Some describe it as equal parts magical and the most difficult thing they’ve ever done. Parents of multiples are part of an exclusive group, chosen to embrace both the beauty and the challenges of growing, birthing, and raising multiple children at once. To celebrate the parents of multiples and capture some of the twin, triplet, and quad magic, we’ve collected some of the most incredible and adorable photos of newborn multiples.
I can’t even tell you how excited I am to share this quadruplets newborn photography session with you! I think we made a dream team!
Two pregnancies and four kids! How cool is that! This is just beyond cuteness. It was such a pleasure to meet this blessed family! Big sister was so cooperative and she loved to snuggle with her babies.
