So your baby has just started sitting up for the first time and they are so proud of themselves.
The cute little smiles that they give and the cheeky look on their faces are just magical at this stage and arguably one of the best milestones to capture.
The Sitter session is a perfect way to document that next chapter of your baby’s first year and where you first see their little personalities starting to shine through and I know how to capture it in style. Sarah’s Sitter sessions are multi award winning, just as her Newborn ones are, so if you missed the Newborn stage here is your chance to make those special memories.
100% recommend Sarah
“Sarah is amazing and extremely talented. We really enjoyed our first experience with a professional photographer and our little boy looked amazing at his sitter session.

Couldn’t recommend Sarah enough
“We booked Sarah for a sitter shoot after finding her Facebook page through a friend of a friend, we loved her images and knew straight away that she was the photographer for us.
Sarah is a lovely lady with the patience of a saint! On the day of our session, our teething baby had a complete meltdown and cried whenever she was left in front of the camera.
Sarah was really relaxed and reassuring, she had many tricks up her sleeve to try and get the best shots. When it came to viewing, we were amazed by how many lovely images Sarah was able to capture and we are so pleased to now have these to keep forever. I couldn’t recommend Sarah enough”
A great time to book your Sitter session is at your Newborn session. Booking in advance is the best way to guarantee your shoot at the appropriate age. Some babies only allow a short window of time to capture this unique and special time. As they start to become stronger, they start to move very quickly and progress on to those gorgeous little bum shuffles, crawls or some even go straight to their feet and start to walk.
If you have not had a Newborn session with me it is still possible to book a Sitter session, dependant on availability.
Planning the shoot
The styling on the session will be agreed prior to your baby’s session. I always listen to your wishes and plans accordingly. The best sitter shoots are where your baby is the centre of attention, so it is best to keep the styling simple. I have outfits and props at the studio, so there is no need to bring along anything, it will all be taken care of for you.
Just like a Newborn session, the Sitter session is baby led. Therefore, it is best to work around their nap and feed times to ensure that they are on top form. I will work with you to agree the best time for you and your baby. I only book in one client per day, so there will be plenty of time to capture those impressive shots that you have dreamt of.
CHECK OUT THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS BELOW, IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION WHICH ISN’T ANSWERED HERE, FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH.
The editing process
After your session you will be required to pay a minimum spend, this is so that the editing process can commence. A minimum of 20 images from your gallery are selected and professionally edited. This is where your images really come to life. The editing process can take up to 6 weeks during busy periods.
The ordering session
After you images have been edited you will be invited back into the studio to view your gallery. It is at this point that you will choose your bespoke package. The minimum spend payment will be deducted from your chosen package.
All packages can be completely bespoke and you will get to purchase the products that you love, from wall art to albums to prints etc, there is so much to choose from and I will be there every step of the way to help.
How will my session be styled
The session is always styled to your wishes. Your preferences will be discussed before your shoot and I will add a little bit of magic to create the most beautiful set of images. I will agree everything from colour schemes to props. Everything is taken care of before the session so that on the day you just have to sit back and relax and watch it all come together as you had dreamed it would.
How should I prepare my child for the session
Children are always most happy when they have a full belly, so its advisable to feed your baby just before your session. If this is not practical, then you are welcome to feed your baby when you get to the studio.
Sitter photography is best practiced when your baby is most happy, I am happy to work my sessions around your babies routine.
What do I need for the session
You don’t need to bring anything at all! However it is advisable to bring any drinks, snacks, interactive toys or favourite items you may want to include in your photographs.
How long does a session take?
As the sessions are child led this can vary. Typically a sitter session will take 1 – 2 hours.
Can I include all my children?
No, but I do offer family sessions if you have multiple siblings or want some photos of parents too. Please contact me for details.
I would like to book a shoot, but money is tight. Am I able to pay in instalments?
Absolutely! I am so passionate about capturing your baby at this magical stage, that I would hate for you to miss out, just because of financial reasons. Getting everything ready for your baby is an expensive business, but whereas your pram, outfits, feeding equipment, car seat are all essential, they will not last longer than a year. You Newborn images will last more than a lifetime and will become an important heirloom for your family. It really is such a special thing to do. For more information on payment plans, please feel free to contact me via the contact page. I will look forward to hearing from you.
If you have any questions or would like to book a session then I’d love to hear from you.
