Matthew’s big sister Addison wasn’t sure how she felt about the idea of taking pictures with her new baby brother… but she surprised us all and couldn’t get enough! When we photograph newborns with their toddler siblings, there are a lot of challenges. Putting a fragile infant in the arms of an unpredictable, and often uncooperative tot makes for nervous parents, disturbed babies, and always presents the risk of them just deciding they’ve had enough, and tossing the baby aside!! Addison hugged, kiss and loved posing with her new rival / I mean, toy / I mean, brother — and was fantastic! Little Matthew was a champ in his own right — he slept the entire session, put up with my posing him in many adorable positions, and even kept our blankets clean (if you know what I mean!). Newborn sessions can often take 3 or more hours… but when they run as smoothly as this family’s, they can be just as quick as a typical family photo session (45min – 1 hour).
I had so much fun with Addison, Matthew and their parents, and can’t wait to watch this family grow up right here in my photo studio!
