When people first contact me to book a newborn shoot, one of the first questions they ask is can the baby have photos taken with them, the parents, and with their sibling. That’s a huge YES from me – in fact, I nearly always insist upon it! This new baby is part of a family, and I think it’s important that that connection is photographed at your newborn shoot. I always tell parents to have the family portraits taken, they don’t have to buy them if they don’t like them – but they always do! Parents may feel tired and run down at this stage, but all you see in the photos is love and happiness.
So if you are pregnant and starting to think about your new baby’s photo shoot, please get in touch – and remember to put yourselves in picture too!
