What is it like working on a newborn session with two little ones at the same time? Is it possible to “handle” and feed, change, put to sleep and arrange the babies at the same time?

What does planning a newborn session for twins look like?
The initial date of a newborn session in our studio is set for about 10-14 days after the due date. However, this date needs to be verified when the babies are already in the world.

We will then wait until the babies have gained strength and weight.
How long does a newborn session of twins last?
A two newborn session lasts slightly longer than a standard newborn session. Usually however not longer than 4h. Most of this time is spent on feeding, changing and putting the babies to sleep. It takes skill to put newborns in photographic accessories almost at the same time – coming to Marta Ponsko’s studio you can be sure that you leave your newborns in the best hands.
