Desiree loves being a mom, and wanted photos that would reflect her happy and healthy family. So, when she booked her Surrey Newborn Photography Session with me, she was a little stressed about how her toddlers would behave.
But, that’s the beauty of an at home lifestyle session. Kids can be kids. I love to focus on capturing real life and this was no exception. We started by getting Mom, Dad and their newborn son, Weston, comfortable. After that was sorted, we let the toddlers enjoy themselves—by breaking Mom’s rules and jumping on the bed! This shot is one of my all-time faves.
Of course, we wanted to get a few images of all three kids together, so we lay little Weston between his big bro Harrison and big sis Charlotte. It was super cute the way the kids kissed Weston and whispered in his ear. These two just loved hanging out with their new baby bro.
Now, I can say that I have photographed all three siblings in their newborn stage! It’s such a great feeling to be asked back into a home to meet the latest addition to the family. It also gives me a chance to add a little familiarity and symmetry to their family portraits—I love it!
Like Weston’s brother and sister, we captured him with his very own blanket that Desiree crocheted for him while she was pregnant. Now there is a series of three kids, each with their own gift from mom. Plus, we pulled out the brown fur that big bro Harrison was photographed on, just a few years ago, to make a cool side-by-side art piece for their wall.
My favourite thing about this family is that Desiree and Bob both have so much love for these kids, but aren’t afraid to share the humour in parenting. I’m serious—Desiree’s snapshots and captions on Instagram have me LMAO.
While I’m pretty sure this will be their last newborn, I hope to see them for a Family Lifestyle Photography Session when the kids are older. Here at Family Creative Imagery, we agree that slightly chaotic photos like these will remind our families exactly what it was like to have two toddlers and a newborn in the house all at once—hectic, but super fun! – Meg
