Little Sitter Milestone Baby Photoshoot in Surrey and Hampshire

Gorgeous baby Artemiy recently came to see me for his Little Sitter session to mark the halfway point to his first birthday. "So what exactly is a Little Sitter session?", is a question I hear often! Well, a Little Sitter session is simply a photography session for babies who can sit up unassisted. These sessions take place at my studio in Aldershot, Hampshire -- right on the Hampshire/Surrey border. What makes these sessions so wonderful is that babies around this stage are becoming very smiley, playful and inquisitive and their personality has really started to shine through! So we usually get great big smiles and fun expressions. Parents just love the portraits we get from their baby’s sitter session, and I couldn’t agree more!

I provide a large selection of adorable baby clothes in my studio just for my Little Sitter sessions. This is often a relief for parents who are unsure of what their baby should wear for photos! I offer outfits for both boys and girls in sizes from 6-18 months, along with matching headbands for girls. Part of the fun is “shopping” from my collection of baby clothes! My outfits are beautiful and unique hand-made pieces that you won’t find in shops -- often one of a kind!

Are you looking to book a Little Sitter session?

Little Sitter sessions are best booked for when your baby is confidently sitting, so anywhere between 5 to 8 months old. There is no exact or correct time, since all babies achieve milestones at slightly different ages. A lot of parents also like to come in around the six month mark, since it represents the halfway point to the first birthday. Whilst I do have a large selection of gorgeous handmade props such as baskets and bowls in my studio that I use for newborn and baby photoshoots, in general I like to keep them to a minimum for my Little Sitter sessions. I do not like the setup to distract from the focus and beauty of our main subject – your baby! Props are simply used as an enhancement to the setup to lend a natural and timeless look. For example, a soft beautiful blanket or fur rug for your baby to sit or lay on.

For sitter sessions, I have a selection of props that will enhance your baby’s sitting experience in my studio. Sitting babies are usually still small enough to fit into some adorable props, such as a shallow bowl, a crate, or a little bed. Babies are often amused and curious when I place them in a prop, and usually results in some cute smiles and expressions! If you would like to make a booking, please don't hesitate to get in touch either via my contact form here or send me an email at and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
