When clients book and ask to bring an older sibling I get super excited. They certainly make the sessions interesting and you never know what type of mood they may be in when they arrive. Will they want to be in the photos? Do they want anything to do with their new baby brother or sister? What type of personality do they have?
Well, with adorable little Lara, who came in with Mum & Dad for a studio maternity session in my Colchester studio, I got all my answers within 5 minutes. I've photographed Lara before but a few years ago, and wow how her personality has evolved, and in the most wonderful way. She LOVED joining in all the photos and followed every single instruction I gave and her sassy personality just had me giggling throughout the whole shoot.
I have lots of tips and tricks I use with older siblings to engage with bump and baby and they create a really good look and emotive feel to them. With this session I could go even further as Lara was enjoying herself so much.
If you are pregnant and undecided about a maternity session, then I can absolutely say, do it! These images should show you exactly why.....
