Colton’s Baby Sitter Session | Kansas City
Oh my GOODness! My job creating baby photography in Kansas City doesn’t get much more fun than this. He could not have been any cuter for his “sitter” six-month session! SO mellow and smiley. I met mom, dad and Colton at the studio. This baby was super relaxed and his red hair and gorgeous, blue eyes are so unique. After a few sets and outfits in the studio, we went outside to play for a little bit with mom and dad.
The six-month sitter milestone for babies is so much fun to document. As soon as they can sit up unassisted, make that call! For several reasons, I prefer the bulk of the six-month session to be in the studio. Parents are welcome to go outdoors with me after a couple of sets and we can get baby/family shots, giving you the best of both worlds for your session.
1.There are fewer distractions in the studio-
When you are outside and a car is driving by, they are very intent on following that car with their eyes. Especially boys, it begins early, this infatuation with vehicles. Outdoors there are many textures that your baby is not as familiar with. As a result, the baby will be exploring those and not glancing at the camera as frequently. Rather than competing with grass and concrete in some location around Kansas City, I will have more of their attention in the studio.
2. Better expressions-
Because the baby is much more comfortable being in a smaller space with mom and dad close by while sitting on their own than out in the “big world”. Also, the studio is the perfect temperature.
3. The lighting is perfection-
Consequently, there is nothing like a studio session for maximizing clarity in a portrait. Studio lighting highlights huge eyes and facial features in a way the sun just doesn’t always do outside.
4. Mom can help style the session, this is so much fun-
Most of all, moms have a blast coordinating sessions at this age by selecting backdrops from our “Style Your Session” website we give you access to after you schedule your appointment. A lot of times, mom will already have outfits selected. Almost always, this site will give you inspiration when you go shopping for your sitter-session! Take a peek at Nordstrom’s baby clothes. They are some of my favorites to photograph!
Thank you so much for bringing him, I hope to see you all again soon!
