What is a sitter session?
Updated: Mar 26
A sitter session is a photography session for older babies, from 3-12 months old.
Depending on how old your baby is, will determine which type of sitter session we would do.
If baby is around 3 months we would document your baby smiling, tummy time, on their back and also beautiful images with mum, dad and siblings.
If baby is around 6-9 months and sitting on their own this is a super cute age to document them standing, crawling, laughing, sitting. We would use props also such as buckets, beds and baskets. We have head pieces and bonnets which look so adorable at this age.
From around 9-12 months old we could do a milk bath session, your baby would need to be very confident in the water and with sitting for this session. We can do a variety of Milk Bath themes such as fruit baths, greenery & native, flowers or just milk. Milk baths are generally very quick and make super cute images.
Once your child is 12 months old a very popular session is the cake smash session. We provide a cake and decorations and then document your little one smashing their way through the cake, these are so much fun and the creativity is endless. Cask smash can be simple naked cakes, to donuts to muffins, We are happy to create a theme based on your requirements.
At Devina Wright Photography if you have had a newborn session with us, we give you a complimentary sitter session to use within 12 months. You can choose from any age up to and including 12 months old. A date must be booked in at the time of your newborn session with a holding deposit of $50 which is then put towards your image purchase. All sessions can include parent images.
Here is a testament from my lovely client Rebecca Flowers an her little boy Hudson.
" My son Hudson is just about to turn 8 months and it seriously feels like I have blinked and time has gone so quickly. I can already see his little personality emerging with his cheeky smile and many expressions. I’m so glad I chose to do a sitter session at this age. It was so much fun watching him commando crawling around, smiling at the camera, sitting up straight, he was really able to engage with Devina and of course his Mumma. I absolutely love my photos and keep showing them to everyone and I can’t wait to get them printed and up on my walls. Don’t let this time pass without capturing these moments."
