When Luce and Theo were babies in a stroller, people would often stop me and say, ‘Aah twins!’ Two pairs of big blue eyes would then focus intently on this stranger in response. They wouldn’t laugh nor cry. They’d just gaze in silence until the stranger walked away.
They still like to use the double stare for various purposes. Admittedly often to get their own way – how can I answer no when their eyes plead for me to say okay?
Without knowing it their postures often mirror each other too. Luce and Theo had a bond from their first day. Now their body language often shows they’re united.
But despite their double power as twins, Luce and Theo have very different dreams. Theo plans to design and build skyscrapers while Luce wants to be an artist and writer.
Yes I can definitely see why the double stare works 🙂 I love the picture of them with the same body language, I think that’s the thing that gives us away as siblings, the shared gestures and expressions even when you don’t necessarily look very alike!
Since they were little I’ve often found it hard to resist the power of their ‘double stare.’ And you’re so right that siblings often can be spotted just by their mirror body language.

They do have beautiful big eyes, and that double stare would ensnare! Gorgoeus photos x

Such striking images, their eyes are just stunning. It’s so lovely how they are so in sync with one another, but yet so individual too.
Thanks for linking up to Siblings. x
