Sitter Session

Sitter Session


What is a sitter session? They’re designed for babies who are roughly 6-10 months old, when they can sit comfortably on their own, but aren’t yet crawling or walking. Often people plan to get newborn photos, but that time is such a busy shift in your life and it can easily be missed, so a sitter is the perfect next step to capture your little one’s vibrant personality before they start running circles around you (and my camera!). There is also nothing cuter than what comes with this age – chubby rolls, big smiles, giggles and big round eyes!

This fee includes a 30 min – 1 hour session in my natural light home studio in Orange and you will receive all edited hi-res digital files available for download via a password protected online gallery.  With approval, I provide a sneak-peak of some of your photos on Facebook a couple of days after the session and deliver the completed gallery within 3-4 weeks.

Some points for your session:

  • Avoid timing it near nap time. Hell hath no fury like a baby due for a sleep, and we don’t want cranky crying for your images. It will also stress you out, so have a think about when during the day they are happiest, and we will plan to that
  • I will have you sit next to / near your baby at all times. Not only will you be there to catch them if they become unsteady, but you’re also a familiar face to help make them comfortable
  • Dress your baby in neutrals – white, grey, navy, mustard. I also keep some clothing so don’t stress if you don’t bring anything for them at all
  • Let me get their attention during the session – and no judgement for me being a total goofball! I will work hard to try and get those smiles and giggles, but your images will be better when they’re looking at me, not you. If they just want to watch Mumma though, try and stand in my direction so I can get those photos!
  • Have fun and relax. Babies will feed off your mood, so just let them shine and be who they are on the day! I have my own kiddos and totally understand that sometimes they just have bad days, but I’ll use all of my tricks to create the magic for you

A $100 deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your spot as I only book a limited number of sessions per month.
