Newborns and Sibling Sessions
Hi, I’m Natasha and I’m obsessed with newborn photography…….lol……..well I am but that’s not what this post is about. It’s about sibling poses in a newborn session. I’m a London Ontario Photographer that specializes in newborn and baby portraiture. I love to keep it fairly simple with newborns and try to focus on the baby. We do have some basis props but I tend to gravitate to the more organic and neutral items, while also doing pops of colour here and there.
My sessions include a lot of newborn sessions that involve a sibling. These are by far my most challenging sessions but they are stunning and by far the most favourite images for the family. I know that once I had my second child I loved getting the two of them together, no matter if they were smiling, laughing or crying, just the interaction of the two of them together filled my heart with love. That’s why I don’t sweat the small stuff with sibling images. I know that just having these precious ones together is important and I try to incorporate poses that are not stressful on the sibling, especially if they are under the age of 4.
Adding a sibling to a session definitely requires more time and we have to take things slow for sure. There is also a lot of behind the scenes editing required for this part of the session since you can bet that there will be multiple head swaps. It’s a process but the end product is awesome!!!
