When I first met these parents, I felt like we clicked immediately. We met over hot drinks and ended up spending over an hour together talking and laughing. At one point, Mom said she was kind of nervous about labor to which Dad immediately let me know that she had (literally) climbed Mount Kilimanjaro! This girl is tough! I was super happy when they hired me on the spot to photograph the birth of their twin girls.
When the big day came, it started as a slow induction. We were able to chat and giggle and family came in and out to visit. Our nurse was awesome, being a recent mom of twins herself, so she made sure to dispense good advice too. Once things got moving, they went fast. Before we knew it, we were taken down the hall to the OR for pushing (hospital policy). It was a small bright room, full of people to help with the birth (a team for each baby, anesthesia, the OB nurse and the OB himself). Pushing itself went faster than expected (hello, did I mentioned this mom was awesome?!) and soon enough, both girls were born quickly. Both girls were a fantastic size (5+ and 6+ lbs) and came out telling us all about their journey. It only took a few minutes for the parents to get to hold their precious girls. It was a beautiful birth and I was so happy to be a part of it!
