Newborn & Siblings

There is no better way to photograph your children and baby together than in your home.  Newborn sessions take quite a bit of time and patience and it’s so much more enjoyable for the siblings to be able to go about their normal schedules without being stuck in a studio, bored and frustrated.  We all remember being little and having our parents drag us to places and told we can’t touch anything.  It’s truly no fun!  We are not about that at all.

We have seen such an amazing difference in the connections that we can capture when all your children are comfortable and happy in their own environment.

Jodie has an excellent track record in capturing these special moments but occasionally a little one is not fully cooperative – please do not worry!  She has some secrets to creating sibling images, some even involve PhotoShop – she will reveal these secrets during your session.

Photographing your new baby with his/her older siblings can be tricky.  This is why a professional photographer is well worth it.  Having her own children, now grown, and working with children for over 20 years, Jodie knows what works and what doesn’t.  Every child and every baby is different and needs to be respected for those differences.  A shy child does not need to have a loud stranger in their face and an active child does not need to be bored without and without interaction.  Professional photographers read each child and occasionally will bring in mom or dad’s help to get just the right shots.

Special Needs Children:  Jodie has worked with many special needs children and is very familiar with and is personally involved with autism spectrum.  Let her know if you have any concerns or special requests regarding your children’s needs.  She is there to make your photo session a memorable and beautiful experience.
