As a mother of three, I understand with complete certainty the difficulty of capturing a good picture of all three kids looking, smiling, cooperating, and just being happy. Inevitably when I do sibling shoots, there will be one non compliant kiddo. Someone who just isn't happy, doesn't want to be there, doesn't want to smile, and no matter what the bribe, promise, or consequence will no cooperate.
NOT THIS TIME!
These little guys came in with their baby sister for a quick sibling pose, one pose five clicks, super fast. They nailed it, I showed them my secret fruit snack stash and offered them each a package after the pictures. Put them into position and placed little one in the middle. Both boys smiled, listened, and nailed it! We ended up with a beautiful picture of the three of them and I felt like super woman!
Little sister stayed behind while the boys got to go hang with their grandma, then she and I got to play. Knowing mom had two boys I pulled out all the pink i could get my hands on. Super sweet and girly!
This little lady was just beautiful, chunky and happy. She was a dream to work with for an older baby. Love love love her little baby self. She even threw me a few smiles at the end.
This session was such a blessing to me, I was able to work with a small baby and siblings in a new pose, and play around with options for a wiggly 6 week old little one. Not things I am able to do with every newborn session. I really used this as an opportunity to try some new things, and practice some seldom used skills. Thank you to the family for bringing them in!
Here are my favorite outtakes from the session. Find Little Mother Photography on Facebook to see more session sneak peeks and find links to the entire album!
