1. Inspiration

I photographed this family twice – maternity and newborn. They have all four kids including the newborn baby. The ‘Family’ was for sure the inspiration. It was to welcome one more member to this family and it was about the excitement of waiting for the forth baby, and the little sister (they actually didn’t know the gender until the baby was born) to arrive. It was about the family’s celebration more than anything.

2. Favorite Element

Three kids – they were the ones who brought the smile to the parents and created the most loving connection in family in both maternity and newborn sessions.

3. Biggest Challenge

Three kids+one baby: photographing a big family with toddlers is always more challenging than photographing a small family or family with grown-ups. They are unpredictable, free-spirited, and can’t stay still too long. Overcoming the challenge requires creative solutions and the outcome is so rewarding. I particularly love the images of three elder brothers and sister looking at their little baby sister.

4. Final Thoughts

Whenever I have a toddler at the session, it makes me a bit nervous. I know my clients want to get nice images with a toddler – wether it is a maternity session or newborn session. It seems more important than any other images. I try to make a connection with the toddler when my client arrives at my studio and find out what she/he likes. I also plan the session thoroughly so I can involve the toddler(s) at the beginning and they are free to play after that. It works. When my tricks work out, I get the images my clients appreciate so much. And I also love those images more than any other images.
