Two sisters who fell pregnant around the same time and gave birth to their babies just 20 minutes apart have celebrated their daughters’ first birthdays with a magical photo shoot.
Sisters’ due dates only a month apart
The sisters, Katie Morgan and Corey Talbott were amazed to discover that not only were they both pregnant, but were also both expecting girls, with due dates just a week apart. Unsurprisingly, the sisters were very excited about news and were looking forward to the special bond their babies would share.
‘They are going to have such a special, unique relationship. We can’t wait,’ wrote Katie on her blog, A Lil Bit Fancy
To commemorate their very special pregnancies, the sisters took part in a pregnancy photo shoot, appearing in identical blue dresses and sporting gorgeous flower crowns.
I’m in labour! I’m in labour, too!
When Katie went into labour and was in hospital waiting for things to progress, she expected her sister Corey to show up to take some photos during the delivery. However, amazingly, she instead received news her sister had gone into labour herself and was on her way to hospital too! Both sisters gave birth to baby girls, with little Indie born at 1.24pm and sweet Ryatt following her “twin cousin” just 20 minutes later!
Twin cousins celebrate first birthday in style
Now, a year after their miraculous double births, the sisters wanted to do something special to mark the occasion. Photographer, Brendan Boggs, of So Cute Photo, suggested recreating the photo shoot to celebrate the “twin cousins” first birthday.
“We knew we wanted to do something creative for the babies’ birthday, and Brendan said, ‘Why don’t we recreate the maternity shoot?’ and we were all in,” Talbott told Huffington Post.
For the photo shoot, Corey and Katie wore the same blue dresses and flower crowns, and the twin cousins wore matching dresses and flower crowns themselves.

The gorgeous shots were followed by a magical birthday party for the pair, who look remarkably similar and very close, just like their beautiful mothers.
“It’s brought us even closer”
Corey and Katie say they were already close siblings, but the experience of being pregnant together, giving birth on the same day and raising their babies side by side has made them even closer.
“It is so special to be moms together and share these experiences hand in hand,” she said.
And now they have the gorgeous photos to capture this unique and special relationship.
