As a mom of two, I know the feeling of documenting the first-ever sibling photo of your babies. It’s such a special time, and watching your babies interact is one of the sweetest treasures.
During each of my newborn sessions with older siblings, we will always be sure to document them together with their new baby as well as a handful of solo portraits.
Of course, not all siblings instantly gravitate towards their younger sibling. I know it can sometimes be overwhelming for them, but I’ve got more than a handful of tips and tricks up my sleeve to get them snuggled up together so we can create sweet memories. But I also have a few tips for you as parents to prepare for the day.
My first and best tip for these (and all sessions) is to ensure everyone is as well rested as possible before your session. None of us are at our best when we are tired, so be sure to sneak in a nap. We will also chat about the best times for your family to schedule your newborn session.
The next tip is to let your little ones lead the way with what they’re comfortable with. Of course, I will also help everyone during the session with my most trusted prompts. The key to authentic images is letting your older children advocate for themselves. Giving them breaks when needed is always the best way to go!
Finally, my biggest tip is not to let expectations get the best of you. Not all big brothers are as enamored by their new babies as this sweet little boy. Even if your little ones are a bit nervous during the newborn session, they are usually all over each other by their six-month milestone sessions.
After years as a motherhood and newborn photographer, I can promise you’ll leave the studio with some of the most precious new portraits of your babies together.
