This gorgeous home lifestyle newborn session features some of the most adorable sibling pictures ever! Not even two years old, big brother Liam was so gentle and sweet with his baby brother, Everett. What a beautiful start for these BFFs.
Usually toddlers have very little interest in their newborn siblings during photo sessions and telling them to kiss and snuggle the newest addition results in frustration and pictures of a crabby kid trying to go the other direction. For this reason, I like to start newborn lifestyle sessions by focusing on Mommy, Daddy, and baby.
Big brother or sister will often be hanging out nearby, so bringing out a book or toy is a good way to lure them in.
While this big brother was more than happy to kiss and snuggle on command, a lot of toddlers respond much better to games and modeled behaviors. Keep things fun and silly! Give them a reason to want to participate.
Yes, this was definitely one of the easier newborn sessions that included a toddler, but there was still plenty of coaxing going on. We just went with the flow and fortunately baby Everett did too!
Well, for the most part anyway!
Enjoy the rest of this amazing lifestyle newborn session!
Congratulations to this beautiful family of four!
