Let’s face it. Toddlers and newborns don’t always mix so well. Whether big brother has zero interest in the newest addition or big sister is a bit too aggressive with her cuddles, having a toddler at a newborn session always adds an element of…let’s just go with “surprise”.
That said, I absolutely love getting sibling pictures.
Every so often, I show up at someone’s home for their newborn session and am disappointed to find we won’t be including the whole family. Even if we only get a few good shots of the siblings together and one or two family pictures, I’m always so glad for that opportunity.
The added chaos is worth it!
Coaxing sweet Delaney’s big brother into a few pictures proved to be quite the sport, so I didn’t have time for the usual environment pictures I like to snap, but no complaints here! It’s all about keeping things fun and going with the flow.
I love this beautiful family’s newborn gallery and hope you will, too!
