As much as I love photographing a child I photographed as a newborn, I love photographing their new sibling alongside them even more! This sweet girl, Cora, is the little sister of baby Hadley, who I photographed not quite two years ago. You can see that Hadley loves her new sister who has been welcomed into this family with lots of love!
Newborn sessions with a sibling under two can be a little unpredictable, but at home sessions like this, with a lifestyle approach (including the family as a whole connecting with each other), really allows for a relaxed session where no one is expected to behave perfectly the entire time. And in addition to celebrating the arrival of and photographing the newborn, it ensures that the older sibling has fun and knows that they are just as important as they always were!
