When I first got the call to photograph triplet newborns, I was so excited! As I started to plan out the session, I began to worry about all those detail shots...how in the world was I going to know what fingers and what toes belong to what baby? So, I came up with a beautiful way to tell which baby was which throughout the session and I'm excited to share how it turned out below!
I admire all of the beautiful stationary that wedding photographers get to enjoy, so I decided to take a page from the wedding industry and create custom deckle edged name tags. What a deckle edge?! A deckle edge is that pretty airy torn edge you find on heirloom photographs and custom stationary. I . AM . IN . LOVE . I will soon be offering deckle edge photo prints to clients as well!
Each baby had a custom deckle edge name tag and a distinctive floral that I used throughout the session to create a cohesive and organic look. The paper you use to create deckle edges is key. A heavy weight water color paper works best.
It was such a satisfying challenge to photograph triplets and I couldn't be more thankful for Mom's attitude. She brought along her aunt and Mom which was so helpful so I could focus on photographing the babies!
And I have to share a final image that makes me laugh. I joke that this is what you get when you try to DIY rather than hire a professional photographer...(full disclosure, I did take both sets of pictures, but the idea makes me giggle).
