Sitter Photography

Once a tiny newborn baby, now they’re a joyous, happy, smiling, giggling little human. They’re discovering the world around them and are keen to explore every bit of their environment. Usually with their mouth! They’ve developed a personality and you can see their character shining through with every expression. The world to them is a place of wonder, as they sit and contemplate what they’re about to explore.

Whether or not you’ve had a newborn photography session, each milestone throughout your baby’s development feels like you’ve blinked and they’re onto the next. So what better way to capture their start of independence than with a Sitter Photography Session, a beautiful addition to your gallery of baby photos.

When does the session take place?

At around 8-12 months old, your baby will be able to sit confidently and unaided, but won’t have mastered the art of crawling. It’s at this stage that we shoot Sitter Photography sessions.

Before your session:

Before you come to your session, I will chat with you about what to expect and if you have any specific requirements i.e. specific outfits, colours or themes. It may be that you want to bring a couple of changes of outfit. On a more practical note if there is anything, which will help settle your child in case they get a bit restless or grumpy during the session, please bring that along too, and although obvious, don’t forget to bring spare nappies.

Where does the session take place?

The session takes place in my studio in Rawtenstall, Lancashire. I have a varied selection of backdrops, props and outfits, which I select only from the best suppliers including Creativity BackgroundsDesigned By Sisters and CwtchiCoo. I regularly invest in new seasonal props – and sometimes I even make them myself. You are welcome to bring your own outfits too if you have something specific in mind.

What happens during the session?

The session lasts up to one hour, which is plenty of time to photograph those fabulous giggles before they get bored! They are great fun with tonnes of laughter and finding new ways to coax those gorgeous giggles out of your baby. The results are always fantastic! You may even decide to opt for a Cake Smash Shoot instead! 

After the session:

Following your session, I will carefully select and edit the very best images to create your final gallery. Approximately 7–10 days later I will invite you to return to my Rawtenstall studio to view your gallery and show you sample products that you may wish to purchase.
