Newborn Twins at Home- A casual family session in Northern Michigan

When I arrived at the house, I don’t know what I was expecting, but definitely not the tranquility that I found.  Sarah was looking well-rested and relaxed, her not-quite-two son was quietly playing, and the twins were just contently quiet.
