This little guy and his sister are 20 months apart and I absolutely love their newborn family photos. Last year I began offering baby-only mini sessions for the client who wants photos of just their baby. I always encourage my clients to consider newborn family photos. This is the only time of life that your teeny tiny baby will fit in your hands.
Having 2 siblings close in age never changes my thoughts on the importance of newborn family photos. Having 2 under 2 certainly seems like a lot to juggle, especially in the first 14 days. However, there is nothing sweeter than sibling love. This may just be the beginning, but that is all the reason to document the beginning of their time together, too.
I have photographed siblings as close in age as 13 months apart and these two are not my first pair with a 20 month age gap! I’m a professional. Not only am I a spare set of hands during your session (Did you know, I change all of baby’s diapers while they’re here?), but I have a strategy for making this easier for you that I share before your session too. Additionally, all photos are taken with age appropriate poses and props with the safety of both babies in mind.
I was so thrilled when this family reached out to me for newborn photos. As it turns out, they live up the hill from me and we had never met before! It was so great to photograph this sweet little guy and his family.
If you are looking for a newborn photographer in the Northern Virginia area, I would love to work with you. Posed newborn photos are taken at my in-home studio in Sterling, VA when your baby is between 6-14 days old. It is important to book your newborn session no later than the beginning of your third trimester. Please contact me for specific availability and a free consultation..
