Creating Memories

My baby photography style is a mix of natural and creative portraits. I’m a photographer who works with babies of all ages, and their family’s capturing your baby’s character and interaction with other family members.

Let’s Capture it Before it’s Gone …

So many parents don’t realise how fast their baby’s first year will fly by, and may miss out on important memories.

Each photography session from maternity to baby and beyond is customised to fit your family regardless of the age of baby or siblings, perfect for parents seeking emotive, natural images of their growing family that you will cherish forever.

My baby photography is more than simply capturing your newborn baby, I aim to capture your growing family through the eyes of your youngest.

You’ll have beautiful portraits of your new baby, with the bonus that each photography session includes a short family session as I know your child will one day love looking back at Mum, Dad, and any other kids in those photos.

Does age matter?

I know from my own experience what it is like to have a newborn baby in the house. It seems as though everything revolves around them. All your time is taken up with looking after your new baby. But, I also remember how quickly they change in that first year and how important it is to get some really good photographs of them.

Baby Photos Made Simple for You

Portraits of your sleeping newborn baby is a popular trend, but it is simply one style of photography you could choose for your own home, there are other milestone stages to capture during baby’s first year that are equally adorable, and that many first time parents do not realise are an option.

So please do not feel you have missed out on a newborn session if you didn’t get around to booking a baby photography experience in those first 2 weeks.

Not all Mums want to or feel like heading out of the house with their newborn baby, and actually prefer to capture those first memories with a photographer when their baby is older, but before they become toddlers 🙂

I established my photography studio in Harlow, Essex in 2004, and I’ve been a portrait photographer ever since, helping new parents capture the joy and beauty of their new baby.

Baby Photography has always been at the core of what I do, with a natural style to capturing these special moments of babyhood.

I understand it’s a busy time, and I remember life as a new Mum too, and it’s for that reason I also know you’ll never regret taking an hour to capture your new baby with the people and connections that give your life meaning and purpose.

This wonderful time that everyone tells you flies by (and it truly does), is a chapter you’ll look back on, and a moment you want to share with generations to come.

In a world full of busyness let’s press the pause button and celebrate what you have, what you’ve worked for, and what makes it all worth it.

Over the past year (thank you pandemic), I’ve refined my viewing and ordering process to be as streamlined, simple, and stress-free as possible – you’ve got enough on your plate as it is!

From our first phone call to the exciting day your finished prints and artwork arrives, I’ll lead you through my process for portrait photography step by step, ensuring that you get the beautiful characterful images you’ve dreamed of painlessly, no matter what stage you are at, if your baby, is 4 or 10 months old I’ll simply work with your baby’s development stage.

Ready to Book?

You can book a single maternity and/or baby portrait session or 3 baby milestone sessions together – Baby Club (see the next box along.)

Allow up to an hour, and there is plenty of free parking available at Parndon Mill, Harlow, CM20 2HP.

Or Join Baby Club?

You’ll get 3 unique milestone portrait sessions during your baby’s first year, including time for mini family sessions within our shoot time. So you can really watch them grow. Members enjoy special discounted collections, and a monthly payment plan (from £75 pm)

Let’s create memories you’re proud to share with your children and grandkids for years to come.

Imagine, in 30 or so years, when your baby has a baby of their own. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if three generations could sit around and open the album or look through their baby pictures? It’ll bring back memories for you too …

Baby Club baby photography sessions take place (typically) at 4,8 and 12 months, so once you are nearer your due date please arrange a call so I can answer any questions about how it all works. After the birth of your baby life gets very busy, so planning ahead makes things easier for you, and I only have 3 slots available for new starters to my Baby Club each month.

Sue Kennedy - Baby & Family Photographer

Sue Kennedy - Baby & Family Photographer

I’m Sue, I specialise in photographing babies of all ages, so there’s no pressure from me to come in when your baby is brand new. Babies are cute for a long time, and once their little characters emerge, it’s a great time to start capturing memories. Whether they are pushing up, sitting, or standing.

I’ve worked with babies and their families for nearly 18 years, even before I had my own daughter (currently 13 going on 15), so I have experienced it all 🙂

I love watching them grow, and often my families in the past have returned with a new sibling for a new photo shoot. Every portrait session is as unique as the family I am photographing.

I look forward to working with you to create beautiful, timeless portraits you’re proud to share and enjoy for a long time.

Exceptional photo studio in a stunning location. Sue is a great photographer. We booked a maternity shoot and the final photos are superb. Great images, great products too. She is really friendly and very, very creative. Highly recommended if you are looking for a maternity or family photo shoot. Worth every single penny.

So Thankful to Sue for taking such lovely photos of my daughter, we had 3 sessions and couldnt believe how much your little one changes so much in that little time. We went to Sue for my Son photos too. We find the studio very warm, cosy& welcoming, despite the odd shoot my daughter at 18mths was not in the mood one session but what a great photo we will get to show her when shes older. Lovely memories to hold on too. I recommend Sue Kennedy photography.

Had another really good newborn session with Sue. She was great with the baby and was happy for us to tend to him when needed. And also really good with our whirlwind 2 year old running around.
