Miss M’s Newborn and Family Photos :: West Newton MA Photographer

west newton newborn photos

This sweet little lady came to my studio for her newborn photos from nearby West Newton, MA and brought along her family. Her family included mom, dad, big sister Miss J and grandmother. I had previously photographed big sis for her newborn photos. I always love when families come back to me for baby number two. Not only do I feel so grateful that they want me to help them capture these special memories a second time. But I also love getting the chance to see their first born as an older sibling! You can see Miss J’s newborn photos here.

Another great thing about being the newborn photographer for big sis and the brand new baby, is that there can be a sense of cohesion between the two sessions. In this case that meant Miss M wearing some of the same adorable hats that big sis wore and using some of the same props from her session. I love that these sisters will be able to see all the similarities in their newborn photos!

Taking Family Pics with New Babies

When it comes to including older siblings, I always encourage it. But in terms of how much of the session includes the big sibling, that I leave up to the parents. I recommend either bringing an additional family member or friend (like a grandmother, in this case) who can leave with the older sibling(s) once they’re done with their photos. Or having one parent leave with them. This way parents don’t have to worry about keeping any bigger kiddo entertained in the dark, quiet, very warm studio. Typically we start off the session with family photos, which includes sibling photos, too. Different families have different priorities when it comes to the family photos as well. Some want only photos of the whole family. And some like to get some photos of just the parents and the new arrival. I always offer these to all families and go with what they prefer. Down below you can see examples of family photos including big sister, and some of just mom, dad, and Miss M.
