What is a sitter session?

Published by Selina Cotton on

So, you’re scrolling through photographers websites, searching for the right one to suit your family and you keep seeing sitter sessions being advertised and you’re wondering; what are they?

From birth, your little one will go through many important milestones such as, flashing their first gummy smile, rolling over for the first time and cutting their first tooth. Sitting fully unaided is one of the big ones that sadly, not many choose to capture professionally. However, some parents do and they always say that they’re glad they did.

“ Such a kind and lovely lady. My 7 month old loved taking and looking at her amazing pictures and she was so patient with my millions of questions when I asked her. I will be coming again” – Lyza

Your baby’s first year will fly by so fast and the sad truth is, you probably won‘t remember half as much as you wish you did. This is why many photographers offer bump to baby packages to ensure all the major milestone memories are captured, such as sitter sessions.

So, what are they and when can I book one for my baby?

When your baby is sitting unaided at around 6 months old, you can book them in for their sitter session. These sessions last between 30 minutes to an hour and are completely baby-led. I work with your little one to get the best out of them (this usually involves the bubble machine and lots of singing). Each session is designed to suit a seasonal theme…the next one will be autumn/winter which is always a fun one to do. So now you know what a sitter session is, why don’t you book your baby in before you miss out 🙂

Toodle pip!
