Hi, I’m Sarah. I've been a photographer for many years, in fact one of my earliest memories is of making prints in my dad's wardrobe darkroom when I was very tiny. I have a first class degree in Photography and I work in a college as a photography teacher, as well as running my portrait business and teaching classes privately. My favourite studio is the great outdoors with its lovely natural light. My most-used props are flowers, leaves and puddles.
I live in Earley in Reading, Berkshire, UK. I love exploring and I'm happy to travel, but please ask me for a quote if you're outside the Reading area.
The price of a natural outdoor photo session (family, maternity, newborn etc) is £220. This includes the session and at least 16 full-sized, professionally edited digital files, ready for you to print and share as you wish. I also offer other packages, see below. I give discounts to returning customers (20% off), and to anyone who signs my model release form (10% off) as this allows me to use the pictures on my website and to promote my business. Certain sessions are half price in January, February and March.
Natural outdoor session - 16+ images - £220
Bump to Baby - maternity and newborn session - 16+ images per session - £330
Four Seasons - four separate mini sessions spring/summer/autumn/winter (in any order!) - 8+ images per session - a final set of four favourite prints, mounted together and ready to frame - normally £390, but only £290 if you book a summer 2018 start!
Reviews on Facebook:
"I came across Sarah's photographs online and loved the natural style, using the outdoors and natural lighting and so contacted her to see if she would be willing to do a maternity photoshoot. She was highly professional from our initial contact all the way through to the photoshoot itself and beyond. She was able to advise on suitable locations for the shoot and enabled us to be relaxed from start to finish. We received our photos in a timely manner - even earlier than we had expected and they were beautiful. The images will be ones that we treasure forever and I will not hesitate to contact Sarah again for our next family photoshoot."
"We wanted some family pictures but with two lively toddlers and all of us a bit camera shy, I wasn't sure how well it would go. Sarah made it so relaxed, and the photos are so natural. Definitely going to get more when the kids are a bit bigger!"
"Very highly recommend! Such beautiful photos which are captured in a really relaxed, natural environment."

"Aww Sarah they are amazing!! Like works of art!! These will definitely be going up in the wall!! Beautiful moments with A and her daddy. Plus the baby photos are gorgeous! I really like how the one of all of us in the grass field have turned out. I was a bit worried about the wind. But if anything it has added movement to the pictures. You are truly amazing!! Thank you so much. Lovely to have the spring garden and now the summer meadow! We will treasure these forever!! Can't wait to get these up on social media to show everyone. I'm sure more of my friends will want a shoot now!!"
"Oh my goodness - I love them. My thought going through was what an awesome family I have and how lucky we are!"
"Thanks so much for these pictures! They are just so lovely! We are really pleased with them, it was just what we were hoping for. Thank you. Thanks for a lovely day and walk, and for capturing all these moments for us. We had a fab time and are delighted to have such beautiful pictures to remember this time as a new family."
