Last week I had another session with a new sibling being added to a family, this time in my studio. I’d photographed this family when their daughter was around five months old and it was wonderful to photograph their son at the same age.
The main challenge with a mobile child and immobile baby is often getting them in the frame together for long enough to take a picture but we managed that several times, as well as lots of whole family shots.
To an only child like myself the relationship between siblings is beautiful and mysterious. I was happy to be able to capture some interaction between them, as well as the parents looking fully relaxed in their roles. Watching families grow and change over the years is definitely one of my favourite parts of my work.
