Sibling Portrait Session, St. Louis, Missouri

Siblings! We all know a sibling can go from being your best friend to your arch nemesis and back again in under sixty seconds; it's one of the things that makes a sibling relationship so unique (and fun). That being the case, it's certainly possible that a few "arch nemesis" scenes could break out over the course of a photo session involving siblings, but don't let that possibility scare you off! There will be plenty of chances to catch the high points, and the fun points, of being siblings when you put them in front of the camera.

There is something intangibly awesome about brothers.

These brothers might or might not have yet figured out how fortunate they are to have a big sister, but they will.

Photographing all the kids together can also help everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable around the camera, which contributes to beautiful and authentic individual portraits as well.

 Side note: Never hesitate to ask about including a favorite prop or family heirloom in your photos! They can be especially helpful to give babies and toddlers a way to stay in one spot and stay happy and engaged.
