So long, Year of the Dragon. Howdy, Year of the Snake!
I've been saving up these photos for a while, waiting for a special occasion . . . . I first met (and photographed) The Twins back in July 2012. We've done several photo sessions since then. Being out on the Bund with these two, you get a sense of how it feels to be a celebrity -- they attract a lot of attention. And for good reason: they're crazy-cute. Double Happiness indeed! It takes a lot of energy to keep up with them, but it is so worth it. I'm very sad to say they're leaving China at the end of the month. I'm going to miss them (and their Mama) so much! But I feel really lucky that I had the opportunity to meet them and document their last months in Shanghai. I think that years from now, The Twins are going to be so grateful to their Mama, who set up all these photos sessions, coordinated all these little outfits and hair bows and props, and always stayed just close enough to make sure they didn't fall off of anything or get into any real trouble. They'll always have these memories of when Shanghai was their playground.
So now, in honor of 2013, I present thirteen of my favorites. Enjoy!
