What is a sitter session? Sitter sessions are one of the types of milestone shoots, capture when your baby is able to sit up unassisted.
Sitter sessions generally take place when your baby is between six and nine months old, which is when they can crawl and sit up on their own but not walk. That means they’re not quite as mobile as they are at the 1-year session so they are easier to wrangle and pose for adorable portraits.
This is an amazing time for portraits as your baby’s personality is really shining through and they are putting on lots of fun facial expressions! Infants are also more responsive to and curious about their environment at this age, which makes for portraits that truly capture the fun and interactive nature of the shoot.
In addition to being more curious about what is going on around them, infants at this age tend to be more outgoing socially. Many children go through a stage of being very shy or intimidated by people that they do not know, however, babies at the sitter age are usually comfortable meeting new people. This makes it easier to get your little one to smile, have fun, and create photos that you will love for a lifetime!

While each baby starts to sit unassisted in their own time, you can plan on having a sitter session around six to nine months of age. It is suggested that you contact us about a session early in your child’s life so we can reserve a block of time for you. If you have found us recently and your baby is already sitting or will be soon, give us a call and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
To prepare a sitter session that will both look great and be fun for parents and child we’ll have you fill out a questionnaire. This will let us know about your style, whether it be minimalist or full of color, and we’ll customize the experience with our curated collection of props, sets, and backdrops. We’ll also use it to learn about where you’d like to hang your portraits in order to customize the color palette to fit your home.
During the shoot, we’ll play and interact with your infant to bring out smiles and emotional expressions that will make your artwork truly remarkable. It will be a stress-free experience as we take care of every detail, letting you can relax in our lounge area or have fun with your child during the shoot.
2-4 weeks after the session, we’ll meet at the studio and show you the best portraits that have been delicately retouched and edited. We will help you choose your favorite portraits and exhibit the luxury investment pieces we offer. You, your friends, and your family will be taken aback by how exceptional the final art pieces look in your home..

We recommend you book as soon as your second trimester. We are usually booked for months in advanced so the earlier the better. However, we do have the occasional reschedule so give us a call for up to date availability. When you are still expecting, we will mark your due date as a floating date and once baby is here, you shoot us a text or email, and we will go ahead and schedule out the date and time.
The best age for a newborn session is between 4 and 14 days old to capture all the delicate details. This is when they are the sleepiest and most flexible so we are able to get them in all those adorable posses. However, we can capture all ages in a milestone session.
NO! Our studio is fully equipped with everything we need to capture your little ones first memories and match your vision. We have hundredths of props for little couches, to bowls, beds, dream catchers, and so many little outfits, headbands, accessories. So unless there is something special you would like in the images like a blanket from grandma, or a special stuffed animal, you don't need to bring anything.
Absolutely! Having a new baby is a special time and celebrating by taking an updated family portrait is the best way to preserve the memory. We usually take a variety of shots of mom and baby, dad and baby, all the siblings, and the family together. Just remember that a newborn session may take upwards of 4 hours so we recommend that dad takes the older siblings on a day out to the park or for lunch while we finish with baby.
