Onward, upward, off they go // C+J’s first year

All the way back in February 2015, Erin contacted me about doing her twins newborn session and First Year Baby Plan. She was not even due until the beginning of September but I totally love a person who plans in advance! Throughout her pregnancy, I got to hear about the genders (a sweet boy and sweet girl!), learn their names, and just discuss the upcoming fun times that we would have!

On June 15, I got an email from Erin that said that the twins were born two days previously on June 13 at 28 weeks old. Little Cameron James was born at 8:09am weighing 2 lbs 9 oz and sweet Julia Ann came right after big brother at 8:10am weighing 1 lb, 15 oz. My heart went into overdrive for this sweet couple who I had never even actually met in person but connected virtually.

These sweet babies, warmly referred to as C&J or Bub and Bean are fighters though. I got to meet these precious littles during an in-hospital NICU session on August 28, 2015. Two plus months since their birth and each weighed at least 5 lbs! How incredible is that?!

One year ago, I traveled to Savannah to meet this two sweet souls and their incredible parents. One year ago today, Cameron and Julia stole my heart. Hopefully these little fighters steal yours too!

Their first year baby plan was slightly modified as we followed their adjusted age instead of their actual age. As with most premature babies, their is some catching up that is going to happen in terms of their milestones. Instead of photographing them at actual 4 month age, we “adjusted” (hence the term adjusted age) and did the sessions at 4 months (and 8 months and 1 year) from their intended due date.

These two are strong and adorable and I know that they have such a big future! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your first year, C+J.
