Portrait photography of Children by Sue Kennedy Photography ltd
_52A5015 (Sue Kennedy’s conflicted copy 2019-01-12)
I love watching the emerging personalities of our babies, whether brand new or going on 16, documenting the changes, that to me is what family photography is all about, capturing childhood.
Natural, fun images of laughter & play. The interaction between you & them as you spend time together.
Yes, I do aim to include parents in all my photo sessions!
My style is very natural and timeless, because that’s what I want to create for you, something timeless that you’ll want to show off forever. I offer a variety of different session types covering bump, through to childhood.
After the session, I’ll book you in for a viewing, usually a few days later, and explain all the artwork options.
I promise you there is no hard selling, you can purchase as little or as much as you want, and don’t worry, I’ve got a number of different options to make sure you get the images that I know you’ll love.
Where are you based?
Your photo session will take place at my comfortable studio at Parndon Mill, on the edge of Harlow, Essex, CM20 2HP. The session is designed to be relaxed and fun for both you and your child or baby. Directions to the studio can be found here, but I also send them when I confirm your booking.
How much does it all cost?
The simple answer is : your session booking fee + products = your investment.
Session Booking fees are £100 for baby (6 weeks+), child, or cake smash session, £125 for a newborn, & £225 for the package of three ‘Baby Club’ watch me grow sessions. This allows for up to one hour with me in my Essex studio (2-3 hours for newborn), my time, knowledge & skills throughout your session, and preparation of a custom viewing session with 15 – 25 beautifully enhanced images to select from. Your session booking fee does not include any products. These can be purchased at your viewing appointment a few days later.
Products – I have a huge range of products including, Wall Art (canvas art wraps, traditional frames and contemporary floating prints), printable images on a USB, albums and other print options. Prices range from £65 to £895. After your studio session I’ll walk you through my studio and explain in detail all the different options. You’ll also get a product and price list to take away and look through before your viewing. To view a short video of the product options click here.

What should I bring?
Bump: Figure hugging clothes; leggings and a vest top that can be rolled up to reveal your bump for example.
Newborn: Just a nappy is best, but it’s a good idea to bring their blanket so they have something familiar to lie on initially. Nice memories like hospital tags, the first bear/toy and some of the cards you received are worth bringing along, as these make nice details shots for an album or collage that adds to the story of your new arrival.
Baby aged 4-6 months old: Just a nappy ideally! Cute hats are good too. If you prefer them to be dressed then pick something that fits well, and allows us to see their little toes and hands.
Baby aged 8-10 months old: By this stage they are sitting, and starting to crawl, so keep it simple with clothes that fit well and that they are comfortable in. Texture is good, so lace, frills or denim all work well and to add some character please feel free to bring hats, tutus or their favourite toy. By this age we can usually manage an outfit change or two before they have had enough.
Baby/toddler aged 12-14 months old: Ideally they are standing, but not yet running! As for aged 8-10 months, but we may head outside, so bear in mind outer wear or come prepared to add layers.
Cake smash: I have outfits available, but something that can get messy is best. Plus a change of clothes for the journey home.
Children: Plain bold colours work best, but a bit of texture like denim or something knitted looks stunning in black and white too.
