Newborn Photography At Home With Xander & Sebby

a session at home in Sheffield with two kids and their mum

 

World, meet Xander and Sebby. One a bundle of sweetness at a few weeks old, the other a three year old ball of energy and fun.

 

My newborn photography sessions always happen at home. What better place to capture these memories than the place you’re all most comfortable? Being able to help your kids to snacks and juice just completely removes that extra layer of stress, and your home is where your memories are made. It’s your space, the place you feel most calm and safe.

 

When I photograph newborns I always make sure to include older siblings as much as possible. I love to capture their personalities too, because I see this as an opportunity to get pictures of the whole family. Newborn photographs can show so many things – the gorgeous tininess of the newest member of the family, the shift in the family dynamic, the calm quiet strength of a mother who’s just brought new life into the world, and the beautiful sibling relationship that’s about to bloom.

Xander was snoozing at the beginning of the shoot, so we decided to focus on Sarah and Sebby playing together. It was great to get to know them in this way first, as it made the rest of the session flow smoothly. Sebby was thrilled to show me his brand new big boy room – and with Tobias and the Bear bedding, I can’t say I blame him!
