Sitting Baby Photography Sessions in Gloucester

Your baby is growing faster than you can keep up with

They change so much in those first months, don’t they? Now that your little one has gained a bit of independence and can sit up on their own, it’s the ideal time to capture their growing personality.

Make the most of this opportunity to capture some gorgeous, smiley memories whilst they’ll happily sit still for a photo – because, believe me, that won’t last for long!

Our whole experience with Katie was excellent from start to finish!  Katie is warm and friendly and made us feel at the ease from the minute we walked in.

She managed to capture our son perfectly- and all of his expressions! He was very overtired but she worked with him so well, you wouldn’t have known it. Would highly recommend her.

Sitting Baby Photoshoot FAQs

Before your photoshoot

Can I pay for my session in instalments?

Yes! You are more than welcome to pay for your preferred photography package in monthly instalments in the run up to your session. Please let me know if you’d like to take advantage of this when booking your session.

No, you are welcome to make a bespoke order. There is, however, a minimum spend equal to the relevant silver package.

I have to be really careful not to pass on any nasty germs to the small babies that enter my studio so, please get in touch to reschedule. You won’t be charged and it’s much better to be safe rather than sorry.

Sitter sessions take place once your baby can comfortably sit up on their own without any support and before they start crawling. This is typically between 6-9 months but, as with everything, can vary from baby to baby. They are only short sessions so that your little one doesn’t get fed up, so I don’t need a huge amount of notice. Just don’t leave it too late or they’ll be on the move!

On the day

Where is your studio?

My studio is located at my home in Longlevens, moments off the A40 and M5 motorway, making it ideally situated for clients in Gloucester, Cheltenham and further afield.


Standard terms and conditions can be found here.


Babies don’t tend to have a great attention span so the session won’t tend to be any longer than an hour. We’ll try a few set ups and just see where your little one takes us! These sessions are far less posed than my others and are more about capturing whatever your little one wants to show us.

After your photoshoot

When will my photographs be ready?

After your photoshoot, your photographs will be edited to my highest standards before being presented to you. This process typically takes two weeks, however may take a little longer during busy periods. As soon as your photographs are ready, you’ll be invited back for your personal Reveal and Order session, where you’ll be able to view your photographs and choose the packages and products that you would like to purchase.

What happens after my photoshoot?

As your photoshoot draws to a close, we’ll arrange a convenient date and time for you to return to the studio for your Reveal and Order session. I don’t like to keep clients waiting too long, so I normally aim to get you back within a couple of weeks of your photo session.

If you can’t wait that long, you’ll be offered the opportunity of a sneak peek of one of your photographs on Facebook the evening of your photoshoot. Please note that I need your consent to use your images in this manner, so if you have not already opted into this within your contract, you may be asked to complete a model release form.

At your Reveal and Order appointment, you’ll be shown a beautiful, customised slideshow of all of your photographs. You’ll be reminded of the packages available and shown the art of the possible when it comes to wall art. And then it’s up to you to choose how you’d like to proceed. There’s never any pressure and, of course, if you don’t fall in love with your photographs, I will happily refund your session fee. Thankfully I can report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs!

Orders are to be made at the Reveal and Order session so please make sure all decision makers can attend. I accept cash or debit card and can also offer payment plans if necessary.

Do I have to decide on my final order at the view and order appointment?

Ideally, yes. The purpose of the view and order session is for you to sit back and enjoy your photographs and decide which collection is right for you. Additional view and order appointments may be requested, however a booking fee will apply.

What is the charity donation?
I am passionate about helping families across Gloucestershire to celebrate family life but I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a luxury such as professional photography to help them do this. From an early stage in my business, I decided that I would do my bit to support those who can’t, so I chose to donate a portion of all standard packages sold to three charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles, The Family Haven and Footsteps Counselling and Care.
Will you use my images?

I’d love to! But I will never show your photographs to anyone without your consent. When you sign your portrait photography contract, you’ll be asked permission to use photographs from your session for marketing purposes. I know that some people feel uneasy about this until they’ve seen their images and that’s fine. You’re welcome to make up your mind at your view and order session and, if you’re happy for me to share your beautiful images with the world, I’ll simply fill ask you to fill in a model release consent form. And of course, if you’d prefer they stayed private, then that’s absolutely fine as well.

I wrote a blog post which goes into a little more detail about this here.
