I feel very blessed ‘everyday’ that I get to create & capture special & important photographs with families & children.
Today I am celabrating & dedicated this blog to all the big brothers & sisters that I have been privileged to photograph in my career so far.
Without their help in the studio my job would be so much harder and a lot less fun. Not only are they fantastic little helpers with their little brothers & little sisters, they come up with great idea’s and they insipre me everytime so I want to thank them all because sometimes they can get a little lost in the mix when little brothers and sisters arrive on the scene.
(In this image below – Big sister Ava on the right was awesome is showing her younger sister Zara how to be calm & gentle with their newborn sister Mia.)
With children of all ages and adults that aren’t used to being in front of the camera it can be challenging at times. You don’t always get that money shot of everyone together as you had set out to get but with families there are so many special moments created between each other and with the help of big brothers & big sisters we always get something extra special.
(Images below – Big sister Tiana was amazing with her three little brothers. Protective, kind, firm & fun. Lovely Tiana on her own)
The most important thing when I have kids of all ages in my studio is that they all have fun..:-) With a CAPTIAL F!!!! I want them to leave the shoot with the biggest buzz because they have had an experience that they normally wouldn’t have. The only rule in my studio is: “No rules just don’t hurt yourself” Obviously there are rules, safety procedures & parents watching over their children but to empower a young child, especially an older brother or big sister with the knowledge that anything is possible & they have some control over the situation is a cool thing that creates a sense of trust, a sense of empowerment within themselves, a sense of responsibility which in turn creates a stream of endless possibilities for some fantastic photographs.
(Images below – Big sister Sienna was so great with little Lily. We must have told secrets 100 times and Sienna went along with it perfectly everytime. Lovely big sister Sienna on her own)

Because every big brother & big sister is a super hero..
