Sitter / older baby session

Sitter Sessions are the perfect milestone to capture your baby's emerging personality. Your baby will have changed so, so much since they were newborn. Now that they can sit up on their own, it’s the ideal time to capture their growing personality. Make the most of this opportunity to capture some gorgeous memories whilst they’ll happily sit still for a photo – because, believe me, that won’t last for long!

I have a selection of outfits at the studio, or feel free to bring your own.

These make great gift ideas for the parents and grandparents!

FAQ

Here are the questions I get asked most often before booking. If you need more details or have a question I have not covered, then either email me here or ping me a private Facebook message here.

Sitter sessions take place once your baby can comfortably sit up on their own without any support and before they start crawling. This is typically between 6-9 months but, as with everything, can vary from baby to baby. They are only short sessions so that your little one doesn’t get fed up, so I don’t need a huge amount of notice. Just don’t leave it too late or they’ll be on the move!

At this age they are fun and full of smiles and giggles giving us the perfect opportunity to create gorgeous, yet simple portraiture which make for phenomenal wall art pieces.

Schedule your photo session at a time when your child will be lively, awake, and playful. Often just after waking up from a nap is best.

Bring along necessary items to help keep your child happy favourite toys and blankets. Meal or snack time can be a fun time for photos, so you may want to prepare some snacks for your child for the shoot.

For kids under one year old I can supply all clothing and props, but am also happy to use special clothing or props you may wish to bring along.

Absolutely! Family and siblings’ photographs are in my opinion the most important ones. They are priceless treasures for years to come and future generations.

Studio size limits numbers. So the number of guests should be kept to a minimum. If you would like to bring for example Grandmother or another relative please discuss in advance.

A non-refundable SESSION FEE of £25 is due on booking to secure your appointment. This DOES NOT include any prints nor digital images, which are charged individually.

The session fee is a creative one, which covers my time and talent to shoot and create professional images that you will treasure forever, and guarantees your appointment. It also covers acquisition, full use, and maintenance of quality studio props and my time to select and perfect your images for viewing.

Yes, one digital package needs to be purchased.

After your photoshoot, your photographs will be edited to my highest standards before being presented to you. This process typically takes two weeks, however it may take a little longer during busy periods. As soon as your photographs are ready, you’ll be invited back for your personal view and order session, where you’ll be able to view your photographs and choose the packages and products that you would like to purchase.

Please note that some mini sessions and event photography packages may not include a personal view and order session; in these cases you will be provided with an online gallery from which to download your photographs.

The first thing to do is get in touch! Send me a message via my contact form and I’ll get back to you at a time that suits you. We’ll have a quick chat so that I can find out a bit more about you and the style of photographs that you’re drawn to, then I can tailor your session accordingly. This consultation is also a great opportunity for you to get a feel for who I am and hopefully relax a little about what’s to come.

Providing you’re happy to go forwards, I’ll follow up our call with details of how to pay your £25 deposit, as well as a standard contract that explains all the relevant terms and conditions. Please note that your booking will not be confirmed until your deposit has been paid and the contract signed.  After booking, you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder closer to your appointment time.

I require 48 hours’ notice when cancelling or re-scheduling. No guarantee can be given that a specific new slot will be available nor provided.
