I would not actually call myself a Houston Twin Photographer, per say. While I have photographed a handful of twins over the years, it is not the norm for me. I suppose it could be because while twins have become much more common in recent years, multiples are still make up a very small portion of births in the world. Did you know that the rate of twin births in the United States reached a record high in 2014, according to an annual report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics. There were 33.9 twins born for every 1,000 births in 2014. Did you know that up to 22 percent of twins are left-handed. In the non-twin population the number is just under 10 percent. Identical twins exhibit almost identical brain wave patterns. Twins and multiples have been know to develop their own ‘language’ that only they understand. This is known as cryptophasia or idioglossia.
The average time between the delivery of the first and second twin is 17 minutes. Just a few interesting tidbits on the subject of multiples. 😉
I met this momma, her most precious boys and their grandma for the first time at my Santa sessions last year. I was thrilled beyond measure when she contacted me to photograph her boys and her for their first birthday. We had such a great time and I even convinced grandma to get in a couple of shots. 🙂 <3
Momma was so thrilled to have one of her images from this session featured in Twins Magazine, the June 2016 edition which may be found here.
