Baby Lucas came to visit with his family for his newborn photos and a little fox buddy which is one of his very first toys. He also another first toy which was a rabbit but, despite the customary relationship between foxes and rabbits, the two seemed to be getting on famously so no problems there.
First toys are a great addition to your newborn photo shoot, as they always hold a special place in our hearts. In fact, I’ve quite often had mums and dads bring along their first toys to include, ready to pass on for duty to the next generation.
We also made some time to capture the first official photos of Lucas with his very excited big sister who was the perfect model while we waited for him to settle down into his snuggled up position and he was definitely very happy getting the first of what I imagine will be very many cuddles.
Sibling and family photos are no problem at all in your newborn photo shoot (although they’re certainly not obligatory if you don’t feel entirely camera ready – it’s entirely up to you). With younger siblings who are likely to get bored having to be in the room for the newborn session, then I usually recommend that they go off to a local park with an adult for a while we capture the newborn pictures and rejoin us at the end of the session.
