The sweetest siblings – family photo session in Maida Vale

During my half term mini session I had some adorable siblings in the studio. These brothers were so sweet with their little sister! You could really see and feel how proud and protective they both are of her.

As April is Autism Awareness month, I will be linking to another photographer at the end of this post who, as a Spectrum inspired photographer, is documenting a day in the life of a family with an autistic child.

But first, I will use this session to address the most common questions I get when clients want to book with me.

Their mum did a brilliant job selecting clothes for them: they all stayed in the same colour scheme and obviously felt comfortable in them. I think the light blue/ dark blue was a good choice for the session.

When you book a session with me, be it a mini session or a full portrait session, you will receive plenty of advice on what to wear (and what not to wear) for the session. For a full portrait session you even have the option to change your children’s outfit during the session, so you can get images in different colour schemes.

In this case, as it was a mini session slot that only lasts 30min, we didn’t want to loose time by getting the children changed.

Another question I often get asked is if there will be individual images of each child: yes, definitely!

As well a selection of images with all siblings together, I will take various images of each child on their own, in mini sessions as well as in full portrait sessions.

The little girl had been in my studio over a year ago already. She was again so sweet, and that in spite of feeling not too well.

Understandably, during a full portrait session there is much more time to capture different poses as well as expressions of each child. We will also change the backdrop (maybe black for some oomph or white for these happy, candid images) to give you more variation in your final images.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, for your mini session as well as your full portrait session, just contact me!

As promised I am linking to Spectrum inspired Las Vegas lifestyle family photographer/filmmaker Lisa Weingardt who is doing a great job in raising autism awareness. After visiting her site, make sure you follow the links in a circle as there are a few more interesting articles to read before you come back here.
