Baby Skylah is the HAPPIEST baby I have ever seen! It was such a JOY to photograph her. Her mom is pretty awesome, too. So that’s a huge bonus. I LOVE taking sitter baby photos!
Normally, sitter sessions are pretty quick, not because I’m done (because I could shoot sweet sitter babies forever), but because they are! Most people contact me for 6 month photos, and I always make sure the baby is able to sit up on his/her own (meaning, he/she won’t fall backwards). If the baby isn’t sitting, I always recommend parents contact me once he/she is! Otherwise, we’ll only have photos of baby lying on his/her back. You can’t pose awake babies in those cute little sleeping newborn poses. Most “6-month” sitter sessions fall somewhere between 6-9 months. Just depends on the baby. I like to shoot them when baby is sitting but NOT yet crawling. I would say most of my sitter sessions fall right around 8 months. Sitter sessions are the absolute BEST sessions, and I always encourage parents to do them, vs. waiting for me to take their one year photos. One year photos are a little tricky, because baby is EVERYWHERE. They are on the move, and they want to EXPLORE. Sitter sessions capture cute, chubby legs, bellies and arms – and most of that fades once baby is on the move.
