CHARLOTTE NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHY
6-8 months Sitters
A Baby 'Sitter session' captures a special milestone in your baby’s first year. It's a celebration around 6-8 months when your little one has learned to 'sit up' all on his/her own. Babies are very interactive at this age and are full of personality, genuine expressions, giggling smiles, and adorable faces. It won't be long before they are crawling, standing, walking, and running around so don’t miss out on capturing this special stage. Sitter sessions can be held indoor or outdoor (weather permitting).
BABY MILESTONE FAQ
AT WHAT AGE SHOULD MY BABY BE PHOTOGRAPHED?
Our goal is to photograph this milestone between 6 and 8 months when your baby is ‘fully’ supporting him/herself in a sitting position, but we will photograph as young as 3 months. We are usually booked 4-6 weeks out and a limited number of bookings are available each month so it is important to schedule as soon as possible.
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION TAKE AND WHERE?
Sitter sessions last about an hour depending on the number of outfit and set changes. Babies are generally photographed in studio, but we can also do outdoor sessions.
DO YOU HAVE STUDIO PROPS AND WHAT SHOULD MY BABY WEAR?
Yes, the studio has a collection of props, backdrops, and even some clothing items for this age. You are welcomed to bring items from home too if you’d like. As part of booking your session you will receive a Preparation Guide with everything you’ll need to know for the session.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST AND HOW DO I BOOK?
Milestone session packages are $300 and include 10 digitals. $150 of the package price must be paid at booking along with a signed agreement in order to confirm your session on our calendar. The balance of your package is due 24 hours prior to your session. Additionally, you may book your baby’s first birthday session as a bundle and save$. Additional digitals, Albums, Canvases, and other optional print products are also available. Please contact us for more details or to book.
CAN FAMILY MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN THE PHOTO SESSION?
If you want the whole family involved, I’d suggest a family session. The cost is the same (see above). Otherwise, Sitter sessions sets are small and will not accommodate adults. These sessions are focused on the baby only. So we can either do a family session (up to 5 people outdoor) or a sitter only session (indoor or outdoor).
DO YOU SELL DIGITALS, PRINTS, BOOKS, OR CANVAS?
Yes, Lisa Yvette Photography is a full service studio offering not only portrait sessions, but also high quality print and keepsake products. Payment Plans are available for product purchases over $700. Please contact us for detailed info on pricing and products.
CAN WE JUST PURCHASE DIGITAL COPIES?
Yes, You can purchase high resolution digitals only. They are delivered to you online with a release for reprinting permission.
WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE PHOTOS?
You will see a soft edit of your photos on the day of your session. A full edit of your beautiful photo gallery, ordering and receiving your prints from our lab will take some time. Please allow 1-2 weeks for digitals and 2-3 weeks for print product delivery.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE?
We understand emergencies can and do happen. To avoid rescheduling fees, please give us 24 hours notice if possible. You’ll be rescheduled to the next available date. Note: We will only reschedule ‘once’ for personal reasons. If a second reschedule is required, you must pay the booking fee again.
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?
Our studio is located in the Southwest Charlotte area known as Steele Creek, near McDowell Nature Preserve and Park. We are just about a mile from both Tega Cay and Lake Wylie SC.
