Last month I photographed a lovely family in Belair Park, Dulwich. It was a bit of a last minute booking because the grandparents were visiting the new addition from overseas, but as they were happy to do the photo shoot on a weekday I was able to fit them in with very little notice.

I’ve mentioned before how much I love photographing a newborn joining an existing family and having the opportunity to record the older child becoming a sibling, so I was very excited to do this shoot. I also rarely get to photograph newborns outside but it can be a great option, particularly if there is an older child to keep occupied too.

The family were great to work with and having the grandparents there really helped as they could keep the big sister occupied while I got some pictures of her newborn brother. However, my favourite picture of the whole session was her enjoying herself so much on the swing.
