Everything is twice as fun when you are a twin!  This includes your Senior Portrait Session.  Each year I am blessed with twins as Senior clients and each time, the session is a little different.  Some twins want their sessions on different days which makes the sessions just like any other Senior - totally focused on their individuality.  But sometimes, twins want to combine their sessions into one big day.  This is ideal for getting images of each twin in the same light and location as well as photos with the twins together.  Parents of twins appreciate this plan because it makes it easy to design a wall display from the session and a killer album that showcases what is similar, what is unique and the relationship the twins share.

For a recent twin Senior Session, we planned for one big day.  Hailey and Sarah are identical twins that share a very close relationship but also have different styles, personalities and spirits.  This session perfectly captured how even though they look alike, these sweet girls are each a unique creation!

This combined session began early in the morning when both girls headed to the salon for their professional hair styling.  Next, the girls arrived at the studio for their professional makeup application.  Following a quick lunch, the girls changed into their first outfits and we headed to Old Town Fort Collins.  Both Hailey and Sarah showed off their different styles as we scampered around Old Town, then took a break for ice cream before heading to a local nature area near the Cache La Poudre River.  I love how the day was laid back, letting the girls truly be themselves.  As the sun set (literally) on their session, we were all hungry and the girls headed out to dinner with friends - looking gorgeous with their hair and makeup still perfect!
