4 Month Old Boy/Girl Twins, Emma & Brayden

This sweet family came for a portrait session recently, and you’ll be seeing more of them throughout the twin’s first year! I can’t wait see them growing.  I loved hearing about their personalities, and differences even at 4 months old.  What sweet babies you have, K family! Sometimes they were a bit more serious 😉
