Meet Melanie and Kent’s beautiful twin girls. They named them Malia and McKenna. Malia is older by one minute. I know from my twin clients that this is something that they love to lord over their sibling. That one minute plays out to be so important as they’re growing up – LOL! It’ll end debates, make one more responsible, attach blame, etc.
I just adore these little girlies. First off, Malia was the girl name that I had chosen for my child but alas with two boys, it never got used. (As an FYI, it’s Mary in Hawaiian). And Makena Beach is one of my favourite places in Maui. I told them that even though they live in Jamaica, they’ll NEED to visit Hawaii with the girls for their namesakes of course.
For me capturing a twin session is like a trip to Disney. I get so giddy with excitement because it’s double the fun! Their parents always have a great story to tell about their journey into parenthood. I’m so incredibly grateful that Melanie and Kent chose me to capture these special moments for them. Congratulations on your blessings! I hope to meet you again soon (whether it’s in Jamaica or Hawaii). I can’t wait to watch your beautiful daughters grow!!!!
I need to give some behind the scenes credit to my friend Jen who literally dropped everything to rush over to help me with the girls. Jen is a busy mom of four boys and her husband just had hip surgery days before and she was prepping to go in for knee surgery days following this session. Jen is a baby whisperer extraordinaire!!! She helped me with syringe feeding, changed diapers and lots of soothing. I’m so grateful for her help 🙂 Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
