PREPARING FOR YOUR BABY’s
6-7 Month MILESTONE SESSION
SIX MONTH SITTER TIPS
A Baby 'Sitter session' captures a special milestone in your baby’s first year. It's a celebration around 6-7 months when your little one has learned to 'sit up' all on his/her own. By now the questionnaire in your client portal should be complete. Your responses will give me an idea of how to style your session. Please note, I do keep setups simple (no busy themes) so to keep the focus on your little one. I suggest your baby wear neutral tones with solid colors or simple patterns. Avoid neon colors, cheesy quotes, designer logos, and busy patterns as they will only detract from your baby's sweet face. Bring up to 3 outfits and email Lisa a picture of them about a week before the session. This will help me decide on a color scheme, choose simple props, and prepare the studio for your baby a day or two prior to arrival.
Baby Sessions can last up to one hour and can be held in studio or outdoor if weather permits. Babies tend to get restless very quick, so we allow some time for breaks as needed. Be sure to bring your child’s bottle or sippy cup and snacks so long as they don’t contain bright colored dyes that will stain hands and clothes. A favorite toy, familiar children's songs or videos on your mobile phone are also suggested. While I encourage peek-a-boo and other simple, fun games to invoke natural emotion, please DO NOT try to force your baby to sit still or smile. It will only make him/her upset. Please allow me to interact with your child unless I request your assistance.
*Immediately after the session, we will review and choose your baby’s final images for your package. Please be sure to check your portal’s links section for the price guide ahead of time.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to capture these precious moments in time for your family. It truly means the world to me and I know your photographs will create unforgettable memories for generations to come. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to make our time together go smoothly.
