We understand that organising your child’s inaugural birthday bash is a lot of fun, and so is is planning their First Birthday Portrait.

This session carries immense significance, as the resulting photographs will adorn your home’s walls for many years to come.

And, let’s be honest … there’s truly nothing more delightful than witnessing a baby joyfully dive into a cake!

Sue was professional and interacted with my little boy in a way that captured his personality perfectly.

The photographs she produced were stunning, images we will treasure forever of our baby.

The whole experience was easy, from booking the appointment electronically to meeting Sue and feeling completely at ease when she took control of the room.

Would highly recommend Sue’s services.

As a mum and professional photographer, I understand the importance of capturing every precious moment of your child’s life.

My love for children’s photography stems from my own experience of watching my child grow and change, and my desire to remember every detail of their childhood.

I want to help you freeze time and remember your child’s first birthday milestone forever. I aim to make the process of having a first birthday photo session and creating beautiful portrait artwork easy for busy parents.

Let’s celebrate your child’s special day in style.
