What to Expect- 6 Month/ Sitter Session
When should I book my 6 month/sitter session?
These sessions are booked as soon as child is sitting up unassisted for a long period of time. This can be between 6 months of age to close to 7-8 months. I do not book until child can sit assisted due to the fact this is a milestone (sitting) and for the child’s safety since they might fall over if they don’t have their balance down pat.
Once child is sitting up good then you can contact me and we will get your session on the books! Once session is booked, we can discuss the details like indoor/outdoor and props/outfits.
What do I need to bring to my session?
Depending on if you want your session to be indoor or outdoor I have a couple props we can use. Most of my props are for newborn but I do have a couple of child sized chairs and a couple of stools/crates for them to sit on. If you are wanting something special then you are more than welcome to bring any prop you want to incorporate into the photos.
If you are doing outdoor and your child hasn’t touched grass yet then you are welcome to bring any baby blanket or quilt for your child to sit on. I do not provide those.
How many outfits can I bring?
Usually at this age they don’t like being changed very often so I suggest no more than about 2-3 outfits so we irritate child as little as possible.
When is the best time to do an outdoor session?
Outdoor sessions are done as close to sunset as we can get. During the summer time that means about 7:00. Most children this age go to bed around that time. I highly suggest moving around your child’s schedule for that day and doing a late nap so they aren’t cranky for their late session.
When do you offer indoor/studio sessions?
Indoor/studio sessions are done Monday-Friday at 10:00 at my studio. I do not offer studio sessions on the weekends or in the afternoons.
Can we do some family and/or sibling shots?
If this session is part of my First Year Package.. I do not offer family and/or sibling shots at this session. HOWEVER, I do offer an add-on for an extra $50 that will allow for 2-3 family and/or sibling shots. If you are booking this session as a stand-alone session then sibling and family shots are welcome.
Packages: I have 2 different packages to choose from for this session if purchasing as a stand-alone session:
Mini Session: 30 min session | 8-10 edited images via download link...$199 plus tax (this is a great option if you just want to capture the smash cake part of the session OR didn’t want to do a cake and just want a few 1 Year photos)
Full Session: 1 hour session | 20-25 edited images via download link..$299 plus tax
When will my images be ready?
Editing time is 3 weeks. I will send you a gallery download link as soon as I am done editing your session!
