Boy oh boy, just look at these two. This handsome pair arrived at my South West London photography studio for a sibling photoshoot. With their wonderful parents in tow, they proceeded to warm my heart on a cold and grey Autumn morning.
It was a lovely, laid back session, which is always how I endeavour to make all of my photoshoots, but it is always particularly delightful when I work with more than one child. I had the studio toasty warm to make sure everyone was comfortable, and then proceeded to take the first round of photos of big brother on his own while little brother was fed. Before the novelty of posing for photos wore off, we switched settings and I took some images of the baby sleeping, before combining the two for some snuggly sibling shots together. Being able to chop and change in this way makes the session particularly enjoyable for older siblings as there isn’t long periods of sitting around.
By the end of the session we had a great selection of photos for mum and dad to take a look at. Many people don’t realise that within a photo session it’s possible to take a range of photos of the various members of your family. This is one of the reasons I like to speak to my clients prior to a session, to ensure that we’re on the same page and can make the most out of an upcoming shoot.
A sibling photoshoot like this one is such a perfect opportunity to take newborn photos, as well as including a big brother or sister in the fun. They really do grow so quickly and dare i say it, they’ll never be as cute as they are at this moment in time. Before you know it, these two sweet little lads will be strapping twenty somethings, blushing at this photo every time they visit mum and dad.
