I love how many photos I’ve taken this month – I’ve done that on purpose, really wanting to capture as many moments as possible and I love having all of these to look back on to remember these few weeks. And it’s been a good one, all things considered. Take a look for yourself below.
Here’s the second part of the photoshoot that Hana and I did a couple of weeks back. We are extremely grateful to Rhian Clarke Photography for taking these amazing photos for us and look forward to using them all over the site over the coming months. We might even make it a regular thing, because we adore these so much. Here you go, if you want to see.
A couple of weeks ago Lucy and I decided to organise a photoshoot with Rhian Clarke, the photographer we had for mine and my fiance’s Engagement Party last year and the lovely lady who will also be taking the snaps at our wedding next year. We also had our make-up done for the occassion by the brilliant Jess at Amorio Cosmetics. Lucy and I plan on using the photos all over the site as we’re so happy with how they’ve turned out.
Being a twin is pretty special. It’s having a sister and best friend in one. We’ve spent so much time together growing up that we’ve come to have many of the same likes and interests, meaning we share countless similarities. That being said, we also have our own personality traits that set us apart from each other and gives us a chance to express who we are as individuals. As far as we’re aware we’re not the sort of twins that feel when the other’s in pain, although I’m sure that will be tested when one of us has a baby, but we acutely feel the other’s emotions when we’re feeling happy or sad, due to our close bond. We can sense when the other just needs time to sit in each other’s company, maybe listening to some music or watching a film, but we can also chat for hours about anything and everything. Being a twin can often be difficult to describe as it’s all we’ve ever known so I thought I’d post a few of my favourite quotes about twins to put it into words.
Being a twin is like being born with a best friend. – Tricia Marrapodi
Twins have a special bond. They feel safer with each other than with their peers. – Jeanne Phillips
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore but let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of heaven dance between you. – Kahlil Gibran
The special relationship between twins is that, if there’s anyone else in the world that’s going to get or be the confidant that you need, it’s an identical twin. – Sam Underwood
Mum used to say we were the same soul split in two and walking around on four legs. It seems unnatural being born together and then dying apart. – Melodie Ramone
When you gaze upon the lovely sight. Of twins, arm in arm, asleep at night. Think not that the house has been doubly messed. But that you, as parents, have been doubly blessed. – Jon Bratton
We all love to treat ourselves to a girly night in every once in a while, so this past weekend Hana and I got rid of our boys and had a lovely evening of face masks, nail painting, eating and movie watching. We love spending nights like this and try to do it as often as we can, we just need an excuse to ship our other halves off so we can indulge in all those fun things that they just can’t get on board with. It’s super easy to do an evening like this of your own, just grab one or more girlfriends and some beauty essentials, and you’re pretty much there. Here’s how ours looked.
