Baby Sawyer may be a newborn and only 9 days old, but he is already as hip and cool as his big brother, London. I loved their matching pants and caps- so cute! London was really sweet and patient during baby brother’s newborn session and was happy to jump in as often as we asked of him. Pretty amazing for a three year old.
Sibling images are almost always the most important images for families welcoming a new baby into their lives. Not only can it be a challenge for mom and dad to capture a frame-worthy image of the children together, but sometimes toddlers want absolutely nothing to do with the new baby at all! A professional newborn photographer can really make a difference in helping to capture your children at this life changing moment in time. I typically photograph siblings at the very beginning of my newborn sessions. I try to get those done right away so that we know we’ve got them, and then we can move onto family images (which tend to be the next most important images.) If the toddler is shy or slow to warm up upon arrival, we’ll start with family images first. This way, dad can hold the older sibling and provide some comfort as he/ she adjusts to the new environment. We have to be flexible when it comes to working with newborns and toddlers who have just had their lives turned upside down!! I book extra time in sessions with siblings to allow for whatever may come our way! I try to schedule this type of session around toddler nap schedules, typically mid-morning when everyone is still fresh and at their best. A little bribery never hurts our cause either! 🙂
