Sitter Sessions

Kevin- 6 months old.

Once you’ve had the newborn session and loved on those images for a few months, it’s time to start thinking if you want milestone images. Some families want images every 3 months until the baby is 1….others request sessions based off of milestones… can now comfortably hold their head up? Session. Oh, we’re sitting now? Session. Standing! What is this?? Session. To remember all the fine details of these important milestones. How they’ve changed from those completely dependent Velcro babies to these gummy smiles, drool (so much drool) and SQUISH.

Milestone sessions can be so fun. They can also be a challenge because as you now know, babies have their own schedule. This is also why I don’t offer mini sessions. Parents tend to think they’ll book a 30 minute session because it’s all their kids can handle….and while I TOTALLY get the thinking behind this, it’s not the best route to take with kids. Mini sessions are so great with adults who need simple headshots, or to even just capture a couple images of mom/dad playing with their kids. When you put a time limit on kids, they tend to not want to cooperate in that exact 30 minutes!

When you book a session with me, you get exactly that. An ENTIRE session. We’ll have time for outfit changes, diaper changes, a food/bottle break depending on age (and don’t forget that extra time for a tantrum or 2- it happens). Kids just simply require extra time. And while no, I won’t hold you hostage for your entire day, I want to be able to give you a more relaxed experience without the pressure for your little human to cooperate for those exact minutes planned.
