Having a studio has completely changed how I shoot newborn portraits - in a good way! Now I can actively involve all the family members, turn on some soothing music, and let mom and dad relax while I photograph their precious newborn. It also becomes a time that the whole family can remember and enjoy. That is why this session was so fun! The whole family was there and his siblings love him so much. If he was crying they would come over and check on him to make sure he's okay. If he was stinky, they would stay as far away as possible :)
And my absolute favorites shots were when they were cuddling up with their new baby brother. These pictures are priceless and I am so happy the family was able to come in and be involved in the session!
One thing to remember when involving the family with newborn sessions is to be prepared for a little longer newborn portrait session. Normally the sessions last 2-3 hours due to stopping points, feeding, changing the diaper and all of that jazz! But with a family involved, it may take up to 4 hours. But it is worth it!
