Jersey City Sitter Session | Leven

Jersey City Sitter Session

I first met this family a few months prior for baby Leven’s newborn session. Now fast forward 7 months and this little dumpling is sitting on his own. He was unsure of what was happening and had a few meltdowns however we worked through it and even gave the model a milk break. It is important to note that babies do not smile on demand and have a very short attention span. We sing, dance, bribe with food but even with all that it could still be a tough situation. I like to include the photos with tears in my proof selection because it was a real emotion seen during the session and for the most part parents pick at least one of them. I will see him soon for his 1st birthday session and anxious to see if he will be all smiles or tears.
