What is sitter portrait session and what does it involve?

Baby photograph Lichfield


You may have heard of ‘sitter portrait session’ mentioned during your newborn session with me and wondered what type of session is that. It is a milestone portrait session where we capture your baby whilst being able to sit unsupported. Session is usually scheduled between 6 and 10 months of your baby’s life. It won’t be long before they run around, therefore sitter session is a celebration of your little one being able to sit. At this age babies have adorable facial expression, they smile a lot and don’t cry when Mum sits them on the floor to be photographed.


This session takes approximately up to 45 minutes as babies attention span might not last longer than that. During this time we are able to change set ups and few outfits to make sure parents get beautiful and diverse gallery. This type of session is for baby only, if you’d like to upgrade to a family session, please have a look here: FAMILY & CHILDREN SESSION. We provide all the backdrops, outfits, high quality blankets and props. Here you can find available packages for SITTER SESSION.


If you’d like to book in just send me an email and we can discuss details CONTACT ME. You can book this session after your newborn session or 2 weeks after your baby is able to sit unsupported.

Below you can find examples from the sitter sessions. Variety of props, backdrops available. You are more that welcome to bring your own outfits and props.
