It’s always newborn photo season, but this week, we’re taking a special look at newborn photos with siblings! These sessions are always fun for Jayme. She gets to soothe a newborn while the older siblings show their affection for their new baby sister or brother. Plus, Mom gets to take a break while the kids are in front of the camera.
Are you planning for newborn photos in the near future? Here are three reasons why newborn photos with siblings might be just what your family needs.
1. Celebrate Your Growing Family
If this isn’t your first baby, congratulations! You enjoyed pregnancy and parenthood so much you decided to do it again. And maybe again. And again. A photo session with Miette Photography can help you celebrate your growing family.
If you’ve booked a newborn photo session previously with your other children, this latest session will be a perfect addition to your gallery wall. Literally or metaphorically, with these new photos perched next to past photos, you can watch your family grow over time.
And if this is your first baby, you can keep the sibling photos in mind for any future babies.
2. Help Older Kiddos Feel Included
Some older kids are enamored with their new baby sibling. But it’s also common for older children to feel jealous of the attention a newborn receives from Mom and Dad. Newborn photos with siblings are a way to include big brothers and sisters in the excitement.
We see how tenderly big siblings care for the new baby during photo shoots. Forehead kisses, giggles, and play is normal. Even if big siblings are acting out at home, they tend to show more affection during a newborn session. And as the siblings grow up together and bicker–as all siblings do–you might look back fondly on when they were so tender together!
3. Remember These Years Forever
As any parent will tell you, the younger years of having kids fly by. A photo session like this can stop time, just for a moment. Newborn photos with siblings can be framed, printed in a baby book, or sent in holiday cards to loved ones. The bond between siblings is special–so it’s worth capturing forever.
