We did the baby bundle with Sue and we are so happy that we did! 

We treasure our family photos and have various ones on the wall which make us smile every day!

Sue was so good at capturing our boy’s personality and his smile! I think the baby bundle was really good value for money, our final box with the 30 prints in is such good quality!

Thank you Sue for such a lovely experience xx

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 first appointment, think about what you would like to do with your chosen photographs, and measure your walls.

Most families opt to build a portrait box across all three sessions, but you can order individual printed products after each session too.

In reality, you are probably going to love more than one, and that’s why my most popular option is to build a portrait box over all three portrait sessions so you know exactly what the cost will be for the year. Many clients also top up with wall art. This combination of the two, perfect for when it’s just too hard to choose. These 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.

Prices start from £450

Baby Photoshoot FAQ’s

When’s the best time to book first portrait session?

When you are ready is the short answer.

I can capture the lying/snuggling baby in arms phase anytime between 0-4 months.

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.

Some parents prefer to wait until their baby is 4 months old to start capturing their baby’s character.

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 work to their current development stage, capturing their character & personality.

When should baby photos be taken?

On this plan – at 4 monthly intervals. Typically when your baby is pushing up, sitting and standing.

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 for the first session, 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.
