There’s nothing quite like the bond between siblings, especially when welcoming a new member into the family. Those precious moments of connection, tenderness, and playfulness are worth preserving forever. Booking a newborn photography session can be a wonderful way to capture and celebrate the special bond between your older child or children and the newest addition to your family.
Sibling bonds are unique and heartwarming, and a professional newborn photography session can beautifully capture these moments of affection, curiosity, and pure love between your children. I encourage natural interactions and playfulness between siblings, resulting in candid and heartwarming moments that truly capture the essence of their relationship. We will usually do one laying on the floor pose setup. Where the older sibling will be hugging and kissing on baby. Then sometimes we will do poses where the older sibling or siblings are sitting and holding baby. We can even have siblings sitting near the props and interacting with baby with a kiss or a simple touch.
I have the skills and experience to create stunning images that not only showcase the sibling bond but also highlight the beauty and innocence of your newborn. I understand how to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed during the session because having a new sibling doesn’t always run smoothly. Often younger siblings can be a little jealous of the attention a newborn gets so we may have to try multiple times to get the shot. We might need to take a shot with baby out of the picture and then bring baby in post processing. I’m skilled in working with children, including newborns and toddlers. I completely understand the importance of patience and flexibility, ensuring that the session is a stress-free and enjoyable experience for the entire family.
I work closely with my wonderful families to understand their vision for the session. I take your preferences into account, ensuring that the photoshoot reflects your family’s unique personality and style. If you want to include sentimental items or a nod to someone special, we can always incorporate this into your session. I have a huge variety of wardrobe, props, backdrops, and settings that resonate with your family’s interests and personalities. I usually like to keep things at neutral level for the family/sibling portion of the session. I really like going the neutral route because it works for all skin tones and helps keep things simple. It’s usually easy to find white and nude colors for the whole family in a short time. Another option is to choose to use one of the colors that you picked out for baby only portion of the session. You can also wear your favorite color; this personal touch adds a unique and meaningful element to your photos. We will work together during the consultation to figure out which option will work best for your family.
The images from your newborn photography session will serve as timeless mementoes of this precious time in your family’s journey. You’ll be able to look back and relive the joy and tenderness of these early days. Not only will your images bring you joy every time you see them, but you are also creating a wonderful heirloom for your children to cherish. Maybe even their children too! Whilst celebrating their bond, I’ll also take the time to capture individual portraits of each child if you would like me to, allowing their individual personalities to shine through. This is a beautiful way to celebrate the milestone of a new baby arriving.
Booking a newborn photography session not only captures the cherished moments between your children but also creates a lasting keepsake that you’ll treasure for generations. It’s a beautiful way to celebrate the love and connection that make your family truly special.
