To be expecting a newborn for most women is the most exciting time of your life. So what about the day you go for your first ultrasound, suddenly to discover that you are carrying twins? In practical terms, expecting twins simply means having to double up on everything, from nappies and clothes, to strollers and buggies. However nothing can actually prepare you for the arrival of your two new bundles of joy. All you can do is wait while you get bigger and bigger. However this can be a great time to explore your family history. Couples who have twins will usually find there are a few instances of their predecessors having them as well. It is very rare you will find you are the first couple in either of your families to have had a multiple birth.
And once the joyful day has arrived, prepare to be overwhelmed with a tidal wave of love and emotion. There is something remarkably special about twins, and we have assembled the most beautiful collection of images to show you exactly what we mean. Even before these babies have time to understand, let alone develop sibling love, they already clearly are happy to demonstrate it. Perhaps it is because their subconscious is so used to having that secure sensation of being in constant physical contact in the womb, but each of these children look so peaceful, so delicate, and so cherubic when entwined with their sibling. We simply adore these images, and especially the photographers’ use of soft delicate and neutral colored materials. After all, with such natural beauty, why try and create a more vibrant image when the message here that is being conveyed is one of gentleness and hope.
