The Twins Newborn Photo Shoot

Hi guys!

In the middle of the twin newborn chaos, I had a photographer come to the house to capture some photos of our little family.  We loved the hospital photos, but I wanted to capture this special time at home too.  I underestimated the amount of work that would take to actually make that happen and I felt like a complete trainwreck during the entire experience.  Luckily the photographer worked her magic and brought a sense of calm to the photos that didn’t actually exist.  I could not be more thrilled with them and am shamelessly going to spam y’all with them today. 🙂

I hope you enjoy!


Hunter on the left and Jackson on the right…  there will be a pop quiz on who’s who at a later date. 🙂




















Isn’t Makena the biggest ham ever?  She was totally stealing the spotlight from her brothers.

Now please know that with every pretty photo here there was a pile of laundry and mess we moved out of the way to get these prettier than real life shots.  While we are doing pretty good with the boys, don’t think I’m super Mom living like these photos. 🙂  I’m still in sweats 95% of the time and life is very real and messy right now… but that’s also wonderful.  Just wanting to keep it real.

Thanks for scrolling through… it was too hard to pick just a few. 🙂

I’d like to thank the extremely talented Jill Schwarzkopf from Realities Photography for taking these photos.  She normally shoots weddings, so if you are looking for someone in Asheville she does a beautiful job!

    If this session was chaotic, one would never know it! Hunter and Jackson are precious, and Makena is such a little clown trying to steal the thunder in a few! You are such a beautiful family, and so very very blessed! Years from now you will look back on this first photo session with smiles mixed with happy tears!

    May all the blessings of this joyous season be yours!

    Thanks for starting my morning off right. Jackson has darker hair and Hunter more blond almost reddish. I have another friend who has a boy two months old from Asheville also and she shares pictures all the time….I can’t get enough of all these babies!! They will melt your heart.

    Julie, the are both so precious. I would not have a problem at all right now telling them apart. When looking at the photos from my right Jackson looks just like you, no question about it

    I about died of cuteness at the picture of the boys in the pilot hats. SO CUTE!!

    Makena looking up at the camera when she’s sitting next to the boys is adorable. These are all beautiful pictures Julie!
