What is a Little Sitter Session?

So your baby is sitting by themselves! How did that happen so quickly? Time is going so fast and you can’t keep up with the rate in which they are changing. If you could freeze time you definitely would. But as we all know, we can’t. But we can capture these precious moments and freeze them as memories for you, your baby and for future generations to look back on. Baby photography is a fantastic way to build a memoir for your child. In years to come they will look back at images of themselves, siblings, and friends and love that you took the time to document their childhood.

Newborn baby photography gives you beautiful peaceful images, where your baby will mostly be sleeping, posed in gorgeous curly positions or wrapped up tightly. It empathises their newness, tininess and their wee beautiful features. Older baby photography, such as a little sitter session is all about personality. The cheeky smile, the cute little dimples, the lashes to die for and the abundance of giggles and gestures. Your baby is now so responsive and they are a captive audience to you coo’s, claps and smiles. This stage absolutely has to be captured. It’s my absolute favourite of all of my baby photography sessions.


“By displaying photographs of our children at different stages of their lives, we are making a very public statement that we are proud of them”

Professor Geoff Beattie, Dean of Psychological Sciences at the University of Manchester

Family photographs, especially those documenting a happy memory or a moment of emotion are so significant to our children. Clinical research has long suggested that children who grow up in a home where images of both themselves and images of the family unit are displayed, grow up to be more self confident. 

For this reason I include parent and sibling shots in all of my baby photography sessions at no extra charge. And if grandparents want in too, then I welcome them with open arms. These images will outlive us all and in 50, 75 or 100 years they may still be around (should you choose to print them) for your grandchildren & their children to view and touch a piece of their own history.

Capturing the details is just as important for an older baby. Such beautiful lashes. Such rosy cheeks. And such funny expressions. 

Little sitter baby photography sessions last around 90 minute, with parent & sibling shots as well as 3 different styled sets of baby alone. following the photoshoot you will come back to view your gallery of 20-25 images and select the package of your choice and all important wall art from your session.

Packages start from just £149. Let’s chat and find a date that suits for your photoshoot

A genre that I’m keen to work in is dance photography. Hertford family photographer, Joanne Lewis this week talks about this in her latest blog.
