Oh you guys, can we please take a minute to talk about how cute big siblings are with their newborn baby brother or sister. Yes, I will be totally honest that when parents e-mail me saying they would like to get some photographs done with their 1 week old and 2 year old a slight wave of panic runs through my body. Attempting to get a 2 year old to sit still can be exhausting in itself, but add a newborn baby to their lap and who knows what will happen! But when it goes right, it is so good! Thankfully, I have met some pretty amazing big siblings these past few months and they are willing to love on their new baby sibling for at least a few moments.
Graham was such a rock star big brother during our time together. I first asked him if he might want to hold baby Luke and he answered with a very direct and very polite, no thank you. Oh no, I thought. As we talked to Graham about how important his job is as a big brother, he slowly decided that he was up for the task. He held his brother, laid with him on the floor and kept placing his little hand right on Luke’s head. These two are certainly going to be lucky to have each other.
The interaction between big and little brother was so sweet, and I feel so thankful I was able to capture it. Welcome to the world, little brother Luke!
