Nothing makes us smile more than the love that radiates from a happy family. That’s why we couldn’t help but swoon when we saw photos of this intimate family session by Eden Bao Photography. The intimate interactions, natural smiles, and beautiful expressions, we absolutely love these sweet photos of baby Desmond with his adorable twin sisters and loving parents. Their love and joy is contagious. Read on and get ready to fall in love with this lovely family.
Eden Bao: When I heard that Desmond has two twin sisters who were of toddler age, I quietly shook in my boots. No other clients can bring a photographer to their knees like a toddler can, let alone two! Before the session started, I put a disclaimer to the parents that the siblings shoot is the most challenging part of the newborn session and that we would be lucky if we get one good shot of the kids together.
While Desmond’s and parent-baby portraits went smoothly, the siblings’ shot was a disaster. The girls’ five-minute attention span were up and the baby was more interested in escaping out of his wrap. The parents quickly gave up, called the grandparents in to pick up the twins and the session continued.
When I was editing their images, I was sad that there were no good sibling shots, so I asked them to come back on a different day for a mini session, no more than 20 minutes, just the kids. The mini siblings session was fantastic. The pictures of the kids were, in mom’s words, “magical!”
Thoughts from the photographer
Eden Bao: Mom and dad wanted Desmond’s newborn session to be focused first on the family and bond between family members, then second on the newborn. I was happy to photograph the connection between baby and his family. Skin to skin contact, just as they encourage in the hospital or at home birth, can create the most beautiful images.

You have one chance to capture that moment before it passes you by.
I would be honoured to capture these precious memories of your baby’s life from within the womb to their first birthday, so that you and your family can cherish them forever.
