If it's not their first born, then it's not uncommon for parents to want their children to witness the birth, or be there soon afterwards to meet their new sibling, or in this case, siblings! But sometimes it's just not possible. Either it's a c-section or the birth happens in the middle of the night, making it tricky for children to be present. Many of these families add a Welcome Home session. Which means I will meet them at their home as they arrive from the hospital or as the grandparents bring the kids back home, so I can capture those moments where siblings (and/or other family members) meet the new addition(s)! That's what I did with this family!
