Compared to a lot of newborn photographers, I do my sessions backwards. Many photographers start their sessions with baby photos and then have the family join in at the end. I do love the baby portion of newborn photoshoots, but I like to give as much focus to the family photos, especially when there are other siblings involved. Also when doing family and sibling photos first, they don’t need to hang around waiting for their turn. This is especially great as I work in very warm environments (heat=sleepy baby), so my clients don’t have to worry about getting all sweaty and having makeup run while they wait for their turn at photos.
Baby Easton was so sweet during his family photos. He stayed awake throughout, but he was cool and calm. It wasn’t until mom was holding him that he finally fell asleep (and flashed a cute grin). We even got a sleeping photo of both siblings at the end of the session.
