Sitter photography in Edinburgh

Can you believe that your tiny baby is now this little human, laughing at your jokes, peek-a-boos and tickles! At around six months old your baby will begin to sit independently and interact with the world around them… and their personality begins to shine! 

Now is a perfect time to continue creating your little one’s biography. A sitter photography session will simply capture their unique curiosity, laughter and that special way they play with their toes and respond to daddy’s singing! You can expect a variety of portraits that will brighten up your home, including close-ups of their gorgeous smiley face, toe grabbing, sitting, rolling and laughing. 

The session is entirely baby led and the aim is to capture your baby in beautiful, timeless portraits that will add to your child’s story and when displayed around the house will help them grow more confident and develop a stronger sense of belonging.

A fun, short and sweet session

A sitter photoshoot is a very exciting session, where everyone from baby to photographer to parents are getting a workout! It is recommended for babies between 4 – 10 months, ideally when they can sit up unaided, as this gives you a wider variety of portraits! It’s the  important next milestone to celebrate after a newborn photoshoot or perfect if you missed out on those tiny baby photos. 

Sitter photography sessions normally last anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour. Babies tend to have quite a short attention span at this age and if there are different outfits involved, the patience wears out quickly. The sitter photography session is fast paced, there are a lot of peek-a-boo’s, games, giggles and sometimes chasing too if your baby has already mastered crawling!

After your session, I  will select and retouch your portraits and invite you back to the studio to view them. I will guide you through selecting your favourite moments and together we will design the perfect products for you – choose from beautiful keepsake albums and custom wall art that compliments the interior of your home.

Three reasons why

you should hire a sitter baby photographer…

1) Professional portraits are priceless

We all take countless photos of our children on our phones to capture everyday moments, but these can’t replace quality professional portraiture, created in a custom prepared environment and suitable for proudly displaying on your walls and in heirloom albums.

2) It's a very special milestone

Your baby is well past the newborn stage, but they are still far away from being a toddler. The time seems to be flying by at this transitional stage, every day is filled with new experiences, skills and abilities. The time when they seem so grown up but at the same time so little. Allow me to capture their gorgeous smiles and emerging personality with portraits you will treasure forever.

3) You will regret it if you don't

This one is as simple as that. I don’t know anyone who regrets having a professional sitter milestone photography session but I know of too many people who regret not organising it.
