Professional Newborn, Baby, Child, Family & Maternity Photographer based in South London, covering London and Surrey. Natural, baby-led photography in your own home or at your favourite outdoor location.



Hi there! I'm Sara-Jane, a professional newborn, baby, child, family & pregnancy photographer from South London, specialising in natural portraits taken in the comfort of your own home. I love photography and am passionate about capturing beautiful images for you to treasure for generations to come. Click to find out more about me.

Newborn sessions take place at your home, which is more relaxing for you than a studio as you have all the things you need to hand and don’t have to organise yourself to leave the house in those first chaotic couple of weeks! I don't time your session, allowing plenty of time for you to feed, cuddle and settle your baby. My style is very natural; while I do have some cute hats etc I don't believe in putting a baby in a basket or hanging them from a tree! Sessions are entirely baby-led, with the safety of your baby the most important thing, so I don’t put them into any poses they are not comfortable doing.

Baby, child and family sessions can be at your home or your favourite outdoor location (such as one of the fantastic parks in London or Surrey). My style is fun, relaxed and informal, which puts your little ones at ease and allows their personalities to shine through in my pictures. I make funny noises, jump around and am generally quite silly to get your children to laugh! I can also photograph special occasions such as your baby's christening or child's birthday party.

Maternity sessions can be at your home or outdoors if you would like me to photograph your bump in a natural setting! We can do a variety of poses, with bump out if you wish, including older siblings and partner too. Click to view my pregnancy photography gallery.

"Sara-Jane has taken pictures of my daughter twice (6 months) and my 6 year old, once. The first time I walked away feeling convinced that my then 18 week old had just wasted the photo time as she has been particularly grumpy. How wrong was I! Sara-Jane produced the most gorgeous pictures of my grump, who was then signed (on the back of the photos) to an agency for tv/modelling work. Needless to say, we went back for another shoot with our two children and decided to do it in Dulwich Park. I walked away again, worried that we hadn't quite captured the children at their best, but again - shouldn't have worried. Sara-Jane has captured the MOST beautiful pictures I've ever seen of my two, and I'm having to sit on my hands to not share them yet and post them on Facebook (as I'm going to give some as presents to grandparents!) - very difficult for an over sharer like me ;) Sara-Jane had SO much patience with our 2 and a great eye, she is just so talented. Book a session, you absolutely will NOT be disappointed" Elle from South London. See here for more happy clients.
