Can siblings be included in a newborn shoot?

Can my older children be included in a newborn shoot? 

 

One of the most common questions that I get asked when potential clients are looking to book a newborn baby photoshoot with me, is if they can have their other children included in the shoot too. The simple answer is 'hell yeah'!!! 

Having a newborn baby is one of the most precious gifts that bring so much love and joy to parents but they also bring the same to siblings and that bond is magical. 

 

 

I am forever trying to educate and beat the drum on how quickly the first few weeks of a newborn goes and how precious those moments are. But as well as capturing the actual physical features of your sleepy, curly baby, it's also about the moments. The moment that they were so tiny, the moments in the first weeks when they are so innocent and sleepy, the moments when they first start to bond with the family. 

So, yes of course, siblings can join in and even more than this...so can your furry babies too. As a dog mum, they are also part of the family to there is room for them too. 

 

How does it work then? It's really simple and stress free to include other children and or your family dogs. My studio in Southampton, is a home based, dedicated space that is off the main part of my house and offers a comfy and cosy space for parents to relax whilst I capture their newborn baby for their photoshoot. So that I can keep in relaxed and minimise any stress to small children and their parents, I recommend that they come to the part of the session that they are needed for only. This works particularly well for toddlers and young children who may be overwhelmed by the experience and a new environment. Most clients with either arrange for a family member to bring them to the end or a partner will take them off to the park or near by soft play whilst I continue with the rest of the shoot. 

 

The same goes for any furry babies too. You simply bring the pooch to the last part of the shoot when they are needed so that they do not become overwhelmed. I recommend that they have a good walk before coming and with treats to hand, it's usually straight forward. I will always capture babies and animals in a safe way, so they are never photographed together. No, I'm not a wizard per say, just maybe a wizard with photoshop! 

Family is everything to me and one of the reasons I do what I do, so I'd be delighted to include yours!
