We have so many sweet little families in our studio for sessions so now is better than ever to update with some of the recent ones. We say that the majority of our clients come to see us once they have a second baby. It’s not that people don’t come to us as first time parent’s, but we would say that it’s about 50/50 between them.
Hiring a professional for your Family
When you are investing hundreds of dollar’s into a photo session when babies already cost so much it’s tough. Trust us when we say it’s worth it to hire a company with lots of experience. We have photographed over 500 babies in our studio and we also have 3 children ourselves. We know how crazy it seems to hand over your new baby to someone you don’t know. Our studio has a lot of experience with small babies.
In our experience we see that most first time parent’s either don’t get photos done and regret it. Also we see that they decided to go some place where the photographer didn’t have a lot of experience with newborns and had a poor experience and not so great photos.
Sibling Photos are a must
We love to get siblings involved in all of our sessions. It’s a perfect way to get some cute photos of both kids for parent’s to share with family and friends. These photos are always our clients most favourite photos. We always want to recognize that things have changed for the older sibling. We know including them and making them feel special is key.
Baby awake photos are ok
Just because the baby is awake isn’t always a bad thing. We actually prefer for sibling and family shots that the baby is awake. This means that baby will be happy when awake since they are being cuddled by parents. They will usually sleep well once they are wrapped. We love to encourage that we wrap all the babies for these for safety reasons. Siblings can get spooked if the baby starts to cry or move.
