Those of you who know me, know that I love identical twins. I find them to be absolutely fascinating. Seeing two individuals who appear so similar visually but who have unique and distinct personalities is something that keeps me returning to identical twins. It is a subject that I have explored in my personal work dating back to my college years. So having the opportunity to document August & William was an opportunity I very much treasured.
We met August & William’s parents, Beth & Nate, back in 2008 when we photographed their very memorable wedding on September 13th of that year. While we have since photographed Beth’s cousin Jamie’s wedding as well as her cousin Julie’s wedding, this time it was about documenting the newest additions to the family. Beth & Nate flew in from Oahu where they live and Nate’s parents drove in from Utah, for all of us to meet in Portland with Beth’s parents for a fun afternoon at Cathedral Park. The boys got to run around, splash in some puddles, pull mom’s hair, scratch dad’s face, make a big mess, and be photographed all at the same time. You know….typical stuff.
Here are a selection of our favorites from the most recent portrait session. We will be flying out to Oahu in just a couple of weeks to document a wedding and to photograph the twins on their turf. Looking forward to some sun, some sandy beaches, and some hang time with the boys.
