When I know that I will be doing sibling newborn photos during a newborn session my excitement kicks up a notch. I love newborns, and have been formally trained in person by the industry’s leading newborn photographers. However, as a mom of two little girls, I can’t begin to describe the burst of emotions that I get when I see an older sibling bonding with their newborn baby, especially during the newborn sessions.
Lennox and her big brother are no exception, and stole my heart. Photographing toddlers with newborns is not an easy task, so we keep it very simple and organic in the studio. Lots of cuddling encouraged of course, but more importantly for me, it is crucial to let the older sibling naturally interact with their baby. During this natural interaction is where the wonder and awe of this new person really impacts everyone in the room. Who would have known that Lennox would wind up giving up the biggest grin in brother’s lap? Those emotions and responses, you just can’t cue.
For her individual photos, we went with very neutral and earthy tones, adding feminine touches of lace and flowers…and, of course, pink. Everything was simple, elegant and perfect. Something that I didn’t know was that Lennox’s great-grandmother has a photo of her grandmother with lace draped over her similar to the photo above. That photo became all the more special to her grandmother because of this tribute.
