Where did that time go.....

Welcome to my baby photography page. I am a South London baby photographer and I have been photographing babies in London for the last 12 years. 

Haven’t those first months gone by so quickly in a whirlwind of feeding, nappy changes, sleepless nights and endless cuddles and love? Already your baby is smiling and giggling, doing tummy time, grabbing their feet, sitting up. A baby photography session in London is perfect for capturing these milestones in your baby’s life, with beautiful memories you will cherish forever.

"I would like to recommend Sara-Jane, for a baby photography session in South London, She took some lovely pictures of my 4-month old baby. He was in a rather grumpy mood on the day but from the pictures you really would not tell! Managed to capture his smiley cheeky side and very happy with the result! Can't wait to show the grandparents."

"We had an incredibly relaxing experience with Sara-Jane when she came to our home to take some amazing photos of our baby boy. Her interaction throughout the whole process was very natural. Subsequently, the photos we have are priceless and memories we will forever cherish. The best baby photographer in South London for sure!"

Your baby photography session is held at your home or favourite outdoor location in London. My style is fun, relaxed and natural – I make funny noises, jump around and am generally quite silly to get your baby to laugh! As well as posed images, I love to take photos in baby’s nursery and of them doing things that make them happy, such as playing with toys, reading or splashing in the bath. Family and older siblings are also welcome to be in photos too.

For babies under 3 months please see my Newborn Photography page.




Includes pre-session consultation, 1-2 hour baby photoshoot at your London home, preparation of your gallery and in-person/ online ordering appointment.

I know you will love your images but there is no obligation to buy if you don’t. Note that your session fee will be deducted from the collection cost.

Prints & Products

Your baby photography session is held at your South London home (East London, West London and Central London also covered), which is more relaxing for you as you don’t have to organise yourself to leave the house and you have all your baby things to hand!  I will set up in your bedroom and throw a blanket over the bed to make a background. For family photos I will pose you against a blank wall. I bring a flash so no need to worry if your room is dark. And I am used to working in small bedrooms, so as long as I can walk around the bed, no room is too small!

Once your baby is sitting up, your baby photoshoot can also be held outside in your favourite London park.  

Baby photoshoots can take up to 2 hours. I only book one baby photography session per day, so we can work around your baby’s nap times. Sessions aren’t timed so I won’t leave until I know I have captured all of the photos you want!

I will take a variety of photos – close ups, full body, with your baby’s favourite toy, tummy time, sitting etc. I will also take photos of your baby doing things they love like standing in the cot, splashing in the bath or climbing the stairs.

Older children and parents can be included in photos too. With family photos I can take both traditional posed portraits and natural images of you playing with your baby. 

Although I am a South London baby photographer I also provide baby photography sessions in Central London, West London and East London too. I will travel up to an hour (c10 miles) within London and Surrey. Anything over this will incur an additional travel charge.

Light colours are best – doesn’t need to be totally plain but avoid too many patterns/ logos. Accessories such as hats always make fun photos, as does the inclusion of their favourite toy! Siblings should be coordinated! You can have a couple of outfit changes during the session if you want to.

For you and your partner, it’s best to wear light, non-patterned clothes that are coordinated with each other and your baby. Similar tones work best especially for black and white photos.

You are to welcome to send me a screenshot of your proposed outfits before the session so that I can advise if they work.

I have spent a lot of time with babies so I am pretty patient when it comes to waiting for your baby to warm up. I don’t time sessions so there is always plenty of time to for you to feed or cuddle your baby if they need it.

In the rare occasion that they don’t cheer up, I will come back another day when they are in a happier mood. Sessions are also totally flexible if your baby is sick, there is no point trying to take photos of a poorly baby. 

The baby photography session fee is payable on booking. Payment for digital images, prints and products is due at the time of ordering. 

After your photoshoot, I will provide 20-30 images for you to view in a mix of colour and black and white. Viewings are via an in-person ordering appointment or online gallery. I aim to provide your images for you to view within one week of the shoot.

Orders must be made at the ordering appointment or within one week of your online gallery being posted. I sell digital images, prints, albums and various wall art products. 

Digital images are professionally retouched with blemishes, scratches, baby dribble etc removed. High resolution images with full printing rights are provided either via We Transfer download or on a USB.
