As a family photographer based in London, I specialise in sitter sessions, a beautiful milestone in your baby’s photography journey following their newborn photoshoot.

After newborn photography sessions, sitter photography sessions are my absolute favourite!

What are sitter photography sessions?

Sitter photography sessions take place when baby is 5-9 months old, basically as soon as baby can sit unaided.

In a session we capture a series of set ups and portraits that capture the next milestone after their newborn session and captures their gorgeous personality.
These sessions capture the essence of your little one as they begin to develop their unique personality, resulting in stunning and heartfelt photographs.



Sitter sessions are short and sweet and last around 30-40 minutes. This is plenty of time as at this age you don’t want to overdo it and make your little one upset or tired. During the session I take multiple photos of your baby on their own and you are more than welcome to join in too. My sitter photography sessions are similar to my newborn sessions in that my style is timeless and organic styled. I love classic organic knitted rompers, adorable teamed up with simple set up with all creams/whites so they remain timeless. If I have photographed your newborn, I often try to recreate a set up that we did with baby as a newborn as it’s so special!



Sitter sessions are best photographed when your baby is usually around 6-9 months. These sessions are designed for when your baby can sit up on their own unaided, this way we will be able to get more variety from your photos.

Monica made me feel so comfortable...

"Monica from Lavender Hill Photography was amazing. I first meet Monica for a maternity shoot which I was hesitant about doing. She made me feel so comfortable and she managed to get amazing photos. I then went back with my family; my wife, 7 year old son and our new addition who was 11 days old. We never felt rushed and everything was down to get the photos that we wanted and loved."
