Last weekend I got to do another of my favourite types of shoots – the addition of a new sibling to a family. I enjoy them because there are so many different possibilities for combinations of people in the images and for interaction.

As an only child I am especially fascinated by the way young siblings react to each other and love having the opportunity to capture this. I also love photographing tiny babies and remembering what my son was like when he was so small.

On a practical level as a photographer these sessions are always very busy, because while a parent is feeding or changing one child you are still photographing the others. This makes for a more exciting morning and the opportunity to take lots of great photos. Here are some of my favourites.
