Baby Photography

for Parents in Essex and Hertfordshire.

My approach is to deliver a relaxed professional baby photo session that captures natural, candid moments of your baby in a comfortable and stress-free environment.

It’s ALL about your baby and our photo sessions place a strong focus on the connection and the love that you feel – the way she snuggles into your arms and how you look at her.

Ultimately, the age that is best for baby photography is the age that you feel is right for your family and what you want to remember about this special time in your baby’s life.

A session booking fee of £125 is payable when you book, and then it is whatever you choose to invest in your photographs on top, additional portraits start from £85.

This is perfect for you if you missed out on newborn photos…

There are many reasons you may have missed out on having photos of your baby taken earlier, so let’s simply get that sorted and celebrate your baby as they are now.  

Life gets very busy with a new baby around, but the good news is there are lots of cute milestones to capture, so your baby’s age is no barrier to when you plan their photo session for.

We set no time limits when you can book a session for. We simply work with your baby’s development stage during their first year to capture beautiful photos reflecting them.

You can book multiple photo sessions to cover the different stages of their first year – watch me grow style: lying, sitting and standing with our Baby Milestone Plan.




Whether they are brand new or starting to sit.



I offer an all-inclusive baby mini-session option too. 

“I kept meaning to book a baby photoshoot!”

– said every parent who brings their 2-year-old in for a photoshoot. Better late than never though!

Your photo session. We have photographed lots of baby’s and know how to make beautiful portraits of this new chapter of your family, that your child/ren will enjoy looking back on. 

We’ll send you a prep guide, a few days before, but happy to answer questions.

Please allow up to an hour, and there is plenty of free parking available at my Studio at Parndon Mill, Harlow, Essex, CM20 2HP.



About a week after your photo session you’ll return to the studio to view your finished photographs.

Before the appointment, have a think about what you would like to do with your chosen photographs, and measure your walls.

Do you want them printed big for the wall, and/or as a print collection in a handmade portrait box that you can look through at any time?


Your Baby Photo Session




 At our studio in Harlow, Essex. Allow up to an hour. 

A £125 baby portrait session fee is required on booking and covers our time, creativity, and editing of photos. This does not include any products.

There is no obligation to choose anything other than what you love on the day of your big reveal a few days after your portrait session.



At your viewing and ordering appointment, a week later, you will see your beautiful photographs, and this is your opportunity to purchase.

Most clients opt for wall art, either as a single photograph or a collection of photographs together in a frame for their wall at home. Those that do not want to hang wall art have the option of filling a portrait box with their favourite photos. A final option is a combination of the two, perfect for when it’s just too hard to choose. All options come with matching digital files to make sharing with family easier.

Art For Your Walls

Display your favourite photo or a collection of photos on your wall at home. Hanging portraits at home is a great way to show your children how important they are to you, and they become more of a talking point as they grow.

Portrait Box

Perfect for those that want individual mounted prints. Simply choose your favourite 10, 15 or 20 photographs for display in your portrait box and customise the cover with your baby’s name.

A Bit of Both!

My collections offer the best value and enable you to have a wall art collection, AND a portrait box of your favourites as individual prints with matching digital files.

Baby Photoshoot FAQ’s

When’s the best time to book our natural baby photo experience?

When you are ready is the short answer.

If you would like to capture the very early days, then booking ahead whilst you are pregnant is wise, particularly if you want a Saturday appointment, but I have no rules on how old baby must be at the time of our appointment.

Some parents prefer to wait for the 30 day or 100 day milestone.

How long will a baby photography session last?

Allow a good hour.

Our style of baby photography is very natural and unposed.  We prefer to capture babies at their most natural – awake or asleep – showing their size, their teeny details, and their newness.

For older baby photography we are bed led and work to their current development stage, capturing their character & personality.

When should baby photos be taken?

Your baby can be photographed at ANY time.

This article ‘What is best for baby photos?’ gives more insight.

What happens if my baby needs a nappy change?

Please do. We have a changing mat or space for you to use your own. We have already factored this into our timings for portrait sessions.

How should I dress my baby for the photos?

The answer varies depending on their age, and we will send you a prep guide to assist you with clothing choices. A simple vest or body suits work well, just leave the baby equivalent of the Hawaiian shirt at home.

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



Thank You to Sue for our beautiful photos for the newborn photo session that captured the moment perfectly. highly recommend!

I will treasure these photos forever.



The pictures were beautiful. I love all the pictures she has taken, wish I could buy them all. It was worth every penny though and Sue was flexible enough to let us spread the payments.

All the presentation was done beautifully, I was very touched & got emotional every time with happy tears. Thank you Sue! I would definitely recommend!

“I’m Sue & I’m thrilled about helping you to tell your family’s story in photographs.”

I absolutely believe you should print the photos that you love, hang them on the wall and enjoy them everyday.

Someone once said to me “digitals are temporary, prints are generational.” And it’s true.

I offer both options and will guide you through each step of your portrait experience, at my studio in Harlow, Essex.  

As a mother myself, I know how priceless those framed photos of my daughter are. And I want the same for you.
