We met this lovely family last year. They were at a wedding we photographed, and I photographed their family session the very next day. I instantly enjoyed spending time with them. They’re great company and I had a blast with them. Kipton was just a little man a year ago, but he has grown up so much and stepped up to the plate for his big brother role. What an honour to help them welcome Landon to their fold.
Sibling photos are always tricky. We don’t keep this a secret, it’s always something we try to warn parents about. Patience are needed, and and we always have to try over and over again to pose them. However, Kipton seemed to be the exception to this rule. Every time I asked him to come hold his brother, he happily said “no” to me, took my hand, and walked over! haha! Obviously he’s a very typical two year old with the favourite word “no”, but he happily came along and snuggled baby Landon.
The family photos went much the same, and since Kipton was so agreeable, and Landon was happily sleeping, we zoomed through the family portion of their session. As soon as we were finished, grandpa whisked Kipton off, and we were left to document Landon. Mom and dad brought dad’s baby blanket to use in the photos, and Landon smiled as soon as it was placed on him. I don’t think that’s a coincidence!
It was really lovely to see this family move into the next phase of their story. Thank you for having us capture this amazing newborn session!
