Over the years, my newborn sessions have all focused on baby. The new addition to the family, a session to celebrate their arrival and document this special time in a family’s life, photographing baby on multiple backdrops, on different colours and in different props… Some of my packages included the option for family portraits and siblings, but because posing baby on all of the different sets on their own takes so much time and patience, the family segment is always a quick add-in at the beginning of the session and then we move on to focus on baby alone.
I’ve been noticing a gap in my package offerings as of late, particularly for the crowd who has older siblings, and so I’ve finally remedied it! Introducing the brand new “Family + Newborn” Collection!
This package combines everything I know and love about my family sessions AND newborn sessions and rolls them all together into one perfect package so that, in the end, you’re left with a beautiful gallery with everything you need to update family albums and create art walls in your home. Bonus is that because it takes me a bit less time to complete, it comes with a lower price tag as well (not by a lot, but any savings is good, right!?) 😛
The Family + Newborn Collection begins with two different poses of family portraits (standing and sitting), and then a set with just parents and their new bundle. Images of just each parent on their own with new baby are captured, and if there are older siblings involved they get to have their picture taken with each of them as well. Then, we move on to sibling portraits and capture all of those beautiful kiddos together. The one major change to this collection that the other packages don’t have is the incorporation of individual portraits of each child. You’re photographing your brand new baby all by themselves, so I really felt that any and all older siblings deserved to have updated portraits of themselves as well. This is a super important and exciting time in all of their lives, and they deserve to be remembered just how they are, right now, as well.
After siblings have had their time to shine in front of the camera, then it’s baby’s turn. New baby is photographed wrapped, on one solid colour backdrop from multiple angles (including those gorgeous macro (close up) shots of their little features – lips, eyelashes, ears, fingers, toes…) If baby’s temperament will allow, then I peel back the layers of wrap and attempt a few different poses on that same backdrop. The end result is a perfect, cohesive gallery, and I love everything about it. I hope that you all will too!
