A FINE ART PORTRAIT BOOK CELEBRATING TWINS
Do you have twins? Are you a twin? Do you know a twin?
Apply to be part of our latest project to create a beautiful fine art book featuring at least 25 sets of twins.
Well as a Mother of twins I have to say that there is something so special about it all. It is a bit of an exclusive club, not everyone can say they have survived twins or have a twin of their own. We can't wait to hear all the stories of each family's experience in raising twins or being a twin. These stories will also be featured in the book.
Supporting Jeneece place seemed like the perfect fit. Our boys were born at 34.5 weeks. We were very fortunate to be able to only have a short 2 week stay in the neonatal unit. Some families have longer stays, and have to travel for their care. There is enough worries during a high risk pregnancy knowing that you can be together as a family and not have to worry is a huge immense relief, and if we can help even just a little we would love to be part of that.
We plan on photographing 25 twin portrait sessions and when we’re finished, publishing a beautiful fine art hard cover book titled Wombmates - a collection of twins, featuring the best portrait from each session we photograph, together with a little anecdote about each set.
If you’d like your family to be a part of this, here are all the important details:
Who: If you are a twin or you have twins. Ranging in ages from being able to sit up on their own to 100+ years. (It is very important the twins can sit on their own unaided) We would love to capture all stages of lives for this twin project. Identical, fraternal, young and old. Preference will be given to those who have great anecdotal stories to share about their twinship.
When: Session times will be available Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning June - September 2018, with morning, afternoon and evening options. The book is slated to be published in late October.
Where: Hudson Wren's natural lite studio, 55 532 Herald Street, Victoria BC
Cost to participate: $100, which will be donated directly to Jeneece Place. Our goal is to raise a total of $2500.
What’s included: The full Hudson Wren Experience for the twins. An in-studio portrait appointment to capture you and your twin as you are at this moment in time. These beautiful timeless black and white portraits will become a cherished heirloom for your family and reserves you a place in the book.
The Hudson Wren Portrait Experience includes a personal appointment following your portrait session where you may purchase portraits from your session. There is no obligation to purchase any portraits, but we know you will love and want to display them in your home. This will be your opportunity to purchase any photographs if you like and help us chose the image that will be featured in the fine art book.

We will have a special selection of packages available for our participants, which will all include a copy of the book. Otherwise the book can be purchased separately.
